Physical Modalities

At Baker Chiropractic, we have been sharing the benefits of physical modalities with Morganton residents for many years. When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to identify the root cause of your pain and immobility. Once the source of your discomfort has been determined, we will create a plan of physical modalities to relieve your pain, restore your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural healing process.

Why Choose Physical Modalities to Relieve Pain?

Several physical modalities can be used to relieve your pain and prevent it from returning. Physical modalities are simply tools that are used to help with the pain. When tissues and muscles are treated with thermal or heat care, it can help to reduce inflammation in the affected area. A heating pad can be a great source of thermal care to help loosen muscles. Recommended physical modalities will depend on the cause, location, and severity of your pain.

What is TENS?

Another option your chiropractor might choose is electrical stimulation such as Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulations (TENS). This method can relieve your pain by stimulating your pain receptors. This chiropractic method can be very useful to those that have had no success with other physical modalities.

Do Cold Packs and Hot Packs Still Work?

Cold packs and hot packs still work and are great tools. Even though they have been around for years, they are tried and true. When you experience a heavy lifting injury or something similar, hot and cold therapy can deliver effective muscle and soft tissue pain relief. If you've experienced a strain or a sprain, you will want our chiropractor to assess your damage before creating a treatment plan tailored to your needs.

How Electrical Stimulation Works

Electrical stimulation is another physical modality that allows our chiropractor to target damaged areas of the musculoskeletal system. This method helps the muscle fibers to contract, relieving your pain and restoring your range of motion. Our Morganton chiropractor is going to know exactly which method will work best to relieve your pain.
