Hot Pack/Cold Pack
Hot packs and cold packs are a popular physical therapy option known as thermotherapy. Cold packs are more beneficial for particular injuries and illnesses, while hot packs are more suitable for others. Your chiropractor in Dallas will be able to advise you on which form of thermotherapy will be more beneficial for your situation.
Ultrasound therapy is another physical therapy our Dallas chiropractors provide. Using sound waves to deliver heat to the tissue to reduce stiffness, swelling, and pain, it’s also beneficial for many other reasons. Those who use ultrasound therapy also report benefits such as increased circulation, and being able to move without pain.
Typically, ultrasound therapy is followed up with stretches, massage, heat treatment, and chiropractic manipulation. If you believe ultrasound therapy could be the very thing you need, get in touch with our one of chiropractors in Dallas.
When used in conjunction with chiropractic manipulation, those suffering from pain, inflammation, and discomfort can benefit from intersegmental traction. Intersegmental traction, while it sounds complicated, is a straightforward yet effective form of physical therapy that can stretch your joints and increase your overall mobility.
Your chiropractor in Dallas will explain the entire process before proceeding. Intersegmental traction aims to establish a “normal range” of motion to your spine. Athletes, sportspeople, and runners are the most common participants in this treatment.
This form of treatment is known to increase your mobility, stretch your muscles and ligaments, and reduce the instance of spinal subluxation. What’s more, it has profound benefits on your discs, muscles, and ligaments due to increased blood flow. The effect of this is better balance, increased strength and, of course, better mobility.
Get in touch with our chiropractors in Dallas if you believe this form of physical therapy may be helpful for you.
Myofascial Release Therapy
If you are suffering from an auto injury, your Dallas chiropractor may recommend myofascial therapy. Myofascial therapy involves relieving your soft tissue of pain and relieving chronic myofascial or lower back pain. Typically, myofascial pain is caused by a car accident, a fall, misalignment of your posture, a compressed nerve, an inflammatory condition, or even a herniated disc.
Therapeutic Exercises and Rehabilitation
After a work injury, auto injury, or personal injury, your chiropractor may recommend therapeutic exercises and rehabilitation. If you’re unsure what those include, we’ve added some helpful information below. However, our chiropractors in Dallas are always dedicated to providing a custom experience. Therefore, the exercises and rehabilitation activities you receive are tailored to your exact illness or injury, rather than someone else’s.
