Chattanooga, TN Progressive Rehabilitation
The Doctors and our team at True Wellness Chiropractic have completed extensive postgraduate training in the field of manual medicine and rehabilitation. Numerous studies have demonstrated that patients who fully understand their condition and engage in an active exercise program get well faster and stay well longer.
Whether you suffer from an acute injury or chronic pain, we will find or create a rehabilitation program to meet your individual needs. A teamwork approach is utilized, with you as an equal participant in your health care. You will become very educated about your specific neuro-muscular condition and empowered to take an active role in regaining your health, performance, and wellness. Upon completion of your program, you will be stronger and better able to prevent re-injury.
Not every person is the same, and neither is their condition. We teach our patient’s special “blueprint” exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in office for any assistance or in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%.
We also provide several physio therapy modalities at our facility, such as:
Electrical Muscle Stimulation – uses electric impulses to elicit muscle contraction. These impulses mimic normal activity via the central nervous system, and is often a complementary technique for sports training.
Ultrasound – uses heated sound waves and applies the energy to soft tissues and joints. The fast-moving waves essentially massage soft tissues effortlessly and, in most cases, painlessly. Alleviates muscle spasms, reduces inflammation and swelling, improves range of motion, helps increase blood flow, and lowers pain and stiffness
Heat/Ice Therapy – heat and ice is one of the oldest and most common types of passive, non-invasive therapies. A wide variety of results can be achieved, including increased blood supply, muscle relaxation, and pain relief.
Cervical Mechanical Traction– the goal of traction is to reduce pain and to help a person be more functional. Every patient is fully evaluated to determine the best treatment for his or her circumstances.
Vibration Therapy – with regular use, vibration therapy can reduce back and joint pain by releasing lubrication to the joints. Clinical studies have shown that WBV can vastly improve muscle strength, performance and flexibility. There is also documentation that it can enhance blood and lymph circulation, which is critical to the regeneration of damaged tissues. Another use for WBV is to assist the circulatory system’s ability to deliver vital nutrients and hormones throughout the body.
- Reduces swelling, leading to decreased pain, less stiffness, and a faster return to normal joint and muscle function.
- Accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.
- Stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue.
- Reduces formation of scar tissue, leading to more complete healing, with less chance of weakness and re-injury later.
