Chiropractic adustments address skeletal misalignments that can occur from trauma or repetitive stress. In order to realign a spinal or extremity joint, a variety of gentle techniques can be utilized including Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson and Activator.
Manual therapy is used to break up adhesions and spasms that occur within the muscle and fascia in order to alleviate pain and increase range of motion. Through the use of deep tissue and trigger point therapy, there is an increase in blood and lymphatic flow, as well as a decrease in scar tissue formation.
Electrical muscle stimulation is a modality that sends small electrical current to specific tissue in order to stimulate muscles and nerves. It is found useful for both acute and chronic conditions with the purpose of alleviating pain, decreasing muscle spasm, improving circulation to injured tissues and reeducating muscles.
Ultrasound utilizes sound waves to increase heat to injured tissues, enhance blood flow, and increase extensibility of collagen. The effects of ultrasound can be seen in a variety of patients who suffer from post-traumatic to repetitive stress injuries. The end result provides faster healing time with less pain and muscle spasm.
Individually designed exercises are utilized to help strengthen and correct the patient's own unique problem. Improper repetitive use can lead to an imbalance in muscles and connective tissue. By implementing exercises that can be easily done in home, the patient is able to retrain muscles and stay healthier longer.
