Physiotherapy in Mesa and the East Valley
Here at Infinite Healing Center, 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 Physiotherapy protocols. Physiotherapy is an enormously helpful complement to chiropractic care and usually helps our patients get better and enjoy their regular activities faster.
How Physiotherapy and Chiropractic Care Accelerate Healing Together
Physiotherapy is a discipline that involves drug-free methods such as stretching, exercises, massage and other physiotherapy techniques designed to relax, retrain and recondition the muscles that have been injured in some way. Physiotherapy 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.
Physiotherapy 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, etc. 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. Poorly conditioned muscles can pull the spine right back out of place. With Physiotherapy, however, we address the total health of the spine and body.
Our exercise therapists work directly with our chiropractors and patients to design rehabilitation programs that address their individual needs. Your exercise therapist will teach you the correct form for your individual exercises and stretches and do them with you in the office first so that you feel comfortable and confident doing them regularly 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.
A word about form: correct exercise form is important for two main reasons. When you are performing your exercises correctly, as directed by the chiropractor, you should get the most therapeutic benefit from the work. Muscles get stronger and more flexible. Also, incorrect form can potentially cause further injury and throw your recovery out of balance. Pay close attention to form at all times.
