A chiropractic adjustment (aka manipulation or mobilization) is a powerful tool that can decrease pain, increase healing and promote an overall increase in health and performance. Often a chiropractic adjustment is thought to just treat back pain, but it can be applied to any joint in the body. Improper joint movement will interfere with the overall movement quality of the body and can lead to pain and/or tissue damage. Chiropractic adjustments safely and effectively restore motion to restricted joints and normalize the movement of the body as a whole.
These are treatment protocols designed to treat conditions dealing with muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments, and other connective tissues. When muscles, or other tissues, are overstressed or injured, our bodies use scar tissue as a patch repair. This is a natural part of the healing process, however if the cause of the injury is not alleviated properly the muscle will accumulate too much scar tissue and then becomes a problem.
Therapeutic Rehabilitation/Corrective Exercises
Any mechanical, functional or structural issue, such as poor posture, lack of flexibility, joint dysfunction, decreased strength, endurance, stability, or faulty movement patterns should and will be addressed in order to prevent the issues from progressing. Based on the examination findings, we will design a corrective exercise or rehabilitation routine geared towards your specific needs. Once your body is balanced, and more stable, an entire body approach to strengthening and stabilizing key areas will be done routinely. This is to treat and prevent poor joint function. Poor joint function will disrupt your ability to move — putting you at greater risk for injury, chronic muscle pain, and joint pain.
DOT Physical Examinations
For many commercial motor vehicle operators, a DOT Medical Examination is required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to certify that they are healthy enough to work safely. Dr. Don Davis is a DOT Certified Medical Examiner meaning he has gone through the training and is certified to perform these exams.
