Vertebral Subluxation

A subluxation is characterized by a complex interaction of changes which occur in the spine, the joints and their associated structures. This affects five distinct parts of the body, spinal mechanics, neurological flow, muscle health, hystological changes (i.e. tissue changes) and bony changes (i.e. arthritis).

Chiropractors are able to recognize these subluxations by palpating the spine and then bring a correction to the area through adjusting. This allows the body to initiate its own healing mechanisms without the use of harmful drugs and eventually restore itself to proper function.

1. Structural Subluxation: a compression, or squeezing of the nerve as it passes through the opening between the vertebrae. It is commonly called a pinched nerve. This is often the result of a mechanical or physical stress from which the body could not recover.

2. Facilitated Subluxation: an elongation or twisting of the spinal cord and associated nervous tissue. This is most likely associated with emotional, mental, or chemical stress from which the body-mind could not recover.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

is used to reduce swelling and pain, reduce muscle spasms and increase cellular metabolism in the body to increase the speed of healing and strengthen muscles.

Hot/Cold Packs

hot and cold packs are therapies used during treatment to reduce swelling and pain, increase blood flow and relax muscles in spasm.

Intersegmental Traction (IST)

gently helps re-establish the normal ranges of ones spine. IST also helps facilitate muscle relaxation and reduce muscle spasms. IST Mobilizes the spinal column while simultaneously and gently stretching ligaments and muscles.

Myofascial Release (MFR)

is an effective hands-on technique of manual massage for stretching the fascia (a strong connective tissue that provides structural support and protection to the muscle), with the goal of eliminating pain, increasing range of motion and balancing the body.

Interferential Therapy

is a state-of-the-art physical therapy modality which can help in reducing pain and speeding up healing times. Interferential has been proven to be an effective approach for acute and chronic pain control without the side effects often associated with pain-relieving medications. We use interferential for the following conditions: acute and chronic pain, muscle spasms, sprains, strains, muscle knots, muscle trigger points, swelling, tendonitis, bursitis, disc lesions, sciatica, and arm or leg pain/numbness/tingling.

*Interferential therapy should not be used over metallic implants, pregnancy, cancer, heart/pacemaker, or open wounds*

Laser Therapy

is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. The word “LASER” is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.

Microcurrent stimulation therapy

uses extremely small amounts of electrical current (millionths of an amp) to help relieve pain and enhance the healing of soft tissues of the body. Microcurrent Stimulation Therapy can help speed the healing process, reduce swelling and inflammation, release muscle trigger points, and improve soft tissue regeneration.
