Chiropractic care focuses on returning the patient to good health, without the use of drugs or surgery, through manipulation and mobilization of joints, soft tissue therapy, rehabilitative exercises and stretches, modalities and a variety of other treatments.
Low-Level Laser Therapy:
Low-Level Laser Therapy is a modality that uses light energy on a specific wavelength to penetrate deep into tissue. This light energy is absorbed by the various tissues of the body (muscles, joints, ligaments) and is transferred into biochemical energy. As a result, there is a decrease in swelling, acceleration in healing time, and an increase in the pain threshold, due to the release of endorphins morphine-like substances that inhibit the sensation of pain. Low-level Laser therapy is often used to treat acute sprains and strains.
Medical Acupuncture is a precise muscle and peripheral nerve stimulation technique where acupuncture needles are inserted into anatomically defined points. The needles can be left inserted or stimulated electronically to create muscular and nervous system change. Acupuncture treatments are used to help alleviate pain and inflammation, relieve pressure on nerves, promote tissue healing, improve range of motion and re-establish muscle strength.
Soft Tissue Therapy:
Soft tissue therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body i.e. muscles, connective tissue/fascia, tendons, ligaments and joints. Soft tissue therapy helps alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions. Soft tissue therapy can greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning. Soft tissue therapy will be used in conjunction with other healing modalities to create optimal results.
Shockwave Therapy creates high energy acoustic waves which have the capacity to penetrate deep below the skin to fix the root cause of the ailment. The acoustic energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes in the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. These waves can interact with injured tissues accelerating injury repair, new cell growth, analgesia and increased mobility. Shockwave is used to treat chronic, sub-acute and acute conditions. Shockwave therapy is extremely helpful in treating plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, and rotator cuff tendinosis.
Orthotics can be utilized to assist in any lower body or foot condition. A 3-D scan of the foot will be performed and examined to create the perfect custom orthotic for each individual. Orthotics can aid in reducing pain, offsetting muscular tension, aiding in proper biomechanics, reducing weight-bearing forces on painful areas, and ensuring proper foot contact. Our 3-D scanning technology allows us to match the orthotics to specific shoes and satisfy any foot type.
