During the first phase of chiropractic treatment, it’s likely that you in some degree of pain due to a spinal condition, sports injury, car accident or workplace injury. Our goal at Rutherford Clinic of Chiropractic is to give patients pain relief early on in treatment. Some patients experience pain relief on the first day of treatment, while others may need several treatments. On your initial visit, Dr. Wesley Stewart will do a comprehensive exam, including orthopedic and neurological, to determine the underlying cause of your pain. If needed, X-rays will be taken. Once an accurate diagnosis is attained, Dr. Wesley Stewart will recommend a personalized treatment plan designed to meet your needs and goals.
Chiropractor Dr. Wesley Stewart implements a holistic and multi-faceted approach to healing. Your treatment and pain management plan may include manual chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression therapy, pain rehabilitation, physical therapy, massage therapy, physiotherapy and wellness care. Each treatment modality works synergistically to reduce pain, accelerate healing and improve function.
Spinal adjustments are performed on the cervical, thoracic and lumbar areas of the spine to gently move the spinal discs into proper alignment. This helps eliminate any of the discs irritating or compressing on surrounding nerves, muscles and tendons. Dr. Wesley Stewart uses spinal adjustments to alleviate pain due to herniated disc, sciatica, whiplash, muscle strains and much more. Spinal decompression therapy takes place on a traction table with a computerized device. During therapy, the spine is gently stretched to increase space between the spinal discs. It’s effective for many conditions, including sciatica and herniated disc. Not only does spinal decompression therapy help alleviate pain, it is totally relaxing. Treatment time averages around 30 minutes.
Physical therapy, physiotherapy and massage therapy are the ideal adjuncts to spinal adjustments. Physical therapy entails hot/cold compresses for pain relief along with specific exercises to build strength and mobility. Our physiotherapy treatment may include ultrasound, cryotherapy, diathermy, mechanical traction and interferential electrical muscle stimulation. Interferential electrical muscle stimulation helps manage pain and inflammation due to soft tissue injury and degenerative changes. It’s effective for back pain, strains, neuralgia, degenerative joint disease and more. With ultrasound, sound waves penetrate deep into tissues to enhance healing. And with the kneading movements of massage therapy, muscles relax, blood circulation and oxygen are increased for faster healing and muscle spasms are reduced. With our wellness plan, patients from Murfreesboro, Walterhill, Blackman, Almaville, Rockvale, Lascassas, Christiana, Kittrell, and Smyrna, TN learn corrective exercises that they can do outside of the office to build strength and avoid future injury.
If you’re in pain due to a car accident, sports injury, job injury, spinal condition or anything else, turn to Rutherford Clinic of Chiropractic for an effective treatment plan that works and is designed just for you. We take the time to discover the cause of your pain, and set a treatment plan in place, so you can enjoy a pain-free life. Call today at (615) 217-0097!
