Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Here at Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine our chiropractor, Dr. Fluitt, has been trained to treat multiple neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. Being a chiropractor in Austin, Dr. Fluitt has also gained a plethora of experience in treating the aforementioned conditions because people in Austin are so active, and his patients trust him to help keep them active and recover faster after injury.
When you come into our clinic for the first time, Dr. Fluitt will perform a full chiropractic evaluation and design a course of treatment for your specific needs. Treatment may include spinal manipulation, therapeutic exercises, as well as modalities such as electrical stimulation, ultrasound, heat, and ice.
In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. When other medical conditions exist, your chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with your condition.
Dr. Fluitt may assess you through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate or not appropriate. Dr. Fluitt will readily refer you to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for your condition, or your condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of your health care team.
