Manipulation Techniques

This is the traditional high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) manipulation that often results in an audible "pop," as chiropractors use their hands to apply a controlled force to a joint while the body is positioned in a specific way.

This technique is also known as spinal decompression, this is a gentle adjustment that is designed to adjust vertebrae, decompress lumbar discs and stretch soft tissues with a series of repetitive movements utilizing a specialized Chiropractic Table.

Using a specialized table with different sections that can be raised and dropped in accordance with the localization of the spinal adjustment, the doctor can mobilize joints with less force then the traditional diversified procedure.

Soft Tissue Techniques

Active Release Technique is a patented soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.

Tissue Mobilization is a form of manual therapy where the Chiropractor uses hands-on techniques on your muscles, ligaments and fascia with the goal of breaking adhesions, and restoring / improving soft tissue function and range of motion.

The Graston Technique is an innovative, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to detect and effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions, as well as maintain optimal range of motion.

Additional Techniques and Treatments

With this technique patients are taught simple yet effective exercises that can be performed at home using simple tools like dumbbells, exercise bands / tubing, Swiss ball and even at home items. The result is exercises that feel good, are cost effective, time efficient and still produce great results.

Acupuncture, simply stated, is a health science, which is used to successfully treat both pain and dysfunction in the body. At first glimpse, Acupuncture appears strange, as its primary notoriety is the utilization of needles placed in the skin at various locations to relieve pain or affect a body part. Needling the acupuncture points helps to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. This stimulation boosts your body's natural painkillers and increases blood flow. Acupuncture can also be used mainly to relieve discomfort associated with a variety of conditions other than muscle/ joint pain including: Fibromyalgia, Headaches, Infertility issues, Addiction, and Menstrual cramps.

Electrical Stimulation is administered via adhesive pads placed on the skin. It can directly block transmission of pain signals along nerves. In addition, electrical stimulation has been shown to promote the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers produced by the body.

Intersegmental Joint Traction is a procedure that uses a specialized table to put passive motion into the spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints and increasing mobility. Intersegmental traction helps to gently and effectively reestablish normal range of motion.

Kinesiology Taping is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It is Latex-free and wearable for days at a time. It successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions.
