CHIROPRACTOR PHYSICAL THERAPY
Here at BackFit Health + Spine, we believe in relieving pain with a multi-faceted approach. Instead of just using one technique or treatment, we understand that injuries and chronic pain are as individual as each patient. That is why, in addition to chiropractic care, we also provide and recommend chiropractic physical therapy at all 7 of our locations in Phoenix, Mesa, Gilbert, Tempe, Queen Creek, Chandler and Chandler-Ocotillo. Physiotherapy is enormously helpful and complements chiropractic care, which helps our patients get better and enjoy their regular activities faster.
CHIROPRACTOR PHYSICAL THERAPY ACCELERATES HEALING TOGETHER
What is Physiotherapy?
Physical therapy is a discipline that involves drug-free methods such as stretches, exercises, massage and other physiotherapy techniques designed to relax, retrain and recondition muscles that have been injured in some way. Chiropractor physical therapy is useful for recovery from car accident injuries, sports injuries, and personal injuries as well as repetitive stress injuries and chronic conditions that affect the movement and function of the muscles. Backfit staff consists of the best physical therapists in Arizona and physical therapy is one of the chiropractor services we recommend to all our patients.
How does Physical Therapy Help Relieve Pain?
Physical therapy is a strong and welcome addition to chiropractic care. Both methods are drug-free and non-invasive, but highly effective at accomplishing the goal of pain relief. Chiropractic spinal adjustments can correct spinal alignment so that pinched nerves are released, and pressure is taken off of injured discs, thus improving pain management. This removes nervous system interference and enables the brain to send important signals through the nerves to the rest of the body. If muscles are poorly conditioned, the spine will move right back out of place. With physical therapy, however, our physical therapists address the total health of the spine and body.
How We Do It?
Our physical therapists work directly with our chiropractors and patients to design rehabilitation programs that address their individual needs. Your physical therapist will teach you the correct form for your individual exercises and stretches, and guide you through them at the clinic first, so that you feel comfortable and confident doing them at home. During regular appointments, we assess your progress and adjust exercises and stretches as necessary to keep you on target for a full recovery.
What Can You Do?
A word about form from Backfit physical therapists: correct exercise form is important for two main reasons. When you are performing your exercises correctly, as the physical therapist directs during physiotherapy, you should get the most therapeutic benefit from the work. Muscles get stronger and more flexible. Also, an incorrect form can potentially cause further injury and throw your recovery out of balance. Pay close attention to form at all times.
We provide chiropractic physical therapy at all 7 of our offices in the area. Our physical therapists are always ready to help. To ask any questions or to schedule an appointment, please contact the BackFit Health + Spine office most convenient to you today.
