Spinal Manipulation Adjustment:

Chiropractic manipulation refers to a chiropractor applying manipulation to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. Chiropractic manipulation (also known as chiropractic adjustment or spinal manipulation), is a common therapeutic treatment for lower back and neck pain. The objective of this chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, which results in an increased range of motion, reduced nerve irritability and improved function.

Applied Kinesiology:

Applied kinesiology (AK) is a form of diagnosis using muscle testing as a primary feedback mechanism to examine how a person’s body is functioning. Click here to learn more: http://www.icakusa.com/

Instrument Adjustment:

Refers to Chiropractic manipulation with hand held activator to reduce subluxation. Click here to learn more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Activator_technique

Sacro Occipital Therapy:

Sacro Occipital SOT is a method of chiropractic based primarily on the cranial sacral respiratory system, the weight-bearing system and the function of the lumbar spine. Correction of subluxation is accomplished by pelvic blocking, gentle spinal manipulation and cranial manipulation.

Logan Basic Chiropractic Technique:

This is a specific chiropractic technique in which light pressure is applied to the ligaments of the sacrum. Light force is concurrently applied to various spinal levels to reduce pain/symptoms and restore muscle balance. This technique is very gentle and effective with children of all ages.

Manual Traction

Traction is a procedure where force is applied to a part of the body in an effort to stretch soft tissue or separate articular surfaces. Manual traction is Hands on Traction applied by the Doctor that involves a continuous steady pull, intermittent pulls, or just a few quick pulls.

NON-FORCE TECHNIQUES:
Electrical Muscle Stimulation:

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electromyostimulation, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses. It serves as a strength training tool, and a rehabilitation and preventive tool for pain control, muscle weakness and inflammation.

Myofascial Therapy:

The myofascial release approach is a form of soft tissue therapy used to treat somatic dysfunction and resulting pain and restriction of motion. It uses continual palpatory feedback to achieve release of myofascial tissues. This is accomplished by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage, and stimulating the stretch reflex of muscles and overlying fascia.

Moist Heat Therapies:

Moist heat therapy provides natural pain relief for stressed muscles and nerves. Hot herbal wraps are used around a strained or painful muscle to reduce spasm and increase circulation for relief.

Foot Orthotics:

A properly aligned body will have symmetrical feet, level knees, pelvis and shoulders. Wearing Stabilizing Orthotics may help alleviate imbalances and conditions caused by those imbalances. Click here to learn more: http://www.footlevelers.com/

PHYSICAL THERAPY:
Ultrasound:

Ultrasound is a therapeutic modality which reduces inflammation due to arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis and neuritis. Ultrasound is applied using a round-headed wand or probe that is put in direct contact with the patient's skin. Ultrasound waves stimulate blood circulation and fluid exchange to increase healing.

Therapeutic Exercises:

Any exercise planned and performed to attain a specific physical benefit, such as maintenance of the range of motion, strengthening of weakened muscles, increased joint flexibility, or improved cardiovascular and respiratory function.

Cryotherapy:

Application of cold packs to reduce swelling and inflammation for acute conditions such as whiplash, sprains & strains.

Flexion/Distraction:

Chiropractic technique that treats lumbar pain and intervertebral disc pathology using special tables for traction-mobilization.
