Physical Therapy in Palm Beach Gardens

Therapies are a powerful adjunct to Chiropractic Care. Chiropractic adjustments restore alignment and symmetry to the spine and help to remove nervous system interference. Modalities/therapies address the soft tissues—muscles, ligaments, tendons & discs—they help remove lactic acid, scar tissue formation, inflammation, muscle spasm/tension and so forth. We feel this comprehensive approach may help facilitate more complete healing in your body. If scar tissue and inflammation are allowed to persist, your Chiropractic adjustments may not hold for a very long time. We feel that treating both the vertebral bones and the muscular system simultaneously gives our patients a strong treatment each visit. At Preferred Chiropractic Center, we employ a number of modalities in combination with gentle, low-force Chiropractic adjustments to help you meet all your goals.

Who Needs Soft Tissue Modalities?

If you have experienced any of the following, you can benefit from Modalities:

  • Car accidents Patients: People who have been in Auto Accidents often have significant soft-tissue damage, including micro tears of the muscles, tendons & ligaments, inflammation at the joints and capsules & around the discs, lactic acid build up and scar tissue formation. Did you know that scar tissue formation can develop in your body within 8 hours of a strong accident. Chiropractic Care can help restore spinal mis-alignments and nervous system function. Therapies are generally used to decrease inflammation initially; a common source of most new pain. Later during care, we will spend more time getting rid of lactic acid buildup and scar tissue formation.
  • Post Surgical Patients: Often therapies can help you recover after surgery, by helping to reduce scar tissue formation, inflammation, lactic acid and tense muscles.
  • Scoliosis Patients: Therapies can also be beneficial for patients with Scoliosis, to help temporarily soften extremely tense muscles in order to hold the spine in better alignment for a period of time.
  • Musculoskeletal conditions: Any musculoskeletal condition that causes pain or dysfunction can often be helped by certain therapies designed to address the particular underlying causes of that pain and/or dysfunction.
  • Patients in Pain: Inflammation is usually the culprit here. We have many machines that can alleviate inflammation. My favorite however is the Cold Laser. It locates the inflammation for you; can’t get any easier than that!!!

Listening to Your Body

When your body is injured, inflammation occurs and the surrounding muscles shorten and tighten to protect the injured area. If those muscles remain in this tightened, shortened state, pain and misalignment of the spinal bones may ultimately result—so it’s important to know how to address this situation as soon as possible. With his decades of experience and expertise, Dr. Steve is skilled at assessing your body’s needs and providing the proper care. He will use appropriate therapies to reduce pain, muscular tension, scar tissue, inflammation, lactic acid build up and muscular tension/spasm. Once the inflammation and muscular tightness are reduced, Chiropractic adjustments are needed to restore proper alignment to the spine.

Your Goals Are Our Goals

Some patients seek our care simply to get out of pain, while others are looking to restore proper function. Still others have interest in optimizing their overall health. Whatever your Chiropractic goals are, we will do our best to help you achieve them. We never try to “up sell you” on services you do not want or need. Our goal is to get you out of pain as fast as possible and send you on your way. We have no interest in ongoing care if that care ceases to maximally benefit the patient.
