Chiropractic

 



At RA Physical Therapy, a chiropractic approach may be utilized to treat disorders of the musculoskeletal system. These services are provided by a practitioner who has taught at a chiropractic college, applying evidence-based approaches in the treatment of various conditions such as low back pain, neck pain and headaches.


The practitioner uses manipulation very judiciously, first, by determining if the joint pain is due to restricted movement or increased movement. If the pain is due to decreased joint motion, the joint is manipulated to restore normal function followed by exercises to prevent joint impairment and fix muscle imbalance. If the practitioner determines the pain is due to increased joint movement (hypermobility), manipulation is not deemed appropriate, and treatment focuses on joint stabilization exercises.


Our chiropractor will work closely with your doctor and healthcare team to determine the best treatment approach for you.
