Our chiropractor Dr. Stewart has found that a multi-faceted approach is the most successful way to treat lower back pain, headaches, neck pain, car accident injury, work injury and sports injury pain. While he always starts off with thorough chiropractic care to realign the spine when it has been pulled out of its proper position, he also recommends that patients follow through with a course of our Murfreesboro physical therapy.
Dr. Stewart has several reasons for prescribing patients in Murfreesboro, Walterhill, Blackman, Almaville, Rockvale, Lascassas, Christiana, Kittrell, and Smyrna, TN physical therapy as part of their healing process. First of all, he treats the body as a complete, interconnected system that has to work in harmony in order to function at its top level. When somebody is injured or has been laboring under poor posture habits for a long time, there are more problems than just the isolated symptoms. The spine is usually out of alignment, which needs to be corrected. But the soft tissues that support your skeleton—the muscles, tendons, ligaments, etc.—those have also suffered damage or have been weakened and need to be retrained if they are to help you maintain correct posture and injury recovery in the future. Strong, flexible muscles also help you avoid future posture problems and injuries in the future.
When we have patients in need of neck pain relief (from a whiplash injury, or even from excessive stress), or patients who suffer from lower back pain or headaches (which can stem from neck pain or whiplash), our chiropractor recommends follow up with physical therapy. It is important that our patients work closely within our physical therapy guidelines. Essentially, form is everything. Dr. Stewart knows your condition, your current limitations and the goals we have for helping you overcome those limitations. We will train you to perform certain exercises and stretches based on that understanding.
Correct form accomplishes two very important healing goals. First of all, we teach you the exact form here in our office and observe and coach you through each stretch and exercise so that you will get the most therapeutic benefit out of it. This will help you build up strength and flexibility in previously weak, tight areas. Proper form also helps you avoid future injuries, which is just as important. Dr. Stewart’s goal is not only a full recovery for each patient, but to help them learn how to move, work and exercise more ergonomically in the future to avoid injury. This is what we consider full healing!
