Rehabilitation by Dr. Dan Wautlet

As a chiropractic rehabilitation specialist I utilize an “active” treatment approach to improve the quality of life for my patients. I do not only rely on passive treatment such as spinal manipulation (often called “adjustments”), ultrasound, myofascial release, etc., as the only means to improve your health. I also blend advice, activity modification and exercise with passive treatment in the care of my patients. This is termed the “active approach” to the treatment of musculoskeletal pain of which the most common condition is low back pain.

The “active approach” is a truly rehabilitative approach. It decreases pain and restores or improves function. Restoring function means restoring or improving your activities of daily living. Helping you do to do the things you want to do in your life, be it taking a walk, bowling or golfing. The goal of passive care such as spinal manipulation is to decrease pain and improve mobility.  With reduced pain and improved mobility achieved, I then implement the active care tactics of advice, activity modification and exercise instruction as appropriate, to improve function.  When appropriate, supervised exercise is available. This rehabilitative approach empowers patients so they can begin to self-manage their condition and not become reliant on ongoing passive treatment.

If you have back pain or another type of condition such as neck pain or tendonitis, maybe  you are at this site because you are considering  seeing a chiropractor.  I am the only  chiropractor in Northeast Wisconsin who is a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Rehabilitation Board. I am a recognized provider in the National Committee on Quality Assurance’s Back Pain Recognition Program (NCQA-BPRP). These credentials  along with my 33 years of clinical experience uniquely position me as a local expert in chiropractic rehabilitation. Call for an appointment if this is the type of approach to your condition you are looking for.
