Rehabilitation

Independent Physical Medicine

Regenerative Medicine & Pain Management Specialist located in Lima, OH

When an area on your body becomes painful/ injured or degenerated, for whatever reason, structures are damaged and the normal balance of feedback is disrupted. The brain receives these disrupted signals and in response produces disrupted dysfunctional responses. This new dysfunctional communication patterns persist long after tissues have been “repaired”. Dysfunctional neural communication can cause ongoing problems and create what many refer to as a lingering injury. Sometimes patients use the term “its never been the same since.” When this dysfunctional communication begins your body responds with protective mechanisms such as pain signaling and restricting motion in the area causing stiffness and inflexibility. As long as dysfunctional communication continues so will optimum function. Independent Physical Medicine is an integrated practice that utilizes specialized rehab, regenerative medicine, and chiropractic as well as other services to address all aspects of chronic pain and conditions.
