Both Chiropractic Physicians & primary care doctors have the same goal; relieving your pain & getting you back to your normal activities. The main difference is the approach. Traditionally, family doctors will prescribe drugs as their primary approach. The idea is that by generically reducing inflammation, pain & muscle tension, the body will begin to move normally & heal. And to be fair, this method has benefit. However, the limitation is that the problem is usually not corrected. The body was hopefully restored to the point just prior to the injury. Chiropractic treatment tends to be more comprehensive & specific.
At Swank Chiropractic Sports Medicine, patients are given a thorough musculoskeletal evaluation. The explicit focus is on the cause of the pain & why the frame failed. In addition to physical examination, we may use radiography. It is common to see conditions that have existed for years without notice. Simply, this is because joints that don’t work properly tend to show excess wear & tear. We work for a complete understanding of all aspects of our patients’ current malady.
Armed with this information, treatment is laser focused on the correction & improvement of the cause of the problem. We utilize state of the art treatment to quickly relieve pain, including:
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Interferential muscle stimulation
- Therapeutic Ultrasound
- Intersegmental traction
- Spinal Decompression
The result? Our patients are typically better than they were prior to the injury. They tend to have fewer problems in the future. Both, without the risks & side effects of taking prescription drugs.
