Commonly, chiropractors utilize spinal manipulation and a combination of pain-relieving modalities (hot or cold packs, ultrasound, and interferrential muscle stimulation) to treat various problems.  Dr. Schmutz takes this process one step further.  He believes that the addition of active therapeutic exercises helps alleviate pain faster and aids in the recovery process. 
But he's not the only one with this view.  Studies by the U.S. government, the RAND Corportation, and the Quebec Task Force all agree with this in various forms.  In fact, according to two authors, "active rehabilitation is essential for all patients, including those for whom surgery is being considered".
Chiropractors don't focus solely on the spine either.  Dr. Schmutz treats other conditions too.

Common conditions which we treat at C.S.T.C. include:
  • Herniated discs
  • Sprains & Strains (neck, back, ankle, hip, etc.)
  • Degenerative joint disease/osteoarthritis
  • Headaches (tension, migrane & cervicogenic)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shoulder - tendonitis/impingement syndrome/rotator cuff
  • "Tennis elbow"
  • IT band syndrome
