We provide a mostly manual adjusting technique that is based off a diversified style. Our doctors are also extensively trained using techniques taught by the Motion Palpation Institute.
Dry Needling involves the insertion of a small solid filament needle (similar to an accupuncture needle) into the muscle tissue with the goal to create a therapeutic change in the muscle, nerve, or joint. Dry needling is very effective at treating spine injuries, chronic pain, sports injuries, and headaches/migraines.
Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to stimulate the body's natural ability to heal. During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system. Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, and headaches/migraines.
Techniques such as Active Release Technique (ART), percussion massage, trigger point (TrP) therapy, and body tempering all help to release muscle tension and soreness by using the provider's hands or some other device.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) or often called "scraping" helps increase blood flow and oxygen to the affected area by gliding a tool across the skin that eases tension from fascial adhesions or other types of scar tissue.
Using a specialized treatment table we are able to manually traction the spine in a repetitive manner to unload and take pressure off of irritated or compressed discs. Similar to spinal decompression, but better.
Cervical Traction is a popular treatment for neck pain and related injuries. This device pulls your head away from your neck to create expansion between vertebrae and eliminate compression.
Both of our doctors are trained and certified in performing junior high and high school pre-participation sports physicals.
