Spinal Rehabilitation – What is it and how can it help me?

Spinal rehabilitation is indicated for patients who have developed physical de-conditioning of their muscular systems. Physical rehabilitation is successful by improving muscular endurance, balance, flexibility, coordination and strength through specific therapeutic activities. The goal of rehabilitation is to minimize pain and maximize function.

A variety of therapies are also used at the Myrtle Beach Spine Center, PA to speed the healing process and improve patient comfort. These include: electrical muscle stimulation, heat or ice, muscle relaxation techniques, spinal traction, and trigger point therapy. The physicians of the Spine Center custom design programs to strengthen, balance and rehab the spine.

Neuromuscular re-education is used in order to improve movement, balance, coordination, kinesthetic sense, posture and proprioception for sitting and/or standing activities. Tandem exercises, along with a postural challenges, may be utilized to evaluate stability.

Therapeutic exercise training is used with the purpose of increasing and maintaining strength, endurance, range of motion and flexibility. These activities incorporate one parameter of strength, endurance, range of motion, or flexibility.

Percussion Therapy can be used to increase the functional performance and range of motion. It can also decrease inflammation and muscle spasms in the involved areas.

3-D Vibration Acceleration Training creates instability in the body, which in turn, with each vibration, the body is forced to perform reflexive muscle actions, many times per second. The muscle contractions work in multiple dimensions which optimally “loads” the patient’s frame while minimizing high impact, high load, and high stress factors. Its benefits range from immediate improvement in blood circulation, to a variety of other measurable outcomes such as: increased muscle strength and flexibility, improved range of motion, decreased cellulite, increased bone mineral density, reduces pain/soreness and faster recovery.

Cervical Traction is performed to traction open the individual vertebrae and extremity segments to decrease spasms and increase mobility, circulation and nutrition to the involved joints.

**These therapies can be used in combination with chiropractic adjustments to provide the most effective treatment protocols.**

Treatments may consist of gentle spinal adjustments and rehabilitation that are tailored to your specific needs. Injured patients benefit from our state of the art rehabilitation clinic featuring the newest line of equipment. Your recovery will be more comprehensive and convenient because we offer multiple treatment options in the office.

Your treatment will be designed and supervised specifically by our doctors. In addition, our patients have access to nutritional counseling and wellness programs.

Spondylosis and Spondylolisthesis

Spondylosis

Spondylosis is referring to the osteoarthritic changes of multiple spinal vertebra at the level of the discs. If severe, it may cause pressure on nerve roots which then causes pain, parasthesia, or muscle weakness in the limbs. Use of this term indicates that the facet joints at the back of the vertebrae are not necessarily involved.

 

Spondylolisthesis
This describes the anterior (forward) displacement of a vertebra in relation to the vertebrae below. Spondylolithesis often contributes to spinal stenosis. Most commonly, its severity is graded using a lateral x-ray. The measurements of the distance from the posterior (back) edge of the superior (above) vertebral body to the posterior edge of the adjacent inferior (below) vertebral body is reported as a percentage of the total superior vertebral body length: Grade I is 0-25%, Grade II is 25-50%, Grade III is 50-75%, Grade IV is 75-100% . Fredrickson, et al. demonstrated that the spondylolytic defect is usually acquired between the ages of 6 and 16 years,
and that the slip often occurs shortly thereafter. Once the slip has occurred it rarely continues to progress. It may or may not be symptomatic, but it is significant because abnormal biomechanical stresses cause a greater likelihood of disc degeneration and associated osteoarthritic changes at this level.

Orthotics make great gifts for the upcoming holiday season!

Our custom orthotics are individually designed for your unique postural problems — not just problems with your feet. Correcting imbalances in your feet can help properly align your spine and pelvis. We can improve your overall health by supporting your foundation.

If you are considering custom orthotics, we can perform a foot scan using the 3D BodyView to show you how imbalances in the feet can lead to problems in the knees, hips, back and shoulders. This will provide an accurate assessment of how orthotics can help you.

3D BodyView™ Posture Scan is the latest in 3-dimensional imaging so patients can see how their feet can affect their entire body. A properly aligned body will have symmetrical feet, level knees, pelvis and shoulders. 3D BodyView provides clinical insight by showing: areas of deformity, levels of asymmetry, and abnormalities between the left and right foot. Following a foot scan, you will get a report showing pronation/stability index, a foot assessment, and a body assessment.

This device is the most accurate 3D technology in its class – this same technology is used for industrial inspection of jet engines and other critical precision equipment.

Why would you want to purchase custom orthotics?

Generic, off-the-shelf inserts risk worsening your symptoms because they address only general conditions, and with questionable results. Your feet are as unique as your fingerprints. Only Foot Levelers custom-made orthotics are built specifically to meet your individual feet, body and health needs.  The custom functional orthotics support all 3 arches of the foot, which make up the plantar vault. They’re custom-made by hand based on your unique feet, body and health profile. Just as no two bodies are alike, no two pairs of Foot Levelers custom orthotics are alike.

If you are interested in purchasing custom orthotic inserts, custom sandalthotics, or custom flip-flops as a gift this holiday season, Gift Certificates are available for purchase!
