Physiotherapy is often used in combination with physical therapy and chiropractic care to help ease pain, poor range of motion in joints, and stiffness. At Charleston Chiropractic And Therapy, LLC in Charleston, SC, our chiropractor, Dr. Brian Workman uses various therapeutic techniques to help align your spine and large joints. Physiotherapy is the process of using the hands to manipulate and massage body tissue in order to help you heal naturally. Whether you have headaches, lower back pain, neck pain, or shoulder pain, physiotherapy can reduce your symptoms and improve your overall health.
The Benefits of Physiotherapy
Our chiropractor can use a variety of methods to help realign your spine and support your soft tissue. Physiotherapy helps improve circulation in your tissues, which provides nutrient-dense blood to the affected region. Not only that, but treatment can also break up scar tissue and improve range of motion in your large joints. Physiotherapy is often part of your overall treatment plan and is designed to get your spine aligned and strengthen your body over time. As you work with our chiropractor to address pain or stiffness, manual therapy may be used during your treatment to help you heal.
Chiropractic Adjustments and Physiotherapy
We will use chiropractic adjustments to align your spine, but physiotherapy will help to keep your adjustment in place. Chiropractic adjustments will not be as effective without training your muscles and ligaments how to hold your spine in the correct position. Physiotherapy also eases muscle strain and makes it easier for our chiropractor to adjust your spine. As you heal from improper spinal alignment, manual therapy helps to provide you with more relief in between sessions. Your recovery process will take time, but adding massage, ultrasound, and electrical muscle stimulation to your treatment can help you heal faster.
