We help people with fast pain relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, whiplash, arthritis, and sports injuries every day. We help provide care for everything from a kink in the neck to recovery from spine surgery. We have been proud to be the Tacoma chiropractor chosen by thousands of people over the past 25+ years.
Most people we see come to us initially for pain relief. They are often surprised at how effective chiropractic care is for pain relief and care for their neck pain, back pain, or headaches. And they are also happy to lean we treat other muscle and joint conditions and injuries, too – like rotator cuff and shoulder problems, hip pain problems, knee arthritis and pain problems, foot pain and plantar fasciitis, and TMJ problems.
One of the things we educate patients about is how to get EVEN more from their chiropractic care, and how to make sure they are treating their condition more completely and more effectively. Some of these things are straightforward – such as following care recommendations, reporting new symptoms, and avoiding the wrong things.
But we also educate people about other key enhancements to chiropractic care.
Some of these things are very simple but often overlooked. We seen many patients who have had care with other Tacoma chiropractors, or care with physical therapy or medical providers but not had these things emphasized at all.
What are are some of these things?
- DO NOT CHASE PAIN. Pain relief is important, but so are other symptoms. Numbness, tingling, recurrent pain with activities, and stiffness are all potentially important symptoms that may require more care attention.
- FOLLOW "NEW SCHOOL" CONDITIONING ADVICE: Research is clear. The "old school" things that were done in the past, and sometimes still done. like planks, weight or band trading, ball and bosu training, and floor exercises, are off track. Better spine, core, and functional training is done standing, and with 3D dynamic force control. You should be following these "new school" approaches.
- FOLLOW HOME CARE RECOMMENDATIONS: Yes... there needs to be home care. And home care needs to be convenient and progressive. Doing no home care is a bad plan. Becoming active in convenient and progressive home care is the best plan . We see too many patients that are off track on this key aspect of better care.
