Conditions we see often in our office
It is important to first understand that your pain will never be disregarded as not actually existing. Pain is a unique experience and must be explored so that relief can be achieved. In general, most problems can be categorized as new (acute) or old (chronic). The human body experiences the sensation of pain as as the result of something not performing properly.
Some of the common conditions we care for include:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Knee injuries
- Running pain
- Shoulder conditions
- Hip pain
- Lower back pain
- Neck pain
- Nerve pain/carpal tunnel/numbness
- Spinal stenosis
- Sports injuries
- Automobile injuries
- Injuries from work
The number of treatments necessary to resolve a patient’s complaint is very individual.
Factors that may influence recovery include:
- The Patient’s Goals
- Health Status
- Severity of the Injury
- Whether it is a new or old injury
- Compliance with Home/Office Therapies
- The Number of Prior Injuries.
Some patients simply seek relief from the immediate pain and may require only a few treatments, whereas others require more intensive and comprehensive care. Many people make care part of their routine health maintenance; similar to exercising regularly. The decision is always up to you, the patient.
