How Physiotherapy Works

Duluth Injury & Rehab Center of Duluth GA was designed to provide an ideal environment for healing your body, through chiropractic, massage or physiotherapy. When you arrive at Integrative, our physicians will take a thorough history, and evaluation of the entire body including posture and biomechanics, range of motion and joint mobility to find out the cause of pain or disability. You will then discuss treatment options and goals, so that we can customize a treatment plan catered to you.

The results are typically a result of the patient’s commitment. When the patient follows the plan, does their exercises as often as suggested and using the proper techniques, the treatment is typically very successful.


Before Your Appointment

It is a good idea to arrive at your physiotherapy appointment properly dressed. It is best that you wear snug comfortable clothing that doesn't restrict your movement. It is also a good idea to bring your insurance card, a form of identification, the prescription that your physician gave you, and if needed, your co-pay.


Types of Physical Therapy We Offer

  • Electro-Muscle Stimulation: This is a special form of electrical current that is administered at the site of injury, especially muscles, for the blocking of pain. It is recommended in cases in which pain is accompanied by swelling, inflammation and muscle spasms.
  • Intersegmental Traction: This therapy enhances passive motion to the spine and intervertebral disc for the purpose of stretching spinal joints and increasing mobility. Since disc have a poor blood supply, they get nutrients from the circulation of fluids surrounding the spinal joints. Fixations prevent this natural circulation and can lead to disc thinning and degeneration.  This therapy helps increase and restore motion to the spine.
  • Trigger Point Therapy: Trigger points are areas within the muscles that are tight and tender to the touch. This interferes with normal muscle function by restricting normal motion, weakens the muscle and may refer pain to other parts of the body. Using the hands, we can locate tight and tender trigger points or nodules of muscle fibers. Our office uses a vibracussor to gently massage the area to promote normal range of motion and promote faster healing.
  • Therapeutic Ultrasound: This therapy uses high-frequency sound waves administered in the area of soft tissue injury. Sound vibrations as fast as a million times per second, penetrate tissues deep in the body, creating a heat response. These vibrations and heat help break down and disperse unhealthy calcium and other hard tissue accumulations.
  • Whole Body Vibration Therapy: This therapy uses a platform that patients stand on while performing certain exercises to increase strength, range of motion and balance. Most sessions last between five to ten minutes depending on the number of areas being exercised and the severity of the injury or condition being monitored. Benefits include: Reduced low back pain, increased flexibility, Improved posture, healthier breathing and increased strength and muscle tone.
