If you decide to follow the recommendations you will receive your first treatment. In order to gain the benefits of Chiropractic adjustments, the doctor must first deal with the patients’ immediate pain and discomfort.
By utilizing physical therapies such as moist heat, ice, electrical stimulation, massage, and ultrasound, the patients’ pain and inflammation can be minimized, allowing the doctor to deliver the corrective adjustment with minimal force and greater comfort. As pain and inflammation subside, specific stretches and exercises will be recommended, which increase mobility and strength, providing longer lasting effect and reduce the possibility of recurrence.
Dr. Ranzette has found that these therapies are a vital compliment to the Chiropractic adjustment.
