What is Physical Therapy  

Physical therapy is a type of rehabilitation treatment that patients seek out to regain complete physical mobility or at least the highest level possible. Dr. Hansen uses various techniques to improve a patient's muscular, skeletal or neurological condition while they undergo therapy. He helps patient to manage pain naturally, so the therapy is more comfortable for the patient. In addition to helping with pain and recovery, our chiropractor also helps patients prevent injuries in the future.  

What to Expect With a New York Chiropractor 

The chiropractor will guide the patient through different exercises that strengthen and increase the patient's range of motion of the affected area. A chiropractor will request the patient do exercises based on his recommendations that correspond with the patient's recovery. The movements increase in intensity as the patient heals and the treatment progresses.

The treatment usually consists of both exercises and stretches. The exercises the patient has to do depend on the area. For example, a patient who has a neck injury will have to rotate the neck and move it in different directions. The chiropractor will have the patient move the neck more and more each session until full motion is restored.  The exercises and stretches will ultimately improve the effectiveness of physical therapy. 

In addition the exercises and stretches, the chiropractor may recommend hot and cold therapy to reduce pain and swelling. Lifestyles changes may be recommended to reduce strain on the area. Supplements may be prescribed in order to ensure the patient receives optimal nutrition during the recovery process. The chiropractor may recommend the patient lose weight and will advise on ways to do so in order to lessen the amount of pressure on the area. The practitioner might also recommend exercises to do at home.  

Benefits of Chiropractic Care on Physical Therapy

Chiropractic care promotes flexibility and an improved level of mobility and function. Our treatment even has the ability to enhance performance and increase strength. Treatment with us has an impact on coordination and stability. Many of our patients remain with us after they complete physical therapy to enhance their athletic performance. Chiropractic care reduces the amount of pain a patient experience since the treatment is geared toward increasing flexion and movement by loosening tight muscles. Additionally, by increasing blood flow to the muscles, the patient improves the recovery process by promoting healing. The increase in nutrients and oxygen to the site promote healing. The person will recover faster for this reason.
