06 Feb Why therapy doesn’t work!
If you're wondering why your pain hasn't been resolved even though you've seen physios, chiros, massage therapists and every other health professional in between, then read on because we've got the answer for you! Unfortunately, we see too many people who are hoping to be looked after, but have seen therapists who treat them with an adjustment or massage and leave them to fend for themselves with a piece of paper full of generic exercises. Sure, this approach may get you out of pain in the short-term, but people often find themselves back on the treatment table week after week with little to no long-term results.
At Brain and Body Health, we do things a little bit differently and believe that the missing piece towards a pain free body is a multidisciplinary approach. This means combining our areas of expertise to get you out of pain, and more importantly, keep you out of pain! The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT) is an international and interdisciplinary journal dedicated to the advancement of conservative health care principles and practices. A recent study published in JMPT found that chronic neck pain responded best to a combination of manipulation (adjustment), manual therapy, exercise, and stretching - highlighting the importance of approaching pain with multiple therapies all at once, as opposed to just one.
Our approach to health care combines our different areas of expertise from chiro (manipulation), massage (manual therapy), and occupational therapy (exercise and stretching) to bring you a one-stop-shop for all your rehab needs. Stop wasting your time and money on band-aid fixes and contact us today!
