Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation

Here at Elite Advantage Chiropractic (EAC) we focus on three individual types of rehabilitation

  • Rehab after an injury
  • Rehab as prevention
  • Rehab for athletes

Rehabilitation after an injury

After an injury, the primary objective is to eliminate pain, restore proper function, and get you back to your normal activities as quickly as possible. From ankle sprains to post-operative care, EAC uses treatments found to be the most effective and supported by scientific research.  

Rehabilitation as Prevention

Some patients have the short term goal of eliminating pain and the long term goal of preventing injuries and health problems from recurring. For such patients, care does not end when the pain is no longer present. At EAC, we want to give you the tools you need to help yourself minimize the chance of pain or disability in the future. This is accomplished by designing special stretches and exercises specifically for you, to help minimize your risk of injury in the future, and help you function at your best.

For athletes

In athletics, down time means falling behind and at EAC we want to see you achieve optimal athletic performance. This is why we use a multitude of rehabilitation and strengthening strategies to get you where you want, as quickly as possible. Rehabilitation and training can have many benefits including shorter recovery periods and increased performance. From the weekend warrior, to the avid crossfitter, to the elite athlete we have the knowledge to help you reach your goals. 

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic is a health care profession with a focus in dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care is most often used to improve physical function or treat back pain, neck pain, and headaches but can also be used to improve function or treat pain in the joints of the arms and legs, the jaw, and many other parts of the body. Doctors of chiropractic or chiropractic physicians receive an extensive education to practice a drug-free, hands on approach to health care. Chiropractors have the training and skills to diagnose health conditions, provide rehabilitative exercises, nutritional advice, and lifestyle counseling. When chiropractic care is not the best treatment for a given condition, chiropractors may refer patients to the appropriate health care provider. In some cases chiropractors co-manage your care with other members of your health care team.

The chiropractic adjustment

The chiropractic adjustment is a therapeutic procedure performed by providing a controlled impulse into a joint that has become hypomobile (restricted in movement) with the goal of restoring normal joint movement. Chiropractic adjustments are safe and gentle for every member of your family.
