Welcome to Lakewood Ranch Chiropractic, where our holistic health team offers chiropractic and physical therapy services in Sarasota and Bradenton. We look forward to helping all of our patients heal from injuries and manage pain by using these non-invasive techniques. If you are interested in obtaining physical therapy services, we invite you to learn more about our methods, our experience, and how we can help you heal.
We understand how the body works, what muscles and joints are connected, and how pain in one area can affect muscle performance and range of motion in a seemingly unrelated area. This deep understanding of body mechanics allows us to support your overall healing.
Our first action is to effectively manage your pain. To this end, we can utilize our chiropractic adjustment training and add physiotherapy methods that decrease pain and inflammation. We may recommend interferential electrical muscle stimulation, cryotherapy, heat, paraffin baths, therapeutic massage, or mechanical traction to speed your healing.
Once your pain has decreased, we will work on restoring flexibility and strength to injured tissue during office appointments. We may massage the tissue, make adjustments, or coach you through therapeutic exercises. Feel supported yet challenged with physical therapy services from our staff.
Next, we will demonstrate corrective exercises that you can do at home. Regularly doing these exercises will retrain your muscles so that they move in an optimal manner. We may correct muscle imbalances, strengthen weak muscles, and make postural corrections that not only help you heal your injuries but make you even stronger than you were before.
We offer physical therapy to help you heal from work injuries, sports injuries, slip and fall, workplace injuries, and much more.
When you come to see us for physical therapy, we first perform a comprehensive evaluation to find the underlying injury. As doctors of chiropractic, we specialize in the musculoskeletal system. We can alleviate pain and inflammation using chiropractic manipulation. Once we have stabilized the pain, we can then move forward with physical therapy to restore your range of motion and strength.
Throughout the physical therapy treatment process, we will see how your body is responding and adjust our treatments to your needs. We know that every patient is unique and that what works for one patient may not work for another. When you see us, rest assured that we will adjust your treatment so it fully meets your needs.
We will also introduce other healing methods, such as therapeutic massage or chiropractic if we feel they can benefit your healing. Learn more about how we can help you recover from an injury by scheduling a new patient consultation.
