Eugene chiropractor Dr. Michael Herb is expanding injury rehabilitation and pain management services at Absolute Wellness Center. The practice now integrates chiropractic medicine and massage therapy with acupuncture and physical therapy.
"I am happy to announce the expanded services now available at Absolute Wellness Center," said Dr. Herb. "These new services reflect our commitment to provide patients with the whole body care they need to not only manage pain or injury, but also to improve their health. We are raising the bar for quality, comprehensive care."
Physical therapy exercises can aid in the rehabilitation of injuries following a car accident or sports injury. These exercises help restore movement, flexibility and coordination to the body and also promote spine stabilization.
"A combination of stretching, resistance training, corrective care exercise and core strengthening helps patients gain rehabilitative independence after an injury," said physical therapist Ellen King. "These exercises naturally complement chiropractic adjustments and support the recovery process."
Patients struggling with back pain, headaches, sciatica, fibromyalgia or other chronic pain conditions may benefit from acupuncture treatments. Mary Ann Petersen is a licensed acupuncturist who works closely with Dr. Herb to design custom treatments that help manage a patient's chronic pain.
"Acupuncture treatments are an effective, drug-free option for managing pain," said Petersen. "These treatments can also address a variety of common ailments, enhance the immune system, support physical and emotional healing, and strengthen the mind-body connection. Treatment is so relaxing that it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep."
Together with chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Herb says treatment from an acupuncturist can provide enhanced pain management without the need for medication.
Patients may also wish to incorporate massage therapy into their treatments. Deep tissue massage, for example, can help release tension trapped deep within the body's connective tissue, which helps relieve chronic pain. Massage, like acupuncture, also enhances the mind-body connection and naturally relieves stress.
"All of our treatments seamlessly work together to support the healing process," said Dr. Herb. "A custom treatment program addresses each patient's individual wellness needs and supports whole body health."
The expanded service offerings at Absolute Wellness Center allow for more comprehensive pain management and injury rehabilitation programs. Patients with limited insurance coverage for specific treatments will also benefit by having access to a greater variety of treatment options.
