Dynamic Movement Therapy

So what do we mean by dynamic movement therapy?

Dr. Prieto’s approach to treatment is of course to help get rid of the pain, but to also help improve the motion of the body. Typically, when a patient comes in for care, they are experiencing some sort of pain. Pain is really a response or a warning sign that something isn’t working properly in the body. When the body is in pain as a result of a musculoskeletal problem, there is typically a loss of motion in the surrounding joints and muscles, because the body is trying to protect itself. Therefore, it makes more sense to not only help in diminishing the pain, but to also help restore the motion in those restricted areas for treatment.

If we are talking about a musculoskeletal problem then we are basically dealing with some sort of dysfunction in the Muscles, Joints, Ligaments, Tendons, Cartilage, Fascia and or Nerves. Therefore, it would be prudent for us to find the source of the dysfunction in those areas and to help restore function of those tissues and joints.

Dynamic movement is defined as the way we move from one location to another using our body and muscles. So, we will address the pain……put the fire out…. then help restore proper motion/movement via the spinal adjustment and dynamic motion patterns. Dynamic motion patterns consist of mobilization of the joints, muscle therapy, and stretching of the muscles, etc.

What this means in simple terms is at Prieto Chiropractic and Spinal Decompression in Yorba Linda we believe in more than just an adjustment only office visit. What we found when we incorporate dynamic movement patterns/muscle therapy with the spinal adjustments the success rate for treatment recovery is so much higher than just treating with an adjustment only.
