Spinal Adjustments & Manipulations
Spinal Adjustments and Manipulations help the body by reducing misalignments in ones spine, through applying a high velocity, low force, controlled thrust to the joints in the spine. This method decreases inflammation, relieves pain and improves mobility and body function. Spinal manipulations help reduce pain for conditions such as sciatica, lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other painful conditions. Adjustments do not hurt and can help improve one’s health even if they don’t have an injury.
Chiropractic Massage Therapy
Chiropractic Massage Therapy helps the body by applying pressure to the body’s tendons and muscles. This reduces inflammation and improves body function which helps the central nervous system (brain and spine) to better communicate with the body. Chiropractic massages are usually given after Chiropractic adjustments.
Ultrasound Therapy helps relieve stiffness, soreness and pain for injured or overworked muscles, tendons and soft tissue. The ultrasound Machine produces sound-waves that create ultrasonic vibrations targeting the pained area. These ultrasonic vibrations move at a million times per second, creating heat in the injured area. This accelerates the healing process by breaking up scar tissue and drawing blood to the nerves. The machine starts at a low frequency and slowly moves up to a therapeutic level. The treatment lasts between 8-10 minutes a session.
Electrical Stimulation Therapy
Electrical Stimulation Therapy strengthens the rehabilitation process by sending electric currents through the muscles causing them to contract. Repetitive muscle contractions improves blood flow, strengthens muscle tone and reduces swelling in the injured area. Electrical Stimulation Therapy can slow muscle atrophy, release muscle tension and strengthening the connection between muscle movement and the central nervous systems.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal Decompression Therapy utilizes a traction table or similar motorized device to stretch the spine to relieve back or leg pain. This process creates negative intradiscal pressure to retract and reposition herniated, degenerated or bulging discs to improves the healing process. Producing lower pressure causes an influx of healing nutrients and other substances into the disc.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrical Muscle Stimulation helps the body by sending electrical pulses through a patient’s body, contracting sore muscles, stopping muscle spasms and releasing endorphins. Endorphins naturally increase blood flow and relieve pain which speeds up the healing process. Electrical Muscle Stimulations is often used to treat; sport and auto injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic pain in joints and muscles, chronic headaches, fibromyalgia arthritis pain.
Therapeutic Exercise is the use of exercise to manage nerve or muscle pain. Cardiovascular, aerobic, and strengthening exercises combined with chiropractic care can improve digestion, keep muscles toned, improve circulation and manage acute and chronic pain. Chiropractors guide patients in their exercise journey, giving specific exercise and nutrition plans with the goal of reducing pain and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Custom Foot Orthotics
The position in which one stands, walks or runs often affects their lower extremities’, lumbar spine, and pelvic balance. A leg or foot misalignment, arch collapse, foot over-pronation, and other symptoms can interfere with the spinal function, causing lower back problems. Adjusting one’s foot movement can help fix any of those problems. Orthotics can help make the right chiropractic adjustment to relieve stress in the leg, hip, pelvis, or lower back.
