Rehabilitation Q & A

How Can Chiropractic Care Help With Rehabilitation?

In order to function properly, the structures of the body must maintain the correct alignment. Because the spine plays a central role in the human body, misalignment can have many different negative effects. When an individual is injured, whether through a traumatic injury, sports injury or simply by years of improper posture or body positioning, the result is a change in the body’s daily function. Chiropractic care focuses on restoring proper alignment of the spine and makes use of many different technologies and techniques to correct issues that arise from injury or chronic misuse. Education plays a vital role in that process, and part of chiropractic care involves teaching patients how to promote their own wellness through modified behaviors and self-care techniques.

What is the Fascial Distortion Model, and What are the Benefits?

The fascial distortion model, or FDM, is a treatment model that looks at musculoskeletal injuries or damage to the soft tissues through a lens of six different types of changes that the body's connective tissues can undergo. Treatment involves physically reversing damage to the body's connective tissues. Once those distortions have been corrected, the patient experiences immediate relief of pain symptoms. FDM can help patients recover from sprains, whiplash, headaches, muscle strain, tendonitis and a wide range of other conditions.

What Other Techniques or Approaches are Used in Rehabilitation?

No two individuals will share the exact same set of needs when it comes to rehabilitation. That is why it is so important to take an individualized approach to chiropractic care. When a person comes in seeking rehabilitation, the first step is gathering the information needed to create a customized plan of action. Once that step is complete, the practitioner will select from a wide range of therapeutic options. These include spinal adjustments, post-isometric isolation, proprioceptive work and enhanced strength and endurance training.
