Getting rid of pain is only part of our job at the office of North Park Chiropractic Center. Our skilled professionals use a variety of adjustment techniques as a primary tool to alleviate spinal misalignments and restrictions. We also incorporate soft tissue therapies to provide a complete treatment plan to deal with everything from simple low back pain to other issues affecting your comfort, mobility, and overall well being.
While alleviating symptoms is important, it’s equally important to determine the underlying cause of the pain. This is where functional assessment comes in. It is a process whereby we look for signs that point to places where joints and tissues may be overworked by poor function or improper muscle substitution.
Functional assessments are tailored to each of our patient’s goals. Included are various assessments for movement and muscle length, strength, and weakness, in addition to a postural evaluation. For athletes, we may also assess speed and agility. The results enable us to structure your individualized training program with the goal of improving your performance and maintaining your ability to move well and often, with a reduced risk of injury. Functional assessments give a fuller picture of the problem, allowing us to develop more effective treatment plans – ones that focus not just on relieving symptoms, but ones that take into account the true cause of the pain.
