At Chiropractic Associates of Gainesville, we strive to offer the care you need. With our natural options, we want to help you get out of pain and live at your full capacity. One of our solutions is physiotherapy, which is fantastic in strengthening weak or dysfunctional areas. Our physiotherapy isn’t like what you’ll find elsewhere. Your doctor will prescribe your physiotherapy exercises based on your specific needs and your health-related goals.

With a personalized program of exercises that are right for your condition, you can rebalance and rehabilitate your body.

Who Physiotherapy Is Right For

Physiotherapy takes you beyond pain relief. It addresses the root cause of your problem. For example, you may have low back pain. Though your pain may be quickly relieved, it doesn’t mean that the source of your issue is gone. Physiotherapy can provide a range of benefits, such as

  • Greater strength
  • Higher overall function
  • Improved movement
  • Less chance of a recurrence
  • Decreased pain

You can think of physiotherapy as an enhancement to what chiropractic care does for you. Most people can benefit from having a combination of both in their health care plan. When we evaluate you, we can determine if physiotherapy is right for your particular situation and concerns.

Our on-staff physiotherapist is Casey Bruce. She attended the University of Florida for her education and is an exercise physiologist. In our spacious office, you’ll work one-on-one with Casey following your doctor’s specific instructions. They will collaborate on your case to make sure you get the greatest benefit from your care.

Casey provides a comprehensive functional assessment for you. Your chiropractor will speak with her to collaborate on your case and determine which route is best for you. Based on our information and her evaluation, she’ll prescribe the exercises that are right for you.

Starting Slowly

You might think, “I’m not in the right shape to go to the gym!” Know that we work with people who have a different range of abilities and can meet you at your level. We’ll ease you into it. It’s not like exercising at the gym where heavy weights are involved. It’s all about correcting your particular condition. The exercises you do will be appropriate for your needs.

After your first physiotherapy session, you’ll leave with information on how to complete your exercises on your own time. We’ll make sure you have the resources you need so that you can complete your physiotherapy at home during your spare time.
