A chiropractic manipulation or adjustment is a great and evidence-based method to restore motion in your spine, relieve pain, decrease pain and improve function. This can be done manually with hands or with the help of an adjusting tool such as the Activator or Arthrostim, which can be a more gentle technique. Joint manipulation can be applied to many joints in the body – even ankles, wrists, hips, knees and more!
The goal of chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, increase the range of motion, reduce nerve irritability, and improve mobility. Our compassionate and qualified chiropractor will work with you to relieve this pain and get you back to being pain free every single day.
Although many people visit their chiropractor and have an adjustment when something feels out of alignment, a regular visit will help you avoid any pain in the future and will keep your body feeling great all day long.
If you are having one of those days when you are not in the best mood, an adjustment may actually help. Your body will feel much better, which will naturally improve your mood.
Electrotherapy is an alternative pain management treatment option that involves the use of mild electromagnetic pulses to provide relief for the patient. This treatment option can dull pain, repair tissue, strengthen muscles, and even improve your blood circulation.
Kinesiology Taping is a precise rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints. This technique allows the body’s normal range of motion as well as providing extending soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. Kinesio tape is latex-free and hypoallergenic which makes it “skin friendly” for patients with sensitive or fragile skin; such as, patients with diabetes, fibromyalgia or rheumatoid arthritis.

Soft Tissue Manipulation
There are a variety of methods to decrease muscle tightness, soreness, stiffness and improve your function and range of motion; instrument assisted soft tissue manipulation (IASTM) or sometimes known as Grasten, cupping, pin and stretch, ischemic compression, PIR and CRAC, muscle stripping and more!
Unique exercises may be prescribed based on the patient’s presentation and from postural and functional assessments. Exercises/stretches may be used to strengthen the weak or inhibited muscles and stretch the tight or hypertonic muscles respectively.
Cupping improves circulation and blood flow to targeted areas which will bring healing properties to ultimately aid in reducing pain and inflammation in the muscles. It can help relax muscles as well.
The Theragun Message Gun aims to that aims to improve circulation, reduce muscle tension, and decrease pain. This device is used in our office to help facilitate our adjustments. Muscle tightness is often something the doctors need to work through and this device aims to help relax those tight muscle fibers.
Therabody Air Compression
“RecoveryAir systems sequentially compress the legs to more quickly flush out metabolic waste and bring fresh, oxygenated blood back to the area. This increase in circulation helps reduce muscle soreness and fatigue more globally in the body.“
Dry needling is a safe and effective way to reduce tension in muscles, increase endorphins and change the pain pathway in the body. It has evidence showing significant effects in reducing chronic headaches, helping with osteoarthritis and diminishing trigger points in the body.
