Here at Mind Body Spine Chiropractic, we specialize in assisting our patients through physical rehabilitation.
Physical rehabilitation uses mechanical force and movement to improve mobility, function, and quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention.
There are many reasons patients come to us for physical rehabilitation. One of the main reasons is because they have been hurt in an automobile accident and need additional attention in order to get their bodies back to feeling normal. Other people hurt their bodies in sports or work and need assistance to feel better again.
Our entire staff is dedicated to helping you feel better. Our compassionate and educated chiropractors will work with you every step of the way. The results of an injury can vary from person to person, so it is important to speak with our wonderful staff to see how we can help you. Our number one goal is to help you feel better.
The human body is an amazing machine, but like all machines, it occasionally requires maintenance and support to keep it running smoothly. As a corrective exercise specialist, we help to keep your body machine running well. We provide the maintenance to address the glitches and bugs that limit the movement and performance.
Performance is different for everyone. For some it might mean tending to a goal or tending to a garden, chasing a white ball around the golf course, or chasing kids in the backyard. For some it’s running 26.2 miles and for others, getting around the neighborhood.
Regardless of how you define performance, our goal is the same for all patients: reduce muscular dysfunction so that you can move better, feel better, and perform better. Correcting dysfunctional movement requires some detective work to see what is going on. We have a revolutionary Functional Movement Assessment; our team can analyze the health of your movement patterns so that you can begin to develop corrective approaches to get your body to a healthier, pain-free state!
We do this by looking at three key components of movement: the joints, muscles, and the nervous system (motor control) which connect everything together. If we can identify and remove the dysfunction in these three areas, the body’s function and performance return.
Functional Movement is a healthy pattern of motions that every single human being SHOULD be able to perform. The body bends, twists, reaches, and picks things up all day long without much thought, until you cannot, or could not the same way as before. What if I told you that you were probably moving dysfunctionally prior to the pain that limits you? Yes, dysfunction leaves clues.
Failure to move well can come from a breakdown of any of these systems. We have often found that all three are affected and need correction.
A movement dysfunction is also called a compensation. This is the body’s response to muscle imbalance, insufficient strength, decreased mobility, instability, and altered balance. A breakdown in any or all of these can keep you from performing. Essentially what happens is one borrows from one muscle group to pay another. This taxes the body and if left uncorrected over time, this can lead to injury and we do not want that!
Our goal is to ensure your body movements are functional and strong enough to maintain a health that will last a lifetime.
