We are Chiropractic Physicians by professional title. What we do is help people who are frustrated with pain and injury slowing them down, concerned they may not get their lifestyle back.
At REACH Rehab + Chiropractic Performance Center, providing chiropractic services to active professionals in Plymouth and the western suburbs of Detroit, we know you are not ready to compromise what you want to do in life because of the pain of injuries, conditions, or perceived physical limitations.
We have a specialized focus on short-term care for back, neck pain, shoulder, and other musculoskeletal pain. Working together, we will empower you to make informed decisions regarding your physical health so you can return to your active lifestyle. Additionally, we arm you with the education and tools to understand and manage your problem, reduce the risk of injury reoccurrence, and improve performance.
Back pain is the most common complaint we treat. More than 80 percent of Americans experience back pain at some point in their lifetime. For many, the effect of back pain is an everyday battle which immensely impacts the quality of life. The pain we feel — whether in the back, the hip(s), or down the leg(s) — is the body’s request for change, not an indication something is broken, needing to be “fixed.”
Neck pain is the second most common complaint we treat. Most neck pain is overwhelmingly the result of poor postural habits and lifting strategies. The pain we feel — whether in the neck, the shoulder(s), or down the arm(s) — is the body’s request for change, not an indication something is broken, needing to be “fixed.”
Shoulder pain is the third most common complaint we treat. Though the pain is felt in the shoulder girdle region, more times than not, the cause is not of the shoulder itself, or there’s a secondary contributor to the problem! The pain we feel is the body’s request for change, not an indication something is broken, needing to be “fixed.”
The knee does what the foot will allow and the hip cannot control. What this means is that non-traumatic knee pain is often not an underlying knee problem. You can have a hurt knee, and there may be an issue within the knee joint that needs to be addressed, but finding why there’s a knee problem in the first place is most important in regard to returning to optimal function.
According to the World Health Organization, 50 to 75% of people have had a headache in the last year. Not only are headaches common, an inconvenience, and uncomfortable, but they can be debilitating. Negatively impacting a normal lifestyle, headaches can diminish production, performance, and mood; and escalate irritability, stress, and absence of daily activity.
“I’ve been a patient of Dr. RJ Burr for over a year. As a competitive powerlifter (2015 APF national champion, raw 220 weight class) I frequently stress my body to its limits and occasionally beyond. Dr. Burr’s methodical approach allows us to identify imbalances that lead to those injuries, so that I can adjust technique accordingly, and continue making forward progress. Unlike traditional chiropractors, RJ will often provide instructions and simple drills to enable me to fix myself, when certain joint dysfunctions return.”
