Chiropractic Adjustment Techniques
Chiropractic Adjustment Techniques
Manual/Diversified Chiropractic Technique (DCT)- this technique involves your chiropractor manually placing pressure to manipulate and correct subluxations in the spine in order to restore proper movement in the area. This is a safe and effective way of relieving stiffness and pain.
Thompson Drop-Table Technique- this technique involves the chiropractor using the drop tables to perform a full spine adjusting technique that emphasizes high-velocity, low amplitude, and some low-force procedures. This is a less aggressive yet still safe and effective way of correcting subluxations.
Activator Adjusting Instrument- this technique involves your chiropractor using a small handheld instrument to deliver a quick low-force impulse to spinal joints with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted joint or localized area of the spine. This can correct subluxations or put enough pressure on trigger points to help release tension.
Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT)- this technique involves your chiropractor utilizing the use of SOT "blocks" or wedges which are positioned precisely under the pelvis. This uses the patient's body weight and occasionally gentle pressure from the practitioner to help to make corrections of misalignments in the body.
Bio Electrical Stimulation Technique (BEST) - This technique involves your chiropractor using a non-forceful, energy balancing, hands-on approach to find and release blocked energies in the body. This is used to help reestablish the full healing potential of the body itself.
Applied Kinesiology (AK)- this technique involves your chiropractor using muscle testing, a manual and non-invasive technique used to retrieve information from the body. This helps the practitioner to locate precisely where the body is, signaling that it may have an issue.
Acupuncture- this technique involves your chiropractor using an age-old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine where a certified practitioner places very thin needles at specific points in the body to relieve pain or treat many other conditions.
Cryotherapy- literally means "cold therapy," this is a type of therapy where the body is exposed to extremely cold temperatures for several minutes to help alleviate inflammation and pain in the body. We use ice packs typically in combination with another therapy to aid in immediate pain relief.
Hydrotherapy- refers to using water as therapy in any form. We use a hydrocollator unit that keeps the heat packs at high temperatures until they are ready to be used. The heat packs are typically used in combination with another therapy to aid in soothing and relaxing the muscles.
This therapy is a type of electrical stimulation (e-stim) made by the interception of two electrical mediums of varying frequencies that work together to successfully stimulate large impulse fibers. The frequencies interfere with the pain transmission messages at the spinal cord level to help alleviate pain. Many times we will use this in combination with cryotherapy.
This therapy is a form of high-frequency electrical wave stimulation (e-stim) that uses electricity to contract muscle tissue which is intended to help strengthen muscles and accelerate healing/recovery. Many times we will use this in combination with hydrotherapy.
This therapy is a table that patients lay on and feels much like a massage by softly putting the spinal column in motion while simultaneously stretching the muscles and ligaments. This is used to passively manipulate the spine and restore the body to proper ranges of motion.
This therapy is a handheld device that is manually held in a place of the affected area, which uses low levels of light to penetrate the tissue without heating or to damage the skin. This is designed to stimulate healing, repair tissue, reduce pain/inflammation, and provide other benefits for patients.
This therapy is a handheld device that is manually moved around the affected area, which uses mechanical vibrations from high-frequency sound waves on the skin and soft tissue. This is used to relieve pain and to promote tissue healing.
This therapy uses a state-of-the-art Spinal Decompression Table where the bones of the spine are slowly and methodically separated by very gently pulling the affected area. This provides relief by reducing the pressure within the spinal discs of either the lumbar (low back) or cervical (neck) spine.
This therapy uses stationary movements and exercises to help with immediate pain relief, prevent stiffness, and regain range of motion in muscles
This therapy is an exercise-based program designed to strengthen and improve your level of function and hold your adjustments longer as well. We have a full gym in our facility that is utilized for this type of therapy.
