The chiropractors at HealthPro Wellness in Houma, LA in offer help for a range of conditions, from back pain to neuromuscular disorders to post-surgery recovery. If you're wondering whether you need our help, read on to find some ways to decide when it's time to come into our Houma office for physical therapy:

How long have you been in pain or discomfort?
If you've been in pain for longer than a couple of days--especially if you've already been resting and icing the painful body part--then it's a good idea to get a professional opinion.

Is the pain a recurring one?
Sometimes the pain will go away for a while but come back. This can be a sign of a serious injury and should be looked at.

Is the pain or injury sudden?
If you're unable all of a sudden to walk up the stairs, definitely seek out medical care. Likewise, if you experience acute injury--if you had a fall and now you can't sit up without pain--it's a good idea to find a professional.

Are medications not making a dent in the pain?
If over-the-counter painkillers aren't doing anything to help, then it's important to seek out a professional, who can address the underlying problem and help manage the pain.

Is this impacting your daily life?
If your pain or discomfort is enough that your routine is impacted, then it's worth making the effort to regain your previous lifestyle.

Remember, when it comes to pain, there's no benefit to "toughing it out". If you neglect an injury or a painful body part and try to work through it, oftentimes that will only lead to another injury or exacerbating your current condition. So get it treated!

Tired of being in pain? Call HealthPro Wellness in Houma, LA at (985) 872-5777 today to see how our chiropractors can help you feel better.

Massage therapy is one of the simplest ways to optimize bodily function and provide wonderful relaxation. At HealthPro Wellness Center in Houma, LA, physical therapy, chiropractic care and other services achieve better results when massage is part of a customized care plan.

What is massage therapy?

Basically, it's carefully applied, hands-on pressure. Massage therapy works on a person's muscles, ligaments, tendons and more, promoting complete relaxation and relief of tension. Dr. Haydel uses massage therapy to hasten healing and to facilitate chiropractic adjustments. In other words, massage helps chiropractic care work better and more quickly.

Typical massages last anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. Swedish and deep tissue massage are the modalities most people are familiar with. Dr. Haydel also offers Aqua Massage which combines the heat along with full body benefits. All are accomplished in a self-contained unit which looks like a tanning bed.

Interestingly, you do not get wet with Aqua Massage. However, fully adjustable water jets provide all the benefits of a full body massage through a waterproof barrier. You leave HealthPro Wellness Center feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Benefits of massage therapy

There are many benefits of massage therapy, including:

  • Relief of anxiety
  • Better sleep
  • More energy and less fatigue
  • Better attention span and concentration

Additionally, massage is known to boost the immune system, speed healing of all kinds of bodily injuries and help manage chronic conditions such as asthma, hypertension and diabetes. Combined with a program of physical therapy or chiropractic adjustments at HealthPro Wellness Center in Houma, LA, massage therapy improves muscular strength and range of motion, reduces chronic and acute pain and helps patients have better self-awareness. People who receive regular massages are better able to report how they feel and what relieves adverse physical, emotional and mental symptoms.

Would you like to learn more about the Ideal Protein Weight Loss program from your HealthPro Wellness doctor in Houma, LA?

The problem with diets and so many of the fads we see on magazine covers is that they are not sustainable. This creates a negative snowball effect because people feel bad about not being able to commit to a diet that was never sustainable to begin with and they end up overeating and gaining more weight than before.

Ideal Protein is different because it provides a comprehensive food and exercise plan, and an education to help you sustain long-term results.

What does Ideal Protein consist of and what exactly is it?

Ideal Protein has a weight loss phase that consists of carbohydrate reduction so that your body uses fats instead of glucose, broken down carbohydrates, as its main source of energy. You'll be eating healthier foods and body weight will go down while maintaining muscle mass.

This is a ketogenic diet. It's when your body uses ketones, broken down fat cells, to supply the body with energy instead of glucose. This helps eliminate the fat storage in your body and results in weight loss.

The program is safe because it was designed and developed by a doctor and your Houma, LA, physician will be with you every step of the way through this weight loss program in case you have any questions.

What will you eat on the Ideal Protein?

You will get to choose from different Ideal Protein foods that are quick and easy to prepare. The list consists of main courses, gluten free, condiments, drinks, snacks, and desserts. Yes, you read it correctly. Desserts are a part of this diet.

HealthPro Wellness Center in Houma, LA, is dedicated to helping you lose weight and be healthy. If you would like to learn more about the Ideal Protein Weight Loss program, don't hesitate to call today at (985) 872-5777.
