Our Chiropractic Treatment Techniques

Diversified Chiropractic Technique

We use this technique to help you regain proper movement and alignment of your joints and spine. It involves low amplitude thrusts at a high velocity and is the most widely used technique. Your chiropractor will use their hands to manipulate your spine and joints.

Activator®

In this technique, we use the activator adjustment instrument to align your spine. The instrument manipulates your spine and joints. It is ideal for treating back and neck pain, as well as the discomforts you could be feeling on the limbs.

ASTM/Graston Technique

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, or Graston Technique, is a soft tissue technique utilizing specific tools which, when effectively applied by a trained practitioner, will break up myofascial adhesions and scar tissue. This can help to alleviate chronic tightness throughout the body. Using this technique, patients will notice improved mobility, decreased pain and tension, improved circulation and quicker healing of injuries. Conditions such as sprains, strains, and tendinitis respond very well to this technique

Active Release (ART)

Active Release is a soft tissue and movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Using this technique, your chiropractor will release these tight areas using manual techniques, allowing the area to move freely once again. In the short term, this technique can alleviate pain and other symptoms, correct movement issues, and speed healing. In the long term, maintaining proper movement can prevent injury, enhance performance and prolong the health and function of your body.

Frequently Asked Questions About Chiropractic Services

A common chiropractic myth is: ‘if I go once, I will need to go the rest of my life.’ Rest assured this is merely a myth. Typically patients come in seeking treatment for pain and discomfort. Our chiropractors work interactively with each patient to establish a history, perform an assessment, determine a diagnosis and create a treatment plan, setting clear goals. Patients often feel much better, experiencing less pain, increased range of motion and overall improved general well being once treated. As a patient’s pain and discomfort dissipates, periodic wellness visits are often suggested to allow for fine-tuning and proactive care.

Graston Technique is an instrument assisted soft tissue technique used to treat injuries in muscles and fascia. An emollient is used on the skin to reduce friction between the skin and the instrument providing the treatment. Treatment often feels odd and gritty as a result of build up of scar tissue and even knotted muscles that are likely contributing to pain in the area of treatment. Graston can be a quick and effective way to treat many injuries through the body.

Active Release Technique (ART) helps break up scar tissue that can cause muscles to become shortened and weakened. By providing tension in a specific direction on a particular location where scar tissue has built up, ART can improve range of motion and reduce pain. ART can be used to treat many conditions both acute and chronic.

Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) is used to treat acute and chronic pain. A fine acupuncture needle is inserted into the muscle of concern to help stimulate healing, relaxation and lengthening of the muscle. Patients often feel and even see the muscle twitch as it is stimulated and treated.

Shockwave Therapy is a highly effective treatment technique for soft tissue injuries, both chronic and acute. Despite the name “shockwave,” it is not electrical in nature. An acoustic sound wave is used to penetrate deep into tissues where other therapies may be unable to permeate.

Chiropractic traction therapy is the process of gently pulling apart the vertebrae where the disc is damaged. This is a painless process separating them a little bit to enable healing to take place. Pain release can be immediate.

HEADACHE AND NECK PAIN

Headaches are a common condition causing pain in the head, scalp or neck. They can vary from mild to severe and can have many different causes. Headaches are typically categorized as primary or secondary. Primary headaches are caused by an underlying process in the brain, such as tension headaches or migraine. Secondary headaches are caused by an underlying medical condition such as sinusitis or degenerative changes in the cervical spine.

Temporomandibular Dysfunction

Temporomandibular dysfunction, or TMD can have multiple causes including: injury to the jaw, head or neck; grinding or clenching of the teeth; stress; arthritis or even a history of numerous dental procedures. TMD can cause jaw pain, clicking, popping or grinding in one or both sides of the jaw joints and muscles as well as locking of the jaw in an open or closed postion. Patients may also complain of their jaw muscles feeling tired, difficulty chewing or tinnitus. Graston is a very effective treatment to reduce tension in the associated muscles that may be contributing to the pain. Corrective exercises may need to be completed on a regular basis to help improve the function of the joint.

SEPARATED SHOULDERS

Separated shoulders are an injury to the acromioclavicular (AC) joint. AC joint injuries are most commonly caused by impact such as a fall directly onto the shoulder or a hard hit in hockey. Treatments for AC joints vary depending on the severity of the injury which can be determined through an assessment and possibly X-rays. It is important to treat all the tissues around the AC joint for a full recovery and return of full range of motion. Treatments such as Active Release, Graston and Shockwave are very beneficial for this type of injury. Kinesiotaping is another method our practitioners use to aid in recovery.
