With our specialty in orthopedics we treat a variety of musculo-skeletal conditions conservatively, without drugs and only refer to surgery as a last resort. Although statistics indicate that only one in five chronic pain sufferers ever get better, four out of five of our patients are significantly better within a few weeks of beginning treatment in our office.
Dr. Hargis’s training is somewhat unique as there are relatively few chiropractic orthopedists in the country. Chiropractic orthopedists deal with orthopedic problems non-surgically and work to correct problems before the need of surgery. However we do refer and work with general practitioners, pain management specialists and surgeons if necessary. We offer a unique service as well which includes a comprehensive and in depth examination/evaluation for those living some distance away from the office. Within a few hours we can evaluate and recommend the proper course of therapy which can then be performed by health practitioners closer to the patient’s home and we often perform this service for chronic pain sufferers living in other towns or states.
At Warwick Brain and Spine Therapy, we use the latest imaging techniques like weight bearing MRI to ensure that we are seeing the true effects of weight bearing on the spine. Unlike MRI’s done lying down, weight bearing MRI’s reveal more of an in-depth understanding of spinal injury and abnormalities.
We employ soothing and healing therapies like ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, massage and hot packs coupled with precise spinal manipulation when indicated to restore spinal health and reduce nerve related pain.
To ensure that our patients stay in good shape we will structure a tailored exercise program based upon your specific needs and spinal condition. Nutrition is also important and we offer expert counseling to help you achieve your goals.
Our care is geared to patients of all ages and we take into consideration their degree of spinal and physical health when treating our patients. We accept most insurances including Medicare.
Our office is expert in the care and handling of injury patients and we have a lengthy track-record of handling injury cases. We work with local attorneys to insure that your injuries are evaluated and properly authenticated. Our care is covered by both no-fault auto and workman’s compensation in New York.
