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.
TENNIS AND GOLFER'S ELBOW
Golfer's Elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis, is caused by repetitive stress and or weakness of the muscles which flex your wrist and fingers. Pain or tenderness is local to the inside of the elbow, and can also move down the forearm and into the hand.
Patients often report pain or weakness on either the inside or outside of the elbow which is worsened with computer work, lifting or gripping and repetitive activities. There are many ways that tennis and golfer's elbow can be successfully treated, including Shockwave, Graston or Active Release. It is importation to ice the elbow to help reduce inflammation during the healing process.
