Here at Capitol Hill Chiropractic, a number of our clients first visit after being told they require physical rehabilitation. Physical rehab often requires chiropractic care to provide maximum healing after an injury or accident. Perhaps you have been advised to undergo physical rehabilitation and are wondering what to expect. In that case, we have very useful information for those in South Lake Union and the larger Seattle area.
Physical Rehab Modalities Explained
There are two basic therapies used for physical rehabilitation. The first is chiropractic care provided by Dr. Lawrence Thomas. Chiropractic adjustments ensure your spine and neck are in proper alignment, thereby alleviating any undue stress on your joints and soft tissues.
Physical therapy is often performed in conjunction with chiropractic treatment. Rather than focusing on alignment, physical therapy is designed to strengthen muscles, improve flexibility, and increase mobility. When used together, physical therapy and chiropractic adjustments can improve outcomes while greatly reducing your recovery time.
Customized Treatment Plans
When it comes to physical rehabilitation, no two treatment plans are alike. Whether you require chiropractic treatment, physical therapy, or a combination of the two will depend on several factors, such as:
- The degree and type of injury
- Your overall health and physical condition
- The presence of underlying medical issues like arthritis
Physical rehab may sometimes include other modalities such as massage therapy or acupuncture. Capitol Hill Chiropractic works with your primary care physician to provide you with the most comprehensive care possible. We are proud to serve those in South Lake Union and the larger Seattle area with the highest level of chiropractic care.
When Will I See Improvement?
There is virtually no discomfort whatsoever involved with chiropractic adjustments. Accordingly, most of our clients report less pain and increased mobility following their first appointment. However, it can take quite a few sessions to achieve the ideal alignment. So you should continue noticing relief until you have achieved the optimum results.
Better alignment means that physical therapy will also be more effective. After undergoing chiropractic care, you should be better able to perform your physical rehab exercises and progress faster than you would have otherwise.
