Serving Palm Beach County, Lake Clarke Chiropractic Group features facilities and treatment for a wide array of nerve, muscle and joint disorders of the spine and extremities.
PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY AND PROCEDURES:
Diagnosis is considered paramount prior to the initiation of any treatment program. All new patients therefore undergo comprehensive consultation and physical examination prior to treatment. The office is also equipped with an x-ray department for radiological studies of the spine and extremities.
The above procedures allow us to determine whether or not a patient is a candidate for chiropractic care. Patients in need of further diagnostic studies or evaluation by another physician are readily referred to an appropriate health care provider.
CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATIVE THERAPY:
Chiropractic is that science and art which utilizes the inherent recuperative powers of the body and the relationship between the musculoskeletal structures and the nervous system in the restoration and maintenance of health.
All doctors are skilled in multiple chiropractic manipulative techniques including McKenzie extension therapy and Cox flexion distraction for the conservative treatment of intervertebral disc syndromes.
The word physiotherapy is generally considered to be a shortened form for physiological therapeutics: treatment by physical or mechanical means. Physiotherapy encompasses the treatment of disorders of the body utilizing the natural substances and forces of healing such as cold, electricity, exercise, traction, heat, light, massage and water.
All doctors are board certified in physiotherapy. A complete line of physiotherapeutic modalities complement our manipulative therapies including electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, hot/cold packs and both cervical and lumbar traction.
Our office is keenly aware of the concern regarding the therapeutic benefits and cost effectiveness of any program of care. Research has documented both the clinical and cost effectiveness of chiropractic care in the treatment of many neuromusculoskeletal conditions.
The doctors are available for presentations to groups or organizations and welcome the opportunity to provide second opinions for difficult or chronic cases. Chiropractic care is covered by health and auto policies and workers’ compensation in the state of Florida. As a courtesy to our patients, our staff is trained to process insurance billings once coverage has been verified.
