Feel Your Best Through A Movement Based, Whole Body Approach
A chiropractic adjustment is a technique that is designed to add increased range of motion to any joint from an applied force.
Chiropractors are trained to feel when a joint is restricted. By applying a gentle, quick force to that joint with an adjustment allows the joint to move better with the goal of restoring it to normal function.
Manual therapy targets the muscles, tendons, ligaments and/or fascia that may be contributing to the source of your problem. This may encompass a few different techniques based on your injury, diagnosis, and preference.
Manual Therapy can include:
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)
Pin & Stretch
Cupping involves creating a suction against the skin on areas of that body that are tight and/or painful. This mechanism decompresses the area while increasing the blood flow. The dark colored circles that cups can leave are broken capillaries at the surface of the skin that help kick start the healing process. These marks are typically healed within a few days to a week.
The goal is to help reduce pain and tightness and restore proper function to the area of complaint.
Depending on your diagnosis, assessment, and health goals, therapeutic exercises are given to increase mobility and/or stability/strength.
Once the pain starts to subside, exercises are prescribed specific to your functional assessment, sport, work demands, or activities of daily living.
The prescribed exercises and stretches give you the power to manage the biomechanical aspect of your injury or pain and allow you to play an active role in your recovery and healing process.
We offer RockTape & Dynamic Tape that can each help for different reasons and various complaints.
Kinesio taping (RockTape) can be applied to different muscles and joints with the goal of reducing pain in-between treatments. It works by applying a stretch to the tape in the target area in order to create space under the skin and produce the desired effect on the musculature. It can change the deeper layers of facia by manipulating the skin and muscle.
Dynamic Tape works by aiding in offloading the joints and encouraging the restoration of movement by providing a springy feeling to the area of complaint. This can help tremendously when dealing with rotator cuff strains, ankle sprains, post ACL sprains, etc.
