At Element Wellness and Sports Rehabilitation, your chiropractic physician will perform a thorough history and evaluation to discover the root cause of your pain, not simply chase your symptoms. The thoroughness of our evaluations will help us to find the correct diagnosis, and therefore, provide you with an accurate and specific treatment plan. Your treatment strategy will then be tailored to fit your individual health concern(s) and your goals. We believe the best way to help an adjustment hold longer, is to provide an appropriate amount of soft tissue work to your muscles, fascia, and nervous system. We will also teach you an exercise program that will facilitate any soft tissue or spinal corrections and reinforce the motor control necessary for continued improvement toward your goals. This will be a team effort between you and your chiropractor.
