How We Treat Costochondritis At Dublin Physical & Chiropractic

There are a number of ways that we treat costochondritis at Dublin Physical & Chiropractic. We offer a range of treatments, including physical therapy, chiropractic care, laser therapy, and intrinsic core strengthening.

Physical therapy 

Physical therapy is one of our most popular treatment options as it can be tailored specifically to each individual’s needs. We will work with you to create a treatment plan that suits your needs, whether that be exercise therapy, intrinsic core, or laser therapy. It all depends on the severity of costochondritis symptoms and what works best for each individual’s body at that time.

Laser Therapy

If you’re looking for an alternative to medication or surgery, laser therapy may be the right treatment for you. It is a non-invasive treatment that uses low-level light therapy to relieve costochondritis symptoms.

Laser therapy works by using light energy to stimulate the body’s tissues. This helps to reduce inflammation and pain in costochondritis, as well as promote healing by stimulating blood flow in the area of treatment.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is another popular option because it focuses on relieving pain and improving function in the spine. We use manual manipulation, which is a treatment that involves moving joints to their full range of motion. This helps relieve costochondritis symptoms such as pain, stiffness, or limited mobility.

Intrinsic Core Strengthening 

Intrinsic core strengthening can also be used for costochondritis issues because it focuses on activating and strengthening the deep core muscles. This helps to improve your posture and protect your spine.

Exercise Therapy

Our physical therapists will integrate home-exercise plans into your costochondritis treatment plan. These exercises are designed to strengthen the muscles in and around your costal cartilage, which is important for protecting against costochondritis symptoms such as pain or limited mobility.

Shockwave Therapy For Costochondritis

Shockwaves are sound waves that are sent through the body to stimulate healing. This therapy is often used to treat chronic pain, and has been shown to be effective in reducing pain and inflammation in costochondritis.
