We specialize in correcting your body’s misalignments. Our goal is to ensure that your spine and the rest of your body are working harmoniously. To do so, we will help you develop a plan that will require light stretching, some exercise, chiropractic care, and a healthy diet.
This method identifies misalignments and places where spinal discs may be pressing on nerve roots. Spinal manipulation seeks to restore balance to alleviate pain.
Trigger point Therapy & Dry Needling
Trigger point therapy is a type of massage therapy that identifies the origin of your pain and targets the trigger points. It breaks up waste clusters around the nerves and tissues to ease the pain. Dry needling is a similar treatment that involves the insertion of several filiform needles into the patient’s skin at key points throughout the body. These therapies are used for sports injury treatment, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, post-surgical pain, migraines, and more.
Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints.
It is important to understand that often times where the pain presents is not the area that needs to be treated. The pain may be due to that area compensating and being over-worked from another area not pulling its weight. Our rehabilitation program includes strength, flexibility and agility training as well as training focused on coordination of body parts and motion to prepare the individual to return to full participation.
Various forms of massages help relax surface tissues and break up scar tissue. Massage therapy can help with a variety of issues, including circulatory problems, sleep issues, repetitive motion injuries, neck and back pain, and mood disorders.
Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine while using a traction table. The goal is to relieve back pain and/or leg pain. Our chiropractor also works to promote an optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerated, or herniated discs.
Spinal decompression is a type of therapy applied to the spine that brings patients many benefits. First, we attempt to create a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or re-positioning of the herniated or bulging disc material. Secondly, we create a lower pressure in the disc that will cause an influx of healing nutrients as well as other substances into the disc.
Our chiropractor sticks pads on the parts of your body where you feel pain. Electrical impulses help symptoms such as inflammation and muscle spasms. They can also encourage bone regrowth.
Chiropractic care is one of the best non-surgical treatments that can help you enjoy optimal injury recovery, health, comfort, and wellness. Special exercises and stretches combined with chiropractic care can reduce pain and increase mobility. We use rehabilitation to treat lower and upper back pain, neck pain, legs, arms, chronic illness, and other injuries.
f you live in Carrollton, TX, you can benefit from the rehabilitation services we offer at Back in Motion Chiropractic. Below are some of the ways we help patients suffering from chronic injuries, sports injuries, or various other injuries. We will design a rehabilitation program that fits your unique needs.
Rehabilitation exercise restores and strengthens weak or damaged muscles. These exercises encourage muscle movement, allowing healing to occur at a quicker pace. Special exercises are designed to treat injuries and illness. Our chiropractor might use training devices along with the exercises, depending on what is best for the patient. Rehabilitation helps with inflammation and works to heal the problem area causing pain and limited mobility.
Hot and Cold Therapy
In some instances, we might apply ice to the parts of the body that are inflamed due to a work injury, sports injury, or chronic pain to minimize the inflammation. If you are suffering from sharp, numb pain, we can use ice to work as an analgesic temporarily. On the contrary, by applying heat, our chiropractor will help to enhance blood flow to the injured area. More nutrients and oxygen will be delivered to the injury site leading to faster recovery.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points can happen when the muscle fibers become hyper-irritated such that they produce chronic pain in some regions of your body. In this case, we might use trigger point therapy to help in controlling your pain by focusing on your trigger points. This therapy will also encompass corrective exercises and passive stretching to enhance the range of motion and strength of patients suffering from work or sports injuries.
Electro Wave Therapy
Electro Wave therapy is referred to as “focused shock wave” therapy. Patients who are constantly dealing with acute or chronic pain look to chiropractic care and Electro Wave therapy to help them find the relief they need to live a full and happy life. By using both treatments together, patients get a more complete healing on a much deeper level.
What Is Electro Wave Therapy?
Electro wave therapy is a non-invasive therapy that sends pulses of acoustic sound waves deep into your joints and soft tissues to stimulate the growth of new cells that can replace those that are damaged due to illness or injury. With the use of these laser therapies, recovery time is much shorter, there are fewer side effects, and the body’s own healing resources are stimulated without having to cut into the affected area.
Electro wave therapy is an extremely valuable tool when dealing with injury recovery. Shock wave therapy can be effective when treating conditions like arthritis, tendonitis, and bursitis that are normally characterized by muscle pain or tendon pain. This type of chronic pain treatment can even help in repairing old injuries that have been a problem for many years. When it comes to joint-related injuries, Electro wave therapy offers patients a treatment option that has few side effects and encourages the body to use its own healing abilities.
Electro Wave Therapy and Chiropractic Care
Electro wave therapy and chiropractic care go hand in hand when treating various types of pain. Our chiropractor uses shock wave therapy to target various types of joint injuries and illnesses that affect the musculoskeletal system. When used together, both chronic pain treatment options work together to support the benefits of the other. Combining multiple treatment options into one comprehensive care plan gives you the best chance for full recovery.
