Treatment: Our Approach To Chiropractic
We might recommend numerous forms of treatment to go along with Austin chiropractic adjustments, such as corrective exercises, nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice.
Dr. McHone and our chiropractic team utilizes non-invasive chiropractic techniques. Our team provides comprehensive and custom care to each of our patients. If you are struggling to manage chronic pain or heal an injury, it's natural to get frustrated with traditional medical care. Prescription medication only provides temporary relief, and invasive surgeries often create additional problems and risks. Our chiropractor is personally committed to diagnosing the problem, implementing corrective treatment and restoring functionality and mobility.
What Should I, As A Patient, Expect with A Rehab Program?
Rehabilitation chiropractors focus on active and goal-oriented care. Dr. McHone will use your self-determined goals through an individualized treatment plan. You will be taught proper movement patterns, postures and ergonomics, and injury prevention strategies to accelerate your healing process. Dr. McHone will create an individualized treatment plan to help you reach your lifestyle goals. Treatment often includes:
- Balance Exercises
- Stretching and stability exercises
- Exercises to increase endurance and strength
- Pain reduction and elimination
Our rehab chiropractic team can save you time and money by eliminating the need for multiple providers for the same service. This is especially important in the environment of ever-increasing deductibles and co-payments.
Each phase of rehab can be enhanced through proper nutritional recommendations:
- Phase I Rehab: Acute Inflammatory Phase, which occurs 24-72 hours post injury. During Phase I, the patient exhibits symptoms including pain, redness, inflammation and swelling. The body releases biochemicals including bradykinins histamines and prostaglandins which provide for the initial inflammatory reaction following an injury. During this phase our rehab doctor will recommend nutrients that will reduce some of the side effects of inflammation. These recommendations could include avoiding sugars, high carbs, glutens and grains. In addition, our chiropractor near you may prescribe anti-inflammatory nutrients that include Vitamin C, SPM Active, Vitamin D in combination with proteolytic enzymes including bromelain, pancreatin and papain.
- Phase II Rehab: Repair or Regenerative Phase of care and occurs 24 hours to 6 weeks post injury. Nutrients during this phase support the production and deposition of collagen. Nutritional recommendations during this phase includes: Vitamin C, Multivitamin, SPM Active, Vitamin D, Magnesium
- Phase III rehab is known as the Remodeling Phase and occurs from 3 weeks to 12 months post injury. Recommendations during this phase include: Vitamin C, Green leafy vegetables, Glucosamine sulfate, Chondroitin Sulfate, SPM Active
Peripheral Neuropathy is a disorder involving the nerves in either the upper or lower extremities. Common upper extremity peripheral neuropathies include carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel syndrome, Guyons canal syndrome, pisiform-hamate syndrome, radial tunnel syndrome, anterior interosseous syndrome, Pronator syndrome, hand-cuff neuropathy and thoracic outlet syndrome.
Once a proper diagnosis is made, our Rehab chiropractor will use specific techniques including mobilization, manipulation, and activator techniques combined with Isometrics and isotonic/isokinetic muscle retraining exercises.
Dr. McHone frequently recommends SPM Active, a multi-vitamin and EZ Flex. Adjunctive Procedures may include:
- Laser therapy
- Percussive Therapy
- Myofascial release
How Chiropractic Helps Relieve Pain
A misalignment of the musculoskeletal system is an underlying cause for many types of body pain. An auto accident injury like whiplash, a pinched nerve or natural wear and tear on the body can lead to misalignments in the spine.
Chiropractic care focuses on restoring alignment to the musculoskeletal system for natural relief through advanced techniques. Whether you suffer from foot plantar fasciitis or shoulder with a herniated disc, we can help you find true relief with less treatment.
Safe, Non-Surgical Chiropractic Care for Pain Relief
At Austin Chiropractic and Rehab, our chiropractic care is a non-surgical approach to pain relief that does not have these risks. Whether you have lower back pain or an injury to another joint, you might deal with ongoing pain that does not improve with medication or another form of conventional treatment. Although some doctors recommend surgery for pain that does not ease up, this comes with potentially serious risks and no guarantee that the procedure will be successful.
Instead, at Austin Chiropractic and Rehab, our chiropractor near you can enjoy relief from your symptoms while also lowering your risk of having persistent pain or pain that comes back. These treatments do not put you at risk of developing other health problems or serious complications.
