ProActive Healthcare: chiropractic physical medicine for injures and better posture

At our practice, we believe that good posture is crucial to overall health and athletic performance. Poor posture can lead to chronic pain, muscle imbalances, and even reduced lung capacity. That's why we place a strong emphasis on correcting posture in our athlete-centered performance program, using functional neurology and biomechanics to assess overactive, underactive, and habituated areas of the brain.

Many of our patients have tried multiple doctors, rehab centers, and practitioners before coming to us, but they often see improvements that they haven't seen before. This is because we take a personalized approach with each patient, building a customized program around movement neurology, pain neurophysiology, visual and vestibular interactions with the musculoskeletal system, motor learning concepts, behavior modification approaches, and more.

So, what does this mean in simpler terms? We start by assessing how you move your neck, back, arms, and legs, as well as your posture. This gives us insight into how your brain is functioning because it controls your muscle tone and joint movements, which in turn affects your posture and movement. We take a comprehensive approach to correcting abnormalities in posture and movement, which can lead to improved athletic performance or relief from chronic pain. By addressing these underlying issues, we can help you achieve optimal health and performance.

 Motor Vehicle Crash Rehabilitation: Managing Pain and Finding the Mechanism of Injury

Motor vehicle crashes can result in injuries that require specialized rehabilitation to manage pain and promote recovery. Understanding the mechanism of your injury is crucial in developing an effective treatment plan. Our treatment aims to guide you through the process of motor vehicle crash rehabilitation, pain management, and finding the underlying cause of your injury.

     Consultation with Our Primary Care Spine Physician:

Start your rehabilitation journey by consulting with a primary care spine physician (PCSP) or spinal injury expert. We will conduct a comprehensive evaluation, considering your medical history and performing a physical examination. Make sure to provide detailed information about the crash or injury, the pain you're experiencing, and any additional symptoms.

    Diagnostic Tests:

Based on your examination, your PCSP may order diagnostic tests such as X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans, or other imaging studies. These tests can help identify structural damage, fractures, soft tissue injuries, or other crash-related conditions.

    Specialist Referral:

Following the diagnostic tests, your PCSP may refer you to a specialist who can further evaluate and treat your specific injuries. The type of specialist will depend on the nature of your injury. For example, orthopedic surgeons can address orthopedic injuries, while neurologists can assess neurological symptoms.

    Rehabilitation Specialist:

Rehabilitation specialists play a vital role in motor vehicle crash rehabilitation. We offer physical rehabilitation for restoring function, managing pain, and enhancing your quality of life. TWe will design a personalized treatment plan that may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, pain management techniques, and other interventions.

    Pain Management Specialist:

If your pain persists or is severe, a pain management specialist can provide specialized care. These specialists have extensive experience in managing chronic pain and can offer various treatments such as medications, injections, nerve blocks, physical modalities, and behavioral interventions.

    Collaborative Approach:

Throughout your rehabilitation process, a collaborative approach among healthcare professionals is essential. Specialists will work together to assess your progress, adjust treatment plans as needed, and provide comprehensive care. This multidisciplinary approach ensures that all aspects of your injury and pain are addressed effectively.

What Makes Our Care Unique

Pain neuroscience: we check the different pain fibers going to the area of pain. Sometimes the body wants hot, cold, vibration, compression, KT tape, or another stimulation.

Movement Neurology: we determine if all your joints are moving fully in all directions. If they are not we determine if it is a muscle, nerve or receptor issue and give you ways to make changes. We walk you through how to move all your joints in all normal movement patterns.

Sports Vision Training: your body will make posture changes if you have poor vision function in one or both eyes. If you have a weaker left eye you may be changing your head to use the right eye more. You may have 20/20 vision when you are standing still and looking at a non-moving target, but vision get worse when you are moving or the target is changing positions.

Vestibular rehabilitation: this is a system found in your ears that control balance and vision when you are moving either your head or body. If this system is not working you will experience vertigo/dizziness, motion sickness, or may just have lower energy because it strains your visual system which uses much of your body’s fuel.

Respiratory rehabilitation and training: if you are not having proper inhalation or exhalation or your diaphragm muscle is too tight, your brain is probably not getting enough oxygen or an improper balance of oxygen/carbon dioxide. This can lead to fatigue, muscle tightness and improper brain function. We assess for hyperventilation and arrhythmia breathing patterns. If you have dysfunctions we will show you how to breath better for better movement or pain relief.

Modern strength and mobility training: we offer strengthening programs but ours are unique for brain function. It is strange but we may only us resistant training for one side of the body for a few weeks to improve pain on the opposite side of the body. Our goal is for you to have full mobility in your neck, back, shoulders, elbow, wrists, hips, knees and feet with no pain.

We Help You

Our typical patients include those who are suffering from:

  • Chronic illness, chronic pain
  • Chronic stress, anxiety, trauma
  • Poor sense of balance, trouble walking
  • Headaches and back pain
  • Breathing and digestion problems

By identifying and training underperforming parts of the brain, we can achieve almost immediate gains in performance, including:

  • Strength, flexibility &range of movement
  • Balance
  • Coordination
  • Vision
  • Activity-specific skills

Your body only performs as well as your brain lets it. If your brain is underperforming, your body underperforms too. So, it makes sense that your brain should be at the heart of everything you do to improve your movements.
