The spine has a big job: it's the scaffolding for the spinal cord, the framework for the torso, and the sole moderator of any bending or twisting the body requires. Unsurprisingly, back pain is a common complaint, and the experts at Rainer Sports & Spinal Rehab Clinic know that it can have a number of causes. Whether it's heating pads for tiny ligament tears or more dramatic treatments for conditions such as osteoporosis or disc degeneration, the team possesses the skills and knowhow necessary to treat pain where it starts. For athletes suffering from injury or chronic pain, sports rehabilitation may be the cure. The physician leads sports-rehab patients through gentle stretches and exercises to remedy any muscular imbalances, a common cause of pain in athletes. Whatever the ailment, the clinic's range of specialized services are designed to promote healing and improve their patients' quality of life.
In addition to traditional chiropractic and physical therapy treatments, clients can receive massage therapy, personal training, yoga, and acupuncture with a licensed acupuncturist. These services are designed to complement the center's rehabilitative spinal adjustments, forging a more holistic approach to wellness that doesn't neglect any treatment approach and helps the body to heal itself.
The licensed massage therapists at Puyallup Integrative Massage have only four private rooms in which to work their magic, but they never fail to introduce their clients to an entire world of relaxation. Of course, it helps that these clients don't just walk in and plop down on the table. They must first participate in an evaluation that determines which massage styles best suit their needs. Seeing as how the therapists are trained in Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, and prenatal techniques, there are quite a few options to consider. Several therapists on staff are also adept at reflexology and infant massage, using their healing touch to relieve the stress babies experience while trying to learn a new language in just a few short years.
