Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Ritu Mehta, one of the leading lewisville pain management doctors, completed her Doctor of Chiropractic program from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas. She specializes in treating patients with musculoskeletal disorders, such as fibromyalgia, neck pain, back pain, headaches and muscle spasms. Dr. Mehta focuses on providing patients with thorough and specialized care, thus creating a personalized treatment plan for each individual patient. She also spends a significant amount of time evaluating and understanding the patient’s history and current complaint in order to provide them with optimal chiropractic treatment.
Dr. Mehta utilizes various therapeutic modalities such as trigger point therapy and myofascial release. The most common procedure she performs is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation or adjustment of the affected joint restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness which allow tissues to heal. In summary, chiropractic treatment in conjunction with pain management will allow one to regain their quality of life and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
