Physical Therapy Accelerates Healing Process, Reports Atlantic Chiropractic Center

PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Jan. 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Physical therapy treatment may help accelerate a patient’s healing process after injury, reports Atlantic Chiropractic Center. Portsmouth chiropractor Dr. Wayne Clough says that patients who receive physical therapy in addition to chiropractic adjustments heal faster by building a greater range of mobility, coordination, flexibility and balance. Dr. Clough stresses that physical therapy works best when treatments are customized to meet a patient’s unique pain management and injury rehabilitation needs. Atlantic Chiropractic Center provides physical therapy for osteoarthritis, low back pain, spinal disorders like spinal stenosis, herniated discs, fractures and dislocations, and soft tissue trauma.

“Physical therapy is a natural complement to chiropractic care whether a patient is recovering from a sports injury or needs support treating chronic pain,” said Portsmouth chiropractor Dr. Wayne Clough. “I work closely with our physical therapist to create personalized corrective exercise programs. All our programs are tailored to a patient's unique recovery needs. There are no generic plans at our practice.”

Depending on a patient’s injury rehabilitation or pain management needs, treatment plans from Atlantic Chiropractic Center may include a regimen of activities to improve strength, coordination, flexibility, balance, range of motion, posture and body mechanics. “Chiropractic care is often the first line of treatment following injury or pain,” said Dr. Clough. “We work to restore function and stability back to the spine. Next, once I have cleared patients for corrective exercises, they can begin a custom physical therapy program. Many patients continue receiving weekly or bi-weekly adjustments in addition to their physical therapy exercises. We find that this integrated care approach delivers optimal patient outcomes.”

Dr. Clough and the Atlantic Chiropractic Center team offer integrated chiropractic care and physical therapy plans for patients with low back pain, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, repetitive motion/stress injuries, fractures and dislocations, and soft tissue trauma including bursitis, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, and ligature sprains. Physical therapy is also available for patients after a stroke or for patients who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis (MS) and other neurological disorders.

Dr. Clough says that offering physical therapy and chiropractic treatment together from the same practice also improves patient outcomes thanks to easier care coordination. “By providing chiropractic care and physical therapy in our practice, we make it easy and convenient for patients to receive a full range of treatments under one roof,” said Dr. Clough. “Having all our patient’s x-rays, diagnostic test results and records in one place also simplifies paperwork and prevents confusion and errors. I am able to collaborate closely with our physical therapist to ensure every patient receives the elevated level of care they deserve.”
