We offer more than just the standard chiropractic adjustments. Depending on what you have going on, your treatment can and will be tailored to best treat and prevent injuries!
Joint & Spinal Manipulation
When joints are misaligned, a chiropractic physician can use their hands or an instrument to manipulate the joints of the body, particularly the spine, in order to restore or enhance joint function. Adjustments (or the process of correcting these misalignments) will help free the joints that are moving improperly and allow the muscles to relax.
Dry Needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.
Dry needling is a technique used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle, fascia, and connective tissue, and, diminish persistent peripheral nociceptive input, and reduce or restore impairments of body structure and function leading to improved activity and participation
Cupping & Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Treatment
Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. This suction is to improve the flow of blood in the body and facilitate healing to the treated area.
Compression therapy is used to decrease inflammation and swelling in the extremities through the breakdown and removal of lactic acid. It also promotes healthy circulation and rapid muscle recovery.
Kinesio-taping and its application methods have been done for generations, especially in the athlete setting. Whether it is used for support during a pre-workout routine or used post injury to provide stability, taping has many benefits. There are many different brands, the one we primary uses is called RockTape. RockTape provides the same benefit as any other Kinesio tape, however, it provides an added benefit of being preloaded. The preloaded ability allows RockTape to pull skin, fascia, and muscle fibers away from injury so that blood, and lymph can flow more freely allowing inflammation and debris to be removed easier to improve healing time.
Thermo Therapy /
What is Thermo-therapy? It is the application of either ice or heat to improve function, flexibility, and post injury rehab. So how do you know which on to use? Ice is normally used with acute injuries which are within a time frame of 24-72 hours post injury. The cold temperature are good at reducing swelling as well as decreasing sensitivity where applied to help reduce pain. Heat is typically used for chronic injuries that are causing symptoms beyond 72 hours post injury. Heat increases metabolism and blood flow to reduce muscle spasms and increase flexibility.
