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.

SHIN SPLINTS

Shin splints are a common injury associated with running or other impact activities. The pain is typically along the inside of the shin or tibia which is amplified with impact. Several different factors can cause shin splints such as improper warm up or cool down, poor footwear, repetitive stress, flat feet or even a change in your workouts. There are many ways that shin splints can be successfully treated, including: Shockwave, Graston or Active Release. Restricting impact, stretching, foam rolling, proper footwear and ice are important during treatment to get you back to your activities as soon as possible.

SPORTS INJURIES

Some of the most common sports injuries we treat at HIP are separated shoulders, chronic ankle sprains and knee pain. If you are an athlete and suffer an injury, we have the team to get you back! Ankle sprains are common in sports with running & jumping, such as soccer, basketball or volleyball. Left untreated these injuries can cause weakness in the surrounding muscles, making ankle sprains more common. The best time to get an ankle sprain treated is right away. Techniques such as lymphatic drainage and kinesiotaping can help reduce the swelling & bruising quicker than rest alone. It is also important to keep the joint moving to recover quicker. Ice is always a must with swollen/bruised ankles. Our expertise helps speed up initial recovery and longevity long-term.

SCIATICA

Sciatica is a nerve pain caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve. Patients often report pain in the lower back and down the back of their leg. Numbness, tingling or muscle weakness can also occur. Sciatica can be caused by a herniated disc, bone spurs or spinal stenosis which is a narrowing of the spine that can lead to compression of the nerve. Sciatica typically will affect one side of the body. Sneezing, coughing and straining are often extremely painful with sciatica. Our chiropractors are fully equipped to assess and address irritations of the sciatica nerve.

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.

IT BAND SYNDROME

Some of the most common causes of knee pain are ITB syndrome and patellofemoral syndrome. Improper recruitment of muscles leads to both of these conditions, but with proper management they can be treated. Active Release, Graston & kinesiotaping as well as muscle re-education are great treatment options for speedy recovery.

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. Our team of practitioners evaluate patients to determine the type and cause of headaches then recommend an appropriate treatment plan to resolve the condition.

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.
