Deep tissue triggerpoint therapy provides a feeling of relaxation and freedom from tension and headaches by releasing tight muscles and working out muscle knots. Regular deep tissue work combined with chiropractic care keeps you living healthy for life.
Active Release Technique (ART) treats your body’s soft tissue by combining manipulation and movement. The technique has been around for more than 30 years. ART is identifying, isolating, and targeting the affected area to break up scar tissue. This promotes blood flow and faster healing of injuries.
The constant weight of gravity can leave your spine feeling compressed and tense. Spinal traction stretches your spine providing relief and making it easy to stand up straight.
E-Stim or TENS may be used for chronic (long-term) pain as well as for acute (short-term) pain. Electrodes are placed on the skin near the source of pain. Signals are sent through nerve fibers to block or at least reduce the pain signals traveling to the brain.
This therapy is typically used for muscle and joint tension by focusing an electric current to stimulate heat in your muscles. Treating injuries with heat can increase blood flow and make joints more flexible. By increasing blood flow to the site of an injury, the deep heat can accelerate healing.
Unlike Ultrasound imaging, Therapeutic Ultrasound is mainly used to treat chronic pain and for soft tissue healing. Your doctor might use therapeutic ultrasound for deep heating of muscles and tendons to increase blood flow and resolve pain.
The Y-Axis Adjustment (famously nicknamed the “Ring Dinger” by YouTube Chiropractor Dr. Greg Johnson) is a controversial technique in the Chiropractic world. However, It is safe and effective for patients with fully developed, active, and healthy spines. It is a game changer.
Gua Sha, like Graston technique, uses a tool to “scrape” over a muscle or sore spot to help move toxins out, break up scar tissue or get rid of tendonitis. It looks painful and can sometimes be uncomfortable but it’s miraculous when working through injuries.
When you’re dealing with pain or soreness the last thing you want to do is stretch. Passive stretching is useful in relieving spasms in muscles that are healing after an injury. We’ll do the work for you.
Adding routine chiropractic care to your self-care regimen keeps your spine free of dysfunction and ensures lifelong spinal health and independence. Nobody wants to be the little old lady hunched over with tennis balls on the legs of her walker.
You’re only gifted one body and it‘s crucial that you take good care of it. If you want your car to last, you take it in for regular oil changes and alignments. If you want your teeth to remain healthy you get regular cleanings and checkups at the dentist. The same goes for your spine.
This is more than just adjusting. This is advanced x-ray imaging combined with deep tissue trigger point massage for your muscles. Add in feel-good therapies like spinal traction, therapeutic ultrasound, E-stim, and assisted stretching. It’s truly comprehensive care for your body.
