Diagnosing Your Problem
When you visit our Cincinnati, OH, office, our practitioner will ask you questions about any injuries or diseases you have that could affect the body part in question and your health in general. This allows us to tailor a treatment plan to meet your needs that's both safe and effective.
Before determining the cause, our practitioner will want to know how severe the pain is and when you experience it. Our chiropractor will also want to know what worsens it. Additionally, our practitioner will ask you to move the joint so our chiropractor may see firsthand how much you can move the body part.
In some cases, our practitioner might order imaging to get a glimpse of the internal structure of the body part. This can be used to diagnose the problem directly or rule out certain causes.
How Physical Therapy Can Help
Our chiropractor may recommend you undergo physical therapy to help stretch the area and optimize function and flexion. During this approach, you'll be guided through a series of exercises that work the body part. They're slow stretches that steadily increase in intensity as you heal.
Physical therapy can help you regain stability or the use of that body part.
Through physical therapy, you may be able to optimize flexibility and stamina.
Some patients notice a difference in how much pain they have. For one, these stretches increase blood flow in the region, which helps deliver additional nutrients necessary for healing to the region.
You may also learn to prevent injuries in the future with physical therapy.
Physical therapy is one treatment approach offered by Dr. Dhaliwal of Chiro Health Plus at our Cincinnati, OH, office. It's useful for a variety of conditions and truly helps get to the root of the problem, not just masking your symptoms until the injury or illness heals on its own.
