PT & Rehab

Physical therapy and rehabilitation are additional treatments utilized at Park West Chiropractic and Wellness Center to help maximize your complete recovery.

Physical Therapy

Besides spinal or extremity manipulation treatments, different types of therapies are utilized. These treatments are used to help reduce edema and swelling, improve circulation, decrease pain, decrease inflammation, produce endorphins and help restore and maintain proper biomechanics. Independent studies, as well as clinical experience, show that these therapies help produce better results in less time. The types of therapies offered are:
  • Cold/Hot Packs
  • Electrical Muscle Stimulation – Interferential, Russian Stimulation and Nerve Block
  • Intersegmental Traction
  • Therapeutic Massage
  • Myofascial Release
  • Joint Mobilization
  • Class IV Laser Therapy using the K-LASER

Rehabilitation

Proper rehabilitation is a necessary component for complete recovery from many types of injuries. The goal of rehabilitation is to restore proper function and eliminate activity intolerances before the onset of disabling, chronic pain syndromes. Weak muscles, if left unchecked, can add additional stress on the joints and make the situation worse.

Therefore, each patient is carefully evaluated for spinal, nerve and ligament problems, as well as underlying muscle weakness. If muscle problems are found, we are well equipped to aid in the correction of those problems.

Park West Chiropractic offers a comprehensive rehabilitation program including passive and active stretching protocols, kinetic, isometric and isotonic exercises, as well as proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) training. Our modern program is designed to help accelerate the healing process and provide stability and strength within the injured area. Without proper rehabilitation of an injury, complete functional restoration cannot be achieved.
