Chiropractic and Physical Therapy in San Francisco

We have been providing chiropractic and physical therapy in San Francisco for over 23 years now.  

Chiropractic and physical therapy (PT) go hand in hand. They are both natural treatments that seek to restore lost health and function without drugs or surgery.

We have found that the combination of chiropractic and PT can make the difference between success or failure in certain cases.  Sometimes chiropractic is not enough, and sometimes PT is not enough. Having a fully equipped PT dept. with a team of highly trained therapists enables us to treat the most challenging injuries and improve outcomes.  We also have medical doctors on staff at our primary clinic.

Recently, our main chiropractic clinic in downtown San Francisco, Chiro-Medical Group, Inc. (CMG), acquired Executive Express Chiropractic at the Embarcadero Center.  The new name is Chiro-Medical Group Express (CMGE). CMGE is just a few short blocks away from CMG and caters to the busy executive who wants to walk in and be seen right away. It is also a portal of entry to the main clinic where more services and diagnostics are available.

The PT and chiropractic combo is especially useful when it comes to sports injuries or auto accidents. Aligning the spine is great, but if there are injuries that require rehabilitation then PT is probably a good idea as well.

When you rehabilitate an injured body part properly you increase the odds of a long lasting permanent solution. The Chiropractic and PT combo should be considered f this is your goal. Chiropractic is great for maintenance care as are exercises that your PT will prescribe. Maintenance care will reduce the odds of re-injury and increase the odds of long term success.

Chiropractic and Sports Injuries in San Francisco

sports injuries san franciscoWe have been providing treatment for sports injuries in downtown San Francisco for over 23 years now. 

Whether it be a sprain strain from weekend warrior activities or a herniated disc in the neck or the back, chiropractic can help…especially a sports chiropractor that spends the majority of their day treating sports injuries.

We learned early on that the combination of chiropractic, medical care, physical therapy, and sports trainers, is a potent combination for correctly diagnosing and treating sports injuries.

Chiropractic is great for preventing and treating the majority of sports related musculoskeletal conditions that we see in our clinics. But to be able to handle the full spectrum of sports related traumas and injuries it takes more.

Our primary clinic Chiro-Medical Group Inc. is fully equipped with digital x-ray, diagnostic ultrasound and many other advanced technologies geared towards treating sports injuries. We also have a very large staff of sports chiropractors, physical medicine doctors (MD’s) nurses, trainers, and support staff. Our clinic director Scott Calzaretta has even been a team doctor for the US Olympic Team.

Our satellite clinic is Chiro-Medical Group Express (CMGE) and is a few blocks away at the Embarcadero Center.  CMGE offers express, walk-in service for busy office workers on the go as well as sports injuries treatment  and spinal decompression for herniated and bulging discs.

Many of our patients visit both clinics depending on their needs.

The most important thing when it comes to effectively treating sports injuries is a correct diagnosis and proper treatment protocols. Most athletes want to get back to their sports training and performing and require special expertise that not all chiropractors can provide.

When it comes to treating sports injuries in San Francisco we stand above the rest and most of our medical team are athletes themselves. This really does matter.

So, if you live or work near the SF Financial District and have suffered a sports injury that requires treatment, we would love to meet up with you.

To schedule an appointment with a sports medicine doctor in San Francisco please call 415-495-2225 (CMG) or 415-392-2225 (CMGE).

Whiplash Treatment in San Francisco

whiplash treatment san franciscoWe have been providing treatment for whiplash in downtown San Francisco for over 23 years now. 

Just about every day we treat a new patient with a whiplash injury…usually due to an auto accident. Many of our other new patients with chronic neck pain and headaches report previously untreated whiplash injuries.

That’s right, whiplash if not treated properly can lead to problems down the road such as neck and back pain, headaches, low back pain, insomnia, TMJ, and shoulder pain.

This is why it is so important to be seen right away after a car accident even if you have no symptoms. The spine and soft tissues are remarkably strong but are just not designed to handle the amount of forces even a 5 miles per hour impact can expose them to.

Chiropractors are the proven experts when it comes to the treatment of whiplash injuries. if you are in a serious auto accident it is probably a good idea to be checked out in the emergency room for fracture or dislocation, but that’s pretty much where it should end. Your next stop should be a chiropractor.

The most important thing when it comes to healing injured soft tissues sustained from whiplash trauma is “motion”. That’s right, without motion the joints will develop scar tissue which could lead to permanent damage and chronic pain. Chiropractors are motion experts even with badly injured patients. We also have technologies such as deep tissue laser therapy, ultrasound, and electro-stimulation to help reduce pain and inflammation.

Your chiropractor can also provide you with low-tech “do at home” exercises that are very important when it comes to restoring motion and recovering from a whiplash injury.

Our San Francisco Chiropractors are whiplash experts. We treat whiplash injuries day in and day out and have been doing so for over 20 years.

We also have 2 clinics to serve you and they are a short walking distance from one another. Our primary clinic is Chiro-Medical Group, Inc. which has an expert team of medical doctors, physical therapists, nurses, athletic trainers, and chiropractors. We also have state of the art diagnostic equipment such as digital x-ray and diagnostic ultrasound.

Our satellite clinic is located at the Embarcadero Center and offers express, no wait chiropractic, whiplash treatment and spinal decompression.

To schedule an appointment for whiplash treatment in San Francisco please call 415-392-2225. Most insurance accepted. Validated Parking Embarcadero Center.

Cervical Decompression for Arm and Hand Pain

Cervical Decompression with the DRX9000c

We have been providing cervical spinal decompression treatment in San Francisco for over 10 years now. The machine we use is the DRX9000c.

The DRX9000c cervical decompression system treats bulging and herniated discs in the neck which are a primary cause of arm and hand pain.

The nerves that exit from the neck travel down the arm and into the hand. When these nerves become pinched from herniated or bulging cervical discs it can cause neck pain, shoulder pain, arm and hand pain, weakness of grip, numbness, tingling, even night pain.

Because these symptoms mimic those of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), herniated discs in the neck are often misdiagnosed as CTS. In fact, sometimes carpal tunnel surgery is even performed (even though the cause is in the neck)…if you can believe that.

Once it is determined that the underlying cause of a patients arm and hand pain is a herniated or bulging disc (by MRI) we will first attempt to help with conservative treatments such as chiropractic, massage, and physical therapy. In the event these treatments fail to deliver results we may recommend cervical decompression with the DRX9000c.

The DRX9000c is designed and built to treat herniated discs in the neck without surgery. Sometimes a combination of decompression, chiropractic and exercise works best. If we need the help of a medical doctor we have them as part of our team also.

To find out if you are a candidate for arm and hand pain treatment with cervical decompression in San Francisco please call 415-392-2225. We are in network for most insurance carriers. We also have validated parking at the Embarcadero Center where we are located.
