Alternative Treatment Option
When you go to a doctor and explain your painful condition, oftentimes they will recommend medication to numb the pain. However, when you mask your pain with painkillers rather than directly treating the cause, the source of your pain is never addressed, and the condition can worsen over time. If your condition continues to progress over time it could get so severe that surgery becomes your last resort.
Physiotherapy is an effective, alternative treatment option to medication and surgery, as it gets to the root of your issue without the need for invasive procedures or a lifetime of potentially addictive painkillers.
How Does It Work?
Physiotherapy utilizes a manual, hands-on approach to pain relief treatment. Our chiropractors practice physiotherapy to improve the patient’s injury and pain through any number of specialized treatment methods, including:
- Soft tissue release
- Mobilization of the joints
- Fascial release
- And more
These hands-on, specialized physiotherapy treatments work to improve mobility, balance, strengthen muscles, and sharpen coordination.
