Chiropractic Adjustments

Hands-on healthcare focusing on the neuromusculoskeletal system without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractors are “portal of entry” practitioners, meaning you do not need a referral by another health care provider.

Chiropractic has been around since the 1890s. A health care innovation of the time, its philosophy centered on treating the whole body with high velocity / low amplitude (HVLA) manual adjustments. The modern chiropractor’s toolbag has gotten considerably more diverse since then, but their most powerful treatment tool by far is the adjustment. Other professions of note utilizing adjusting techniques include Doctors of Osteopathy (D.O.), and Doctors of Physical Therapy (D.P.T.).

The purpose of the adjustment itself is to treat limited joint motion, muscle spasm, nerve irritation, and inflammation. With a typical chiropractic adjustment, you’ll likely hear a “crack” or “pop!”. Find out more about the sound here!

Active Release

Active Release

Bust up tricky adhesions!

Active Release Technique (A.R.T.)

A diagnostic hands-on technique used to improve tissue mobility and decrease pain by breaking up soft tissue adhesions. These adhesions tend to develop naturally over time with injuries or repetitive stress, but can severely impact range of motion. Chiropractors are the largest group practicing the technique due to their ability to diagnose and manually treat their patients.

Instrument Assisted

Instrument Assisted

Powerful soft tissue manipulation.

IASTM

Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization is exactly that – using a tool to help diagnose and treat soft tissue conditions. It stems from Gua Sha, a traditional Chinese healing technique over 2000 years old. In the late 1980s it came to the west in the form of surgical stainless steel tools designed for the modern practitioner, packaged as Graston Technique. Since then, many different tool shapes and techniques have been engineered, but the use of the tools remains the same: decrease pain, improve circulation, decrease adhesion, and even remodeling old scar tissue. This is a staple tool for the modern sports chiropractor, being used daily on everyone from Olympians to NFL players to the high school track athlete.

Kinesiology Tape

Kinesiology Tape

Enhance your performance.

Kinesiology Tape

K-tape is the elastic, adhesive cloth that you see all over the athletes these days. It was designed in the 1970’s by Dr. Kenzo Kase as an alternative to the traditional rigid athletic tape. When applied, the tape is designed to move and stretch with skin while decreasing pain, decreasing swelling, and improving proprioception (balance and coordination). Because of its elastic properties, we also use it for cueing posture or helping offload the stresses of a pregnant belly! There are many brands of k-tape, most notably KT, Kinesio, TheraTape, SpiderTech, and RockTape.
