When people experience pain, they often focus their treatments on the soft tissues only without addressing the bones underneath. Although this approach may provide short-term relief, the problem usually returns. Dr. Clemens treats the musculoskeletal system as a whole, combining physical therapy with other treatments that address the bones. The goal of treatment is to restore health and balance to the patient’s entire body.
Dr. Clemens knows that every patient is different, and she customizes all treatment plans to meet the needs of each individual.
Physical therapy poses very few risks when it’s used properly. Dr. Clemens is an experienced chiropractor and she always tailors physical therapy programs to the patient’s individual needs and abilities. If you feel any pain or experience other problems during or after physical therapy sessions, inform Dr. Clemens immediately.
