Dr. Simpson, a Manhattan Chiropractor who does his own MASSAGE, EXERCISE REHABILITATION, and NUTRITION; makes a big distinction between PASSIVE chiropractic treatment care (what is done to the patient) and ACTIVE care (what the patient does on their own - like stretches for lower back pain). Most musculoskeletal problems like back pain, lower back pain, neck pain, leg pain and other chronic pain or acute pain issues need both personal and chiropractic treatments to achieve pain relief. Passive care consists of chiropractic manipulation and therapeutic pain management modalities (electric stimulation; ice). Active care consists of exercises, postural and ergonomic education, and neuromuscular re-education (changing faulty muscle patterns). Active pain relief treatment allows the patient to achieve optimal health and be less dependent on the doctor to provide pain management relief.
