Chiropractic Therapies

Chiropractic is a natural system of health care and serves the needs of an estimated 20 to 30 million Americans each year. The primary aim of chiropractic is to restore and maintain health by properly aligning the spine. Although the main method of treatment is spinal manipulation, chiropractors also use other therapies to treat their patients. Listed below are a few of these and we recommend consulting with your doctor to find out which treatment is best for you.
 
Ultrasound
Therapeutic ultrasound is a form of deep heat therapy created by sound vibrations. Sound waves penetrate tissues deep in the body, creating a pumping action and heat. This micro massage helps reduce swelling, decrease pain and stiffness and improve blood flow.‚Äč
Ice
Ice therapy is often used to reduce swelling and pain caused by acute injuries or flare-ups of a chronic condition. Properly applied ice reduces the temperature of the tissues directly on or below the surface of the skin. This cooling numbs painful areas, constricts blood vessels and helps relax muscle spasms.
 
Heat
Heat when applied to the skin, enlarges blood vessels below the surface and relaxes muscle tissue. Heat therapy can calm irritated tissues and increase circulation to help speed the healing process.
 
Traction Massage
During this therapy, the patient lies face up on a special table while a system of rollers moves up and down the spine. The rollers gently stretch the spinal joints, massage the muscles of the back and help increase mobility.
Electro-Muscle Stimulation
Light electrical pulses are transmitted to specific areas of the body through electrodes placed on the skin. This therapy can be used to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and swelling and help reduce muscle atrophy.
 
Therapeutic Exercise
Keeping muscles strong and flexible is an important step in the treatment and prevention of back, neck and extremity problems. Specific strengthening exercises can promote joint health, prevent muscle deterioration and protect the body from new or recurring injuries.
 
Note
Make sure your doctor informs you of all the risks and benefits associated with a professional treatment. Contact us to discuss whether we can provide any of these treatment types for you.
