The following are just a few of the many services and specialities we offer at Herner Chiropractic:
Spinal adjustments restore normal mobility to each spinal segment (vertebra), allowing for improved posture, increasing flexibility, and alleviating nerve compression and irritation. We utilize a variety of adjustment procedures in our office, ranging from the traditional high velocity low amplitude adjustment technique, to gentle non-force techniques. Whether you like a traditional touch or a gentle one, we personalize our treatment to suit your comfort level.
Due to the continuous compressive forces of gravity on our bodies, coupled with specific injury, or age related degeneration, there are conditions that arise that can be resolved with spinal decompression. In our clinic we utilized a table that not only produces decompression in a straight plane, but we are able to traction and decompress the spine coupled with side bending and rotation components. This procedure is a slow and controlled non-force technique that is extremely effective in resolving the painful symptoms, such as sciatica, that are related to disc protrusions, and degenerative disc disease.
Graston Technique is an evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and restrictions that affect normal function. Graston is commonly used to treat both acute and chronic conditions including plantar fasciitis, tendinitis and trigger points.
Nerve Conduction Velocity
Nerve conduction velocity is an important aspect of nerve conduction studies. It is the speed at which an electrochemical impulse propagates down a neural pathway. This testing is used to rule out pinched nerves from conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, disc herniations, arthritis and stenosis
Kinesio Tape is the original and authentic elastic therapeutic tape, used by chiropractors, physical therapists and other licensed health professionals to treat a variety of muscle, joint and rehabilitative conditions. Kinesio Taping® Method is practiced worldwide and is respected and utilized by patients, athletes and therapists.
Custom Foot Orthotics
Foot orthoses (also known as “orthotics”) are custom foot supports. They are designed to fit your feet more efficiently than over-the-counter (OTC) arch supports, and balance the biomechanical inadequacies of your feet and legs. I feel most people should try OTC arch supports first, but like a bell-shaped curve, they will match some peoples’ arches, and for others the support may be too high or low, or too far back or forward.
