Chiropractic care at Cole Pain Therapy Group is comprehensive care focused on helping people achieve their health goals. Many people across the Memphis area have realized the value of chiropractic care as a first-line therapy for a variety of common pain conditions, especially headache, neck pain, and back pain. Additionally, our team of doctors have deep experience with evaluating and treating complicated pain problems, frequently in coordination with other health specialties. Chiropractic care often times involves hands-on, manual chiropractic adjustments of the spine and joints. Yet, we have a variety of treatment options to ensure that every person gets the right treatment for the right diagnosis.
Chiropractic care is pain relief without additional drugs or surgery.
Prescription drugs and invasive surgery are the most expensive treatment options. We believe that most people prefer a far less costly and far more effective approach to their healthcare. We also believe in the adage that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” With that in mind, we use our considerable training and expertise to help people overcome pain and lost function from:
- Acute and chronic low back pain.
- Neck pain, whiplash injuries
- Sports/ musculoskeletal injuries
- Spinal Disc injuries and painful scoliosis
- Arthritis and joint pain
- Shoulder, hip, leg, and arm pain
- TMJ pain
- Many other nerve, muscle, and joint pain conditions
For the doctors of Cole Pain Therapy Group, achieving success means working within the larger medical community to ensure the best possible treatment outcomes. We coordinate necessary care with primary-care physicians, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, pain specialist, and other health professionals. We focus on evidence-based protocols, using proven treatments for maximum effect (such as those found at ClinicalCompass.org). At Cole Pain Therapy Group, modern chiropractic care means putting the needs of the patient first.
Far more effective rehabilitation. Far less of your time.
Our structured chiropractic care plans are far more effective because of our evidence-based protocols to correct body movement patterns while reducing pain. Most injuries cause scar tissue, which alters your body’s natural movement patterns and makes it less efficient. Each altered movement pattern leads to another until pain or movement dysfunction occurs. Yet, a focused evaluation answers not only what is causing the pain, but also why it keeps occurring in the first place.
Also, our neuromuscular rehabilitation programs helps free restricted movement and retrains your muscles to move correctly throughout their normal range of motion. Neuromuscular rehab combines soft tissue therapies, chiropractic adjustments, massage, functional dry needling, and/or corrective movement techniques with specific strengthening exercises to correct the true source of muscle and joint pain.
Advanced chiropractic care by your team of doctors
Our team of doctors has specialized, postdoctoral training in neurology, sports medicine, orthopedics, rehabilitation, acupuncture, and pain management. We are a unique group of chiropractic physicians committed to helping you feel and function better than you have in years… for life. You’ll gain strength, greater freedom of movement, and a unique opportunity to achieve your rehab goal more quickly. In fact, most of our patients get better and complete their therapy without needing ongoing, continual visits without results. Effective chiropractic care saves both time and money.
Chiropractic care involves a wide variety of treatments and techniques
Comprehensive chiropractic care begins with an expert evaluation and diagnosis. Then your doctor of chiropractic will discuss your options with you, potentially recommending a course of treatment that may involve any combination of the following:
Advanced spinal manipulation and stabilization – These forms of hands-on, chiropractic adjustments are designed to balance spine motion and strengthen muscle that support your spine and prevent pain. Chiropractic adjustments and other types of chiropractic manual therapies are scientifically shown to be the most effective treatments for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and a variety of other spine disorders.
Functional medicine – Condition-specific dietary plans, key nutritional supplementation, and lifestyle modification are crucial interventions for functional medicine. The focus here is not simply to modify symptoms. We target specific metabolic dysfunctions that result in illness. The “one disease cured by one drug” philosophy has not worked well for degenerative diseases (high blood sugar, high cholesterol, obesity, arthritis, etc.). Our philosophy is that everyone deserves the tools to become healthier in a holistic, comprehensive way.
Massage and manual therapy – Our doctors prescribe manual therapy to address posture problems, stiffness, and myofascial pain. Our team of doctors and therapists coordinate to ensure that patients receive expert manual care at the right frequency. Massage therapy at Cole Pain Therapy Group is a great way to relieve tension, improve athletic recovery, and improve your overall wellness.
Electrical stimulation and ultrasound – These modalities are helpful for alleviating pain secondary to inflammation. Our doctors have designed specific protocols of e-stim and ultrasound application to facilitate various phases of recovery from pain or injury. Specifically, these chiropractic therapies reduce muscle spasm, joint swelling, and aid in quicker pain reduction. Depending on the specific application, the addition of ice or heat reduces the pain for greater effect.
Therapeutic exercise – Most patients benefit from using some form of specific training to build flexibility, strength, and stability. Either performed at our office or as a home exercise program, the right corrective exercise strategy will strengthen the “weak link,” preventing future problems. This chiropractic rehabilitation can help patients take it to the next level of physical durability for a more active life.
Acupuncture – Acupuncture is more than a treatment, but rather an entire system of healthcare. Dr. Holly Tucker is trained as both an acupuncturist and chiropractic physician, allowing for comprehensive and evidence-based acupuncture care for a variety of nerve, muscle, and joint problems. This style of acupuncture in a modern, professional environment assists many who may be suffering from chronic pain, neuropathy, digestive disorders, and pregnancy-related pains.
Functional dry needling – Performed in conjunction with other manual and rehabilitative therapies, dry needling is an excellent way to improve range of motion and decrease muscle or tendon pain. It is a skillful therapy that uses an ultra-thin needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying muscular trigger points for treatment of pain and movement problems. The goals of “functional” dry needling is to change the dysfunctional movement pattern and not merely chase the pain.
Avoid the high cost of illness.
It is much more expensive to treat an illness than it is to prevent one. That’s why preventive care is critical to your future good health and your financial peace of mind. When movement-related aches and pains prevent you from pursuing a healthy lifestyle, you ultimately end up conceding your life to a pain problem. Chiropractic care at Cole Pain Therapy group, helps you achieve your health goals in a natural way. Ultimately, we can help you get healthy, stay healthy, and enjoy a better life unrestricted by pain. And we can help you avoid the high cost of illness and chronic injury care.
