Physical Therapy at Grand Island Chiropractic

Most people seek out chiropractic care because they’re in pain. Even more, they’ve been stopped from doing something in their lives because of the discomfort or a form of dysfunction. At Grand Island Chiropractic, we want to offer the services you need to restore your health.

Several forms of physical therapy modalities are available at our office to help you recover quickly and efficiently:

Electrical muscle stimulation. An electrical current runs through pads that can be attached anywhere on the body. We have several different types of electric muscle stimulation, meaning we can match your particular needs to the type used.

Traction tables. One type of traction isn’t right for everyone. That’s why we have different forms available, such as one for nerve compression disorders and another for sciatica. You’ll lie down on a comfortable roller table and let the table do the work for you.

Exercises and stretches. Almost all of our patients will receive home exercises, stretches and instructions for care. If you have an injury, we will get you through the initial phases of recovery before we prescribe your customized exercises to you.

The majority of people who receive physical therapy in our office are chiropractic patients first. There are certain cases, however, that may benefit from a form of physical therapy as a stand-alone modality. If you have questions, give us a call and we’ll get you scheduled for a consultation.

How many physical therapy sessions will I need/how often will you be seeing me?

We use physical therapy as an adjunct to the chiropractic adjustment. We feel that aligning the joint whether it be spinal or extremity is the key, but to help aid the soft tissue we typically use some physical therapy on each visit. It may be ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, traction, Active Release Techniques, intersegmental traction and postural exercise techniques.
Do I need to wear any particular clothing to my sessions?

Typically loose fitting clothing is best, but not necessary. We do gown our patients if that is indicated.
Will insurance cover my PT?

Yes. Every insurance policy is different so we do try and check for the patient so they will know what to expect. Medicare and Medicaid do not pay for PT.
If you are getting PT, who will you be seeing at the office or does each chiropractor help with the PT?

95% of all PT setups are preformed by our trained staff. The chiropractor will designate placement and occasionally will help with a set up.
