Conditions That Physiotherapy Help

Chiropractic Huntington NY PhysiotherapyPhysiotherapy helps restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of patients suffering from injuries or disease. Physiotherapy or "medically directed rehab" helps restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health. Our Huntington patients include accident victims and individuals with disabling conditions such as low-back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fractures, head injuries, and cerebral palsy.

Treatment often includes exercise; especially for patients who have been immobilized or who lack flexibility, strength, or endurance. Physiotherapy helps encourage patients to use their muscles to increase their flexibility and range of motion. More advanced exercises focus on improving strength, balance, coordination, and endurance. The goal is to improve how an individual functions at work and at home.

Physiotherapy also helps treat a wide range of disorders; such as pediatrics, geriatrics, orthopedics, sports medicine, neurology, and cardiopulmonary physiotherapy.

FAQ's About Physiotherapy

How Physiotherapy Works

Balance Chiropractic and Wellness Center of Huntington was designed to provide an ideal environment for healing your body, through chiropractic, massage or physiotherapy. When you arrive at Integrative, our physicians will take a thorough history, and evaluation of the entire body including posture and biomechanics, range of motion and joint mobility to find out the cause of pain or disability. You will then discuss treatment options and goals, so that we can customize a treatment plan catered to you.

Each session will last roughly one hour. The frequency of visits and the length of treatment is determined by the physician who prescribed the treatment.

The results are typically a result of the patient’s commitment. When the patient follows the plan, does their exercises as often as suggested and using the proper techniques, the treatment is typically very successful.

Before Your Appointment

It is a good idea to arrive at your physiotherapy appointment properly dressed. It is best that you wear snug comfortable clothing that doesn't restrict your movement. It is also a good idea to bring your insurance card, a form of identification, the prescription that your physician gave you, and if needed, your co-pay.

Types of Physical Therapy We Offer

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical Muscle Stimulation is an exceptional way to help the body in the healing process. This is accomplished by sending a very small electrical current into the affected soft tissue injury or muscle spasm. The therapy utilizes this current in an effort to help reduce swelling and release trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. It does this by helping the body to release natural relievers of pain often referred to as endorphins.

This is a great therapy if there is a spasm in a back or neck muscle. It works well in relaxing the muscle and allowing it to return to its normal state rather quickly. Short therapy sessions are excellent at facilitating healing from acute and chronic pain.

Interferential Electro-Therapy

Inferential Electro-Therapy is an excellent method of helping the body deal with spasms, sprains, and issues related to soft tissues. This therapy accomplishes this with a very low simulated frequency that is put on the soft tissue. The feeling of this therapy is very light and most patients feel very comfortable during the treatment.

In addition to this therapy simulating the body's natural healing method by helping it to produce natural pain killing endorphins, it also helps with the release of these strains, spasms and soft tissue issues.

Whole Body Vibration

Whole body vibration (WBV) was discovered by Vladimir Nazarov who was a Russian scientist. He used a program that tested WBV on cosmonauts to help minimize muscle loss and bone mass while in space. Now, millions of people including professional athletes with a variety of ailments are successfully being treated with WBV. There are hundreds of published peer-reviewed studies on the effects of WBV which include bone density improvements, reduction of cellulite, increased muscle strength and muscle tone, decreased stress hormones, improved lymphatic drainage, reduced pain on joints, improved blood circulation and increased metabolism.

Whole body vibration uses a vibrating platform on which exercises can be performed or a person can simply just stand on the plate. The vibration stimulates rhythmic contractions of the muscle which encourages blood circulation, allowing more blood to be pumped into the tiny capillaries. Therefore, the cells receive fuel faster and dispose of waste products faster.
Whole-body vibration is also said to cause a temporarily alteration of shape and appearance of cellulite. WBV machines flatten out fat cells located under the skin and will make the skin appear much smoother. It also helps stimulate collagen production.
