Our Services At Rush Chiropractic Center
At Rush Chiropractic Center we provide a variety musculoskeletal techniques that will get you out of pain and back to living pain free. After your initial consultation, Dr. Rush will work with you using his unique 3-phase plan to get you out of pain and back to performing at your highest level.
Proprietary 3-Phase Method
– Phase 1: Acute Phase –
This phase is all about getting you out of pain. Trying to train or compete when you are in pain can not only lead to further injury, but it can have a negative impact on the way you move. If you have to change the way you function to perform, you will without a doubt, perform at a lower level. So, the first step is getting you out of pain so that you can move the correct way.
There are 3 scenarios that lead to pain, injury and/or dysfunction.
An athlete has limited mobility and stability.
An athlete has sufficient mobility but lacks stability.
An athlete has sufficient stability but lacks mobility.
Now that we understand these situations, phase 2 and phase 3 become common sense.
– Phase 2: Mobility Phase –
During the mobility phase you work 1-on-1 with Dr. Rush in the office as well as on your own. Dr. Rush will perform the necessary treatment within the office to help restore the essential mobility that you need to perform. Dr. Rush will also spend time teaching you proper mobility techniques to maintain your new found mobility and you’ll be given a mobility plan to perform on your own.
– Phase 3: Stability Phase –
Through the stability phase you will be taught proper stabilization techniques that are specific for you. Having stability is the only way to truly protect your spine and joints throughout all of their ranges of motion. You will be trained in the office and given a stability plan to perform on your own. This is a team approach, you are part of the team.
