Chiropractic adjusting or manipulation is a high velocity, low amplitude thrust used to restore proper alignment and function to joints. Adjusting can increase flexibility, promote functional healing, control scar tissue, reverse effects of adhesions, release entrapped meniscoids, unlock intra-articular adhesions, decrease nerve compression, increase blood flow, minimize or prevent DJD, improve nutrients to joints.
This includes Interferential Current (IFC), and Micro-current. Electrical Muscle Stimulation has been shown to relax muscles, reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and promote tissue healing.
Also known as low level light therapy- Cold laser uses a safe, low powered laser to release energy in the form of a photon which has been shown to help decrease pain and increase wound healing.
Ultrasound is acoustical energy that can cause an increase in the following: tissue temperature, tissue metabolism, blood flow, membrane permeability, enzyme activity, collagen and tissue extensibility. Each of these may speed up healing time. Ultrasound has also been shown to decrease pain and relax tight muscles.
Kinesiology taping provides support & stability for muscles, joints, and tendons without limiting range of motion like a traditional brace.
Instrument assisted massage has been used for many years and has many different techniques. It has been shown to: release fascial adhesions, break down collagen cross-links, stretch muscles and connective tissues, change chronic muscle holding patterns, increase blood flow to an area (aiding in healing), and allow scar tissue to heal properly.
Combining chiropractic with massage therapy can help balance the body. When your muscles are too tight, they pull your bones out of alignment. Chiropractic paired with massage therapy aims to relax the patient and restore balance in the musculoskeletal system.
