Welcome toAbsaroka Pain & Rehab
Absaroka Pain and Rehab is a multi-disciplinary practice that offers Physical Therapy, Chiropractic care and Massage Therapy. We pride ourselves in working together to create a cohesive treatment plan individualized for each patient. Our team of providers meet on a regular basis to go over each patient’s case and determine the most effective course of action. Our services include chiropractic treatment and a range of physical therapy and massage techniques. There is no “one-size-fits-all” treatment for patients. Thus, as a team, we map out the physical therapy treatment to work alongside the patient’s chiropractic treatment and massage regimen in order to cover all bases. By meeting with a team of professionals, we can determine the best techniques for treatment. In some cases, there may be new developments that require us to change the treatment along the way. If this is so, we will be sure to review it with the patient and loved ones so that no one is confused throughout the process. Under the direction of Dr. Jordan Bagley, D.C., we put our patients first.
Chiropractic treatment is a noninvasive way to help decrease pain throughout the body. It can be preventative in nature and help to avoid bad biomechanics. It can be easy to assume that back pain is only temporary and will go away with some over-the-counter pain medication and rest. The reality is that many forms of back pain will only get worse without professional chiropractic treatment. Since over-the-counter medication only masks the symptoms, the patient does not treat the issue at its source and only receives temporary relief. Thus, we offer each patient a customized rehabilitation plan for the individual’s condition. We understand how difficult it can be to live with the pain each day and therefore, offer treatment to permanently alleviate the pain. Getting a regular adjustment can also correct bad posture during day to day activities.
Physical therapy has traditionally been known as a form of treatment for acute or chronic painful conditions; a treatment that incorporates exercise with posture and body mechanics training. It is also commonly known, those that receive physical therapy have just gotten surgery. The other very important demographic our physical therapists treat are those who develop dysfunctional movement patterns that are causing injury to their bodies. Our therapists strongly believe our bodies need balance between mobility and stability in order to create nonpainful, functional movement. When individuals are recovering from injury or disease, the physical therapist evaluates and directs the recovery process to relieve pain, promote strength training, and help regain function. Physical therapists also teach patients and their families what to do so that healing and recovery continues at home.
Our massage therapists primarily perform deep tissue techniques to targeted body areas, which help reduce tension in trigger points, reduce stress, improve circulation and decrease pain. Releasing tight tissues can help the body function more optimally without restrictions that are built up through day to day activities and stress. Acute or chronic injuries will benefit from massage by working out the adhesions that develop in muscle tissue over time. Sometimes these adhesions will emit a pain response without pressure but only when the muscle is activated and moved. Other times adhesions will cause a pain response only when direct pressure is applied. It is important to receive massages regularly even if they have not started to cause pain yet to ensure the tissues stay healthy and don’t develop into chronic injuries.
