Content reviewed by Dr. Sam Reals, DC | ACSM-EPC, American College of Sports Medicine - Exercise Physiologist Certified
ICT Muscle & Joint Clinic’s chiropractors believe in decreasing pain and restoring balance to the body as quickly as possible. In order to do this, we often integrate chiropractic rehabilitative services. Chiropractic rehabilitation is the process of restoring tissue quality, mobility, and movement quality through specific exercises. Many of the rehabilitation exercises we integrate are advanced certifications in physical therapy such as DNS and McKenzie (MDT). Our staff frequently attends the best evidence-based rehabilitation seminars to provide you the most effective treatment approach possible.
Rehabilitation consists of 2 phases. Each phase may include specifically designed stretches, strength exercises, corrective exercises, nerve flossing procedures, or nutritional modifications to restore your health. Each treatment phase has a purpose!
Phase 1 – Decrease Pain
Pain is the number one reason people seek chiropractic care. Our primary focus is to get you fast and effective pain relief for your muscles and joints. We do this first by identifying your TRUE pain source, not merely the REACTIVE pain source.
Phase 2 – Restore Balance
There are two components to Phase 2 care:
Component 1 – In-Office Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy Based Services
Component 1 is thought of as in-office care, which will take place at chiropractic and physical rehab clinic in Wichita, KS. After categorizing your pain, we will teach you the best physical rehab exercises to reduce your pain. Often, one or two exercises are all you need. By combining the best of chiropractic and physical therapy techniques such as: Chiropractic Adjustments, Dry Needling, Cupping, ASTYM, our chiropractor and physical rehab experts can speed up your recovery in office while you perform the at-home physical therapy exercises.
Component 2 – At-Home Rehabilitative Exercises
Component 2 can be considered as at-home care. The second phase of our chiropractors’ rehabilitation program is teaching our customers how to perform these at home exercises correctly for maximum results while reducing the chance of injury. By teaching you HOW and WHEN to perform these exercises at home makes your care less expensive than a traditional “perform only at our facility” type approach and is far more effective in self treating for the future.
“Give a person a fish and feed them that day. Teach a person to fish and you give them a way to feed themselves for a lifetime”
By teaching you these pain-coping skills and strengthening exercises, you will be better equipped to help yourself wherever you may find yourself (home, work, golf course, etc.).
Through the combination of our in-office treatment and at-home exercises we can effectively decrease the amount of time, energy, frustration and intensity of your pain. Our goal at ICT Muscle & Joint Clinic is to provide Wichita residents and Kansans the most advanced chiropractic and rehabilitative approach!
