Pain Relief and Wellness through Manual Therapy
When many patients think of manual therapy, they most likely picture a day spa with soothing music. What many don't realize is they can reap all of the pain relief and wellness benefits of this practice right here in our clinic!
Natural Care Chiropractic offers Lindenhurst, Wadsworth, Gurnee, and Antioch patients the opportunity for healing through manual therapy. All of our treatments are tailored to the needs of the individual patient, ranging from sports medicine and manual therapy to pregnancy discomfort relief.
Common Manual Therapy Techniques, Practices, and Benefits
It is important to realize that not all manual techniques and therapists are the same. By receiving a treatment at a chiropractic office, a patient knows they are in the hands of professionals trained in muscle, spine, and back pain management.
There are several different facets to this therapeutic technique. However, the most common technique used at Natural Care Chiropractic is Myofascial Release. This generally involves gentle but sustained pressure on the body without using oils, machines, or other techniques. Anyone who has ever had a muscle knot in their back, shoulders, or neck is probably pretty familiar with this practice. Myofascial Release is one of the most effective ways to eliminate swelling and muscle pain when combined with chiropractic spinal adjustment and other similar treatments. Most patients see a difference after their first treatment.
We also offer the benefit of having several pregnancy trained therapists available at our clinic. The intense strain placed on a woman's body during all phases of pregnancy (but especially in the third trimester) can cause intense discomfort and pain. Due to the sensitive nature of the position of the unborn child and pressure points within the body, not all manual therapists are qualified to handle this type of patient. Our trained and certified staff can provide relief from pain and increase movement during some of the most uncomfortable times during your pregnancy. This style has been proven to increase the mobility of many woman and even help ease recuperation after birth.
At Natural Care Chiropractic, we also offer patients advice in several different stretching protocols and exercise techniques, designed to increase the function of the musculoskeletal system, eliminate pain, and promote range of movement.
