Physical Therapy

At New Jersey Rehab Experts, we offer comprehensive care, including the services of experienced chiropractic physicians. If you’re looking for responsible, non-invasive treatment for your back pain or other physical problems, a chiropractic physician may be able to help.

What Are Chiropractic Physicians And What Do They Do?

Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) undergo about 8 years of higher education, during which they learn to treat numerous disorders of the body. While chiropractors are widely known for treating back and neck pain, they also treat conditions like herniated discs, compressed nerves, migraine headaches, sciatica, sports injuries, and chronic pain.

Many different conditions of the bones, muscles, ligaments, and nerves respond favorably to chiropractic treatment — without invasive procedures or the use of addictive narcotics.

What Can You Expect When You Visit A Chiropractor?

Chiropractic doctors specialize in the manipulation of the bones, joints, and ligaments to improve blood flow, circulation, relieve painful pressure on nerves, and speed up the body’s natural healing processes.

After taking a careful inventory of your health and troublesome symptoms, your chiropractic doctor will prescribe whatever treatment is most appropriate for your condition. It may be necessary for your chiropractor to order x-rays or an MRI before beginning treatment in order to safely manage your condition.

Some of the most common treatments chiropractors use include:

  • Spinal or joint mobilization and manipulation
  • Joint taping and bracing
  • Counseling on dietary changes and weight reduction
  • Soft tissue therapy and massage, including the use of heat or cold therapy
  • Rehabilitative exercises to improve your overall physical endurance and reduce the stress on your body as a whole

Exactly what treatment you will receive depends a lot on the problems you have. For example, if you have sciatica, spinal or joint manipulation may realign your bones and relieve the pressure on your nerves, reducing or eliminating your pain. If you’ve suffered an injury to your wrist, taping and bracing can help you continue your everyday activities, like work, while you heal — without risking further injury.

If you suffer from inflammatory conditions, like arthritis, a chiropractic doctor can discuss altering your diet and how to safely reduce your weight to help with your condition. If your posture is contributing to a condition like “text neck,” your chiropractor can show you how to correct your posture and demonstrate exercises that will help relieve the strain your body experiences on a daily basis.

Soft tissue therapy, including the application of heat or cold (depending on your problem), is often used in conjunction with other therapies. Soft tissue therapy often quickly reduces your symptoms and provides immediate pain relief while you’re undergoing other rehabilitative treatment.

Is Chiropractic Care Covered By Your Insurance?

Many health insurance providers, including Medicare Part B, do offer some form of coverage for chiropractic treatments! Since the terms of your policy ultimately dictate whether or not services are covered, you should check with your provider to see what chiropractic services they cover and what co-pays are expected.
