Physical Therapy, Chiropractic & Acupucture
Chiropractic combined with physical therapy (PT) is the most appropriate approach to these types of injuries. Chiropractic care utilizes specific bone manipulations (Adjustments) to help normalize spinal function. This is crucial in the beginning phases of healing to bring back proper motion, but return of functional joint motion usually requires 2-3 months of chiropractic care. Physical therapy is also crucial in allowing the body to heal properly beginning about 2-4 weeks post injury and utilizes active care. Active care allows the soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, and tendons) to heal most effectively with minimal scar tissue and physical therapy can take from a few months up to a year to complete the healing process. Modalities/therapies (Passive Care) such as ice, hot packs, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, traction, etc. are also utilized to compliment the different phases of the healing process while undergoing both chiropractic care and physical therapy.
