At U First Pain Care & Rehab, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Norristown, Broomall, and Cheltenham clinics.
Non-Cracking Chiropractic Care
Many patients worry about painful “cracking” when twisting of the neck or back to perform chiropractic adjustments. The injured area is so tender or sore that patients really don't want any high force adjustment with “cracking” or “popping”. The cracking or popping sound basically happens when gases are released from fluid in the joints involved. Chiropractic technology has advanced over the years. Now there are many advanced chiropractic devices and low force techniques to manipulate the various joints of the body without "cracking".
We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle, low force chiropractic techniques. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, We have years of training and experience in spinal adjustments.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
