Our office provides a variety of techniques to suit each individual patient including:
Diversified uses our hands to adjust the specific joints that aren't moving properly. This creates an increase in range of motion, and a decrease in inflammation.
Drop Table uses a special table with pieces that gently drop underneath the patient. This allows joints to move during an adjustment with less force from diversified adjusting.
Instrument Assisted uses an adjusting instrument to create a gentle adjustment through specific joints that aren't moving correctly.
Webster Technique is a specific adjusting technique for pregnant women which balances the pelvis.
Therapies are great for aiding in your adjustments, reducing muscular tension, spasm, inflammation, and helping speed up the healing process. These include:
Hot Therapy uses moist heat packs to relax muscles and flush nutrients to specific areas in the body.
Cold Therapy uses ice packs to decrease inflammation through areas that are inflamed and painful.
Soft Tissue Therapy consists of using our hands or our instrument to work on muscles that are in spasm, muscles that are hypertonic or tight, or muscles that have trigger points. Soft tissue therapy allows the muscles to relax creating an environment that helps aid the adjustment, as well as speeding up the healing process.
These are beneficial for getting you back to your life outside of our office. These include:
Home Care Recommendations include proper lifting, sitting, and sleeping techniques that are easy to implement, and help speed up the healing process. These also help prevent further episodes and problems in the future.
Individualized Stretches and Exercises are given to get you back to your life that you want to live. The adjustments are just one piece in the puzzle. After we get your spine moving properly, we need to stretch and strengthen the muscles to prevent future episodes.
Ergonomic and Lifestyle Advice can be given on a personal basis for your work environment, home environment, or even when you are on the go.
Fascial Taping using RockTape can be used to aid the adjustments, create blood flow to specific areas allowing for a nutrient rich environment to heal, or can be used for conditions like edema and swelling to speed up the process of healing.
Rehabilitation Exercises are a great 'in office' way to correct biomechanics for a more balanced life for years to come. It's hard to change your body's adaptations, if you don't have someone trained in correcting the problems. Our team is trained in looking at posture and biomechanics to balance and correct the body.
