Physical Rehabilitation and Chiropractic

At Dynamic Rehab and Spine we provide both Physical Rehabilitation and  Chiropractic. We recognize joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments all  work together, get injured together and therefore must be treated  together. We don’t just massage muscles or slap electric stim on you and call it therapy. We use techniques such as Electrical Muscle  Stimulation, Ultrasound, Active Release, Graston and Myofascial Release to passively treat soft tissue injuries while providing gentle Chiropractic treatments. We also have our personal trainers help patients perform therapeutic exercises and actively treat muscles and joints to  quickly get you back to health.






We Use Both

Dynamic Rehab and Spine uses both. Why? Because research has proven the  combination of both treatments together quickens recovery and costs  less. Many Chiropractors practice what we call the rack-em and crack-em  method of Chiropractic.

Managing your Soft Tissue Injury
Soft tissue injuries are commonly categorized depending on the time frame since injury and the healing processes that are occurring at that time.

Acute - Protection Phase

A soft tissue injury is termed as acute from the initial time of injury and while the pain, bleeding and swelling is at its worst. Your body's aim at this point is to protect your injury from further damage. The usual time frame for your acute symptoms to settle is two to four days post-injury, but this can vary depending on how you treat your injury.

Sub-Acute - Repair Phase

A soft tissue injury is termed as sub-acute when the initial PhysicalTherapyacute phase makes a transition to repairing the injured tissues. This phase commonly lasts up to six weeks post-injury when your body is bust laying down new soft tissue and reducing the need to protect your injury as the new scar tissue etc begins to mature and strengthen.

Late Stage - Remodelling Phase

Your body does not magically just stop tissue healing at six week post-injury. Healing is a continuum. At six weeks post-soft tissue injury your healing tissue is reasonably mature but as you stretch, strength and stress your new scar tissue it often finds that it is not strong enough to cope with your increasing physical demand.

When your body detects that a repaired structure is still SoftTissueImage1weaker that necessary, it will automatically stimulate additional new tissue to help strengthen and support the healing tissue until it meets the demands of your normal exercise or physical function.

The period between six weeks and three months post-injury is commonly referred to as the remodelling phase.

Chronic Phase - Ongoing Repair and Remodelling

Beyond three months is referred to as the chronic phase and probably refers mainly to pain that lasts more than 3 months. However, your soft tissue is constantly being injured by your daily activities and workout, only to magically repair and remodel the tissue to meet your specific exercise demands.
