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

Do I need to see a physician before I can receive physiotherapy?

  • Yes. All Physiotherapy patients are prescribed treatment from their physician prior to their therapy being scheduled.

What is the difference between chiropractor and a physiotherapists?

  • Our physicians perform a comprehensive analysis of range of motion, including identifying the joints involved, tissue limitations, muscular imbalances and structural pathologies. A chiropractor will treat the spine and are able to order special tests like X-rays, MRIs and blood tests.

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.

You will feel and see the effects of WBV Machines training almost immediately!

WBV HAS BEEN KNOWN TO:

  • Burn fat and help to reshape the body, especially in the hip, waist and abdomen
  • Tone and build muscle
  • Increase bone mineral density and prevent Osteoporosis
  • Tighten the skin
  • Decrease the appearance of cellulite

We've been nominated for Best of Long Island 2018 & 2019!

"I only have good things to say about Balance Chiropractic! I was originally so terrified of chiropractic care but I felt very safe and comfortable here and am so glad I became a patient. I truly believe it helped me conceive my daughter and stay comfortable and healthy throughout my pregnance and after. I love how relaxing and peaceful the office and treatment rooms are. Dr. Deb and Dr. Paul are wonderful! They are so caring and supportive! We moved about an hour away and I still try and go when I can because it's worth the drive!"

Mary L.

"Last 2 weeks of December 2017 I was introduced to Balance Chiropractic. I was in a lot of pain in my neck both sides. As I met Dr. Paul he sat down with me and explained to me the different therapy that I may need for my pain. As the weeks went on the pain started to decrease from my neck."

Robert M.

"I have been going to Balance for a little over a month now and I've seen a major improvement in my posture as well as a decrease in my shoulder pain. Dr. Paul is extremely thorough and made sure I completely understood the treatment plan he wanted to implement."

James H.

"I have had vertigo for over 6 1/2 weeks. I saw ENTs, GPS and tried to get an appointment with several neurologists. One day last week I saw a sign that said Balance Chiropractic and Wellness Center. I walked in very dizzy and sick to my stomach. I was able to get an immediate appointment with Dr. Beberman...MY MIRACLE!!!"

Shelia B.

"Let me start out by saying that about a year ago I had been seeing a different chiropractor for months without any pain relief. Dr. Deb Genin is fantastic. She created a treatment plan and reviewed my insurance to map out my coverage. For once, I am optimistic about the prospect of improving my posture, spine health and overall quality of life."

Amanda S.

"After several months of care at Balance Chiropractic the improvement has been so helpful. Being a pregnant patient, Dr. Paul and Dr. Deb have been thorough yet cautious with my care, always asking and adjusting their method if need be. Their approach has been holistic and I have been so grateful for the personal help and attention during my pregnancy."

Alexis N.

"Life changing! I was getting headaches every single day. My headaches are extremely infrequent now and under much better control. I struggled with back and neck pain for years and it is finally feeling so much better now. It's an amazing thing to finally feel better! Everyone at Balance Chiropractic is wonderful!!"

Jennifer G.

"I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Balance Chiropractic and Wellness has truly changed my life. I have gone from having 20-30 (yes really) migraines a month since the age of 12 to maybe 1-2 depending on weather activity. Since going to Balance Chiropractic I have become a new person."
