As one of the most common chiropractic procedures, diversified manipulation is used to treat a variety of pain sources throughout the body. Our professionals take extreme care during this technique to restore and improve joint mobility and to reduce pain.
Drop Table Treatments
Ideal for those who don’t particularly like the popping sound that comes from some chiropractic techniques, the drop table gives the same effect as a regular chiropractic treatment but provides a much more gentle adjustment.
During activator treatments, your chiropractor uses a small tool to deliver a gentle impulse to the spine with the ultimate goal of restoring motion to the targeted vertebra or joint.
Used to treat symptoms of the lower spine, flexion distraction is a non-surgical technique used to increase spinal motion and resolve disc bulges and herniations. This safe and gentle treatment is ideal for relieving pressure on injured or dysfunctional spinal nerves.
Intersegmental traction helps to reestablish normal range of motion to the spine. Most of our patients find this type of treatment relaxing and helpful. The goal of treatment is to improve mobility by stretching ligaments and muscles. Patients report reduced muscle spasms and spinal pain, increased flexibility, better balance and more strength after treatment.
- Intersegmental traction tables Mobilizes the spinal column while simultaneously and gently stretching ligaments and muscles.
- Intersegmental traction tables increase blood flow and oxygen to discs, ligaments and muscles, thereby improving balance, strength and mobility.
- Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
During this chiropractic therapy, electrodes placed on the skin, sending light electrical pulses to different areas of the body with the purpose of reducing inflammation, curtailing muscle spasms and relieving back pain. The signals are intended to mimic physical activity making them tighten, just like they would if you were exercising.
Intended to decrease back pain, stiffness and spasms, ultrasound therapies use sound waves to increase blood flow and have been reported to accelerate the healing process.
Intended to reduce swelling and inflammation that has resulted in back pain, cold laser therapy stimulates tissue with low-laser technology, speeding up the healing process in damaged tissue.
Kinesio Taping –
Simple to apply and providing quick results, Kinesio taping is a used to treat everything from headaches to major muscle pain. It allows for full range of motion, which proves especially useful for athletes
As a simple and non-aggressive treatment that assists with soft tissue mobilization, IASTM breaks up tissue, alleviating chronic pain as a result of tightened tissue and muscle. Once our professionals detect the damaged muscles and tissue, a small instrument is used to massage the tissue, stimulating a response, which starts the healing process.
Interferential Current and Tens
An electrotherapy machine (IFC and TENS) delivers low level current to the muscles through the use of electrodes which are placed on the skin in various parts of the body. These electrodes deliver a small electrical impulse to the nerves, causing the muscle to contract. Electrotherapy can assist in reducing acute/chronic muscle pain, tightness and inflammation while increasing blood flow to the injured area. Electrotherapy also triggers the release of endorphins which acts as the body’s natural analgesic.
We are proud to offer services to furry companions as well. As with people, joint and nerve problems can cause tremendous pain to both large and small animals. Veterinary chiropractic care has been shown to be extremely effective, helps avoid invasive surgery and lets pets quickly recover from injury or illness.
