What is physical therapy?
Physical therapy is a treatment of disease, injury, or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat treatment, and exercise rather than by drugs or surgery. When you have a soft tissue injury, it can be hard to do mundane tasks on a day to day basis. You may need Physical Therapy. Often times, there is a long wait to see a physical therapist. However, some chiropractors are trained to do the same therapies in addition to chiropractic treatment. You can get both at the same place.
If you have recently had surgery, we can help with that as well. Whiplash and arthritis can also be aided by the use of Physical Therapy. Physical Therapy can be used as a stand alone treatment or it can be used with our many other services and treatments.
Here at Spennetta Family Care Chiropractic we will evaluate your symptoms and put you on a plan that includes but not limited to: spinal decompression therapy, cold laser therapy, ultrasound, electric muscle stimulation therapy, traction therapy, stretching, core exercises, weight lifting, and walking. We can help you find the right therapy to help you get better faster.

Meet Dr. Spennetta
I was born and raised in the Greater Madison area. After suffering a whiplash injury at only 11 years of age, I started suffering daily migraine headaches. They continued for two years until I finally tried chiropractic care. Amazed by the results, I made a decision to become a Chiropractic Doctor and help as many people as I could to live better lives without pain. Graduating “cum laude” from Palmer College of Chiropractic, I moved to Oshkosh where my Chiropractic care practice was largely pediatric. I love working with kids. They are always full of energy and respond quickly to treatment.
Being a tremendous fan and supporter of the UW Badgers (Football & Basketball) programs our family longed to move back to Madison, Wisconsin. In 1994, I took over a practice on Madison’s Westside in a newly expanding but growing area to serve the Verona, Fitchburg, Middleton and the Madison communities. Using professional and time proven options to traditional, costly healthcare (that focuses on symptoms), I work to correct the cause of the problems. I moved back to Madison and took over a chiropractic practice on the southwest side, where I have been helping people for over 20 years. It has been a blessing to see and help so many people with so many stories and so many problems. In addition, I have seen people stop using wheelchairs, kids who have been bed wetting for over 10 years stopped after only a few chiropractic treatments, babies stop being colicky, dizziness away with only one treatment, debilitating carpel tunnel and bulging disc pain vanish. I have never forgotten why I got into chiropractic. I have a passion for helping people involved in car accidents or with whiplash. Also, I have personally evaluated over 1200 separate people following their recent car accidents, and many thousands more for other aches and pains.
Consumer’s Research Council of America has selected me as one of the “America’s Top Chiropractors” in spinal trauma ten times, and I have received the Outstanding Achievement Award from the Whiplash Resource Network.
