For patients needing chiropractic attention, Galveston Accident & Injury offers the services of a board-certified chiropractor, who oversees all physical therapeutic services and administers chiropractic treatments.
General Therapeutic Treatments A wide range of therapeutic treatments are available to help patients regain physical skills and aptitudes.
Administered by registered massage therapists, soft tissue techniques promote circulation by releasing the body’s natural endorphins and reducing muscular spasms. Encouraging patients to relax decreases pain and helps in reducing stress, which could lead to anxiety, irritability, and depression.
Our facility’s structured physical medicine program focuses on helping the patient reverse muscular atrophy and regain the strength and confidence to resume normal activities. Additionally, we develop and teach specific, simple programs designed to provide patients with pragmatic (no tech/low tech) rehabilitation skills allowing the patient to become independent in self-care.
Physical/functional capacity evaluations, impairment ratings, muscle strength tests, range of motion studies, NCV and EMG evoked potential evaluations are performed on-site to facilitate patient access, decrease anxiety, and reduce patient travel time and cost.
