Our Little Rock and Benton Physical Therapists can Help
Painful musculoskeletal conditions can affect all areas of your body, for a variety of reasons. By combining skilled chiropractic care and physical therapy in Little Rock, we can help you find long-term relief naturally, without drugs and invasive procedures. The most common situations our Little Rock chiropractor helps with include:
- Correcting poor posture habits (incorrect ergonomics during work, slouching, pulling muscles during yard work or housework, neck craning while working or talking on the phone, sleeping on an unsupportive mattress or using the wrong pillow for sleeping, etc.)
- Treating injuries (car accident injuries, sports injuries, personal injuries)
- Alleviating conditions related to aging (arthritis, degenerative discs, etc.)
Our chiropractor can help correct the posture and spinal alignment problems caused in these situations. But realigning the spine is only the first step. This is where our physical therapist comes in. By providing physical therapy in Little Rock and Benton, we help patients truly go beyond just pain relief to becoming stronger, more mobile, and able to enjoy the activities they enjoyed before pain got in the way. Our physical therapist helps with the following:
- Individualized therapeutic exercise programs: Based on your needs, our chiropractors and physical therapists in Benton and Little Rock will develop a set of exercises and stretches to help you recover strength and mobility.
- Home exercise: We teach you the proper form in the office and how to perform the exercises at home so you can enhance your healing.
- Spinal Stabilization: These core strengthening exercises help you avoid future injury by stabilizing your core (abs, sides, back) muscles so they help you maintain correct posture and form throughout your day.
- Soft tissue and joint mobilization: This hands-on therapy manipulates the fascia near joints and bones to release pressure and tension and improve range of motion.
- Regional myofascial release: After an injury, the muscles and the tissue covering them (fascia) can become tight and painful. This technique stretches and releases these tensions.
- Activities of Daily Living (ADL) Instruction: Gena will teach you more ergonomic ways of accomplishing daily tasks to prevent future pain and injury.
