Doctors of Chiropractic medicine prioritize helping their patients achieve their health goals with a personalized treatment plan. Their approach is based on the individual needs, goals, and preferences of each patient.
When assessing a patient who wishes to reduce pain caused by musculoskeletal dysfunction, they take into consideration the patient's range of motion in the affected area(s) as well as previous medical history or recent injury. The personalized treatment plan may include chiropractic adjustments, manual therapies such as soft tissue techniques or joint mobilization techniques, therapeutic exercises, lifestyle modifications, postural education/ergonomic advice, and advice on lifestyle habits such as stress management.
In addition, they may recommend further treatments for symptom relief depending on the patient's presenting complaint(s) and/or diagnosis. These treatments could include electrical stimulation therapy, ice/heat therapy, ultrasound therapy, or specific rehabilitative exercises designed to improve coordination and balance.
By tailoring their approach to the individual needs of each patient, the doctor of chiropractic medicine ensures that their patients receive the best care possible. Their goal is to provide comprehensive care using evidence-based methods in order to help their patients return to their daily activities pain-free.
