Manual therapy consists of three phases that are focused on achieving a single long-term goal - to help the patient achieve mobility and optimum strength.

  • 1. The first step examines the body’s natural inflammatory reaction.
  • 2. The next step to target repairing the injury.
  • 3. The final step involves what is considered a remodeling phase helps achieve long-term results.

Through the use of hands-on manual techniques, inflammation is eased and pain better managed. In time, the body’s range of motion improves while undergoing the three steps. The body’s soft tissues start to heal. Continued treatment also eases your myofascial restrictions to create better physical movement.

Dr. Chaux offers a full range of physical therapy services at her office near North Ranch, CA to meet her patient’s many needs.

» Postpartum Recovery

Having a baby takes a lot out of a woman physically, mentally, and emotionally. Many women experience the following after birth:

  • Organ prolapse
  • » Incontinence
  • » Diastasis recti
  • » Lower back pain

Physical therapy using conservative treatment can halt symptom progression and bring much-needed relief which ultimately improves the quality of life substantially so you can better enjoy the time you spend with your newborn baby.

Dr. Chaux uses her skills to help a woman recover her pelvic and core muscles through the use of Hypopressive Methods that were first introduced by Dr. Marcel Caufriez.

In addition, Dr. Chaux shows new mothers proven methods for carrying their babies and performing daily activities. Using the correct form and posture helps the mother regain her pre-pregnancy state and brings relief from discomfort.

» Breast Cancer Therapy

Each year, approximately 250,000 women and 2,300 men will face the diagnosis. Unfortunately, breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer in women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Treatments often lead to problems such as:

  • » Fatigue
  • » Balance problems
  • » Joint stiffness
  • » Walking problems
  • » Weakness
  • » Numbness of the extremities
  • » Mood changes
  • » Swelling in the legs, arms, face, and trunk

Physical therapy gradually increases the patient’s endurance, improves mood, eases fatigue, and builds greater physical strength. With the assistance of physical therapy, a breast cancer sufferer is better able to recover from surgery and make it through treatments.

People coping with cancer are under horrific levels of stress and also experience severe bouts of depression. Using breathing exercises and manual techniques can make stress more manageable and ease anxiety so that depression improves.

» Post Abdominal Surgeries

Abdominal surgery causes a variety of issues that impact life such as pain and difficulty staying upright as the scars heal and start to tighten. Physical therapy often makes the scar more malleable to bring physical relief and improve posture.

The following therapy methods are often beneficial.

  • » My ofascial Release
  • » Visceral Mobilization
  • » Gentle Stretches to the Scar Area
  • » Global Postural Reeducation
  • » Trigger Point Release

With scar therapy, you can expect improved tolerance from lower abdominal muscle pressure, decreased premenstrual pain, and improved scar mobility.

» Improving Balance and Preventing Falls

Your sense of balance enables you to remain in an upright position, so you don’t fall over. You can handle obstacles such as uneven surfaces. However, if your body’s sense of balance becomes curtailed then you will have a difficult time with mobility. Aging and other physical issues can impact balance substantially and make it falter.

Balance is controlled by the body’s vestibular system. The vestibular system is made up of visual, auditory, and proprioceptive systems which all work in unison. When something goes wrong with one of the parts of the system then the balance is impacted.

» Pain Management

Pain becomes a daily battle that often leads to severe depression. Physicians often prescribe narcotic pain medications to bring comfort, but they can lead to serious side effects, addictions, and death.

Physical therapy is a natural way to ease pain by focusing on a combination of therapeutic exercise, breathing techniques, manual therapy, fitness, and patient education.

» Assisted Stretching

Assisted stretching (global body stretching) eases physical tension. A tense person is more prone to sustaining a physical injury. The fascia system covers the muscles of the body and connects everything in unison.

Sometimes, if you have pain in your back then you might feel discomfort in your leg. This is due to the fascia and can be very misleading because patients might not know what is causing their discomfort.

Dr. Chaux focuses on the treatment of the entire fascia system.

» Yoga

Yoga has been used for centuries as a naturopathic treatment option in many regions of the world. Recently there has been a resurgence of interest in yoga throughout much of the western hemisphere and it is quickly becoming a valuable component of physical therapy.

Dr. Chaux teaches her patients to use gentle yoga poses to ease their movement restrictions and reduce discomfort. She helps the patient learn how to listen to their body. Dr. Chaux will develop an at-home yoga program to fit her patient’s needs.

» Post Covid Recovery

Nowadays, people who have experienced COVID-19 often battle ongoing symptoms. They are called ‘long haulers’ by many in the medical community. Ongoing pain, mobility issues, insomnia, joint stiffness, pain, and shortness of breath are just a few lingering symptoms that the virus leaves behind. Dr. Chaux relies on your experience and knowledge of the respiratory system to help COVID survivors recover and get back to their normal state.

» Physical Therapy for Seniors

Seniors face many physical problems. However, physical therapy eases pain and improves mobility by focusing on flexibility, balance, endurance, and strength.
