In our office it’s all about you… feeling better.
We offer treatment of Headaches, Injuries, Repetitive Strain and other Pain and Dysfunction Syndromes through a unique combination of
- muscle therapy
- chiropractic treatment and
- sports/physical rehab
to reduce the likelihood of the problem returning. 30+ years in practice and I’ve found this combined approach to be the most effective for the fastest relief and the greatest recovery.
Dr. Pellington typically spends about 30 minutes with a patient each visit. A typical treatment consists of:
- Direct Muscle Treatment: Therapeutic stretching, compression of “Trigger Points” within the involved muscles reduces the spasm and pain, and gently breaks up the scar tissue and adhesions. It improves circulation to the areas of injury which speeds healing, and increases the degree of recovery.
- Gentle joint manipulation to improve the function of the spinal (or ankle, shoulder, hip, knee) joints. Joints are designed to move freely.
- Additionally, specific, therapeutic stretches and progressive exercises targeting the areas of injury are tailored to the individual’s condition to improve the strength, endurance and flexibility of the muscles, to improve their function and reduce the likelihood of the problem coming back.
It’s a lot more than relief from pain. It’s about being able to enjoy the things you love to do with more vitality and renewed mobility!
Tony Pringle, mechanic: – “Used to be 3 hours on a motorcycle and 6 hours lying down….I lived with it every day for years. I look back now and wonder why?”
Life gets bigger the better you feel.
Think of the muscles like bungee cords attached to the bones.
Combining in-office muscle therapy and joint manipulation with at-home stretches and exercises specifically tailored for each patient is what brings about faster pain relief and greater overall recovery.
You can’t ignore the muscles and expect (any) lasting results. They have to be treated.
If the joints are also involved, you can’t ignore them and expect (any) lasting results. They have to be treated. With any long-standing problem, BOTH the muscles and the joints become involved, creating a complex that must be treated together. You can’t ignore one major component and expect (any) good or lasting results.
And if because of the long-standing nature of the problem, the muscles have become weak, you can’t ignore that and expect (any) good or lasting results. They HAVE to be strengthened.
