|Comprehensive Diagnostic Evaluations
On your first visit, one of our doctors will coordinate a comprehensive medical evaluation to identify the problem. This evaluation may include
Our goals are to help you understand the cause of your problem, how our treatment plan will help restore your health and what you can do to stay healthy in the future.
At Ideal Spine and Rehab, our fully licensed physician guides your health team in a patient-centered, holistic approach to diagnosing and treating you.
Dr. Allen Houshiar, who earned a doctor of osteopathy degree, is certified by the American Academy of Family Medicine and the Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons of California. He enjoys the same professional privileges as those who hold an MD; he can prescribe drugs, order tests and perform surgery.
Dr. Houshiar also is committed to the philosophy of physical medicine, which emphasizes the treatment of conditions that affect how you move. A physical medicine specialist looks not just at an illness, injury or condition, but at the person — and what that person needs to regain healthy function in everyday activities. The basic tenet of physical medicine practice is that you are the most important member of your treatment and health plan team.
Many painful conditions are caused by a misalignment of the musculoskeletal system, especially of the spine and joints throughout the body. Chiropractic care focuses on easing pain and improving function through gentle manipulation of the spine, joints and muscles. At Ideal Spine and Rehab, our clinicians use the latest innovative adjusting technique, called “specific prone.” This technique calls for a light, gentle touch; you are comfortable throughout treatment and enjoy outstanding results.
Our chiropractic practitioners concentrate on how a patient’s muscles, nerves, and joints work together. Problems caused by injury, disease or repetitive stress from work, play and daily life can affect any joint in the body. These problems can cause symptoms such as pain, stiffness, limited movement, weakness, numbness, tingling and even headaches. Chiropractic adjustments and therapies ease pressure on nerves, helping a patient’s body to work as it should without pain.
At Ideal Spine and Rehab, our chiropractic team may include hands-on therapy, pain management (heat, cold, ultrasound and other techniques), exercise and education in your treatment plan.
Rehabilitative Exercise Programs
We create a custom exercise program for you. Your plan may start with supervised activities in the clinic; we will guide you in exercises that strengthen, stabilize and stretch the affected bones, joints and tissues. We may then map out a program of exercises and activities for you to do at home. We may then teach you different ways to approach activities in your daily life so you can avoid future injuries. The goal is to restore normal function and to reduce or eliminate pain for good.
Because Ideal Spine and Rehab is a multidisciplinary physical medicine center, we can offer you a wide array of treatment approaches. Some of the tools we can use in your treatment plan include:
If your treatment plan includes massage, our massage therapist will work under the direction of our medical staff to help you heal. A massage therapist applies pressure and gently moves skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and membranes surrounding muscle (fascia). This increases blood flow, reduces tension, stimulates nerves and stretches and loosens muscles.
Massage can ease neck, back and muscle pain. It can relieve tension and stress and some types of chronic pain. Our certified massage therapist uses the latest techniques to help reduce your pain and speed your healing.
