Specific spinal adjustments are a gentle force introduced into a joint that is intended to release it from its abnormal motion and/or position. Chiropractic adjusting emphasizes diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Using the gentlest and specific methods possible, we manipulate the spine and extremities to normalize range of motion and proper biomechanical function.
Addressing joint fixations without concomitant muscle care results in symptom relief that is often short-lived. Chiropractic care is extremely effective when used in conjunction with manual muscle therapy.
Functional And Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation (FAKTR, pronounced “factor”) involves the combination of several different forms of muscle or soft-tissue therapy including manual, the use of hands, to Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). The use of FAKTR has been especially effective in locating and removing myofascial adhesions and scar tissue while combining it with rehabilitation exercises to strengthen the tissues while restrictions are being removed has shown to be extremely effective in speeding the recovery of an injury.
Wear and tear on the body can damage the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Your body responds to this by building scar tissue which, over time, can lead to the formation of adhesions (fibrous areas of scar tissue) that prevent muscles and joints from moving freely, as well as cause significant pain. Adhesions can contribute to the entrapment of nerves or refer pain to other areas of the body.
After evaluating the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves surrounding the area of involvement we apply sustained pressure into the restricted myofascial connective tissue which helps to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Kinesio Tape is a therapeutic procedure using special tape to help support muscles and joints while removing swelling and tension. Kinesiotape reduces pain by causing the body to release Endorphins and Encephalons (the body's natural pain relievers), it helps reduce swelling by gently supporting the area by improving lymphatic flow, and helps correct muscle function by reducing muscle fatigue and over contraction.
REHABILITATIVE EXERCISES, SFMA, & MCKENZIE DIAGNOSIS AND THERAPY
Selective Functional Movement Analysis (SFMA) is a series of full-body movement tests designed to assess fundamental patterns of movement such as bending and squatting in those with known musculoskeletal pain. This approach complements the existing exam to help accurately diagnose the source of the symptoms and target the area for in need of treatment. In order to continue to help maintain proper movement and function to remain pain-free, certain specific corrective exercises are taught and prescribed to the patient to ensure optimal function and decrease the chances of re-injury.
CUPPING & DRY NEEDLING
Cupping and Sliding Cupping is a form of soft tissue treatment used to break up adhesions and scar tissue by using a vacuum effect within the cup to create lift the skin off of the muscle and fascia. This helps loosen the tissue and increase circulation to the treatment area.
Dry needling is a form of acupuncture in which the needle is inserted into the skin and muscle aimed to break up myofascial trigger points and scar tissue, and increase muscle activation and range of motion.
Ultrasound is a form of deep heat therapy used to increase circulation to the affected area. This increase in circulation helps to decrease pain and inflammation.
Normatec compression pants use a patented compression system to help massage the legs leading to an increase in circulation and decrease in swelling and muscle tightness. These are great for recovery.
Electrical stimulation is used for acute sprains/strains to help reduce pain and inflammation. This is achieved by contracting and relaxing the muscle to increase circulation to the injured area.
