Chiropractic Manipulation and Therapies
I strive to offer my patients the most specific and gentle chiropractic adjustments. I primarily use DIVERSIFIED Technique when making chiropractic adjustments. This manual technique is characterized by the use of the doctor’s hands to make corrections in the spine and throughout the joints of the body. Diversified technique often involves adjustments referred to as “side posture” for the lower back and can include “anterior” (facing up) adjustments of the mid-back.
Additionally, I utilize Flexion-Distraction Technique in the treatment of disc herniations, sciatica, radiculopathies (nerve irritation), and other injuries. These treatments help relieve weakness, numbness, and pains which travel into the buttock and legs. Additional treatments for radicular/traveling pain often involves treatment of muscle spasms with myofascial release technique and stretching exercises.
Treatments that I use for soft tissues (muscles and tendons) injuries include: Myofascial Release Technique, Trigger Point Therapy, Post Isometric Relaxation/Post Facilitated Stimulation, and more. Electric Muscle Stimulation, Ultrasound, Traction, and Hot and Cold Therapies are also utilized in the office.
Conditioning and Wellness
Conditioning the core strengthens the prime movers in the back, abs, gluts, legs and helps prevent injury. Relief from low back pain, achiness, shoulder tension, and headaches can be yours. Chiropractic therapy corrects posture and spinal motion, while core strengthening makes these changes more lasting. Let me teach you how we can can help your body heal itself and maintain spinal wellness.
