Injury Recovery Methods at Back to Health Chiropractic


People who live an active lifestyle are more likely to suffer injuries, and those injuries can be frustrating to go through. If you have sustained an injury, be it from work, sports, or accident, you will want to utilize recovery methods that can get you back to one hundred percent as soon as possible. With Back to Health Chiropractic, your wellbeing and comfort are the top priority, and we will put you on a path to recovery that works best with your unique situation. The professionals on our staff know how to diagnose and properly treat many different injuries, and we can help you heal and recover from injuries you never thought possible. There are several different methods to use when recovering from injury.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is primarily focused on relieving you of your pain and suffering and getting you back to performing your daily activities in comfort. As you recover, physical therapy treatments evolve to build on the functions you have and slowly introduce more resistance to the injured areas. Under the direct supervision of a trained physical therapist, it is usually possible to make a full recovery. Physical therapy can even shorten your recovery time, as exercising your injured joints, ligaments, or tendons will prevent them from becoming stiff and help them gain strength faster.

Massage Therapy

Massages can contribute a lot to the recovery process. Not only will a massage enhance relaxation and muscle function, but it can also help with the mental aspect of recovery. Massages are known to help with sleeping and strengthening your immune system, which can go a long way in helping you fully recover. If your joints are sore after a physical therapy session or are aching from an old injury, a massage can restore functionality and help you go about your daily activities in far less pain. Our specialists at Back to Health Chiropractic are trained in all aspects of massage, meaning you will leave feeling refreshed and in less pain than when you came in.

Exercise

A personalized exercise program is essential to recovering from sports-related injuries. Rather than let your joints and ligaments get stiff, which will prolong your recovery time, it is best to slowly ease into exercising. This will shorten your recovery time and work to strengthen your body. Remaining as active as possible is always better for your recovery time, and our specialists at Back to Health Chiropractic can help you form an exercise program that will work best for you.
