Therapies You Need To Get Out of Pain
Our chiropractors utilize a unique blend of services to help get you out of pain and moving better.
Chiropractic manipulative therapy
Sometimes joints don't move as they are supposed to. Chiropractic adjustments are typically done by hand and involve a small thrust into the joint to restore proper movement. Often times there is a "pop" or cavitation which is gas being released from the joint. Chiropractic adjustments are used in the treatment of low back pain, neck pain, mid-back pain, hip & shoulder dysfunctions, and other joints.
Graston technique & Soft tissue therapy
Muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia can play an integral part in pain and can also influence how well you move. Soft tissue therapies such as Graston Technique, FAKTR, and manual therapy work to decrease pain in these tissues, reduce muscle tension, and improve range of motion.
Pain often causes you to change how you move as a protective mechanism. Unfortunately, these movement patterns don't always go back to normal once the pain is gone. Functional rehabilitation addresses these dysfunctional movement patterns and strength imbalances to restore proper mechanics. In fact, our goal is to help you move better than before your injury.
Have you ever hit your funny bone and start rubbing on it to make it feel better? Think of kinesiology tape as constantly rubbing on an injury to decrease the pain. Because the tape is flexible, it also has a lifting effect on the skin which promotes blood flow to decrease inflammation and accelerate the healing process.
selective functional movement assessment (SFMA)
Just like a compass, the Selective Functional Movement Assessment help point out the direction of treatment. The SFMA is a systematic approach to identify the main mobility and stability issues which are causing your pain. An accurate movement assessment results in more effective treatment and a faster recovery.
FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SCREEN (FMS)
A previous injury is one of the most important risk factors for suffering a future injury. To reduce the risk of future injury, we use the Functional Movement Screen which assesses movement for muscle imbalances and movement asymmetries. The Functional Movement Screen is utilized by mainly professional sports teams, including the NBA, MLB, and NFL, to keep their athletes on the field.
