It is disturbing to us when a patient comes in for their first visit and we see the type of treatment they are receiving elsewhere. Often, patients are shown improper exercise form or are given the wrong exercises for their condition, which will not only prevent them from getting better, but can actually make their symptoms worse. A major problem in Chiropractic and Physical Therapy is there are numerous ways and philosophies to practice. Most patients and Medical Doctors are not aware of this. The Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Schools prepare us to practice at a basic level, but not be expert clinicians, similar to when a medical student finishes school before residency.
Unfortunately, many Chiropractors and Physical Therapists do not go through residency programs or take the necessary continuing education to be considered an expert. At USA Sports Therapy, we have all studied and been certified with advanced degrees and techniques such as, Chiropractic Sport Physician, Orthopedic Physical Therapy Specialist, Active Release Technique, Graston Technique, Cox Flexion-Distraction, Loomis System of Enzyme Therapy, Certified Strength and Conditioning, and Acupuncture. Our techniques, combined with our evidence-based approach, produces the best results in the least amount of time.
