If an injury or illness makes it difficult for you to complete your day-to-day tasks, physical therapy can provide pain relief and help increase your range of motion. The doctors at our medical clinic have extensive experience helping patients regain their full physical functionality. Come in for a consultation to find out more about the treatment options available to you.
Physical Therapy Treatment
Physical therapy treatments aim to improve your strength and range of motion, using methods that do not involve drugs or surgery. If a sports injury, workplace injury, car accident injury, or any other type of injury or condition is affecting your physical functionality, our doctors may recommend one or more of the following treatments:
Chiropractic Care: Whether or not your injury is directly related to your spine, chiropractic care can be highly beneficial. The condition of the spine affects the entire body. Not only does the spine provide structural support to the body, but it also protects the spinal cord—the pathway by which signals from the brain reach all other parts of the body. Therefor, your body cannot function at its best unless your spine is healthy.
Chiropractic adjustments are safe and non-invasive. The chiropractor will examine your spine to determine whether or not any of its vertebrae are out of proper alignment, and if so, a gentle technique is used to move each vertebra back into its correct position. Patients often report immediate pain relief upon adjustment.
Physiotherapy: Physiotherapy is a term that is used interchangeably with physical therapy. Physiotherapy uses natural (drug-free), hands-on techniques and exercises to restore mobility and help patients get back to their pre-injury level of physical capability.
Corrective Exercises: Part of your physical therapy plan may involve corrective exercises. Most corrective exercises can be done at home after the doctor demonstrates the proper technique and has you practice in the office during your visit. Corrective exercises help with pain relief and more rapid recovery, but they can also help prevent re-injury in the future by building strength and training your body in correct posture and movement.
