Living with chronic or acute neck and back pain can interrupt one’s ability to live the life they want to live. Even activities like driving, attending sporting events, and doing laundry can become extremely difficult if your body’s mobility, alignment, and stability are not functioning properly. The DMR Method treats the underlying condition through a clinically proven process where patients receive the right treatment at the right time. This collaborative, nonsurgical approach eliminates many of the body’s obstacles to healing and provides significant results in a short period of time.
The DMR Method Treats Underlying Conditions
Many of the treatments patients have undergone prior to the DMR Method were the right treatments, but they were delivered at the wrong time. This can leave individuals disappointed with their results.
And at times, this can also cause the underlying condition to worsen until surgery seems inevitable. For instance, entering into a physical therapy treatment plan focused on strengthening before the underlying mobility and stability imbalances are addressed can ultimately stabilize the dysfunction.
Benefits of The DMR Method
In addition to being clinically proven, the benefits of the DMR Method are rapid, predictable, and lasting. As DMR Method patients progress along the recovery curve, they’ll move through a predictable path of decreasing symptoms and improved function. Below, I’ve outlined the benefits patients can expect in each phase of the recovery curve.
This first phase of the recovery curve focuses on restoring mobility. During this phase, DMR Method patients will be educated on the specifics of their condition and work toward relieving their pain. They will experience the following benefits:
- Decreased symptoms
- Decreased inflammation
- Improved mobility
During the repair phase of the recovery curve, the focus is on achieving alignment. While you may experience occasional symptom flare-ups as your soft tissue works to repair itself, you will find it easier to do the things you like to do. You can expect the following benefits:
- Soft tissue repair
- Improved alignment
- Improved physical ability
The third and final phase of the recovery curve works to restore stability. While patients will likely have completely resolved symptoms and be able to engage in their normal daily activities during this phase, they are not finished with treatment. The rehab phase focuses on reducing a patient’s risk of re-injury by promoting stability and proper coordination. Patients experience the following during this phase:
- Resolved symptoms
- Improved stability
- Restored physical ability
DMR Method Produces Results
One of the most damaging assumptions DMR Method patients need to get past is that pain-free means problem-free. It doesn’t. In reality, pain is a very poor indicator of health. Typically, pain and other symptoms appear after a condition or disease is advanced. When your pain goes away, that is just the first sign that treatment is working. The underlying condition is still there when pain is not. It’s important to follow through on your treatment in order to experience the full benefits of the DMR Method.
