Welcome to Symmetry Chiropractic and Physical Therapy - Duluth
Chiropractic care is the practice of using spinal alignment to alleviate a wide variety of physical ailments, including muscle strain, neck pain, chronic back pain, and more. This is accomplished by adjusting the position of the spinal column to its proper shape, providing a non-invasive solution for pain relief.
HOW CAN CHIROPRACTIC CARE HELP YOU?
Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.
Common Symptoms Chiropractic May Help...
WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
The Education: Most patients don't realize how much education chiropractors have. Chiropractors are held to some of the most intense educational standards of any health field. In fact their education standards are very comparable to that of a medical doctor. After completing a strong emphasis of basic sciences in college, chiropractors attend a four year chiropractic college. This means that chiropractors are primary care physicians. In other words, you do not have to have a referral to see a chiropractor.
Chiropractors treat patients using manipulation techniques, which are high velocity thrust techniques to mobilize joints. By doing this, the goal is to influence the small muscles surrounding the joints to create a better balance between the muscular pull on the joints. Thus realigning the joints into their highest functioning position which in turn reduces pain caused by these minor dislocations of the joint.
WHAT IS PHYSICAL THERAPY?
The Education: Many people do not know the more recent shift in the level of education that a Physical Therapist receives. A physical therapist no longer receives their masters of physical therapy, but rather attends graduate school for three years in order to earn their Doctorate of Physical Therapy. Just like seeing a Chiropractor, you do not need a referral to see a Doctor of Physical Therapy. In the state of Minnesota, direct access is allowed, which makes seeing a Doctor of Physical Therapy even easier than it has been before. For some insurances, a medical doctor's referral may be necessary, but we have no difficulty with helping you through this process to ensure your services will be covered by your insurance.
Physical therapists treat a wide variety of conditions, mostly related to orthopedic and musculoskeletal dysfunctions and impairments. Physical Therapists use many different styles of treatments, mostly consisting of different manual therapy techniques or providing certain exercises to their patients. These treatment techniques are targeted to improve the patients mobility, flexibility, strength, stability, endurance, performance, and ensure proper function and body mechanics of the desired motion, task, or activity. All treatments provided are individualized to each patient to meet their current functional level.
