Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
Physical Therapy is a regular part of treatment plans at Motionlife Chiropractic & Acupuncture. Physical Therapy enhances recovery and effectively maintain the results of your treatments. Early phases of care often include treatment with Therapeutic Electrical Stimulation and/or Therapeutic Ultrasound to relieve muscle pain, reduce muscle tension, and increase healing circulation to the area. Muscle stretches are frequently used to balance muscle tone, which reduces painful areas of tension and improves function.
Acupuncture works by stimulating the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) to release chemicals called neurotransmitters and hormones. These chemicals dull pain, boost the immune system and regulate various body functions.
