How Will Our Doctors Adjust and Care for You?
Our Doctors are accomplished at many techniques from traditional "hands on" adjusting to a very gentle light force instrument known as the "Activator". Spinal adjustments are the cornerstone of the chiropractic health care industry and the goal for each of our patients is to restore proper movement and function of your spine and joints. There are 132 joints in your spine and when they are not moving properly they affect the surrounding tissues and spinal nerves which cause inflammation, decreased function and pain where nerves extend to.
During the report of findings we will go over the results of any x-rays and tests to determine where the problems are and make the necessary adjustments with any of several different techniques (as described below) in order to restore proper function and healing.
- Manual Full Spine Hands on Adjustments: Chiropractic adjustments started with hands on manipulation which is usually pain free and very productive at restoring spinal joints to their proper function. This technique involves a gentle but firm pressure to an area and restores it to its original and natural position.
- Activator: A hand held low force instrument used to help restore spinal balance in a safe and comfortable manner.
- Cox Flexion Decompression: A technique used for the lower spine (Lumbar) which uses a special table to pull the bulging disc(s) away from the spinal cord.
- Arthro Stim: Electronic handheld spring floating device used to deliver a percussive force by increasing or decreasing pressure to align the spine, extremities and joints.
- Sacro-Occipital Technique: A series of different size blocks used to properly align the spine using no force.
- Thompson Drop Technique: A spring loaded table used to move certain spinal segments that will help improve the areas being adjusted without additional force being used.
- Extremity Adjusting: Extremity adjusting can help alleviate pain and help with the function of the whole body to include the ribs, shoulders, wrist, elbows, hips, knees, feet, fingers, toes and ankles and TMJ problems.
- Intersegmental Traction Table, AKA "The Rolling Table": Gently reestablishing the normal ranges of the spine, intersegmental traction tables are also used to help bring about muscle relaxation and the reduction of muscle spasms. Using a dual roller which moves up and down, the muscles on either side of the spine are stimulated. Extremely relaxing, the "rolling table" works wonders for healing.
Recently some media attention has been given to certain risks that come from chiropractic neck manipulation techniques. We hope the following infograph puts some of those concerns to rest, but if you still have questions about the safety of any technique we use, please do ask. Your safety and comfort level with our services is our #1 priority.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and to reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
Chiropractors use many different treatments to help you heal your body and to get you on the right track for a healthy and pain-free lifestyle. We offer different therapies to help you with treatments and to help your doctor easily and comfortably deliver chiropractic adjustments needed such as:
EMS(Electro-Muscle Stimulation): EMS is a popular, effective, and safe method for of muscle stimulation. It is used for sports training, muscle atrophy or injury rehabilitation, and for cosmetic appearance improvement of muscles. EMS works by generating impulses of current which are delivered through electrodes directly onto the skin the proximity of the muscle to be stimulated. By mimicking the normal impulses created via the central nervous system, EMS causes muscles to contract, thus generating muscle memory and use. Electro-Muscle Stimulation has been cited often in recent years by sport scientists, trainers, and coaches as a complimentary technique for traditional sports training.
Ultrasound: A form of deep heat therapy which is used to speed up the healing process by relaxing muscle spasms, increasing the blood flow, to help in massaging damage to tissues when the high frequency sound waves are administered to a particular area.
Ice and Heat Therapy: Cryo-therapy (cold) is used for swelling, inflammation and to treat many painful conditions after injury. Heat is used to increase circulation and relax muscles. Sometimes heat and ice are used together depending on the condition of the patient.
Myofascial Release: A very effective hands-on technique that provides stretching and sustained pressure into restricted fascia to eliminate pain and restore motion to restricted tissue.Learn more about myofascial release here: Myofascial Release
Cold Laser treatment, also known as "low-level-laser-therapy", or "LLLT", is a form of pain therapy that is administered by a qualified therapist or doctor. Typical uses include treatment for back pain, muscle spasms, arthritis pain, elbow pain, muscle strain, and many other conditions.
