Why is chiropractic care essential to my health?
The nervous system in the body, which coordinates all pain signals, is centered in the spinal cord. Several instances of chronic pain in the back and neck can be attributed to misalignment in the spine. Chiropractic care can mechanically correct the root of the problem, without needing medication to dull the sensation of aches or soreness.
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, tendonitis and trigger points.
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.
OTC arch supports tend to be uniformly bell-shaped; if a person’s arches are too high or low for comfortable fitting, they could consider a custom foot orthoses.
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.
Physical Therapy Modalities
Modalities such as ultrasound, electric stimulation, and traction enhance the treatment of other services such as adjustments and decompression. Ultrasound can help us pinpoint areas for improvement in the back and neck.
Electric stimulation, combined with heat or ice, will ease muscle pain through gentle contractions. Traction is used to treat stiff neck through gentle straightening of the cervical vertebra.
