How Can Chiropractic Help Me?
Decreased function can lead to injury and pain. Chiropractic helps minimize pain and maximize function by the use of adjustments, therapeutic exercise, postural training and physiotherapy.
We carefully monitor pain, tissue healing and function using specific outcome measures to know when you have achieved maximum benefit.
We will show you strengthening and stretching exercises, teach you how to correct postural problems, how to bend and lift properly, and how to maintain better ergonomics at your job site. Additionally, an integral part of your rehabilitation program will include self-care and prevention methods to help you stay well and reduce your chances of re-injury.
What Is Chiropractic Treatment?
We focus on treatment of musculoskeletal conditions that have strong evidence for the effectiveness of chiropractic care. We use scientifically sound evidence concepts to evaluate the effectiveness of our treatment for each patient as we determine whether to continue care, discharge, or refer to another type of provider.
We operate a low volume clinic, scheduling four patients per hour under normal circumstances. We use very mainstream, scientifically-valid examination procedures including standard orthopedic testing, range of motion evaluation, and palpation (both dynamic and static.)
We use very broadly-accepted, mainstream manual adjusting techniques and stationary tables. We are willing to incorporate any scientifically valid physiotherapy procedures that we are licensed to provide if we think they will cost-effectively hasten your recovery.
We feel an ethical obligation to do everything we can to help you avoid repeat episodes of your problem or to help you have less chronic pain, which is why we place a high priority on exercise, biomechanics, and other educational preventive measures.
What Can You Expect When You Visit Our Clinic?
We will consider it an appreciated privilege to have the opportunity to assist you in your journey toward optimal health.
We believe that a team approach will optimize patient recovery and we are happy to participate.
Your treatment protocol will be modified as medically necessary. If you are not seeing signs of improvement within a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the problem, we will consult with the most appropriate specialist, be it neurology, orthopedics, or pain management.
When Should You Consult One Our Licensed Chiropractors?
Our clinic is focused on neuromusculoskeletal injuries and pain. For the most part, pain, numbness, or tingling anywhere in your body makes you a possible candidate.
From our standpoint, these cases comprise the bulk of our practice and we enjoy those cases because our rate of success is very high. We have enjoyed a great deal of success in treating the following conditions:
· acute or chronic low back pain including sacroiliac problems
· acute or chronic mid back pain
· acute or chronic neck pain
· headaches (tension and migraine)
· pain radiating to arms or legs
· acute mechanical injuries and acute or chronic overuse-related pain
