Methods of Treatment

A chiropractic adjustment is a common method for chiropractors to treat back pain and neck pain and involves the chiropractor applying pressure to spinal joints that are causing dysfunction and related pain.

Custom Orthotics

Stabilizing Orthotics maintain the structure of the plantar vault to balance the entire body.
Cold Therapy/Cryotherapy
Cold packs may be applied to the injured area to reduce swelling and inflammation and promote healing.
Intersegmental Traction
Spinal discs depend on the circulation of fluids surrounding spinal joints to provide the nutrition they need for good health. When this circulation is blocked, discs can thin and degenerate. Intersegmental traction is a comfortable, relaxing therapy that applies mild stretches to muscles, ligaments and tissue to help restore circulation, elasticity of the spine and range of motion.
Muscle Stimulation
Muscle stimulation is most often used to treat conditions such as muscle sprains, strains and spasms. Tiny electrical impulses are given to reduce pain and swelling in soft tissues surrounding areas of acute and chronic pain. The impulses increase blood circulation to provide drug-free relief to the patient.
Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization is a method of treatment that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
Therapeutic Exercise
The scientific use of bodily movement to restore normal function in diseased or injured tissues or to maintain a state of well-being. As with any type of therapy, a therapeutic exercise program is designed to correct specific disabilities of the individual patient. Exercises affect the body locally and systemically and bring about changes in the nervous, musculoskeletal system, as well as the circulatory system.
Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of normalizing those tissues and consists of manual techniques that include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and/or causing movement of or to the body. Generally, massage is known to affect the circulation of blood and the flow of blood and lymph, reduce muscular tension or flaccidity, and enhance tissue healing.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling, also known as myofascial trigger point dry needling, is an alternative medicine technique similar to acupuncture. Dry needling is sometimes also known as intramuscular stimulation (IMS). It involves the use of either solid filiform needles or hollow-core hypodermic needles for therapy of muscle pain, including pain related to myofascial pain syndrome. Dry needling is mainly used to “treat” myofascial “trigger points,” but it is also used to “target” connective tissue, neural ailments, and muscular ailments. The American Physical Therapy Association defines dry needling as a technique used to treat dysfunction of skeletal muscle and connective tissue, minimize peripheral nociception (pain), and improve or regulate structural or functional damage
