A family chiropractor is one who treats everyone from newborns to octogenarians. Patients of all ages benefit from the whole-body health approach that chiropractors like Dr. Rodney Crews of Crews Chiropractic in Shreveport, LA provide. We will get to know you before beginning to suggest therapy for your pain relief. Your exam will include an X-ray and then, depending on your pain and comfort level, there may be a few visits before you get a spinal adjustment.
Depending on where your pain is located, there are some therapies that can be very effective for pain relief before you get your first adjustment from our family chiropractor. If you have children who are active in sports, many of these therapies will be a big help with sports injuries.
Electric muscle stimulation
If sore muscles are your problem, electric muscle stimulation uses low levels of electric current to stimulate the muscles so that they can relax. The muscles contract, and it makes them tired. Relaxation follows.
Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves to vibrate and heat the tissue deep below the skin. It promotes healing at a cellular level as well as increasing circulation and providing pain relief.
Cold laser therapy
Cold laser therapy is the use of a laser that emits relatively little heat compared to those used for surgery. Low spectrum light is used to promote healing and circulation deep within the tissues. It helps relieve pain in soft tissues and in joints. It is an effective and safe way to get pain relief.
Hydromassage allows you to lie down on a bed and get a dry water massage on whatever part of your body needs it. If you fall asleep, no one will be surprised.
Spinal adjustments help your body function at the optimal level. The easier it is for messages to travel throughout the body the better, so making sure the spine is not impeding the impulses is vital.
Customized orthotics can help with a variety of issues that all members of the family may suffer from. Posture is important for back health and making sure that your feet provide the proper support and balance can make all the difference.
