Combining Physiotherapy and Chiropractic Care for Pain Relief

Here at Camelback Medical Centers in Phoenix and Scottsdale, your chiropractor may suggest adding physiotherapy to your injury recovery or pain management treatment plan. Through chiropractic care, your chiropractor can correct the alignment of your spine for pain and injury relief and optimum nervous system function. At the same time, physiotherapy maximizes your health too—helping you get long-term pain relief, regain strength, flexibility and range of motion by using specific exercise, stretching and neuromuscular techniques to retrain muscles and soft tissues for maximum healing and function.

Physiotherapy Techniques

Our Scottsdale and Phoenix physiotherapy team uses a wide variety of techniques and exercises to help you achieve your individual health goals. Some of these include:

  • Therapeutic exercises and stretches—Depending on your specific needs, we coach, train and work with you on specific exercises and stretches that address your injury or condition. These may include exercises to improve isolated muscle groups and stabilize your core, stretches to help you regain range of motion and ergonomic training to help you avoid further injury.
  • Neuromuscular treatment—Neuromuscular techniques specifically address pain and dysfunction related to neuromuscular conditions. Neuromuscular treatments include manual therapies to decrease muscle spasms and pain, retrain muscle tissues and help people with debilitating conditions experience improvement in quality of life, movement, and to prevent further dysfunction.
  • Physiotherapy massage techniques—There are several highly-specialized massage techniques that are part of most physiotherapy treatment plans. These include Myofascial Release to improve the health of the body’s connective tissues and to remove tight knots of painful tissues that prevent optimum movement. Even Swedish Massage can be used for physiotherapy in order to relax the body and help reduce inflammation and musculoskeletal tensions for natural pain management.
