Here at The Edge Chiropractic, we do not chase pain. It is important to understand that often times where the pain presents is not the area that needs to be treated. The pain may be due to that area compensating and being over-worked from another area not pulling its weight. Our rehabilitation program includes strength, flexibility and agility training as well as training focused on coordination of body parts and motion to prepare the individual to return to full participation.

This comprehensive and consistent approach works to retrain muscles, restore joint function, and prevent recurring injuries and doctor visits. Additionally, we will equip our patients with innovative techniques for maintaining proper posture, improving lifting mechanics or workouts, and determining “Do’s and Don’ts” related to certain jobs or daily activities. The effectiveness of this treatment protocol depends on the patient’s commitment to their therapeutic exercises and following the doctor’s recommendations. Improving the patient’s function, as opposed to simply managing the symptoms, can have a significant impact on injury reduction. Chiropractic adjustments make people feel better, but appropriate rehabilitation is essential for long-term positive outcomes.

Pain is disruptive, but it doesn’t have to be permanent. Dr. Jason Dunlap and the team at The Edge Chiropractic in Ormond Beach, FL, offer physiotherapy and other techniques to ensure you achieve freedom from your suffering.

Combining Physiotherapy and Chiropractic Care

Have you ever noticed that you have muscle tension in your back, but you haven’t done anything recently to overwork it? Or maybe you notice your shoulder or arm hurting, but you can’t recall anything you might have done to it.

These are not uncommon scenarios. Often, we feel pain in areas where there is no injury because of an injury elsewhere.

For example, tension in the lower back or even shoulder and arm pain might be due to a spinal misalignment. The muscles are working to overcompensate for the misalignment. The same thing can occur when one muscle group isn’t strong enough to pull its weight.

The trouble is that even if the misalignment or other injury is corrected, the soft tissues that are tense and tight are still present. If not addressed, this can put stress on the area that was injured and cause it to happen again. In short, both the injury and the area that overcompensated for that injury need to be addressed.

The Role of Physiotherapy in Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors like Dr. Dunlap at The Edge Chiropractic in Ormond Beach, FL, understand the interplay and inter-reliance of the hard and soft tissues. They know that true and lasting relief can only come when all factors are addressed.

Chiropractic adjustments are provided to restore proper alignment throughout the skeletal system. This relieves any undue strain on the soft tissues.

Physiotherapy consists of a customized combination of techniques that address the soft tissues. These techniques are used to relieve tension, increase strength and flexibility, improve range of motion, and more.

While the exact techniques used can differ, one effective one is through the use of the PiezoWave 2. It sends acoustic waves to the target areas to massage the deep tissues, improve circulation, relieve tightness, address trigger points, and stimulate healing

Electrical stimulation therapy can be useful in relieving muscle spasms, increasing circulation, and enhancing soft tissue healing. Targeted exercises are also beneficial for stretching and strengthening troubled areas.
