By offering physical therapy modalities and corrective exercises, the practice of Jeffrey Tucker, DC, has become known as a chronic pain and wellness center. “Movement is part of each patient’s treatment plan to enhance oxygen, blood flow, and the gliding of joints and soft tissues,” Tucker says. “I provide patients with corrective exercises they can do to help them heal properly and reduce the risk of future episodes.”
He uses a host of physical therapy modalities at his practice such as acoustic shockwave, lasers, Scenar therapy (bio-energy medicine), lymphatic drainage, deep-muscle stimulation, and other soft-tissue therapies. Movement therapy also increases flexibility, strength, lung capacity, and decreases body fat while increasing lean muscle mass— slowing the effects of the aging process.
