At Empire Chiropractic Clinic
, we don't assume that localized pain requires only localized treatment. Your body is a vast network of interworking systems making up a beautiful and complex whole. We believe that the best way to treat any part of your body is to treat it as part of the larger whole. We manage your treatment in stages, emphasizing both the importance of chiropractic adjustments as well as stretches and exercises that strengthen, promote healing, and prevent re-injury.
1) Pain reduction – the first priority of any treatment is to reduce your pain and relieve symptoms. During this portion of your healing, treatments may include physio therapies and chiropractic adjustments.
2) Muscle support – once your pain is under control, we will work with you to build and balance the muscles supporting the injured area. We do this primarily through stretching exercises added to your chiropractic adjustments.
3) Strengthening the spine – in order to promote continued healing and prevent re-injury, we complete your care with exercises that will strengthen your spine and its surrounding muscles.
