Chiropractic care involves a hands-on approach to addressing musculoskeletal conditions. Chiropractic manipulation, often called an adjustment, is used to treat restricted joints, reduce stress on the surrounding muscles, and increase range of motion. This treatment option is often used for low back pain, neck pain, shoulder restrictions or achiness, ankle restrictions, and other musculoskeletal concerns.
Laser therapy uses a process called photobiomodulation which promotes healthy cell growth. The wavelength from the laser stimulates cellular metabolism deep in the tissue to help reduce inflammation, reduce pain, and accelerate healing. This treatment option is often used for low back pain, acute disc injuries, tendinitis, soft tissue injuries, shoulder or neck pain, plantar fasciitis, and many other conditions.
Class IV Laser Therapy
Spinal decompression is a therapy used to help reduce low back or neck pain. A harness or belt is wrapped around the pelvis and tightly secured. A series of gentle traction helps reduce tension in the vertebrae and takes pressure off the discs and surrounding nerves. Spinal compression is often used for symptoms such as sciatica, radiculopathy down the arm, or herniated discs.
Therapeutic exercises are often encouraged as part of the treatment plan to help strengthen surrounding muscles, improve range of motion, and reinforce long term stability. If one muscle group is tight or sore, it is often a result of the antagonist muscle group (the opposite muscle group) being weak and over stretched. Therapeutic exercises help target certain weak or over stretched muscles to help take tension off the sore and tighter muscles. These are often used for neck tightness, low back stiffness, shoulder impingements, knee pain, and other musculoskeletal conditions.
