Your Road to Wellness:
Treatment at your Flower Mound Chiropractor will consist of conservative means. We will start by treating the inflammation with therapy, which might include ice, heat, and various types of electric therapy. These therapies aim to control and contain the inflammation.
Next, we will work on restoring the normal joint motion. If necessary, Dr. Brown will use Chiropractic manipulations to reestablish appropriate joint motion.
As proper alignment and joint motion is achieved, a very focused stabilization program will be employed to ensure muscle balance and appropriate posture.
Finally, once the treatment plan is completed, recommended exercises will be continued to maintain strength and flexibility and promote optimal joint function.
Long term prognosis:
If you wait to receive treatment, or if you do not complete an active treatment plan, you may eventually experience neurological symptoms. If left untreated this can require surgical intervention. However, prognosis is good for recovery in first time cases, if therapy is strictly adhered to, and if normal joint function is restored. Chronic cases have an increased chance of re-occurrence due to long standing joint and soft tissue change, but can usually be managed with conservative care.
At Core Chiropractic, our goal is to not only decrease your pain, but also to improve your functionality and quality of life. As such, throughout the course of your treatment we will encourage you to actively participate in your treatment. We stive to foster positive lifestyle habits to enhance your total experience.
We look forward to working with you!
