We feel that recovery
is a partnership situation. We do our part by relieving pain through chiropractic
therapy and manual therapy, along with support and the patient does their part.
We find that this partnership intensifies the recovery time and relieves the
patient's pain faster. It is a win-win treatment plan. The combined effectiveness
physical therapy, and exercise
rehabilitation can help improve motion, increase muscle strength, enhance
coordination and balance, and prevent your original health problem from returning
repeatedly. Overall, manipulation has the advantage of reducing pain, decreasing
medication, rapidly advancing physical therapy and requiring fewer passive modalities.1
