How Our Doctors Approach Extremity Injuries in Estero, FL

Each patient we treat at our Estero, FL, location receives a personalized treatment plan. This plan considers:

  • Their diagnosis
  • Their medical needs
  • Whether they need pain management
  • Their current condition and health history
  • Their goals
  • Their activity level

During your initial visit with our doctor, we will assess and diagnose your extremity injury. We order medical imaging, such as X-rays, and lab testing. This allows us to properly develop a treatment plan for you. Your plan will likely include several parts:

Prescribed Treatments for Extremity Injuries in Our Estero, Florida, Office

Since each patient has unique injuries and requires a personalized treatment plan, there is no way to explain what your care will entail before your intake appointment with our doctor. However, there are some types of treatments we commonly use for patients with extremity injuries at our Estero, FL, location. This includes:

Chiropractic Adjustments and Extremity Manipulation

Extremity manipulation is a specific type of chiropractic adjustment that ensures the joints are properly aligned and in good working order. In addition, we may prescribe other hands-on therapies that address injuries in the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other soft tissues. These services help our patients heal and recover from their extremity injuries.

Physical Therapy Exercises

Our personalized plans do not only address the injury but also help our patients rehabilitate and fully recover from it. Our patients generally undergo physical therapy that includes a range of strength and stretching exercises.

The types of therapies prescribed as a part of your personalized plan will depend greatly on your injuries, physical health, and the activities you enjoy. Through physical therapy, we aim to help you rebuild strength, improve flexibility, and reduce the risk of reinjury. We can also teach you to exercise safely and engage in your favorite sports or activities safely.

Complementary Therapy

Complementary therapies do not directly address your injuries, but they allow us to encourage healing and help manage symptoms without pharmaceuticals. Depending on the therapy prescribed, we may be able to offer pain relief, reduced inflammation, improved circulation, and a reduced healing time.

Some of the complementary therapies prescribed and performed at our office include:

  • Massage
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Infrared light therapy
  • Electrical muscle stimulation (E-STIM) therapy
