At Rivercrest, we teach our patients how to perform a self care plan that has been designed for them and their goals/needs. This plan may include strengthening exercises, stretches, and techniques for self masssage to help correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care, physical therapy, and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches instructed from our experienced chiropractors or physical therapist will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.

Physiotherapies are used to decreased pain, muscle tension, and inflammation.

Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles.

What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care?
