A good Chiropractic doctor knows that lasting recovery from physical injury is accomplished through an approach that considers more than just short-term relief, but an individualized plan for effective and long-term recovery. The best way to accomplish this goal is through four phases of care.
Palliative - procedures like spinal adjustment and/or soft tissue therapy help address and alleviate a patient’s initial pain.
Restorative - therapy administered once initial pain or discomfort is reduced. Mechanical correction of the spine and its associated extremities is accomplished through different Chiropractic techniques. Soft tissue therapy and/or spinal adjusting restores motion and flexibility,which adds greatly to recovery.
Motor Control Training/Strengthening - Strengthening, once a patient is out of pain and able to function and move better, the muscles and soft tissue structures surrounding the spine and other joints in the body. This helps prevent future dysfunctions that can cause pain to return.
Wellness - progressive rehab exercises, spinal adjusting, and proper patient education to maintain long-term health and wellness.
A combination of Chiropractic and targeted massage is the best approach to relieving musculoskeletal pain. Unlike general massage, a sports therapist provides muscular therapy and specific massage, custom tailored to match an injury and physical condition. The result is increased blood circulation, reduced swelling, relaxed muscles, relief of muscle pain and spasm, and a recovery and range of motion.
No matter who you are, regular chiropractic care makes an obvious difference in performance and overall well-being. Chiropractic allows you to replace medications that can slow you down for a more lasting path to a pain-free life. This is accomplished by:
Reducing inflammatory cytokines
