TECHNIQUES AND THERAPIES USED AT
Activator or Instrument Adjusted:
This techniques involves a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a gentle, low force approach to Chiropractic care. This adjustment restores spinal balance safely and comfortably and is used on patients of all ages.
Manual technique using very precise hands-on thrusts to perform spinal adjustments.
Thompson or Drop Table:
A special table is used that drops about 2 inches. This allows our doctor to apply quick thrusts that accompany the table drop.
Cox Technique or Flexion/Dystraction:
Most widely used approach in treating symptomatic disc injuries involving lower back pain and the often-accompanying leg pain. This involves a specialized table that gently distracts or stretches the spine which allows our doctor to isolate the area of disc involvement while slightly flexing the spine in a pumping rhythm.
Trigger Point Therapy:
A trigger point is an area of uncontrolled muscle tightness which may interfere with normal muscle function, restrict range of motion, weaken the muscle and possibly refer pain to other parts of the body. Trigger point therapy compresses the muscle with sustained pressure, helping to restore normal range of motion and reduce the pain or muscle spasms in the hypersensitive muscles.
In addition to spinal care, our doctor treats all joint pain or issues. He can adjust feet, knees, wrists, shoulders, sinuses, and TMJ just to name a few.
This therapy induces passive motion into the spine for stretching spinal joints and increasing mobility; thereby helping to gently and effectively reestablish normal range of motion to your spine.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation:
This technique uses tiny electrical impulses to contract muscles. The benefits of this technique includes helping improve muscle function, decreasing pain and promoting healing.
Manual - Performed by the doctor using his hands.
Mechanical - Performed with a machine to provide traction force.
