Chiropractic / Therapies
Chiropractic is a comprehensive health care profession that addresses a wide variety of health related factors impacting upon the human physiology. Chiropractic physicians are broadly educated and extensively trained in evidence based medicine to provide whole health healing to patients. They specialize in natural, non-invasive health care and are trained to use a full range of medical diagnostic tools and a wide array of effective treatment options in the care of their patients.
Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, and respected part of today’s mainstream health care system. Treatments often include spinal adjustments, physiotherapy, nutritional and lifestyle counseling, physical rehabilitation therapy as well as the use of vitamin and other natural herbal / enzyme supplementation to aid in the healing and recovery of the patient.
Electric Muscle Stimulation / Interferential: A special form of electrical current administered in the vicinity of soft tissue injury, especially muscles, for the relief of pain, reduction of swelling, and the release of endorphins and the body’s other natural pain killers.
Ultrasound: A therapeutic treatment using high frequency sound waves administered in the region of soft tissue injuries. It works when sound vibrations as fast as a million times a second penetrate the deep tissues in the body to warm them. These vibrations and heat help break down and disperse unhealthy calcium and other hard tissue accumulations. Most patients will describe a pleasant and relaxing warmth below the surface of the skin during the actual treatment. Ultra sound works by increasing tissue temperature, increasing blood flow, relaxing muscle spasms, massaging of damaged tissues and helping to speed the healing process.
Aqua Massage: A convenient, safe, and comfortable form of massage therapy. Before a typical visit, our patients are offered the opportunity to enjoy a 15-minute session. Performed prior to an adjustment, this unique therapy can relieve muscle soreness, stiffness, and tension, creating a sense of wellbeing.
Graston Technique: Graston Technique® is an instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization therapy technique that enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique uses specially-designed stainless steel instruments, along with appropriate therapeutic exercise, to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. The instruments also are used diagnostically to follow the kinetic chain, to locate and treat the cause of the symptom as well as the specific area of pain.
