Medical Doctor Evaluation
Our medical doctor evaluates every patient and works side by side with our team to provide the best treatment possible. Auto Insurance requires all auto accident patients to receive an evaluation to determine if an Emergency Medical Condition is present to unlock their benefits. Our medical doctor can provide this evaluation and determine if you need further treatment.
A bodily movement is prescribed to correct an impairment, improve musculoskeletal function or maintain a state of well-being. It may vary from highly selected activities restricted to specific muscles or parts of the body to general and vigorous activities that can help an injured patient get to their optimal health. Therapeutic exercise seeks to accomplish the following goals:
• Enable ambulation
• Release contracted muscles, tendons and fascia
• Mobilize joints
• Improve circulation
• Improve coordination and balance
• Reduce pain
• Improve muscle strength and, if possible, stabilize an injured area
• Improve exercise performance after an injury
Manual Therapy is a clinical approach utilizing skilled, specific hands-on techniques, including but not limited to manipulation, mobilization and trigger point to treat soft tissues and joint structures for the purpose of reducing pain, increasing range of motion (ROM), reducing or eliminating soft tissue inflammation, inducing relaxation, improving contractile and non-contractile tissue repair, extensibility, and/or stability, facilitating movement and improving function.
Adjustments, or manipulation as they’re sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebra into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort.
The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident. When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can’t function at our peak.
Intersegmental Traction is a treatment table used to induce motion into the spine and decrease pain. This table consists of rollers that gently roll up and down your spine while the table gently vibrates. This therapy is very beneficial to the health of your spine by increasing the range of motion of your spine and also improving the circulation of the spinal fluid that covers the spinal cord and gives it its nutrition. This is very helpful in preventing disc degeneration and “slipped discs.” This treatment is loved by most of or patients as most ask to take the table home with them after each treatment!
