Chiropractic Care

Spinal Adjusting
Adjustments are done manually, with a drop piece, or with an Activator.


Extremity Adjusting
Adjustments performed manually and with drop piece to shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles.


Newborns, Infants, & Children
Newborns may have pre-existing subluxations due to positioning in the womb. The birth process can also be very traumatic from obstetrical procedures of tractioning and twisting the neck and spine during delivery. Special low-force adjusting procedures are used on infants. Many common childhood conditions such as ear infections, allergies, asthma, colic, and bedwetting have been shown to be responsive to chiropractic care. Special low-force adjusting procedures are also used on children.



Pregnant Women
Increased stress is placed on the body while pregnant. Chiropractic is very effective in reducing back pain as well as balancing the pelvis. This allows for optimal fetal positioning which aides in the ease and speed of delivery.

    Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping involves taping over and around muscles in order to assist and give support or to prevent over-contraction. The elastic, latex-free tape is used to re-educate the neuromuscular system, promote lymphatic flow, reduce pain, relax muscles, and speed injury recovery.
 

    Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a therapeutic treatment using high-frequency sound waves, which penetrate deep in the soft tissues. The heat response created increases blood flow, relaxes muscle spasms, massages damaged tissues, and speeds the healing process. Most patients feel nothing or a relaxing sensation below the surface of the skin during a treatment.


Electrical Muscle  Stimulation

EMS is a special form of electrical current that is administered at the site of soft tissue injury to reduce swelling and pain. Patients generally feel a slight tingling sensation during the treatment. EMS can also be combined with cryotherapy (application of ice packs) or ultrasound to enhance the effects and speed recovery.
 

Acupuncture 

Acupuncture performed in conjunction with chiropractic care can be very effective in enhancing the effects of treatment. Acupuncture is a form of Oriental medicine, which believes that human beings have a flow of energy through the body called Qi. Qi is the vital energy that nourishes and activates our mind, body, and spirit. When there is an imbalance, deficiency, or blockage of this energy, pain and disease result. In a chiropractic setting, acupuncture is very effective in decreasing back pain, headaches, and extremity conditions. Acupuncture is safe and is usually pain free.

              
        Cupping

 
Cupping is an ancient Chinese practice in which a cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The cup is either left stationary or moved up and down the back. Cupping is used to remove stagnation in the area and is effective in reducing musculoskeletal pain. Cupping often leaves red or bruised circles on the back.
