The following therapies (all based on science and research) work with each other in a combination that has been specifically tailored to you as an individual. Your treatments will depend on your diagnosis. Further, your program can be adapted to how you respond to the initial series of treatments to promote the best recovery possible.
After our initial examination and assessment, we will apply our expertise in developing the ideal treatment for you. We want to find out what’s causing the pain, treat it, and work to prevent the pain from coming back.
As a foundational therapy, we offer adjustments to help your spine in a couple of ways: increase the mobility of your joints and decrease strain on your ligaments and nerves. We manipulate the spine, arms, and legs as well as reposition the vertebrae. Chiropractic adjustments offer great potential to alleviate pain and promote healing, and there are very few adverse effects. In addition to the basic adjustment, we perform cervical traction, which helps to alleviate pressure being placed on the neck.
ART can be used for a number of ailments and injuries. It is a massage technique that helps alleviate issues with soft tissues like muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. But how does it work? The fibrosis/adhesions that form due to overload or repetitive use are removed, thereby easing the tissue tension. We often apply ART on patients with headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow, among other issues. ART offers the potential for quick and permanent recovery.
Like Active Release Technique, this therapy works very well on soft tissue. It combines a diagnostic element along with the treatment itself. Aided with the Graston Technique’s patented instrumentation, we locate the area of your body that is damaged (like with scar tissue or inflammation) and work on the affected part (i.e., we break down the scar tissue).
This treatment uses specialized instruments to massage or scrape the skin in a gentle manner. The technique combines a number of approaches that include breaking down the scar tissue restrictions, stretching connective tissue in order to rearrange the structure of the soft tissue, and promoting a better healing environment for the affected tissue. The goal is to ease your pain, increase your mobility, and improve the function of the affected area.
It works very well on resolving problems like a pulled ligament or tendon or strained muscle. The best part is that the Graston technique can not only help in resolving chronic conditions that are considered permanent but also decrease the overall treatment time. In the long term, it can even help reduce dependency on anti-inflammatory medication.
This therapy also combines diagnosis and treatment in a single technique and works well for patients with back, neck, and extremity problems. It applies repetitive movement to aid in healing and ease of symptoms by focusing between your vertebrae. If you have difficulty with the movements on your own (due to injury or trauma, or for other reasons of limited mobility), the McKenzie Method offers its signature REPEX machine to do the movements for you.
This therapy is a great option for rehabilitation, especially following injuries (like from sports). It is the preferred technique for taping and uses a special, patented tape to treat conditions related to neuromuscular ailments. It works by lifting the skin microscopically, which helps increase the interstitial space and reduces inflammation in the affected areas. It’s useful in varied types of instances such as promoting post-surgery recovery, reducing pain, and optimizing performance. Plus it’s great at facilitating the body’s natural healing process.
