The Chiropractic Adjustment

The infamous chiropractic adjustment is not always the answer but is useful in many conditions when applied appropriately. The adjustment is a high-velocity but low-depth thrust into a restricted segment in the spine (neck or back) or an extremity (arms, legs, feet, hips). The adjustment is also a neurological reset that increases the brain’s awareness of the adjusted area and decreases pain sensation. The adjustment is safe and effective.

After years of research, there appear to be only significant complications in one in 3.7 million patients being treated for disc herniation and 6 in 100,000 for cervical spine adjustments.

If you are nervous about being adjusted, let the Doctor know, and other tools can be used!  Either way, you will be screened first to ensure the adjustment is safe and necessary for your case.

Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is a necessary component in most patient treatment. In this office, rehabilitation is used to heal from injuries, prepare the body for new activities, deal with the stresses on the body in daily life, and prevent future aches and pains. Usually, rehabilitation just looks like movements and simple exercises. Rather than have you come into the office several times a week, most of the rehabilitation is sent home for you to perform between visits. This will keep you accountable for your recovery!

Most importantly, it is used to help make you BULLET PROOF. You should feel confident in your body’s ability to perform any activity you want to participate in. The strength, control, and body awareness you gain from rehabilitation will help you reach and maintain your health goals for extended periods of time, so come get started today!

 

One of the best treatments for any condition that involves pain is exercise. Research shows time and time again that exercise helps to decrease pain and increase functioning. So stop saying you’ll exercise “next week” and come in to start planning your exercise journey.

Soft Tissue Mobilization

Soft tissues are affected in many conditions and therefore need to be treated. These tissues are often spasming or hypertonic in response to other underlying conditions. These soft tissues include muscles, ligaments, nerves, and tendons and are treated in various ways. If the condition is a new injury, such as a neck injury from whiplash or a new back injury from lifting, electrotherapy and heat may be utilized. Electrotherapy is utilized in the office to decrease pain in acute situations and is paired with heat to increase blood flow.

 

Once the acute stage has passed and pain becomes chronic, therapies targeted at soft tissues include more direct methods such as manual massage, active release of muscles with movement, and tool therapy. All of these are used in the office when applicable and appropriate for your case.
