Chiropractic care is commonly used for rehabilitation therapy with patients who have been injured due to sports activities or trauma. Injuries that are commonly treated by Dr. Binner and Dr. Miller may include those related to a car accident, on-the-job activity, heavy lifting, or a hard fall. Sports injuries, in particular, either from trauma or overuse, bring athletes from all over Austin to our Round Rock, TX chiropractic clinic as well. Injuries resulting from these activities may include broken bones, slipped discs, stretched ligaments, or strained muscles. Rehabilitation chiropractic therapy involves various techniques and are designed to relieve patients of pain and discomfort. Chiropractic rehab restores patient’s health and ability to be mobile once again.
Our trained and skilled chiropractors use a variety of methods to help treat and rehab injuries. This method used will vary depending on the injury location, severity, and pain level. Listed below are some of the common rehab chiropractic techniques we use:
- Mckenzie Approach
The Mckenzie Approach includes various exercises that stretch the back, legs, and buttocks. A specific exercise used in this method includes laying on the back and pulling the knee, one at a time, toward the chest.
- Dynamic Lumbar Stabilization
This treatment involves exercises that begin in a lying position, to standing, to jumping. These movements are designed to move from a resting position to an active position.
- Myofascial Release Therapy
Movements that loosen muscle tightness and stiffness. Such therapy may include using a foam roller to massage muscles. Performing these types of exercises increases a patient’s range of motion.
- Graston Technique
The Graston Technique is a type of therapy that is performed by specialized tools that lightly scrape and massage the skin. This helps break down scar tissue and decreases muscle restriction.
- Kinesio Taping Method
This practice involves the taping of muscles to provide support and restriction. This kind of manipulation is helpful for muscles to heal. It is often applied after an adjustment.
Suction cups are used to stretch and release muscle tension that is too deep to massage from the surface. This technique also promotes an increase in blood flow.

About the Treatment
Prior to therapy, our team may provide patients with videos and reading material of the various routines that will be performed during their session. Therapy often includes a combination of stretching exercises and aerobic activities. Physical routines may include workouts that move from low to high intensity, such as walking, running or using an elliptical machine. Tools such as stretch bands and exercise balls are also commonly used during therapy. It may seem contradictory to perform physical activities and exercises while you are injured, but it’s all designed to release stiffness and relieve pain. Such activities are done in a controlled environment for short periods of time. It’s all part of the healing process.
What to Expect
The Chiropractor will meet with patients to discuss their reason for rehab and set up a treatment plan that’s specific to their condition. Patients, who are visiting a Chiropractor for rehabilitation therapy, are typically placed on a treatment plan for a specific period of time. For example, an athlete, who is receiving care due to a knee injury, may visit the Chiropractor several times a week for 6 weeks. The care and timeframe is all dependent on the patient and the injury.
