Washington, VA, January 16, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Phillip Golinsky, Dr. Kevin Naples, and the staff at RxWellness Spine & Health have recently announced they are offering a unique treatment program that combines the specialties of chiropractic care and active physical therapy rehabilitation. The goal of the physical therapy program is to correct the issues from underlying trauma obtained from auto accidents, sports injuries, and other physical damage in order to return patients to their normal functioning lives.
Residents living in the Reston, Sterling, Herndon, and Chantilly areas can utilize RxWellness Spine & Health’s new physical therapy program to recover more quickly and efficiently from injuries they incur. The RxWellness staff implement a wide range of customized treatment options to care for patients through the program’s three steps: relief care, corrective care, and maintenance care. The program is intended to treat and relive pain from a wide range of conditions including neck pain, back pain, sciatica, migraines, headaches, shoulder pain, hip pain, knee pain, dizziness, vertigo, fatigue, and more.
In the first phase of the program, relief care, patients have access to various treatment options to decrease pain and lessen injury symptoms. Treatment options include massage therapy, spinal decompression, intersegmental traction, and chiropractic adjustments. Relief care is important because it helps patients feel better and prepares them for active physical therapy in the next phase of treatment.
The second phase of the program is corrective care, where the active physical therapy and rehabilitation plan is implemented. The goal of this portion of the plan is to continue to eliminate injury symptoms and improve function by increasing strength, range of motion, balance, and proprioception. The patient undergoes an examination to uncover specific weaknesses and deficits contributing to the root cause of their symptoms. Information gleamed from the examination is used to create a customized physical therapy plan. In the corrective care phase, a patient can expect to receive chiropractic adjustments and perform active rehabilitation consisting of strength and endurance training, stretching, in addition to balance and proprioception exercises. Frequent re-examinations are performed in order to further challenge the patient and maximize functional abilities. Once established goals are met, the patient is ready for the last phase of the program–maintenance care.
The goal of the final phase of the program, maintenance care, is to continue functioning at an optimal level without symptoms and maintain the results the patient achieved in the prior two phases. Chiropractic care and massage are implemented in maintenance care. Treatment in this phase is less frequent and acts as a preventative measure, since our goal is for every patient to continue living a healthy and active lifestyle.
RxWellness is accepting new and current patients for this unique treatment program. In order to participate, patients need to provide updated insurance information and create an appointment to being care. Current patients can schedule an appointment for a physical performance test with Dr. Kevin Naples or Erin Hughes, PT. The new physical therapy program appointments differ from RxWellness’ usual schedule because each rehabilitation session is approximately one hour and designated three times per week–depending on each patient’s individual needs.
For an active physical therapy program, it is imperative to be consistent and on time. Time slots available for this program are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday from 10am–1pm and 3pm–6pm, and Tuesday and Friday from 10am–1pm. Appointment slots start hourly and are limited at this time, so booking now will guarantee availability of preferred time slots.
