Chiropractic Care for PT Benefits
The main benefit of receiving physical therapy through a chiropractor is gaining the ability to bring both the joints and muscles to a functioning level that is normal. All methods used are drug-free and non-invasive. Physical therapy that is done through a chiropractor allows your entire body to reap the benefits instead of just one area.
When you come in for your first visit to our office, our chiropractors will work by first getting as much background information as possible from you regarding your health. This is vital information that will be used to design a care plan fit just for you. There may be some instances where one of our chiropractors will suggest an x-ray to get more information on what exactly is going on with your joints and muscles.
When you come for physical therapy sessions, your joints and muscles will be stretched and worked thoroughly. Spinal adjustments and massage therapy may also be incorporated into your treatments depending on the severity of your injury and pain.
Treatments typically last anywhere between 10-20 minutes, depending on your individual needs. Some patients are told to schedule appointments over a course of months to maintain the health of their nervous system. The goal of physical therapy is to empower the patient to prevent any problems from occurring in the future. Sometimes, patients can benefit from hot or cold therapy, ultrasound therapy, or electrical stimulation.
