Chiropractic care and the holistic principles associated with many of our treatments continue to grow in popularity, with individuals struggling to deal with joint, back and musculoskeletal discomfort. Without effective treatment, even a seemingly minor or acute problem can gradually worsen into a chronic condition that impacts your overall quality of life.

Our chiropractors and team are proud to have helped a significant number of individuals reduce and recover from problems with lower back pain, neck pain and personal injuries, as well as issues with general discomfort. Our treatment plans are developed with a personal touch based on a variety of factors.

The process starts with an initial chiropractic examination, which may include other tests and diagnostics as well as recording an accurate medical history. This information will be factored in with your pain level and personal preferences to develop an effective treatment plan.

Manual adjustments, instrument aided adjustments, therapeutic massage and other treatment techniques can often provide an immediate reduction in discomfort. With many of these cases, simple stretches and basic exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home to maximize your results.

Simple flexion, abduction and resistance band exercises can help strengthen muscles and connective tissues to better stabilize a compromised joint. Many forms of exercise increase blood flow to the nearby soft tissues, which can aid in the healing process and potentially reduce localized inflammation. Targeted therapeutic stretches can also help improve your range of motion and overall mobility.

Some of these motions may be difficult for individuals with limited mobility or certain medical conditions. Make sure to let us know about any existing conditions being treated by your primary physician or any past injuries. When necessary, our chiropractor might also recommend performing a fitness evaluation to determine your overall ability to safely perform a specific exercise or stretching motion.

With all this information in hand, we can then carefully instruct you on how to perform the activity in the comfort of your own home. As time goes on, you may need to schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your progress or to perform an additional treatment.

Should you experience discomfort, excessive stiffness or some other complication, you should stop performing the exercise and contact our office at your earliest convenience.

If you have been dealing with neck pain, back pain, joint discomfort or a musculoskeletal injury, you should call to set up an appointment at our clinic.
