Physiotherapy, often called physical therapy, is a proven method of addressing chronic pain, rehabilitating after an injury, and preventing future injuries. Using evidence-based techniques, our physicians prescribe Cape Coral physiotherapy services to deal with musculoskeletal pain.
At Specific Care Chiropractic, we work to help our patients relieve their pain and recover strength and flexibility. We tailor a treatment plan specifically for the needs of every patient. Schedule an appointment at our Cape Coral office today online or by calling (239) 369-9109.
Our Cape Coral Physiotherapy Services
At Specific Care Chiropractic, our physicians prescribe and perform a wide range of therapies that allow us to fulfill our patients’ needs. We also help them build a strong musculoskeletal system to prevent future pain and injuries.
Some of the therapies available in our office include:
Corrective care is the stage of treatment following chiropractic adjustments to address chronic pain. This stage allows our team to monitor the patient’s symptoms and manage their residual pain.
Corrective care also addresses any recurrences of pain after treatment. This is normal and expected, but we can take steps to adjust your plan and handle your pain when necessary.
Many people rarely think of massage as a type of therapy, but it effectively treats several medical conditions and symptoms, including:
- Muscle tension
- The related pain
Our licensed massage therapists can address pain and stiffness related to muscle and joint dysfunction. Massage may also work to increase circulation, relieve headaches, and more.
Our physicians evaluate each patient’s physical needs. Then, the massage therapists use the appropriate techniques to address them. Massage may also be beneficial alongside rehabilitation or stretching and strengthening to increase flexibility and decrease soreness.
Rehabilitative therapy is among the most prescribed types of physiotherapy. It usually follows an injury that causes disability or loss of range of motion or strength. Our Cape Coral office has a Rehab room that provides the necessary equipment so our therapists can help patients:
- Rebuild their muscle strength
- Regain range of motion
- Improve mobility
- Relearn specific skills or actions
- Maintain stability and balance
Rehabilitative therapy may be a vital part of your plan if you suffered:
- A repetitive motion injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- A traumatic injury, like a joint injury that caused bursitis
- A chronic pain condition, including scoliosis
Stretching and Strength Training
Stretching and strengthening is often the first thing people picture when they think about physical therapy. This type of training may follow rehabilitative treatment, or our physicians may prescribe it instead if we do not believe your losses were serious enough to require rehabilitation.
As part of our initial intake, we will use X-rays and other screening tests to understand your condition. Our team will then use this information to determine the appropriate exercises to help you regain strength and flexibility and build a strong body for the future.
For example, if you suffer from chronic neck pain, our therapists may walk you through several specific stretches and exercises to help strengthen the muscles in your neck and provide a full range of motion. In some cases, your therapist may instruct you to perform specific activities at home one or more times a day.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (E-STIM)
E-STIM uses a device to send small, harmless electric pulses into the body to stimulate specific muscles and muscle groups. These pulses promote repair and healing. We may prescribe E-STIM for chronic pain, muscle spasms, inflammation, and other conditions.
Ultrasound therapy uses a machine to send sound waves into muscle tissue, working similarly to massage. This may encourage blood circulation and healing of damaged tissue. Ultrasound therapy is most commonly used on:
- Lower back
For example, we often use ultrasound therapy on patients who suffer from shoulder bursitis. The inflammation in the bursa can occur because of injury to the nearby muscles, which may respond to this type of therapy.
What Conditions Do We Treat With Chiropractic Care and Physiotherapy?
Our Cape Coral office provides a wide range of chiropractic care and physiotherapy. We focus on preventing injury and disease, but we also offer evidence-based treatments for multiple chronic pain conditions, disorders, and injuries, including:
- Lower back pain
- Back injuries and spinal injuries
- Neck injuries
- Herniated disks
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Muscle strains
- Chronic pain conditions
At Specific Care Chiropractic, we can tailor a treatment plan to meet your needs. Even if you are not sure a chiropractor will help with your diagnosis, we encourage you to consider seeing us for an initial assessment. Our team can determine the services we provide that could address your condition during this appointment.
Specific Care Chiropractic Wants to Help You Address Your Chronic Pain
Our team believes in preventing disease instead of treating a condition only after you develop symptoms. To this end, we will always strive to help every client get healthy and remain as healthy and strong as possible. This approach significantly reduces the risk of injury or chronic pain.
Still, most of our patients are already in pain or have a concern before they come to us for chiropractic care. Our techniques and unique plans can address their needs, including pain and symptom relief. Using chiropractic and physiotherapy services, we help our patients recover so they can focus on getting stronger and protecting their health in the future.
Specific Care Chiropractic’s Cape Coral office is across the street from Caloosa Middle School and just down the road from Cape Coral Hospital. Our address is:
