What To Expect
When you visit us for Chiropractic care and therapy, Philadelphia Chiropractor Dr. Stuart Himmelstein and his staff will attempt to determine the exact cause of your symptoms through a comprehensive examination. Their next focus will be on properly diagnosing you to determine and discuss the best and most comprensive treatment plan going forward.
There are three “phases” of treatment:
Inital Phase – Comprehensive and Individualized Treatment Plan
After careful and thorough assessment of your condition and identifying the source of your pain, Dr. Himmelstein will put together a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan that is designed to address your specific condition and requirements for healing and pain relief
Second Phase – Chiropractic Adjustments
Chiropractic adjustments relieve pressure on the nervous system, promote spinal health and improve overall health. These adjustments are especially beneficial for providing pain relief and managing chronic pain caused by herniated discs or other spinal misalignment.
Third Phase – Therapeutic Exercises
In addition to Chiropractic manipulation or adjustment, Dr. Himmelstein often recommends a course of therapeutic exercises and physiotherapy treatments to help address problems with muscles and other soft tissues so that they can be retrained and reconditioned to properly support good posture and promote complete healing and recovery from pain. To address ruptured or herniated discs, he may recommend a series of spinal decompression treatments.
