Course of treatment at Spine and Sports Chiropractic Care of CT

 

Duration of Treatment
Various individual factors may influence one’s recovery and these are taken into account to determine the number of treatment visits necessary to completely resolve the complaint at hand. These factors include: the patient’s ultimate goals, current health status, severity and length of the injury, and compliance with in-office as well as home care.

The duration of treatment is ultimately up to the individual patient. For those who are mainly looking for relief from acute pain, perhaps only a few sessions may be needed. While for others, who prefer to enjoy the benefits of optimal health and pain-free function, a more intensive therapy and rehabilitation program may be required. A good rule-of-thumb that we employ is that after the first 2 to 3 treatment visits, the patient should be feeling some general improvement of their symptoms. After this, further benefit will be a cumulative process, similar to exercising regularly.

Communication with Other Healthcare Providers
In addition to the treatment and rehabilitation of your pain complaint, we effectively coordinate and manage your musculoskeletal care. If the doctor feels that a diagnostic procedure (X-rays, MRI, CT scan, ultrasound, etc.) or a medical specialist consultation or procedure is warranted for your condition, then a referral will be provided and all efforts will be made to expedite this process. We work closely with physicians in various specialties, including: family practice, internal medicine, physiatry, anesthesiology, orthopedics, neurology, and neurosurgery. To assure maximum continuity of care, timely and comprehensive reports are provided to the appropriate healthcare provider. We will also work with your primary care physician in order to provide you with the highest quality healthcare.
