He boasts a proven track record of speedily restoring his patients' health, surprising them with how swiftly they experience relief from their discomfort.

"How do Dr. Phelts' patients recover so speedily and maintain their improved health?" You may wonder.

The Key to Accelerated Recovery: A Comprehensive Approach

Let's explore this with an example. Consider a sprained ankle - a commonplace injury. Dr. Phelts understands that such an injury extends beyond the strained or sprained ligaments or muscles.

A joint, such as the ankle, comprises two bones bound together by ligaments and maneuvered by muscles. Ligaments prevent joint dislocation while muscles enable joint movement. Therefore, true recovery must entail more than simply strengthening the muscles surrounding the joint. It also necessitates the optimization of the bones' alignment - muscles function optimally when this alignment is correct. Likewise, ligaments bear less stress and cause less pain when the bones are well-aligned.

Let's not forget about the nerves, either. These vital structures instruct the muscles and therefore, must also be addressed. Pressure or inflammation on a nerve can negatively impact the associated muscle. Acknowledging this, Dr. Phelts' holistic technique addresses the ligaments, bones, muscles, and nerves concurrently. This integrated approach contributes to faster healing and swift pain relief.
