Diagnostic and Treatment Methods

CHRONIC PAIN

Do you, a friend or a family member suffer from chronic pain in the back, neck or joints? Have you been told you have to live with it? Or do you have to take frequent/daily pain medication? Pain medications are rough on stomachs, kidneys and livers.

Chiropractic care is overwhelmingly the best treatment for neck and back pain. It gets you back to work, to playing sports and an active lifestyle faster. Chiropractic works to correct the cause of your problem, not mask the symptoms.

We at Bass River Chiropractic follow a comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treat your spinal problems. First we do an in depth case history, followed by thorough orthopedic and neurologic testing. Then usually x-rays are taken to pinpoint the problem. From the results of the History, Exams and X-rays, a report of findings is given that explains your problem and proposed treatment.

We also have licensed massage therapists available as part of your health and wellness routine. In addition to chiropractic care, Dr. Reida stays current with the latest natural methods for reducing pain.

Chiropractors are part of healthcare team.
Several years ago, Dr. Reida co-authored the book titled "The Worlds Best-Kept Health Secrets Revealed". His portion of the book talked about the fact that in this day and age the consumer has become much more sophisticated and proactive in taking care of their own health. Years ago, the average patient had one-family doctor and would go to that doctor for virtually any problem they had and in turn they would follow the directions without questioning that doctor's advice. These days the more sophisticated patient or consumer chooses their healthcare team. Often, the patient will have a primary care doctor, a chiropractor, a physical therapist, a massage therapist, a nutritionist, a personal trainer, an acupuncturist, and a variety of other health-care providers. No doctor can take care of all problems, but we at Bass River Chiropractic enjoy an excellent relationship with other healthcare providers. We are well-equipped to refer you to the Pain Clinic, to a neurosurgeon, to an orthopedic surgeon, to Boston hospitals, to laboratories for blood or urinalysis, to radiology centers for MRIs or CAT scan or ultrasound diagnostics. We interact freely with healthcare providers of all types and we work with the team approach to the patient's benefit. We also receive referrals from local medical doctors about 100 times per year.

Diagnostic & Treatment methods...
Chiropractic care today incorporates a multitude of diagnostic and treatment methods to effectively identify and treat the spinal subluxation complex.

1. Orthopedic, neurological, radiographic, and other examinations are routinely used to evaluate a patient's condition.

2. Comfortable chiropractic equipment and gentle chiropractic methods are employed to adjust the spinal subluxation complex.

3. Soothing ancillary therapies are applied to comfortably promote patient recovery and healing.

4. Patient education, home exercise regimens, and referral for physical therapy (which are used to compliment the chiropractic course of treatment), are important components of patient rehabilitation.

The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a gentle, low-force approach to chiropractic care. The technique has been used safely on patients of all ages since the late 1960s, bringing relief to people with a variety of health concerns.

Incorporating the latest advances in orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic examinations, this unique system of administering spinal adjustments using research-based analysis and the Activator Adjusting Instrument can help restore spinal balance safely and comfortably.

The Activator Adjusting Instrument is the tool more doctors choose to deliver low-force chiropractic adjustments. This unique hand-held instrument has been studied extensively with results published in hundreds of peer-reviewed research papers, and was designed to give patients a specific and gentle adjustment.

The Activator provides a controlled, fast thrust that is comfortable for the patient. In fact, adjustments with the Activator are so quick and measured, the body’s muscles are less likely to resist, allowing for a more precise and accurate adjustment.
