Understanding Physical Therapy
Physical therapy is combines chiropractic treatments and physical therapy methods to help you with your recovery process. This therapy borrows manual chiropractic adjustments and other non-invasive methods from chiropractic care to help heal to muscles, joints, bones, cartilage, tissues, and nerves. Along with that, our chiropractor utilizes stretching and strengthening exercises and structured movements to reduce pain and break down scar tissue. We also provide guidance on how to manage your pain and prevent injuries from reoccurring.
Manual therapy realigns the spine, eases joint stiffness, and relieves soft tissue pain and muscle pain. Our chiropractor uses this to treat musculoskeletal problems and temporarily alleviate pain.
Therapeutic exercises include stretching and strengthening exercises that increase range of motion, mobility, and blood flow. Along with that, the exercises decrease pain and help prevent injuries from occurring again.
Therapeutic ultrasound reduces inflammation, decreases muscle and tissue tension, and improves blood flow.
Kinesiology taping helps with soft tissue manipulation. Not only that, but the technique also reduces inflammation and fluid buildup, increases blood flow, and helps you heal faster.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (“E-Stim”)
Electrical Muscle Stimulation, also known as E-Sti, enhances the incredible benefits of chiropractic care by strengthening muscles, speeding up recovery time, increasing mobility, and blocking pain receptors.
Cryotherapy reduces inflammation and helps alleviate pain with exposure to cold temperatures. The treatment decreases swelling, muscle tension, and muscle spasms. Along with that, it also improves circulation and helps your musculoskeletal system recover.
