At Chiropractic Clinic Houston, we offer the services of physicians specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. PM&R is the branch of medicine emphasizing the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders involving nerves, muscles, bones and the brain that cause impairment. Such disorders span a broad spectrum, from complicated multiple accident-related traumas – to stroke – to injury prevention for athletes.
Our chiropractors collaborate with PM&R physicians to provide patients an unsurpassed level of comprehensive health care. We embrace a holistic and integrative approach in healing because we believe that patients experience superior results when they can benefit from multiple healing modalities. That is why we offer the best in comprehensive pain management, chiropractic care, sports medicine, physical therapy, and muscle therapies to our patients. Your medical team may also include other physicians and health professionals, such as neurologists and physical therapists.
Our rehabilitation physicians first carefully diagnose the source of the problem. Then they design an appropriate treatment plan, with the objective of helping patients regain as much functionality as possible regardless of age. Though treatment begins with the physician’s medical and chiropractic team, long-term success is always dependent on your active participation as a patient.
Our overriding objective is to help the person put their life back together again without surgery. We first focus on healing injuries or illnesses that affect how you move, with the aim of enhancing mobility and performance. However, our treatment extends beyond the parts of the body that are affected by injury or disease to developing a comprehensive program for improving all aspects of a person’s life – medically, socially, emotionally, and vocationally.
Among the common conditions our PM&R physicians treat are spinal cord injury, sports injury, stroke, amputation, musculoskeletal pain syndromes such as back pain, fibromyalgia, and traumatic brain injury. We also provide cardiopulmonary rehabilitation for those with heart or lung disease. Finally we achieve chronic pain management through a multidisciplinary approach involving physical therapists, occupational therapists, exercise therapists, psychologists, and interventional procedures when indicated.
