At times, an injury or problem/condition may require more than chiropractic care for you to experience a full recovery.  Muscles need to be retrained so you can get back your full range of motion.

The best way to achieve a full recovery is to go to a rehabilitation expert – Dr. Brian Moreland of Back in Motion Chiropractic.

Do Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Go Together?

Yes. Once it was understood that the science of Chiropractic and Rehabilitation needed to work hand-in-hand, the American Chiropractic Rehabilitation Board (ACRB) was created.

The ACRB was formed in 1995 and is devoted to constantly improving “the education and training of chiropractors through a certification process.”

A chiropractor that is certified by the ACRB is different than a typical chiropractor.  The ACRB’s goal is to teach chiropractors to discover the underlying cause of the problem and then empower the patient with exercises that they can later perform on their own.  This concept is progressive and has been proven to help patients feel better and live more active lives.

In 2008, Dr. Moreland was awarded the prestigious Diplomate status in Chiropractic Rehabilitation by the ACRB.  Diplomate status, the highest level of certification possible, has been achieved by less than 144 doctors nationwide.  At the time of his certification, Dr. Moreland was the youngest rehabilitation Diplomate in the country and the second youngest in the world.

Two years ago I was suffering from constant severe pain in my lower back - the result of a ruptured lumbar disc.  I was taking pain killers  just to cope with the pain, and was having great difficulty with the simplest of activities. I started seeing Dr. Moreland, and after 3 weeks I had significant improvement in pain and motion.  I am a strong proponent, and especially for the type of focused, tailored care that Dr. Moreland provides.  It works.

Rehabilitation Sessions

With this high level of training, Dr. Moreland devises a rehabilitation plan that is patient specific and involves using a variety of techniques from passive and functional stretching to cardiovascular conditioning to balance and strength training (much like traditional physical therapy). 

Back In Motion Chiropractic offers both high-tech and low-tech rehabilitation to provide patients with the best of both worlds.  For some conditions, it is beneficial to utilize high-tech equipment that will allow people to attain maximum results, like using an iJoy board to improve a patient’s sense of balance or using the Wave vibration platform to allow a patient with osteoporosis to strengthen muscles and build bone density when they are unable to perform traditional exercise.  Dr. Moreland’s strong belief that rehabilitative exercises should be performed at home in addition to in the office setting drives his passion to use a lot of low-tech rehabilitation with a majority of his patients.  “Very few of my patients have the ability or desire to spend $12,000 on a machine to do whole body vibration, but all of my patients have a space on their floor at their home where they can perform stretches and strengthening exercises,” says Dr. Moreland.  

Dr. Moreland will often incorporate some high-tech rehab in the office, but keep the bulk of the rehab plan based in low-tech rehab so that his patients can duplicate their rehabilitative routine in the weeks and months after they are released from care.  “Rehab doesn’t stop the day you get released from care.  My patients that continue their rehabilitative exercises at home are the same patients that don’t need to see me as frequently because they have greater stability and get injured less frequently.  This is a true wellness approach towards optimum health.”  

Since Dr. Moreland of Back In Motion Chiropractic places such an emphasis on the proper performance of a rehabilitative plan, several local medical doctors and orthopedic surgeons refer their patients to see Dr. Moreland instead of sending them to a traditional physical therapy clinic.  Please discuss this alternative with your doctor if you wish to be referred to our facility for your physiotherapeutic needs.

A rehabilitation session generally consists of a warm-up, a stretching and exercise phase, and a cool-down.

Treatment is always based on the needs and goals of the patient.  The patient’s end goal of treatment is based on the demands of their daily lives and their lifestyle goals.

Unlike Dr. Moreland, many chiropractors perform the same service with all of their patients each and every time.  The patient becomes dependent and there is no progression.  A board certified rehab Diplomate is trained to address movement, fitness, function, and posture.  The patient is an active part of the process.  It is proven that active rehabilitative care is far more effective than traditional chiropractic methods alone.

Let Dr. Moreland’s extensive experience in rehabilitation and his knowledge gained through ACRB instruction improve your quality of life with a rehabilitation plan that fits you.
