Physical therapy is often prescribed as a follow-up treatment to chiropractic services. The gentle application of muscular massage increase range of motion through controlled exercises and other healing manipulations causing the patient to experience a feeling of well being and return to good health.
Our therapists use a hands-on approach accessing standard protocols and conjunctive modalities as needed. Treatments may consist of:
Consisting of release techniques which stretch the contracted areas and target strengthening of muscle groups, soft tissue circulation and joint range of motion. These myofascial release techniques enhance muscle energy and release muscle tension. Your back, neck, or other painful areas are returned to healthy and pain-free status.
The use of moist heat opens the pores of the skin, promotes expansion of underlying tissues causing increased bloodflow to the affected area.
The use of sound waves to improve the release of muscle energy and tension while quieting nerves and surrounding tissues.
Is reported to enhance the delivery of certain analgesics and anti-inflammatory agents topically applied by application of ultrasound.
This non-invasive method of inducing the absorption of high concentrations of medication transdermally by applying a low electrical charge to the effected area. The positive ions created by the charge attract and repel. The effect is to increase absorption of medication.
The foundation of physical therapy treatment and recovery is the customized exercise plan. In a controlled setting, range of motion is measured and increased during work sessions which incorporate applying heat and cold to the affected areas as well as other referenced techniques. The objective is to safely return you to full motion and pain free use of the damaged or affected area. Stretching of muscle tendons and expansion of joint motion are accomplished during this process.
