I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant lower back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. So I decided to go to a chiropractor before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pains are gone and I am living my life to the fullest and pain free.

The goal of Physical Therapy treatment at Health Focus, P.C. is to use the most modern conservphysicaltherapy.jpgative treatment modalities to improve your condition and bring your range of motion to a functional status.  We use moist heat, cryotherapy, electro-muscle stimulation, ultrasound, traction, trigger point therapy, and therapeutic injections.

Our staff maintains the highest quality of care through physical therapy and careful examination procedures.  Patients are helped with treatment plans and medication to reduce pain, increase range of motion, and improve activities of daily living. Whether you have common knee and ankle injuries from such sports as running or tennis, or you suffer from non-traditional injuries from extreme sports like wake boarding and mountain biking, we are fully equipped to help you heal quickly and properly.

There are many different forms of physical therapy. Acutely, the therapist may focus on decreasing pain with passive physical therapy (modalities). These are considered passive therapies because they are done to the patient. Examples of passive modalities include:

  • Cryotherapy
  • Electric Stimulation
  • Flexion Distraction
  • Intersegmental Traction
  • Micro-current
  • Superficial Heat
  • Ultrasound

In addition to passive therapies, active physical therapy (exercise) is also necessary to rehabilitate the spine. Generally, a patient's exercise program should encompass a combination of the following:

  • Stretching
  • Strengthening/pain relief exercises
  • Physioballs Therabands
  • Free Weights
  • Low-impact aerobic conditioning

Even patients with a very busy schedule should be able to maintain a moderate exercise regimen that encompasses stretching, strengthening, and aerobic conditioning.
