SMART Sessions – Pain and Injury Rapid Rehab
Skeletal Muscular Assistive and Rehabilitative Therapy
A SMART Session (Skeletal Muscular Assistive and Rehabilitative Therapy) is an intensive therapy that uses the best tools in the chiropractic treatment toolbox. SMART Sessions are designed to accelerate your body’s ability to heal following pain or trauma, with effective, lasting results.
Physical Rehabilitation Sessions: SMART Session Overview
1. Warm Up
Start off with 8-10 minutes of aerobic warm-up exercises to get blood flowing across the body.
2. Graston Technique
Then, 15 minutes of the Graston Technique® using instruments to break up adhesions and loosen scar tissue.
3. Functional and Rehab Exercises
Next, do guided injury-specific exercises and stretches established by the doctor.
4. Manual Therapy
This 15-minute hands-on therapy precisely targets soft tissue areas causing specific pain or mobility issues.
5. Chiropractic Adjustment
Adjustments are done to correct joint restrictions and improve biomechanics.
6. Cold Laser
3 minutes of cold laser in the affected area penetrates the upper layers of tissue and accelerates healing.
7. Kinesio Taping
Finish with a taping to support and stabilize muscles during healing.

How much does a SMART session cost?
Price transparency isn’t too common in healthcare. We’re trying to change that.
While co-pays, out-of-pocket premiums, and insurance deductibles vary from one patient to another (and can be daunting), we’ll do our best to give you an estimated cost before treatment. We understand that no one likes surprises!
Our doctors will work with you and provide a recommended treatment protocol based on your specific needs. Pro-Care SMART Sessions are intended to provide you a customized, one-on-one treatment protocol for your injury to get you feeling better fast with sustained results.
