When performing a manual adjustment, the chiropractor uses their hands to manipulate the spine and other joints to achieve the desired level of movement.
Adjusting instruments are essentially hand-held, spring-loaded tools that applies a gentle impulse to a specific location of the body. This approach is generally chosen when the doctor needs to achieve a more detailed level of adjustment. It is also appropriate when a lighter touch or more controlled amount of pressure is needed.
Myofascial release offers a drug-free, non-invasive technique for relaxing tight muscles and soft tissue. The doctor uses a variety of techniques and tools to release tension and break up painful scar tissue, including instrument massage, gua sha, and manual trigger point release.
Kinesio Tape facilitates the body's natural healing power to help alleviate pain and muscle spasm. Taping after a manual manipulation session helps to stabilize the area, and strengthens the nerve connection between the brain and injured area to speed the healing process.
Custom Molded Orthotics
Custom-made shoe inserts, orthotics, are used as a treatment method to relieve foot or ankle pain. The orthotics we provide are custom made to your foot size and type. They are molded exactly to the contours of your foot for a perfect fit and feel.
A back brace is used to prevent or restrict painful movements, such as twisting the spine or bending forward, backward, or to the side. By reducing spinal pressure, a back brace may lessen painful muscle tension and prevent re-injury.
