Dr. Bryan Abrams received his Doctor of Chiropractic at the prestigious National University of Health Sciences, graduating Cum Laude in 2010. While in school, Dr. Abrams developed a strong interest in soft tissue techniques and functional rehabilitation. Utilizing these two facets of therapy in combination with chiropractic manipulation has given him a rounded approach to treating his patients, which yields quicker and more effective treatment results. Dr. Abrams is a second-generation chiropractor (his dad currently practices in Massachusetts). Having been adjusted the majority of his life; he was able to experience firsthand the benefits of chiropractic care, which inspired him to pursue a career in alternative medicine. Dr. Abrams leads an active and healthy life style. When he's not focusing on healthcare, Dr. Abrams can be found frequenting many of LA's music venues (which may or may not have something to do with his singer/songwriter Fiancée) and loves hiking with his Goldendoodle, Mila.
CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATIVE THERAPY
Manual adjustments are one of the powerful components of Dr. Abrams' treatment regimen. A chiropractic adjustment is a high velocity, low amplitude thrust to a joint that is executed by using the chiropractor's hands. Dr. Abrams has a reputation of giving extremely effective and gentle adjustments. Adjustments are usually followed by an audible release of gas (which sounds like a popping noise). The adjustment is proven to be very beneficial due to the inverse relationship of nocireceptors (pain receptors) and mechanoreceptors (movement receptors). By activating the mechanoreceptors through an adjustment, you desensitize the nocireceptors. In other words, by increasing movement you decrease pain. According to the American Chiropractic Association, "Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Although chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. The risks associated with chiropractic, however, are very small. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness, stiffness or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. Current research shows that minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulation typically fades within 24 hours."
SOFT TISSUE THERAPY
Dr. Abrams considers soft tissue therapy to be a very critical element of his treatment program. Where manipulation is very effective for the bones and the joints, soft tissue therapy addresses the surrounding muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and fascia. Soft tissue injuries occur when there is macro (i.e.: car accident or a fall) or micro (i.e.: aberrant motion or poor posture) trauma. This results in the production of fibrotic (scar) tissue in the muscles/tendons, which limits range of motion and generates pain. Dr. Abrams detects those adhesions and utilizes a specific stretch while simultaneously adding a dynamic motion into the respective muscle group. This combination yields a far superior outcome.
For most injuries that Dr. Abrams treats in his office, it's necessary to transition into an active phase of care. In other words, once the patient begins to feel better, we can begin to focus on regaining optimal function. This is accomplished by performing a functional assessment to diagnose each patient's weak link(s) in their kinetic chain. Dr. Abrams will incorporate a rehab program containing specific exercises to target the dysfunctional movement patterns. You'll notice when performing these exercises that they are complex movements that involve multiple muscle groups simultaneously. From a dynamic standpoint, our musculoskeletal system behaves synergistically. This balance is what creates functionality, which is what we will strive to restore.
