Chiropractic and Physical Therapy in Denver

At Ideal Health Chiropractic, we take a holistic approach to the treatment plans we develop for our clients. That means we don’t just give you the same treatment we give everyone else. We take the time to thoroughly understand your individual needs before we develop the appropriate pain treatment plan for you. In addition to our traditional chiropractic services, we may integrate physical therapy modalities into your treatment plan. By combining chiropractic services and physical therapy in Denver, we’ll effectively reduce your pain, increase your mobility, lower your stress, and improve your health.

To give you the best results for your needs, our chiropractor may utilize one of the following physical therapies. Each one is different from the last and they all offer unique benefits for individuals just like you.

Ultrasound/Electric Stimulation Combo

Ultrasound therapy and Electric Stimulation (E-Stim) therapy are two of the most cutting-edge pain treatments that we offer at Ideal Health Chiropractic. Both of these therapeutic interventions can be coupled with your chiropractic adjustment for a more well-rounded and effective pain treatment. And both therapies help reduce muscle spasms, and decrease pain and inflammation.

Ultrasound therapy relies on sound-waves outside of human range of hearing to stimulate muscle tissues. The therapy is delivered directly through the skin after it is coated with a light gel to reduce friction. A handheld instrument is then run over the affected areas as it sends out sound-waves to drive out inflammation from the muscles.

Similar to Ultrasound therapy, E-Stim fires low-frequency electrical currents directly into your areas of muscular stress. The currents then stimulate healing chemical processes in the large nerve fibers of your body, which decreases the pain signals being delivered by the smaller nerve tissues.

Both therapies can be implemented simultaneously with your chiropractic care, for more effective and longer lasting pain relief.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping has been utilized as an effective form of physical therapy for hundreds and hundreds of years. This ancient healing technique is essentially what it sounds like: the practice involves the placement of small suction cups on the skin for therapeutic benefits. The process may involve the use of a flammable substance inside the cup, to create greater suction.

The suction causes the blood vessels in your affected skin areas to expand, thus increasing blood flow to the area. This process, in turn, helps detoxify your body and boost your healing capabilities in the affected area, thanks to the increased blood flow. At the end of the day, cupping can help provide relief from your pain and inflammation.

Handheld Massagers

In our wide array of resources for pain treatments and pain management, we will additionally utilize handheld massagers for many of our clients. Our hands can only provide so much pain relief, so these tools help us achieve the results you need in a more targeted approach.

Foam Rollers

To work out those muscular knots and alleviate muscle soreness, we will additionally leverage foam rollers in our PT modalities. In fact, all patients can benefit from a few minutes on the foam roller too, as it can help loosen up your joints and muscles for a more effective pain treatment.

Other Therapeutic Exercises

To top off all of these terrific PT modalities, we can further your improve your pain treatment with additional therapeutic interventions. These exercises are usually customized to the individual while meeting face-to-face. We would like to note though that we can additionally improve your well-being by offering:

  • Custom Orthotics
  • Stretching Therapy
  • And much more!
