When you think of physical therapy and rehabilitation, what do you think about? Does your picture involve a lot of work?
At Lonstein Chiropractic and Acupuncture, physical therapy and rehabilitation takes on a whole new picture for our patients. That’s because we help them (and you as our new patient) realize that healing with physical therapy and rehabilitation is really a discovery process.
This part of your life can be thought about as a time when you discover how your body works, what to do to decrease any pain you may have, how to take care of yourself to get better and how to sustain your results. We take the time to educate you on the basics of what you need to know. Once you shift to this type of thinking, re-injuries don’t happen as often. Healing accelerates and before you know it, you’re back out on the golf course, at the baseball field, back at work full time and back to your normal workout routine as usual. You will think of this as exciting, just as we do!
In most cases, "no pain, no gain" does not apply in physical therapy. While unused muscles might be a little sore afterward, the therapy itself should not be painful.
Dr. Lonstein uses individualized treatment depending on the needs of the patient. Our radial pulse machine, ultrasound and muscle stimulator combined with exercise and massage are a few options but each individual is different.
The amount of sessions vary from patient to patient. Someone with a more severe problem would obviously require more time than someone with a relatively minor injury.
At Lonstein Chiropractic and Acupuncture we offer the most modern options available. Dr. Lonstein works with each patient to assess their individual needs. Using cutting edge, state of the art equipment as well as exercise and massage therapy he will have you moving at your full potential as quickly as possible.
Each year, 50% of Americans over 18 develop a musculoskeletal injury that lasts longer than 3 months.
Rehabilitation is really the process where people in pain or in a degenerated state start to build themselves up again. And for that, you need tools. You need tools to make you feel better. We give you those tools and we work with you until you are healed.
You’ll learn how to strengthen your joints, core muscles, and muscles near the site of the injury with exercises and various devices. Without the increased muscle tone, you can’t sustain your results.

You’ll start noticing that the way you sleep affects your healing and make a slight change. You’ll start noticing that the way you sit at the desk at work contributes to your pain and make a change. Dozens of other situations will arise when you find that you can control your pain just by making a small change.
Research shows that the more active participant you are in your treatment, the better your healing will be.
