What is Chiropractic?
The purpose of chiropractic medicine is to improve mobility and restore function. Chiropractic medicine focuses on the communication between the musculoskeletal system and the central nervous system. How the body functions and moves is a direct correlation to the central nervous system. Chiropractic care helps facilitate this relationship allowing the central nervous system to communicate optimally in order to rebuild, protect and sustain your body’s health.
Stages of Care
At Range of Motion Chiropractic (ROMC) there are 3 stages of care.
- Management of Symptoms
- Corrective Exercises
- Maintenance/Wellness Care
Management of Symptoms
In this stage the primary goal is to reduce the patient’s pain and discomfort. We believe in treating the body system as a whole to target the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms. The initial consultation includes a detailed history, physical exam, education, and treatment. Each session is designed specifically for the individual, which includes soft tissue therapy, treatment modalities to address muscles spasms or inflammation, chiropractic adjustments, and therapeutic exercise.
This stage focuses on corrective exercises/rehabilitation. A specific home exercise program (HEP) will be created for the patient. To promote continued healing and to minimize reoccurrence of the injury, it is imperative that the patient follow the care instructions of the HEP provided. Although the patient may no longer feel pain during this stage, there is still tissue damage that is present and needs to be addressed accordingly.
Once the tissue damage has been healed and the biomechanics/functional movement has been restored, the patient will enter this stage of care. On a daily basis the body will endure physical, chemical and emotional stress that will overtime affect the body’s ability to function optimally. Maintenance/wellness care is recommended to all patients in order to address any minor complaints that may become a hindrance to their daily routine or develop into full-blown injuries.
