We provide diverse treatments for a variety of conditions. We see patients with chronic complaints as well as acute injuries. We’re not just “back doctors.” We address problems throughout the body, from the little toe all the way up to the jaw! Specific treatment plans are geared to each patient’s individual needs.
ADJUSTING: A primary tool is chiropractic adjusting, which encourages joints to move well. We draw from multiple types of adjusting, both by hand as well as other gentle methods whenever needed. We use mostly diversified adjusting technique, which draws from many styles of chiropractic, gleaning some the most effective components. We also use drop table, flexion-distraction, “activator” and gentle mobilization.
ANCILLARY TREATMENTS: Prior to performing adjustments to the joints, we first work to relax the muscles around them. If the patient isn’t getting massage, we’ll often use a combination of hot packs and electrotherapy. This is a popular treatment, as it is very comfortable and relaxing.
GRASTON TECHNIQUE: Sometimes, when a body has been injured, either through an accident or chronic use, scar tissue builds up in connective tissue, decreasing mobility and causing pain. Graston serves to free up connective tissue of the body by breaking up scar tissue. Graston treatment is brief and simple and speeds healing, increases mobility and decreases pain.
MASSAGE: We offer therapeutic and deep tissue massage at our clinic, and some health insurance companies cover massage. Our therapists provide a warm and relaxing environment with individualized treatment emphasizing areas that are in particular need. For many patients, the combination of chiropractic with massage is perfect for what ails them. We offer half hour, hour, and hour and a half massages. Our therapists are trained in multiple techniques, including cranio-sacral, deep tissue, post-injury and relaxation massage.
REHABILITATION EXERCISES: We utilize tailored exercise plans for most of our patients, designed to improve their unique conditions. We know that our patients have busy lives and try to give brief, simple exercises that will make a difference. We will talk you through your exercises as well as give you a detailed handout to take home. Some of the most common exercise plans that we employ are postural improvement exercises and core muscle strengthening.
OTHER TREATMENTS: We also provide a variety of other treatment types. We utilize therapeutic ultrasound as well as cold laser treatments. Both encourage healing of damaged tissues. There is some exciting new research available about cold laser. It is the only therapy which has been found to directly make cells work faster, literally speeding healing time. There are a number of conditions that studies show laser treatments work for and we have seen some great results in our own clinic.
