Spinal Rehabilitation Experts in Temple,TX
At Advanced Chiropractic we’ve found that many people who suffer from chronic back pain find themselves rearranging their daily lives just to avoid flare-ups. With little relief in sight, sometimes avoidance might seem like the best solution. If you find yourself avoiding certain positions, giving up the things you love to do, and rearranging your life around your chronic pain, you may benefit from spinal rehabilitation.
We believe one of the greatest assets people have is their health, and our goal here at Advanced Chiropractic is to help you get back to how you were before the pain started. Between corrective treatments and a proactive approach to health education and spinal rehabilitation, we not only help you with your current symptoms but help teach you exercises and techniques that promote proper spinal alignment that emphasize the importance of continued care, even in the absence of pain and stiffness. Even better, our treatments are non-surgical.
What Causes The Pain
This is the key that will shape what techniques will be utilized in your treatment. The human body is an incredibly complex series of mechanisms all working together, and even the slightest misalignment can result in the appearance of symptoms like pain, spasms, headaches, and even numbness or shooting pains in other parts of the body. Through chiropractic treatment, we can realign what’s ‘slipped’ out of place and help you train your body to keep things in alignment through stretches, exercises, and postural techniques.
To make absolutely certain chiropractic treatment is right for you, we cover all the bases and perform a full on-site examination after going over your history and discussing your treatment goals. This includes a physical, neurological, and chiropractic assessment, as well as X-rays taken on-site if necessary. Once we have an idea of what the source of your pain is, and that it’s something chiropractic techniques can help with, we’ll get you set up with a treatment plan and on the road to recovery.
There are a lot of different kinds of techniques involved in spinal rehabilitation. The rehabilitation process overall focuses on achieving your individual goals and allowing you to return to a productive and satisfactory life. Depending on your diagnosis, we will custom-build a treatment regimen for you based on your needs. For example, if you have minor spondylolisthesis (when one of your vertebrae slip out of place and begin putting pressure on the next vertebral segment down the chain), your treatment plan would likely be comprised of various forms of traction, spinal adjustments, as well as low impact exercises to help strengthen the muscles that hold your vertebrae in place to keep it secure. This can also be combined with modalities such as heat and cold application and TENS for pain management.
Healing is About the Journey
As much as we would all love some miracle pill that cures all that ails us, unfortunately, the recovery process takes time. That’s why we focus more on the journey towards recovery than the destination. While we certainly want you better and back to enjoying your life as quickly as possible, we make sure you’re on the most effective and beneficial highway to a full recovery.
We’ve all had those doctors in the past who are mentally checked out, just looking at us as though we’re a list of symptoms and they’re just checking all the boxes, writing a script, and sending us on our way. You can rest assured that our doctors here at Advanced Chiropractic will treat you as more than just a compilation of symptoms. That’s because our doctors understand and can relate to the way you feel because most of them have been in the same place you are right now. Many of our doctors were drawn to the call of medicine because of their need for treatment when they were younger. Dr. Schels suffered from excruciating back pain after a bad landing one night blowing off some steam on the school track before getting a spinal adjustment. Dr. Raesz suffered elbow tendonitis during his college baseball career and utilized chiropractic treatment for a variety of injuries over the years. Dr. Haby suffered from severe Achilles tendon pain while on the college track team, his chiropractor not only helped relieve his pain but also rekindled hope that he could once again run pain-free. We’ve been where you are, we know not only the physical pain that comes when something is wrong but also the emotional baggage and worry that comes with it, and it’s having dealt with it themselves that drives our doctors to give you the best treatment they can.
If you’re suffering from severe back pain, don’t wait any longer. Make an appointment for a consultation and see if spinal rehabilitation is right for you. Our office offers a safe and comfortable environment, with doctors who want nothing more than to see you feeling back to your old self, back before the pain started. Nothing is worse than suffering from chronic pain that just won’t go away, so why wait another minute.
