How an Osteopractor Can Improve Your Life

How an Osteopractor Can Improve Your Life

Suppose you experience neck pain, low back pain, headaches, tennis elbow, heel pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, or knee osteoarthritis. In that case, seeking treatment in Battle Creek, MI, from osteopractor Dr. Mohinder Chawdhry of the Total Health Center, Inc., is wise.

Let's examine some of the advantages of physical therapy from our osteopractor.

Physical Therapy Helps You Avoid Surgery

Physical therapy is an effective solution for treating many illnesses and injuries, often without surgery. This treatment differs from surgery because it can identify the source of pain without relying on diagnostic tests like MRI or X-rays. With physical therapy, however, you can find solutions to your discomfort.

Dr. Mohinder Chawdhry uses manual therapies like Gua-Sha, cupping, FRAMS, and kinesiology taping to break down chronic scar adhesions that restrict joint movement and decrease blood flow.

Physical Therapy Speeds up Recovery

Physical therapy (PT) helps expedite recovery by restoring function and strengthening injured areas. Additionally, PT can enhance a patient's mobility and quality of life.

Our PTs are healthcare professionals with advanced training in movement disorders and musculoskeletal function. We help speed recovery by diagnosing and treating movement problems in people of all ages by providing hands-on care, education, and prescriptions for specific exercises or activities.

Dr. Mohinder Chawdhry will begin by physically examining you and assessing your needs. Then, he'll ask about pain or other symptoms, how you move, and any medical history. Afterward, he'll create a treatment plan to address your goals and specific impairments.

Physical Therapy Helps With Injury Prevention

Sports injuries are preventable if physical therapists can help. We do this by correcting functional movement imbalances that may have caused the problem in the first place, using exercises to increase flexibility and strength, and instructing you on proper body mechanics specific to your sport.

Our osteopractor PT in Battle Creek, MI, employs a range of treatment modalities that are proven effective for healing injuries and musculoskeletal conditions. These include joint mobilization, manipulation, dry needling (similar to acupuncture), therapeutic exercise, muscle reeducation, cupping, hot/cold therapy, and other techniques.

Physical Therapy Improves Your Flexibility

Flexibility is an essential skill for movement, helping to reduce the risk of injury. It also promotes balance, coordination, and posture. Stretching can improve your flexibility with targeted muscle groups. These exercises can be done either standing or while moving.

Static stretches are slow and gentle movements that allow you to hold a position for 20-60 seconds. On the other hand, dynamic stretches are active movements that let you move through your range of motion.
