In general, the chiropractic profession evaluates the spine or any extremity joint (i.e. knee, shoulder) and its supportive soft tissues to determine proper body mechanics and movement. It also assesses if pain and dysfunction are due to one or more possibilities, including degenerative changes, arthritis, sprains, strains, muscle imbalances, muscle spasms, weakness, entrapments of nerves or inter-vertebral disk herniations.
Our experienced, board-certified Chiropractic physicians focus our treatment in the field of Sports Medicine and Physical Rehabilitation, evaluating the impact of a condition on the whole person, not just symptoms. They see patients of all ages who are experiencing a wide range of problems, from back pain, headaches, carpal tunnel, knee injuries, frozen shoulders to muscle weakness, or any injury which makes it difficult to function at home, in the workplace or during recreational and athletic activities.
You will find your experience at Goodyear Health Center to be pleasant and very different compared to most other chiropractic clinics. We devote approximately one hour for each session utilizing different techniques and treatment types, such as electrical stimulation, ultrasound, manual therapy, adjusting techniques to all joints, massage, stretching, coordination and muscle re-education techniques, physical rehab and exercises, or acupuncture and nutritional counseling. In a single visit, it is not uncommon to be treated by multiple providers at the same time to get the most out of your appointment.
Every patient’s treatment will differ depending on what is medically necessary for their condition, and may even be different from one visit to the next. Our treatments are comprehensive and detailed and will initially focus on the primary goal of reducing your pain. This will be comprised of mostly passive treatment in the form of adjustments, massage, desensitizing techniques, stretching, and physical therapy modalities. Once your pain has been reduced, you will be transitioned to a more active care program in which you will actively participate in your recovery. This phase of care is important for a full recovery and will incorporate physical rehabilitation exercises. You will also be given an exercise program to perform at home. Being an active participant in the recovery process holds you accountable, gives you a better understanding of your condition and has been proven to lead to better long-term outcomes.
