What can Physical Medicine Treat?
Physical medicine looks at your current physical state and how improvements will reduce pain, increase movement and improve strength. Each patient that comes in has different problems, whether they are known or unknown. Many of our patients come in for one issue and are amazed by what else has actually been affecting them without any noticeable symptoms. We combine the elements of physical medicine that will best work for your care and rehabilitation.
Who Benefits from Physical Medicine?
Typically, people only think to visit the doctor when they are experiencing severe pain or problematic symptoms. Our clinic encourages patients to get regular check ups to keep their whole body health in good standing. Clients often do not realize which symptoms should be addressed early on and what could be fixed with simple treatments. From headaches to shoulder pain, our clinic addresses nearly anything our patients throw at us!
Conditions Treated by Physical Medicine
Many of our patients are looking for pain relief without medications that cause dangerous side effects. Neck and back pain might be the most common issue, sometimes resulting from daily activity and other times inflicted by car accidents or injury. We see athletes that are struggling with strained muscles, joints or muscle spasms. We address painful joints or pinched nerves, as well as numbness, fatigue and headaches. We work with patients of all ages. Our patients might struggle with a known condition, like fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, or they might feel in top condition.
Physical Medicine Methods
We typically avoid medications and work to help your body heal naturally. The body is designed to heal itself – by improving the alignment and promoting healthy blood flow, we are able to encourage healing and reduce pain simultaneously. Our popular services include chiropractic alignments, orthopedics, physical examinations, preventative services, spinal manipulation, massage therapy, stress management and more.
