An osteopractor is a physical therapist who may also be a medical doctor or a doctor of osteopathic medicine. To become an osteopractor in Battle Creek, MI you must undergo extensive post-graduate training. The areas in which Dr. Chawdhry has done his training, include orthopedic, neck, and back rehabilitation. Some therapies used by osteopractors include thrust manipulation, dry needling, and instrument-aided manual therapy.

Thrust Manipulation

Thrust manipulation is a manipulation that is a high-velocity low-amplitude therapeutic movement. Physical therapists have been using this approach since the 1920s. It is a passive movement that is applied to joints and soft tissues. The benefits can be almost instantaneous in some cases and include a decrease in pain, increased mobility, tight muscle relaxation, and improved ability to perform daily activities. You will be evaluated to determine if this is a therapy from which you can benefit. 

Dry Needling

Dry needling is a modern technique that uses thin stainless steel needles that are inserted into trigger points to reduce pain. No liquid is injected, thus the name dry needling. This can help with both acute and chronic conditions of the muscles and connective tissues. When the needle is inserted, the muscles contract, which then causes relaxation. The result is reduced pain, more flexibility, and getting back normal mobility. This is often used to treat sports injuries.
