Chiropractors believe that misaligned vertebrae, referred to as subluxation, can interfere with normal body function, and if left uncorrected, can result in muscle and/or organ dysfunction and other imbalances.
We can treat:
In addition to chiropractic adjustment, we offer a variety of therapies that are designed to reduce tissue congestion, decrease muscle spasm, and decrease the time it takes to heal injured tissue.
E-stim - electrical muscle stimulation uses light electrical pulses that are transmitted to specific areas of the body through electrodes placed on the skin. This therapy is beneficial for pain relief or to reduce inflammation.
TENS - (transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation) unit is a small, battery-powered, portable muscle stimulation machine that can be used to help control pain. This treatment is recommended to help patients get through periods of severe (acute) pain.
Traction - traction devices are applied to elongate areas of the spine. This treatment helps separate the vertebrae resulting in disc decompression, reduced nerve root pressure, and decreased pain.
Ultrasound - Therapeutic ultrasound is a form of deep heat therapy created by sound waves. When applied to soft tissues and joints, the sound waves are a form of micro-massage that help reduce swelling, increase blood flow, and decrease pain, stiffness, and spasms.
