The thing that our patients love about our office is that we provide more than just manipulations, adjustments, and alignments. It is very important to use both chiropractic treatments AND rehabilitative exercises. This makes sure that you get the best care, the best results. This is proven by a lot of studies done over the last few years.
So what does it look like to combine chiropractic care and rehabilitative exercises? And why is it so important to combine them?
When a patient comes in with pain, my goal as a chiropractor is not only to give pain relief. It is my goal to also correct any imbalances and strengthen the area of injury. That way you can be more resilient to injury.
Chiropractic care can include manual muscle work, joint mobilization, or instrument assisted soft tissue techniques. The goal with these is to reduce pain or improve range of motion.
Chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a variety of issues. It is not limited to a few injuries. Common injuries or areas of pain that we can treat (but not limited to) car accident injuries, such as neck and shoulder injuries or whiplash. We also work with common athlete injuries such as elbow, hamstring, and shoulder-related injuries.
The biggest benefit of chiropractic treatment is how versatile it is. Even better, we provide a natural and holistic approach. We make sure to take into account your entire medical history when we first meet.
78% of American prefer a non-pharmacologic approach to managing physical pain! Our country has been devistated by the opioid pandemic. By choosing a natural and holistic approach to care, you get 2 things:
1) becoming pain-free
2) solve the root case to your pain.
The goal is always to find the root cause of the issue. That way we can make sure that you can return to activity with any fear of re-injuring yourself!
Let's talk about why chiropractic treatment goes better when combined with rehabilitative exercises.
A combined approach will allow a patient to sustain their results. It helps you become self-sufficient. It keeps you from "always having to go back to get re-aligned". The goal of rehab exercises in a treatment plan is to improve your strengh, felxibility , and mobility. By doing this, you can reduce the chances of re-injuring. We do this by getting to the root cause of the issue.
At Capital Sports Medicine, we want our patients to be partners in their recovery. This is essential to helping you achieve and keep your results.
One of the ways we do this is by choosing exercises and movements that will attack the root cause of your pain. We also make sure that they are easy to practice. As symptoms resolve, we increase the challenge by adding speed or instability. This increase in difficulty allows you to be prepared for whatever life throws at you.
As much as we love our patients, we don't want to keep seeing you! We say the job is done when we release you from care for the long haul.
At Capital Sports Medicine, you are more than just a number. We design your rehab and treatment plan to meet your needs!. You are assessed thoroughly at your initial evaluation. A plan is made taking account for: areas of pain/injury, tolerances, past injury/treatment and overall goals.
