Here is a list of services we offer at our office.
The application of cold or ice used to compress and reduce swelling in the tissues. Surface cooling restricts blood flow, numbs painful areas, and relaxes muscle spasms.
Applying moist heat to your body increases blood flow to the tissues, improves joint function, and increases metabolism. When a muscle tissue relaxes joint and muscle function improves. This therapy can also increase blood and lymph circulation.
Interferential therapy is a treatment to aid in the relief of pain and the promotion of soft tissue healing. Waves of electrical impulses intersect below the skin surface and prompt the body to secrete endorphins and other natural pain killers.
A chiropractic adjustment is a specific force applied in a specific direction to normalize the nervous system and spinal dysfunction.
Ultrasound is used as a therapeutic treatment for soft tissue injuries. Sound waves penetrate the deep tissues in the body breaking up scar tissue and giving the patient a warm relaxing feeling. It also works great on the bursal tissues of the body.
A trigger point is an area of uncontrolled muscle tightness or lactic acid deposits. This tenderness can interfere with normal muscle function causing weakness and loss of range of motion. Myofascial release is a highly effective way to reduce muscle spasm and relax a hyperactive muscle.
Introducing a passive wave of motion into the spine of a patient is a great way to prepare for a spinal adjustment. Most patients find this relaxing and therapeutic as motion re-enters their spine.
Every patient must participate in some form of rehabilitation. Spinal exercises and strengthening are important for maintaining your spine between adjustments.
We have an on-site x-ray facility to handle your radiographic examination in the office. The importance of a visual guide of your subluxation compounded with other findings can make your care more precise.
“Ouch!” That first step can be painful in the morning. Stretching of the soft tissue on the underside of the foot can place extreme pressure on the rear foot bone causing a heel spur and/or a condition of plantar fasciitis. The stretching of the soft tissue can contribute to an uneven walking foundation and fallen arches, causing a compensatory reaction traveling up your body often resulting in knee, hip, and low back pain.
Chiropractic recognizes this uneven gait and wear and tear of your feet and it’s a contribution to spinal subluxation. Your chiropractor will prescribe custom fit orthotics to help relieve the pressure on the foot arch and stabilize your gait and posture helping you to achieve greater levels of health and wellness.
Laser therapy is a new innovative treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This non-surgical alternative to ending wrist pain is now available. The therapy is precise, accurate and non-invasive and offers safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of other conditions, including strains, sprains and trigger points.
Physiological effects of Low-Level Laser Therapy include bio-stimulation, improved blood circulation, pain relief, anti-inflammatory effects and stimulation of wound healing. Additional benefits include increased speed of tissue repair, stimulation of the immune system, stimulation of nerve function and reduction of inflammation.
Kinesio Taping is a technique based on the body’s own natural healing process. This Kinesio Taping exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically stems from the science of Kinesiology, hence the name “Kinesio”. Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms.
