Chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which trained specialists (chiropractors) use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. The goal of chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation, is to correct structural alignment and improve your body's physical function.
Active Release Technique
ART® is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
Therapeutic and Corrective Exercise
Corrective Exercise is a method of exercise programming unlike any other. It begins with a detailed analysis of the physical structure of the body. The analysis will determine if there are any imbalances or deficits that may affect performance. The analysis is followed by the development of a very specific corrective exercise and flexibility program that will help correct the body’s structure and restore it back to normal.
Movement patterns start in the brain, and therefore chiropractic therapies must focus on everything that contributes to movement—not just the muscular system, but the nervous system, too. We will go through a series of steps throughout your assessment;
- Identify the affected structures
- Determine changes in motion patterns
- Determine affected kinetic chains
- Apply corrective treatment, exercise, and motor control protocols
Instrument Soft Tissue Mobilization
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization or Simply IASTM is a new range of tool which enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction. It is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that detect and treat fascial restrictions, encourage rapid localization and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis, chronic inflammation, or degeneration.
The list of kinesiology tape benefits is so extensive and so varied, it has earned the nickname “magic tape.” It has become one of the most widely-used therapeutic modalities in both athletic and healthcare settings.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrotherapy can cover a wide range of treatments that involve electricity used as a therapeutic tool to help heal the body. Primarily, it is the use of an electrical current to stimulate nerves and muscles through the skin in order to provide a measure of pain relief. Electrotherapy stimulates muscles and nerves to improve function, and has the therapeutic benefit of relaxing tissues to bring about alleviation of pain.
Acupuncture & Cupping Therapy
Acupuncture is an organized system of diagnosis and treatment that entails stimulating certain points on the body to alleviate pain, assist recovery from injury, decrease stress and inflammation, or to help treat a wide range of health conditions. Needling may be performed locally to the pain, other areas of the body, with or without electrical stimulation, all decided upon on a case-by-case basis.
Acupuncture is linked to the belief that pain and disease is caused by disruptions to the circulation of electricity (nervous system) and blood (vascular system) in the body. Acupuncture needles stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system and relaxes the vascular system and soft tissue to release this disruption, bringing relief to the system.
Cupping therapy is a form of myofascial release practiced worldwide. Using glass or plastic "cups", a suction is created on the skin, opening compressed soft tissue and allowing free flow of blood and body fluids. Cupping is used for many purposes including the treatment of pain and tension, inflammation, affected blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and facial rejuvenation.
