CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

Joints are masters, muscles are slaves!  Neurologically speaking, ligaments and cartilage (i.e. joints) control your resting muscle tension.  When you are experiencing spinal joint pain or stiffness, the muscles that move that joint are told to tighten by your brain, known as the sensory-motor loop.  To reset/reduce your resting muscle tension, the spinal joints need to be mobile, without which, no amount of massage will get rid of those tight muscles.   Manual medicine is a spectrum of remedies for your joints, discs, nerves and thereby your muscles depending on your diagnosis. Techniques include spinal manipulative therapy (adjustments), mobilization, traction, trigger point therapy, myofascial release and cross-friction massage. Treatments often involve a combination of several of these, depending on your needs.

REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body including, muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Massage Therapy is a clinically-oriented healthcare option that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions. Massage therapists use a variety of techniques not limited to:

  • Swedish relaxation massage using oil and/or lotion,

  • Myofascial release, dynamic release, muscle attachment release,

  • Deep tissue, and trigger point release

These techniques can be modified to treat a wide variety of patients including pregnant women, the elderly, athletes, and more.

CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS (INSOLES)

Orthotics, also known as insoles, are prescribed to prevent or arrest foot, ankle, and knee joint problems including: hammer toes, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, bunions, metatarsal pain, shin splints and patella-femoral and meniscal problems. Secondarily, they can help hip and lower back joints, especially when there is a difference in your leg lengths.

Custom orthotics address specific needs of each patient. Prior to casting, a biomechanical foot and ankle assessment as well as gait analysis are performed to understand how your feet function. It usually takes about 3 weeks for the orthotics to be fabricated and shipped back. The lifespan of orthotics depends on activity levels and body type. Generally, they last 3-5 years.

 

COREFLEX TRAINING

CoreFlex is designed for patients of all ages to maximize their core flexibility and strength in minimal time. The personalized 30 minute training session is meant to slow spinal degeneration; improve your core, posture, and joint heath; and help to prevent neck and back pain. During your workout we aim to boost your production of nutrient-rich fluids that help lubricate your joints thus slowing the decay of cartilage. By putting healthy stresses on your bones, we are potentially preventing osteoporosis of the spine and reducing the risk of compression fractures later on in life. The human body responds best to short, frequent flexibility routines which is why CoreFlex Training is such a success.
