Chiropractic manipulative therapy is used to restore normal joint motion, break up fibrous adhesions within the joints, and break the muscle spasm- pain cycle. Since joints don’t have a good blood supply, the cells that comprise them get their oxygen and nutrients and release their wastes through movement of the fluid within them. This process usually occurs naturally as you move throughout the day. If joints cannot move properly, this process cannot occur and problems such as joint degeneration occur.

The “pop” or cavitation usually associated with a chiropractic adjustment is a good thing. It is caused by gas being released from the joint and fluid being drawn in. When there is an injury to a joint, whether it is from a single injury or from the result of repetitive, small injuries, the muscles around the joint tighten up in an effort to protect it. This compression leads to more pain, which leads to more spasm. Chiropractic adjustments help to end this cycle so that proper movement and healing can occur.

Conditions that may be treated with chiropractic manipulation include:

  • Arthritis
  • Neck and back pain
  • Pelvic pain
  • Sciatica
  • Disc injuries
  • Muscle strain
  • Ligament sprain
  • Facet syndrome
  • Headaches
  • And more…

Muscle Stim

The electrical currents allow the muscles to release tension and stress relieving muscle soreness, tightness and body aches. For joint pains, electric muscle stimulation therapy also may improve joint symptoms as relaxation of the smooth muscles around a painful joint can help foster healing from joint inflammation.

Traction

Chiropractic traction is a widely used treatment for low back pain. By applying force to the patient’s spine through body weight, weights, and/or pulleys, a chiropractor is able to gently stretch the spine and draw apart the vertebrae.

  • Purpose: Chiropractic traction is a therapeutic option for patients who are suffering from cervical, low back, or radiating pain that is caused by bulging or herniated discs or disc degenerative disorder. The aim is to accomplish one or more of the following: pull apart, or distract, the vertebrae; distract and glide the facet joints; widen openings to the spinal canal formed by the vertebrae (also known as the intervertebral foramen); or stretch spinal soft tissue. By widening the space between vertebrae and releasing pressure from the affected disc, pain can be greatly reduced.

Myofascial Release Technique

Chiropractic manipulations help to increase the mobility of restricted joints. Joint restrictions are often related to repetitive activities associated with occupation or hobbies. These activities also stimulate the production of connective tissues in overused muscle groups. Connective tissue fibers prevent muscles from reaching their normal resting length and lead to the production of uncomfortable trigger points or “knots.”

  • Myofascial Release Technique is a form of assisted stretch in which the doctor stabilizes regions of restricted muscle as the muscle is stretched. This technique effectively increases the resting length of muscles and decrease pain associated with repetitive activities.

Therapeutic Exercises

A little knowledge and self -care can go a long way. Patients are given stretches and exercises along the way to aid in the progress of their treatment. They are also educated on the why they should perform these activities. Stretching facilitates proper joint motion and strengthening helps prevent injury.

Low-Level Laser Therapy

All cells in the body have receptors for light. Just like a plant, cells can utilize this light energy to trigger chemical reactions. Low-level laser works on the premise that your body's cells can accept a specific wavelength of light and use it to produce ATP, or energy. This energy is used to stimulate tissue repair, growth, and healing. After all, the more energy that is available, the more efficiently the cells can operate, thus speeding up the healing rate of injuries, improving the blood’s immune response, and increasing oxygen delivery to the cells.

Spinal Decompression

This is a non-surgical, traction based therapy. During the treatment, spinal discs are cycled through a series of computer- controlled distraction and relaxation phases that isolate the problem disc and create a negative pressure, which helps to pull the disc back to where it is supposed to be. This pumping action also helps to bring nutrients into the disc and remove pain-causing chemicals which helps the disc to heal.
