Chiropractic Care At South Pointe Physical Rehab

At South Pointe Physical Rehab our providers practice “Diversified” chiropractic techniques. While there are multiple forms of chiropractic care, Diversified is the most common spinal manipulation technique used by Doctors of Chiropractic (DC). This technique relies on the objective findings that are found by your doctor during examination. Some of the most common areas of findings include: Range Of Motion Deficits, Pain Symptoms, Postural Findings, and Palpation Findings. Motion Palpation and Static Palpation are also common methods used to determine if a vertebrae does not have an optimal movement path or is rotated and causing pain.

Each patient is different and unique when it comes to spinal curvatures, functional movement, and biomechanics. Diversified manipulation is excellent for providing personalized treatment, especially when compared to other chiropractic spinal manipulation methods that use preconceived patterns of treatment, even though each patients needs are unique – resulting in patients receiving cookie cutter treatment regardless of findings. 

Our providers will never use standard preconceived techniques, we recognize that each patient has unique biomechanics and should be treated as so. We differentiate ourselves by not just treating the problem area, but assessing the person as a whole to provide them with the tools for long term healing and pain relief without medications.

What Are Evidence Based Chiropractic Practices?

All of our providers take an evidence based approach to treating patients. While other chiropractic approaches often lead to expensive, long term treatment plans that are designed to keep you coming back and paying for services, our providers main goal is to get patients back to feeling pain free as fast as possible. Treating a patient “forever” is a common misconception about chiropractic care, which we make sure to communicate to our patients from day one. 

Evidence based practices utilize the most compelling evidence for a given diagnosis combined with a deep understanding of the patients values, needs and treatment preferences. We often utilize and teach functional movement rehab methods as well as biomechanics to help our patients move better and decrease pain levels. 

One of the most common misconceptions of patients receiving chiropractic care is that x-ray’s are a chiropractic staple that are required in the initial evaluation. 

Examination via x-ray can still be used as a key part of diagnosis that is used to determine the integrity of the spine, intervertebral discs, and facet joints – but this is only used after an evidence based evaluation deems it necessary. We only recommend imaging at the initial visit if the patient shows signs of trauma or other red flags. For most cases, if a round of conservative chiropractic care utilizing physical mobilizations does not produce the desired progress, then we refer out for x-ray imaging.
