Prenatal Chiropractic Care | Elite Spine & Sports Care

It’s not uncommon for pregnancy to bring on a slew of aches and pains. After all, this life-changing event can change a body in numerous ways. A common issue is nerve stress. Prenatal Chiropractic care focuses on the health of the spinal column. This includes individual discs as well as nerves. Many pregnant women need relief from spinal nerve pain. Elite Spine and Sports Care’s chiropractors are well versed in Prenatal Chiropractic Care!

Why Prenatal Chiropractic Care?

Pregnancy can bring extra weight to a woman’s body which can create stress on the skeletal system. Changes can occur in the pelvic area for a pregnant woman. The lower back can become curved as extra weight up front pulls it forward. In addition, posture can be affected as a body compensates for the changes that are occurring. Our Northern New Jersey physical therapists and chiropractors are well versed in helping with pregnancy-induced pain while also offering access to a number of prenatal and postnatal exercises designed to help you through this time.

Our team strives to help our patients address their pain, improve their posture, strengthen their core, and improve flexibility. Positive side effects of chiropractic care during pregnancy include an improved mood, increased nutrient delivery to the baby, a decrease in pain, and the maintaining of a healthy weight. If you are pregnant and looking for a Northern NJ prenatal chiropractor look no further than Elite Spine and Sports Care!

Symptoms Of Rotator Cuff Injuries

When addressed in a timely manner successful treatment can begin and the healing process can get underway.

Post Operation Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation

The Importance Of Post-Operation Physical Therapy

Post operation physical therapy and rehabilitation are critical to recovery success. Surgery is used to make repairs to parts of the body. With those repairs, comes the need to readjust and retrain your body. The opportunity to get healthy and return to action is one that takes time, dedication, and hard work. Athletes who want to return to competition or just regular people who simply want to be active have a big role to play on the road to recovery. Passaic County physical therapy specialists at Elite Spine and Sports Care are dedicated to getting you back in action after your surgery!

When does post-operation physical therapy start?

Typically pretty quickly. This can be as little as a few hours to a few days after surgery. Of course, this is dependant on your specific injury and surgery. For instance: Immediately after waking up from a knee replacement surgery, you will be transferred to a qualified rehabilitation center to begin your recovery, whereas, after surgery on a broken bone, you may be required to keep it immobilized. This will push the rehabilitation phase forward a few weeks.

Is there anything you can do to prepare for post operation physical therapy?

Pre-op physical therapy is certainly beneficial. Being in shape before surgery can dictate not only the success of the surgery itself but the recovery. Starting rehabilitation after a surgery is far easier if you were in optimal condition prior to the surgery. Check with your doctor to see if any Pre-Operative Physical Therapy is suggested. See our Pre-Operation page to learn more

What can you expect from post operation physical therapy and rehabilitation?

Your NJ physical therapist will design a comprehensive rehabilitation protocol. This plan is individually designed to focus on the area where the surgery occurred. This includes promoting healing, reducing swelling, and addressing pain while focusing on joint mobility, flexibility, and increasing strength. The program that is in place will adjust as you recuperate. Initial physical therapy and rehabilitation will focus on healing and preparing for the hard work ahead.

You play a big role in your recovery!

Focus and determination play a large role in your recovery. This means committing to the plan that your physical therapist puts in place. Regaining strength and mobility is largely up to you. Understanding how far you can push yourself and how much you need to do is essential. If you commit to your program there is no reason you cannot be back in action and ready to pursue an active lifestyle when your body is ready!

Treating Hip Sprains & Strains With Physical Therapy

Hip sprain or strain injuries can be excruciating, affecting far more than just the affected region.  A severe hip strain makes walking hard and standing up painful.  Pinpointing the area of the injury and focusing on healing is essential to getting back on track.  In addition, it can be invaluable to work with a Passaic County physical therapist to strengthen the muscles and ligaments surrounding the hip through hip sprain physical therapy.

The leg is very much in tune with the hip joint and paying attention to both the strength and flexibility of the ligaments and muscles in the upper thigh, including the hip flexors, quads, hamstring muscles and glutes is essential.  Keeping your hip flexible and your glutes strong can help you protect your labrum and avoid sprains and strains that can sideline you from your favorite sport or activity. This can all be stretched and strengthened with hip sprain physical therapy.

The labrum is the soft flexible tissue ring that surrounds your hip joint, the socket cradling the ball at the top of your femur, keeping it in place. This invaluable joint is vulnerable to injuries caused by direct impact or repetitive movements like yoga, ballet, or other activity.  Understanding your body’s physical limitations is an important part of keeping your labrum safe and this joint free from pain.  Passaic County physical therapy can help a body heal and prepare to avoid future injuries.

The physical therapists at Elite Spine and Sports Care will ensure that each individual is aware of his limitations when it comes to the mobility of his hip joints and hip sprain physical therapy.  In addition our exercises will offer work on proper alignment, stretching, and strengthening.  These exercises will be implemented to get your body back on track after a hip sprain or strain as well as to help you understand how to avoid future injuries.

Contact Elite Spine and Sports Care of Totowa NJ offers an approach based on the functional model and the dynamic use of manual medicine into physical therapy and rehabilitation. We believe that optimal health and performance can be attained through proper stability by enabling correct function via mobility of joints and corresponding muscles.

Headache Pain from Poor Posture

All too often a CAT scan is ordered to pinpoint the problem with no clear diagnosis.  There are many causes for headaches, including physical activity, posture, hormones, and sleeping patterns.  When it comes to posture it is important to be aware of your body.  Being hunched over can inhibit blood flow, for example, cramping muscles and leading to headaches that can range from tolerable to completely intolerable.
