The Goodbody way emphasizes "Structure and Function." Traditional therapy looks at the immediate "in your face" problem - This is short sighted as seen by the many people who have had therapy only to be "thrown" a pile of exercises that may or may not help with their underlying issue. Yes, some cases are straight forward, but those pesky, "on again - off again" (or constantly "on") issues usually call for a better understanding of the problem - Dr. Goodbody can help!
......Spine and Sport Therapy:
Looking to gain an edge to improve your game, or are you simply trying to get through your day without the pain?
Did you overdo it this past weekend? Not recovering as fast, or recovering at all? Get the help you are looking for!
Guiding you in optimizing function before a planned surgery and assisting you in the recovery after surgical intervention...its never too late to begin.
.........Economical Physical Therapy:
" My co-pay is HOW much each time?" As out of pocket costs continue to skyrocket, many people are looking for alternatives to traditional therapy whenever possible. Here is where Goodbody may deviate...sure, we offer hands-on care and stress its importance, but when you are at the point where exercise can be done at home or in the gym, why not? Think of Dr. Goodbody as your coach - here to guide, show, instruct, and drill-down to what and when to progress with your program. Weather you need a little or a lot of "hand-holding," Dr Godbody will evaluate, design and set you on your way. Think of it as DIY but with the guidance and coaching of a duly licensed physical therapist/chiropractor who will periodically makes modifications/recommendations to get you back to "you!"
TYPES OF CARE
Usually performed to help promote healing to get you ready for active care. Some forms of passive care involve the use of modalities such as electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and laser. In addition, Dr. Goodbody uses various techniques such as specific joint manipulations, mobilizations, stretching, and massage which too, are passive as you, yourself, are not physically stressing your body. Sometimes, this is ALL you need! Other times, its that first step to recovery.
OK, this is straight forward: This is the physical exercise that you actively engage in - the "home-work." It is what will help in both promoting better health and function as well as reducing the chances of re-injury. Exercises to improve posture, strength, endurance, stamina, flexibility, balance....its all here for you! What is best for you? Dr. Goodbody will help!
You either know what this term means, or you are curious...This is classic chiropractic lingo to describe the method(s) used to restore joint function, improve the function of the nervous system, help reduce pain and inflammation, and the list of applications goes ON AND ON! It is the "POP" or "SNAP" that some people refer to...other times, it may be performed with slower and less rigorous movements. No matter what method is used to achieve the results, the adjustment is the CORE treatment for many, many types of issues, and is scientifically proven to work.
