Conditions That Physiologic Therapeutic Help in Wausau WI

Physiologic therapeutic helps restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of patients suffering from injuries or disease. Physiologic therapeutic or "medically directed rehab" helps restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health. Our Wausau patients include accident victims and individuals with disabling conditions such as low-back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fractures, head injuries, and cerebral palsy.

Treatment often includes exercise; especially for patients who have been immobilized or who lack flexibility, strength, or endurance. Physiologic therapeutic helps encourage patients to use their muscles to increase their flexibility and range of motion. More advanced exercises focus on improving strength, balance, coordination, and endurance. The goal is to improve how an individual functions at work and at home.

Physiologic therapeutic also helps treat a wide range of disorders; such as pediatrics, geriatrics, orthopedics, sports medicine, neurology, and cardiopulmonary physiologic therapeutic.


FAQ's About PHYSIOLOGIC THERAPEUTIC THERAPy

Do I need to see a physician before I can receive physiologic therapeutic therapy?

  • Yes. All physiologic therapeutic patients are prescribed treatment from their physician prior to their therapy being scheduled.

What is the difference between chiropractor and a physical therapist?

  • Our physicians perform a comprehensive analysis of range of motion, including identifying the joints involved, tissue limitations, muscular imbalances and structural pathologies. A chiropractor will treat the spine and are able to order special tests like X-rays, MRIs and blood tests.

How PHYSIOLOGIC THERAPEUTIC THERAPY Works

Bautch Chiropractic of Wausau was designed to provide an ideal environment for healing your body, through chiropractic, massage or physiologic therapeutic. When you arrive at Integrative, our physicians will take a thorough history, and evaluation of the entire body including posture and biomechanics, range of motion and joint mobility to find out the cause of pain or disability. You will then discuss treatment options and goals, so that we can customize a treatment plan catered to you.

Each session will last roughly one hour. The frequency of visits and the length of treatment is determined by the physician who prescribed the treatment.

The results are typically a result of the patient’s commitment. When the patient follows the plan, does their exercises as often as suggested and using the proper techniques, the treatment is typically very successful.


Before Your Appointment

It is a good idea to arrive at your physiologic therapeutic appointment properly dressed. It is best that you wear snug comfortable clothing that doesn't restrict your movement. It is also a good idea to bring your insurance card, a form of identification, the prescription that your physician gave you, and if needed, your co-pay.


Types of PHYSIOLOGIC THERAPEUTIC THERAPIES We Offer

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical Muscle Stimulation is an exceptional way to help the body in the healing process. This is accomplished by sending a very small electrical current into the affected soft tissue injury or muscle spasm. The therapy utilizes this current in an effort to help reduce swelling and release trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. It does this by helping the body to release natural relievers of pain often referred to as endorphins.

This is a great therapy if there is a spasm in a back or neck muscle. It works well in relaxing the muscle and allowing it to return to its normal state rather quickly. Short therapy sessions are excellent at facilitating healing from acute and chronic pain.

Interferential Electro-Therapy

Inferential Electro-Therapy is an excellent method of helping the body deal with spasms, sprains, and issues related to soft tissues. This therapy accomplishes this with a very low simulated frequency that is put on the soft tissue. The feeling of this therapy is very light and most patients feel very comfortable during the treatment.

In addition to this therapy simulating the body's natural healing method by helping it to produce natural pain killing endorphins, it also helps with the release of these strains, spasms and soft tissue issues.
