Registered massage therapy works to therapeutically optimize general health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. It involves prevention and treatment of physical dysfunctions while simultaneously providing relaxation to the mind and body. This type of therapy helps to reduce or even eliminate the discomfort associated with muscles, connective tissues, joints, tendons, and ligaments.

Sports therapy is an aspect of physical therapy that aims to prevent and treat injuries from physical activity. A professional Chiropractor in Burlington may help patients gain optimum levels of mobility and sport specific fitness levels through rehabilitation and prevention techniques. A top Burlington Chiropractor, such as Edgar Family Chiropractic, will utilise specific exercise principles to provide immediate assessment and care to treat injuries endured during physical activities.

Exercises a sports therapist may incorporate into treatment include strengthening and stretching motions in order to prevent and treat muscle tears and exhaustion.

Low back pain is a common complaint for many when they visit their family physicians; however, new guidelines have been released by the American College of Physicians regarding treatment for back pain.

These guidelines emphasize that non-drug therapies, such as Chiropractic, must be the primary source of care for a patient.  A medical doctor must recommend alternative therapies rather than invasive surgeries or prescription medication.  A lower back pain chiropractor will select treatment plans with the fewest harms and lowest costs as opposed to pharmacologic therapies or surgery.

A lot of people think that waking up with neck stiffness is a normal thing… it’s not!  If you wake up with neck discomfort, you might not be using the right pillow. Do this simple test when you wake up: tilt your head forward, do you feel pain?  If you do, your pillow may be to blame. Our busy days put stress on our joints and muscles so sleeping should be a time for repair and healing, that is IF you’re using a proper pillow, otherwise, you’re just causing more trauma! An easy way to test if your pillow is right for you is by laying on your side and checking that your neck and body are aligned with your head, if not, your pillow may be too high or too low.

When you experience an injury it is not only important to receive treatment as soon as possible but to become educated on how the process of healing unfolds. Visiting a top Burlington Chiropractor, such as Edgar Family Chiropractic, can be both a therapeutic and education experience. Although the length of time it takes to mend may vary depending on the injury and person, there are typically always three phases of healing.
