I’m Dr. Tom Johnson from Kalani Total Health Center.
Today, we are continuing our discussion on sciatica and how specifically we can treat this condition at Kalani Total Health Center.
So, let’s get started.
Sciatica Consultation and Examination In Oxnard, CA
Your first visit will start with a private consultation and evaluation
by one of our best doctors. This will begin with a complete health and injury history so our doctors can fully understand your health, both the past and the present, as well as determine how your sciatic pain is affecting your overall quality of life and your overall health.
Then our doctors will complete a comprehensive physical examination, which will include the assessment of your spine, your posture, and your functional movement patterns. We’ll perform active and passive range of motion tests, orthopedic and neurological tests, and conduct specific palpation of the bones, joints, and soft tissues that are affecting your sciatica.
This will help us get to the root cause of your sciatica, which is crucial to understanding how to fix your sciatica.
If further diagnostic testing is indicated, then we may take
X-rays, low frequency MRIs, or nerve connection velocity testing.
Our doctors will then carefully review all the information collected
during your physical examination to provide a clear and concise treatment plan that specifically meets your goals. A unique attribute of our treatment plans is to focus on combining the patient’s goals and our exam findings. That’s how we drive a treatment plan specifically for your condition.
We will then review our doctor’s best recommendations for you to determine how we can best help and serve you.
Sciatica Relief Treatment In Oxnard, CA
At Kalani Total Health Center, we specialize in providing a multidiscipline and integrated approach for our patients with state-of-the-art services, including chiropractic care, medical care, physical therapy, sports medicine, therapeutic and corrective care exercises, acupuncture, massage therapy, and clinical nutrition.
Patients progress through phases of care beginning in the acute care phase, where our goal is simply to get you out of pain and control the inflammation and swelling. As you improve, you will progress to active care, what we call corrective care, where the focus is on improving range of motion and breaking up scar tissue, resolving the abnormal changes in your spine that are affecting the sciatic nerves.
Once we’ve made the necessary corrections to get you out of pain and restore the function of your spine, we can proceed into a strength
and conditioning phase where we focus on corrective care and therapeutic exercises focusing on flexibility, joint mobility, and strength.
Next, we graduate into our wellness phase of care where we focus on your critical nutrition, integrating acupuncture and massage therapy
for improved circulation and overall health. This way we can get you back to your active lifestyle.
Our goals are your goals, and together we can make some amazing changes. Not only for your sciatica and your spinal health but your overall health and wellness.
