Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy
A variety of gentle, effective techniques used to restore joint mobility, increase range of motion and reduce pain.
- Diversified: The use of a quick, specific thrust delivered manually to a joint that is not moving properly in order to restore normal motion.
- Cox Flexion/Distraction: A series of repetitive slow traction or stretching movements used to help restore normal spinal joint motion, ease pressure on discs and reduce muscle spasm and tightness.
- Thompson Drop Table: A table with movable sections which can be set up to “drop” in synchronization with a manual manipulation. This technique enhances the precision and acceleration of the adjustment.
- Activator Methods Technique®: A hand held instrument which delivers a quick, precise thrust to a joint in order to restore mobility.
- Graston Technique®: Patented instruments used to detect and treat soft tissue injury in both acute and chronic stages.
- Trigger Point Therapy: Manual technique for relief of muscular pain and tightness.
Modalities such as electrotherapy and thermotherapy, which enhance manipulative treatment.
Stretching and strengthening exercises taught in-office and designed to be performed at home, which speed the recovery process and improve the effectiveness of in-office care.
Diet and supplementation recommendations tailored to each patient's needs.
