It's more than just the spine
Knowing what would be the most effective method of treatment requires an accurate diagnosis.
Without a proper diagnosis you’re simply treating the symptoms. Whilst this might improve in the short term, the problem almost always reoccurs. Being able to accurately diagnose the cause of your injury and treat/manage accordingly is what separates the top practitioners.
Chiropractic is one of the techniques our physical therapists use as part of an evidence based approach to treatment. Whether your practitioner uses Chiropractic, active release technique, dry needling, a combination of the three or another type of manual therapy is based on what’s deemed the most effective for your problem.
Using a variety of assessments to provide a diagnosis is the first part of the process. The next step is to ensure you understand the problem and more importantly how long the recovery will take and what is involved. This begins to form your management plan which is likely to include treatment and possibly some simple corrective exercises.
