Also known as chiropractic manipulation, this form of therapy aims to readjust the spine. This treatment is especially used to relieve lower back pain, where chiropractic manipulation is the most effective. The spine is a body structure that is prone to trauma and postural stress. Chiropractic adjustments employ gentle force to realign the spine's structure and restore it to a normal range of motion. An adjustment might involve high velocity for the vertebrae, the release of gas in order to relieve joint pressure, and the application of pressure toward a specific direction. The end result of this treatment is a healthier, painless spine that is able to move around more freely.
Otherwise known as physiotherapy, this treatment uses movement or force to improve mobility and function. Our physical therapeutics may involve ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, intersegmental traction, and diathermy. All of these are forms of therapy that work to reduce pain, eliminate muscle spasm, and increase flexibility.
Postural and Gait Analysis
In this analysis, our staff will examine the patient's posture and manner of walking. Poor posture can have a negative impact on a person's health, leading muscle stiffness, back pain, and neck pain. In addition to detecting poor posture, the analysis can evaluate abnormal foot structure, such as flat feet or high arches. Our state-of-the-art technology can design customized foot orthotics that improve the patient's feet.
Thermotherapy uses heat to promote pain relief and other therapeutic effects. In our heat therapy program, the chiropractor may use heat packs and ultrasound in order to heal the patient. Heat therapy is known to improve muscle stiffness, arthritis, chronic pain, inflammation, and muscle spasms.
In a nutritional analysis, we equip patients with the knowledge on how to eat a healthy, nutritionally balanced diet. When nutritionally needs are fully met, the patient can reach optimal health. Our doctors offer specific recommendations for food choice and supplements.
Acupuncture treatment injects thin needles for therapeutic purposes. This ancient form of Chinese medicine is said to have many health benefits. Namely, it reduces pain, releases endorphins, and finds an electromagnetic balance in the patient's body.
