FAQ About Chiropractic

What is Chiropractic Rehabilitation? 

Chiropractic and Rehabilitation make a logical association.  Chiropractic corrects spinal joints misalignments, and Rehabilitation restores neuromuscular strength, flexibility, balance and stability.  

Combining Rehabilitation and Chiropractic will help you optimize and accelerate your healing while reducing the risk of future injury and joint degeneration.  

Are all Chiropractors Rehabilitation Certified?

In Austin there are only two chiropractors that are board-certified by The American Chiropractic Rehabilitation and Strengthening Board.  Your North Central Board-Certified Rehabilitation and Strengthening Doctor is Dr. Wendee Whitehead.  

Only doctors who have completed an additional three-year program, including 300 post-doctoral training hours and have gone through rigorous examinations.  Chiropractors who pursue a Diplomate make a 3-year commitment for 300 hours of advanced study in examination and treatment of patients.  They must pass three written tests and a comprehensive oral evaluation.  

Rehabilitation doctors continue their postgraduate training in Rehabilitation and Strengthening to stay current with the most recent advances in Rehabilitation and Chiropractic.

What is the Difference Between a Board Certified Rehab Chiropractor and a General Chiropractor?

A board certified Rehab doctor has trained under the experts in the field.  Both a Rehab Chiropractor and an ordinary chiropractor in Austin, TX will adjust you; however, a rehab chiropractor is focused on finding the underlying cause of your pain, strengthening, stabilization and prevention of future occurrences.  

Benefits of A Board Certified Rehab Chiropractor

  • A Rehab Chiropractor is a much better choice for patients who have not responded to chiropractic manipulation alone.  Many Austin Chiropractors use adjustments only and do not give stretching, strengthening or stability exercises.
  • A Rehabilitation Doctor will diagnose and treat any dysfunction so that you can achieve maximum joint function and stability. 
  • A Board-Certified Rehab Doctor will give you the proper exercises designed for you to allow you to have maximum recovery.
  • A Board-Certified Rehabilitation Chiropractor is committed to helping you recover to the lifestyle you deserve. 
  • Board-Certified Chiropractic Rehab Doctors are experts in finding the true functional link to a patient’s problem, and when identified and corrected, lead to faster healing and reduced reoccurrences.  
  • For patients injured in auto accidents, the additional training and credentials of a Diplomate in Rehabilitation lends more credibility to a Chiropractor as an expert witness.   
  • Doctors specializing in Chiropractic Rehabilitation are taught additional skills in the treatment of the soft tissues, and in cutting edge exercise science including:
    • Cardiovascular
    • Sensory Motor
    • Stabilization
    • Endurance 
    • Strength Training  

The latest evidence-based research protocols a correct prescription begins with a specific progression to treat the injured area.  The starting point begins with a passive movement, movement in which the doctor passively moves and stretches the muscle or joint that is painful.  This prevents further injury or inflammation of the injured area while increasing the range of motion to help improve function. 

Gentle range of motion promotes healing. The next progression is passive assisted movements by the patient.  This is followed by more advanced active exercises. This progression leads to improvement in strength, stability and function in the muscle and joint. Chiropractic Manipulations assure a healthy nervous system to get the message to specific muscles to contract in the right sequence.  

What Does A Rehab Program Include?

Our Board Certified Rehabilitation Austin Chiropractor will perform a complete and thorough evaluation to determine weaknesses in your flexibility, balance, strength and endurance.  You will then be given a specific treatment plan to optimize your healing.  A rehabilitation program includes:

  • Ranges of motion
  • Flexibility - flexibility exercises restore normal tissue length and prevent long term overuse injuries.
  • Strength - Strength helps improve mobility and stability.
  • Endurance - Endurance helps prevent injuries that result from repetitive activities. 

Flexibility, strength and endurance are all necessary for a healthy musculoskeletal system to perform normal daily activities such as sitting, standing, bending, walking, running or lifting.
