Chiropractic Treatment

Types of Treatment

I use an integration of active and therapeutic treatments for care plans. Most commonly: chiropractic and massage is combined with healing technologies, such as cold laser. Additionally, visits include posture correction, exercise and nutritional consultation

  • Massage

    I use myofascial release and massage to assist the healing process. It supports the chiropractic adjustment, encourages tissue healing, and it feels good. Most commonly I use it for pain relief and correcting biomechanics like rotator cuff symptoms.

  • Vertitrac

    The Vertitrac system is a belt that provides “Active Decompression” of the lumbar spine. It is a powerful tool if you are looking for help with disc pain and surgery free rehabilitation from Disc injury.

  • Kinesiology Taping

    Taping has evolved to elastic based tapes. The new tape helps with support, correction, healing, and can last on the skin 3-5 days. Great for shoulder rotator cuff conditions and feet conditions.

  • Cold Laser

    Cold laser uses new technology to help improve healing quality and reduce the healing time. It is used with conditions that involve pain, inflammation, and tissue healing. Most commonly I use the Cold laser supplementary to the other body work. Cold laser is available for primary plans as well.

Benefit of Cold Lasers

  • Pain Reduction

  • Reduced healing time - Increased

  • Easy to apply

  • Extremely safe

  • Non-Toxic

  • Non-Invasive

  • No side effects or pain

  • Cost effective for both the practitioner and patient

  • Highly effective in treating ailments (more than 90% efficacy)

  • Superior alternative to analgesics, NSAID's and other medications

  • Reduces the need for surgery

  • Works synergistically with other modalities like Chiro, Acupuncture, and PT

General Therapeutic Laser Biological Effects

  • Increased Cell Growth

    Laser photons accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.

  • Increased Metabolic Activity

    Photons initiate a higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP).

  • Faster Wound Healing

    Cold laser photons stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue.

  • Anti-Inflammatory Action

    Laser photons reduce swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints resulting in enhanced joint mobility.

  • Increased Vascular Activity

    Laser photons induce temporary vasodilation that increases blood flow to effected areas.

  • Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation

    Laser photons reduce the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from: cuts, scratches, burns or post surgery.

  • Stimulated Nerve Function

    Laser photon exposure speeds the process of nerve cell reconnect ion to bring the numb areas back to life.

  • Pain Reduction

    Almost all systems have a mode of operation specifically designed to reduce pain.
