Peoria Pain Management
The physical medicine treatment plan is designed to optimize the function of the patient by using Prescription Supplements, physical therapies, Trigger Point Injections, therapeutic and corrective exercises. Additionally, our chiropractors may include movement and activity modifications, adaptive equipment, assisting devices, orthotics or braces, and training approaches. These elements can be integrated into a complete rehabilitation plan to relieve pain and recover functionality and mobility.
One element of rehabilitation is massage therapy. Through the gentle rubbing and manipulation of affected muscles and tissues, we soothe the aching areas of your body and induce a state of relaxation. Massage therapy increases the healing flow of oxygen-rich blood throughout your body and helps remove accumulated toxins. Massage has also proven effective at reducing the pain of headaches and migraines often associated with a car accident injury or stress. This therapy helps maintain balance in your body and is combined with our other therapeutic treatment methods to enhance the rehabilitation process.
Another form of care our chiropractor may add to the hands-on work of massage therapy is corrective exercises. These exercises are helpful in strengthening muscles that may have been damaged in a car accident injury or workplace injury. They can also be used to correct irregularities in the body, which may be causing symptoms such as headaches and migraines. Corrective exercises can help strengthen the core muscles of this area to improve posture, reduce pain, and improve mobility and functionality. We also correct irregularities in the body by using Trigger Point Injections and Joint Injections. Corrective exercises created by physical medicine physicians often include movements and activity modifications that restore the proper movement and functionality of the body. Additionally, adaptive equipment or assisting devices may be employed to help patients in their rehabilitative exercises.
The final element of our treatment plan may consist of nutritional counseling. A healthy body needs to have toxins removed and healing nutrients added. Some symptoms, such as headaches and migraines, can be caused by an injury, stress or an unhealthy balance in the body. Our nutritional counseling will assist in your rehabilitation process by making sure your body has the healthy nutrients and vitamins it needs to recover faster.
In addition to treating chronic pain conditions and injuries, physical medicine and rehabilitation provides musculoskeletal pain management, plant based Trigger Point Injections and Joint Injections, and obesity and lifestyle disease counseling and modification. Physical medicine has a variety of applications and treatment methods that focus on an integrated approach to diagnose, treat and rehabilitate a range of conditions, injuries and disorders.
