Chiropractic

Chiropractors are doctors with a minimum of 7-8 years of post-secondary education who specialize in treatment of the neuromusculoskeletal system – that is to say your bones, joints, muscles, other soft tissues and nervous system.  Like many other professionals, different chiropractors practice differently depending on their areas of interest, education and experience.

More often than not, musculoskeletal problems are more easily treated early rather than later.  The practitioners at MiltonBackDoc specialize in a pro-active approach to health, rehabilitation and musculoskeletal fitness.  They use a variety of chiropractic and physical rehabilitation techniques to treat not only back and neck problems and headache, but also peripheral injuries, such as knee, shoulder (rotator cuff) and foot problems.

Your first visit will start with a thorough history and physical exam to diagnose your particular symptoms.  Treatment will be explained and delivered that day if appropriate. You will be provided with advice for home so that you can help yourself between sessions, and if warranted, a request for permission to send a note to your family doctor so they can know the details of the initial exam and treatment.

These Initial Visits are usually 45 min-1 hour in length.  Subsequent Treatment visits will be tailored to your injury and how you specifically are progressing.  These visits are usually 20-30 minutes in length and may include:

  • electrotherapy (TENS, IFC)
  • ultrasound
  • acupuncture
  • stretching
  • supervised exercise
  • adjustment/spinal manipulation
  • joint mobilization
  • soft tissue therapy/myofascial release

Depending on your level of symptoms and function, a treatment plan will be recommended along with an estimate of how many visits may be required. If your condition will require >3-4 weeks of therapy, re-assessment will occur within that time frame to ensure that you are improving and treatment is working.

Chiropractic services are provided at MiltonBackDoc by Dr. Kuehnel and Dr. Stone.
