Our Philosophy

“Same church, different pew.” This was something said to my wife when she stated that she was married to a chiropractor. As strange as this may sound, it’s almost true. Chiropractic Medicine and Physical Therapy work well together. Not everything can be corrected using the same technique(s). People live their lives different, consisting of different stressors, environmental factors, job descriptions and genetic makeup.

Both Chiropractic and Physical Therapy are conservative forms of treatment, meaning no drugs or surgery. The human body is like a machine, and like any machine breakdowns occur. These breakdowns (or dysfunctions in medical terms) lead to pain, injury and disease. Our body will try to eliminate the pain by changing our body mechanics (compensation), so as to limit movement and actions through the area of pain. Unfortunately these compensatory body mechanics lead to continued and reinforced dysfunction, new dysfunctions and eventually injury and disease. This is the start of the “snow ball effect.” Eventually the body will run out of ways to change its body mechanics and pain will become constant. This is where I hear phrases such as “All I did was bend over to pick up a pencil and my back seized up on me” or “My knees hurt when I squat down to time my shoes.” It wasn’t the pencil or the shoes causing the issue but years of poor posture, improper body mechanics, weak core and stabilizers, poor nutrition, and contrasts in tight and weak muscles. Essentially, the pencil was “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” Enough said. Our job at Lincoln Square Chiropractic and Physical Therapy is to educate the patient on prevention, maintenance and reversal of disease. The alternative is drugs and surgery, which should always be considered the last line of defense.
