Orthopedic Conditions: How We Can Help
When a patient is recommended for our specialty orthopedic physical therapy, it is usually for conditions that affect the muscoskeletal system, such as:
- Back Pain
- Pelvic Floor Disfunctions
- Core Strengthening
- Muscle Strains
- Ligament Sprains
- Post-operative Conditions
When you injure a bone, muscle, ligament, tendon, or joint, you might experience pain, limited mobility, or loss of strength. These symptoms can become severe and can inhibit your normal lifestyle, whether that be at work or at your favorite recreational event with your friends and family. Our team of doctors and therapists will help you by focusing on healing your injury or condition effectively, and in turn improving your functional mobility and strength.
A surgeon might recommend orthopedic physical therapy after undergoing an operation involving the muscoskeletal system. At New Beginnings Family Chiropractic, we can guide you through your rehab program after a surgery in order to get you back on your feet in a short amount of time.
If you have any questions about orthopedic physical therapy or want to know if it is the right option for your situation, give our office a call at (817) 431-4242.
Neurological conditions are those that affect the central nervous system and can alter the way a patient moves, speaks, learns, breathes, or swallows. These diseases can also negatively impact mood, senses, vision, and memory. Some of the neurological conditions that we treat at New Beginnings Family Chiropractic include:
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Vestibular Disorders
How Does a Physical Therapist Help?
After a patient suffers an injury, there is a duration during which a patient’s uninjured cells in the brain and spinal cord preserve the ability to learn how to control the functions that were lost. Our physical therapists specializing in neurological conditions can use that ability to teach patients how to move correctly again.
Physical therapy has become such an essential part in the rehabilitation of patients with neurological conditions that the American Physical Therapy Association has provided a sub-specialty for neurological therapists. These types of therapists work with patients to stop the neurological condition from progressing.
One of the most important aspects we work on is balance training to improve stability, prevent falling, and maintaining sufficient strength in your legs and core. Some examples of balance exercises include:
- Standing on one leg and raising the other
- Heel-to-toe (tightrope walking)
- Walking with high knees
- Standing up from a sitting position
In Parkinson’s Disease for instance, the brain struggles with transitional movements, holding/stabilizing movements, as well as completing movements. Research from the National Parkinson Foundation has shown that neurological physical therapy provides effective treatment for Parkinson’s patients at all stages of the disease:
- Before the symptoms of Parkinson’s start showing, neurological physical therapy helps keep patients fit, mobile, and better prepared to take on the symptoms in the future. This type of therapy can even prevent the onset of the symptoms altogether.
- During the time the symptoms first start showing, our therapists can assist the patient in relearning how to walk, rise and sit, as well as perform other basic movements.
- After the symptoms have been successfully treated, neurological physical therapy is used to retain the motor skills that were gained in treatment.

The Alpha-Stim electrotherapy device is a way of immediately treating acute and chronic pain by using pain-free electrical stimulation through two hand-held Smart Probes. This technology can be safely used at the same time as other physical therapy or medication, or by itself.
How Does it Work?
When pain is normally experienced, billions of nerve cells transmit electrochemical signals throughout your body that tell your brain something is painful. The Alpha-Stim medical device utilizes a microcurrent waveform that modulates those electrochemical signals within each cell. To do this, we apply two Smart Probes or attachable electrodes to the effected area that will receive the specific waveform. This modulation of the electrochemical signals will greatly reduce the sensation of pain that a patient might feel.
Note that the Alpha-Stim device also has the option to provide Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES). This type of therapeutic stimulation has been shown to greatly reduce the symptoms of depression, insomnia, and anxiety, all of which can accompany pain.
It might seem like the technology is too good to be true, but researchers have provided a significant amount of proof of the safety and effectiveness of Alpha-Stim electrotherapy. If you are in need of advanced pain relief, this medical breakthrough might be able to dramatically improve your life and ability to manage pain.

Having back and neck pain for a few days can be frustrating. But when the pain lasts for a prolonged period of time, it can seem unbearable to most. If you have chronic back or neck pain, you may find yourself incapable of focusing on even the smallest tasks in your life. At New Beginnings Family Chiropractic, we offer pain relief using nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy to relieve pressure on the discs in your spine.
Come See Us if You Have:
- Back or Neck Pain
- Pain or Tingling extending down the Leg (Sciatica)
- Herniated or Bulging Discs
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Spinal Nerve Root Dysfunction
- Posterior Facet Syndrome (dysfunctional spinal joints)
How Does it Work?
Our office uses a motorized machine to apply traction that gently pulls the spine apart. Doing so relieves pressure from the discs and allows the spine to reposition itself to its natural state. This relieving of pressure also facilitates a healthy influx of blood, water, oxygen, and other fluids so that your discs can heal properly.
Schedule a free consultation to see if our advanced nonsurgical Spinal Decompression technology is a viable option for your condition.

This is a really great place for moms as they have a playroom for the kids and all the staff are very kid friendly. And I love the massage pods! Sometimes I come just for those!
I have been going here since I was pregnant with my first child. I definitely think it helped with both my pregnancies! Both births went very well.
I love everyone here. My family and I come here for physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, and therapeutic massage. We have had a wonderful experience with Dr. Yang, Dr. Upchurch, and Dr. Hayes.
My first consultation was yesterday. The front desk person is Tosha and she was so friendly and informative. After Tosha gave me a tour of their super cute office, Dr. Upchurch did a complete exam and adjustment. Dr. Upchurch is so sweet and I look forward to my next appointment when she will give me the game plan for my treatment.
