Also known as joint manipulation and mobilization, are used to restore motion in restricted joints throughout the spine and extremities. When the doctor applies a force into a restricted joint, they can increase range of motion, decrease pain, and help relax over-acting muscles.
Myofascial release is a safe and effective hands-on soft tissue technique used to treat sore, tight, and overused muscles. Myofascial release can help increase mobility of muscles and fascia, provide sensory input to reduce pain, and increase range of motion.
McKenzie Method, also known as Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT), is a system to classifying and treating spine and extremity pain. Utilizing end-range loading with repetitive motion, MDT is commonly used for treating herniated discs, radiating symptoms (numbness, tingling) and many more musculoskeletal conditions.
Dry Needling involves the insertion of a thin filament needle into the soft tissue for the purpose of reducing muscle spasm, trigger points, and to decrease pain. The goal of dry needling is to create a local twitch response which is both diagnostic and therapeutic, as it is the first step in breaking the pain cycle.
Research shows that patients with chronic pain improve faster when you combine chiropractic care with exercise. In addition to passive treatments, patients will demonstrate in the clinic (or take home) corrective exercises to help facilitate healing and recovery time. Active treatment may consist of resistance bands, kettlebells, or body weight movements.
Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) is a systematic approach to finding the root cause of pain and dysfunction. The SFMA is used to assess range of motion and movement patterns throughout the body to gain a better understanding of each patient’s condition. Utilizing the SFMA with every patient to help highlight each patient underlying movement dysfunction and source of pain
IASTM is a technique that can be used in several ways to help decrease pain and improve function by helping release tight muscles and fascia. This treatment uses a stainless-steel tool rather than the provider’s hands and can increase mobility, improve blood flow, and decrease pain to improve motion throughout the body.
Kinesiology Tape can be used in the clinic to subconsciously enhance performance, control and prevent injury, and improve postural strain. Kinesio Tape works by providing sensory feedback to the nervous system and the surrounding tissues, stimulating blood flow, and helping to decrease pain.
