Physiotherapy at Sertell Chiropractic Clinic

Man and woman doing physical therapyMany people believe chiropractic care and physiotherapy are an either/or solution. In fact, the two work very well together! Integrating physiotherapy and chiropractic care can have better long-term benefits for patient care and treatment outcomes.

Physiotherapy is a non-invasive therapy that addresses problems in the discs, joints, nerves, tendons, muscles, and ligaments.

Physiotherapy and Adjustments

When a patient presents with inflammation, muscle tension, or swelling, physiotherapy uses modalities to decrease problems in the area to be treated. This helps the body prepare for adjustment and aids the healing process.

Adjustments are the star of the show; physiotherapy supplements the benefits of the adjustment. By relaxing the muscles and surrounding structures in the affected area, the adjustment can have a deeper, more lasting effect.

In some cases, pain may come from a lack of strength in the muscles, or poor alignment and improper use of them. Physiotherapy helps patients restore strength, improve balance, and gain greater mobility and range of motion.

Some conditions that may benefit from physiotherapy include

  • Limited movement from injury, accident, surgery, or a health condition
  • Feeling pain during movement
  • Lack of or decreased mobility
  • Building strength to deal with health conditions like arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, stroke, and COPD

The effects of physiotherapy are cumulative; the longer you work at it, the more benefits you will receive. Our goal is to provide you with optimum movement in your body.

In our practice, we may use traction, Hydromassage table, Ultrasound, stretching, core strengthening, hot or cold therapy, Electrical stimulation and manual techniques. The modalities used depend on the severity of your condition and your care plan.

Our staff performs the prescribed therapies under the supervision of Dr. Sertell. Combining chiropractic and physiotherapy helps patients heal faster and stay that way!
