Working Together

doctor examining patientChiropractic and physiotherapy work hand-in-hand at Goyke Health Center to give you the best results and help speed your healing. Whereas chiropractic focuses on the joints, physiotherapy addresses the muscles and soft tissues surrounding and supporting the joints.

If we correct the restriction in the joint but don’t attend to the muscles, the underlying stiffness will remain and soon the joint will be restricted again. The more we can keep things loose and flexible, the better your body can function. That’s where physiotherapy comes in.

Our Modalities

The term “physiotherapy” encompasses all of the modalities we employ. Each of the modalities has specific uses and benefits, but one thing they all have in common is that they help increase blood flow to the area we’re working on. Increased blood flow means more oxygen and more nutrients are delivered to the tissues, helping to repair them. We incorporate the following modalities into your care:

  • Soft tissue work – works out the knots and helps muscles relax
  • Ultrasound – decreases inflammation and breaks up scar tissue
  • Deep heat – alleviates spasm and helps muscles relax
  • Interferential current – decreases pain and inflammation

We also use an intersegmental traction table—we call it the “vibrating roller table.” This increases joint motion in the spine while lengthening the muscles and ligaments, improves flexibility and increases blood flow throughout the spine. Dr. Goyke calls it a “secondary adjustment” that helps work out smaller issues.

Physiotherapy can be used before or after chiropractic adjustments. If used before an adjustment, it helps the muscles relax so that adjusting the joints is easier. We may also use some modalities after an adjustment to increase the blood and oxygen flow to the areas we’ve adjusted to speed healing.
