What can a physical therapist do?
An experienced physical therapist will provide you with exceptional insight into the purpose and mobility of your body, and how best to support its function. Your physical therapist can offer therapeutic techniques that will help to reduce inflammation and loosen scar tissue in damaged joints. They often use massage, ultrasound, and ice and heat therapy to promote healing. Physical therapy programs are designed specifically for each patient who requires PT services, so your therapist at Harborside Sport & Spine will take the time to get to know you, understand your body, and address your concerns by developing a personalized therapeutic plan. We provide care for patients who have back issues as the result of overuse, joint problems, and mobility issues that negatively impact their quality of life.
What does chiropractic care entail?
When you seek chiropractic adjustment, you will speak with a provider about the way your body functions on a typical day, so they can provide you with a therapeutic treatment plan that will address your mobility problems, and provide you with a better quality of life. A chiropractor will used targeted, controlled force to carefully move spinal joints in order to address alignment and mobility issues that can cause chronic pain. Improved spinal function can have a broad impact throughout the body because your spine is responsible for supporting every part of your body in its movement. When your spine and neck are properly aligned, it can reduce headaches and improve pain conditions related to sciatica, herniated discs, and other issues.
Does physical therapy or chiropractic adjustment hurt?
In general, these therapeutic techniques should not cause pain. However, it is possible that you may experience a slight amount of discomfort during your sessions as your provider moves your body. Chiropractic adjustment uses extremely gentle pressure, but it is possible that significantly tight or damaged parts of your body may feel uncomfortable during your treatment, and it is not uncommon for patients to feel some soreness in the treated area for a day or two following their appointment. Similarly, physical therapy techniques do sometimes focus on breaking up scar tissue and manually manipulating sore or damaged muscle, which can result in slight pain. However, it is important to remember that any discomfort you feel is the result of your chiropractor or physical therapist helping your body by supporting its natural movement. When we are hurt, often our bodies make accommodations that can result in improper alignment or function. By restoring our bodies to a more natural state, we can improve the way we feel and support our long-term health.
