Did you know that October is National Chiropractic & Physical Therapy Month? Here at Massapequa Pain Management & Rehabilitation, we offer both chiropractic care and physical therapy so that our patients can get back to living pain-free. These treatment services are incredibly beneficial and deserve their month of national recognition.
What Can Chiropractic Care And Physical Therapy Treat?
To understand why these two forms of care deserve their month of recognition, our team would first like to break down what they can be used to treat. Both chiropractic care and physical therapy act as a solution for many problems, making them extremely beneficial to patients. Below are just a few examples of what these treatment methods can be used for:
- Muscular imbalances.
- Sports injuries.
- Spinal misalignments.
- Postural problems.
- Ligamentous issues.
- Neck, back, and shoulder pain.
The Benefits Of These Methods
As previously stated, both chiropractic care and physical therapy can be used to treat a wide range of issues. However, this is not the only benefit they bring. These are often the first options doctors will recommend when you are dealing with pain. When you visit our team for these forms of care, you stand to reap the below benefits:
- Elimination of pain and swelling.
- Restoration of strength.
- Improvements in flexibility and range of motion.
- Both treatment methods are non-invasive.
- Potentially avoiding the need for surgery.
What To Expect
Although both are incredibly beneficial to one’s well being, what takes place in sessions of physical therapy and chiropractic are varied. Physical therapy incorporates therapeutic stretches and strengthening exercises to promote healing from within an affected area. Chiropractic care involves our team placing controlled amounts of pressure onto various parts of the body to encourage realignment. In either scenario, the patient can expect their pain to be resolved.
