A Chiropractic Adjustment is a movement to the spine to help restore a motion that has been lost or to realign a joint that has been shifted out of alignment. Adjustments release tension, restores range of motion, decreases inflammation and improves function. Common conditions treated with Chiropractic adjustments include low back pain, headaches, neck and shoulder tension with or without associated numbness and tingling in the arms and hands.
Ultrasound and Electrical Stimulation
Typical symptoms presented from pain will include inflammation, muscle spasms or tenderness. Modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound or electrical stimulation are applied to help with these symptoms. These patterns are important when treating injuries such as a sprain, a pulled muscle or other conditions such as elbow, knee or shoulder tendonitis.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
Decompression therapy is a type of treatment to help decrease pressure build up within the spine. Changes in posture and degenerative changes, alter the pressure within the spinal canal and can cause conditions such as disc bulges or herniations, spinal stenosis, headaches, and migraines. Spinal decompression therapy decreases this pressure on the spine thereby alleviating pain and tension.
Massage therapy is an effective way to help relax the musculature surrounding the spine when a dysfunction causes tight and tense muscles. All massage therapy appointments are customized by the chiropractic physician to focus on individual patients and their conditions.
Acupuncture was developed in ancient China as the primary form of medical treatment and spread practice throughout Asia, including Korea and Japan. Western medicine now recognizes the efficacy and benefits of acupuncture for the prevention and treatment of various illnesses. Also, acupuncture assists in maintaining a healthy body.
The foundation of acupuncture is the stimulation of electromagnetically charged points located on various energy pathways in the body known as “meridians.” Stimulation occurs with the insertion of very fine filaments thin as a human hair. Treatment is administered at the different meridians for the treatment of various illnesses.
Numerous conditions can be cured, dramatically reduced or stabilized through acupuncture, including acute and chronic pain (muscular, neuralgic, and joint-located); endocrine and immune system imbalances, nervous system-related disorders (anxiety, depression, fatigue, and stress); digestive and reproductive system disorders.
