7 Chiropractor Treatments We Offer
1. Chiropractic Manual Adjustment
A chiropractic manual adjustment could be all you need if you’re suffering from back pain. Our chiropractors use their hands to manipulate the spine by flexing and adjusting spinal joints. This manual procedure may relieve pressure on spinal joints and improves nerve function. A successful chiropractic manual adjustment reduces pain and enhances joint function.
2. Soft Tissue Manipulation
Soft Tissue Manipulation (STM) is a manual treatment method applied to soft tissues such as muscles, ligaments, fascia, tendons, and nerves. Chiropractors use hands-on techniques on your soft tissues to relax muscles, reduce pain, improve mobility, decrease inflammation and treat injuries.
The process involves stretching the soft tissues to release muscle tension and improve blood circulation. If you have recently undergone surgery, repetitive strain, or trauma, STM may help treat adhesions within your soft tissues.
3. Active Release Technique
Active Release Technique (ART) is a diagnostic and treatment technique for soft tissues. The technique aims at removing adhesion within soft tissues to relieve tissue tension. Adhesion in the soft tissues may result from overload after repetitive use.
Vidal Integrated Health chiropractors evaluate the soft tissues for adhesions by using touch to feel and diagnose the described area to pinpoint the root problem. After locating the adhesions, our chiropractors encourage patients to stretch and move until they feel full release with assisted movement.
4. Myofascial Release
Myofascial release is a soft tissue technique that can treat myofascial pain syndrome. This pain may result from sensitivity and tightness in the myofascial tissues and usually originates from the “trigger points.” Our chiropractors gently move their hands along the myofascial tissues during treatment to locate stiff or tightened spots.
After locating the trigger points, chiropractors massage and stretch them to release pressure and tightness. Our chiropractors repeat this process until there is a full release of tension throughout your body.
5. Myofascial Decompression
Myofascial decompression, also known as cupping, can help treat musculoskeletal disorders and injuries. Chiropractors create suction inside cups and place them over areas on your body with tightness or restriction.
This method creates a lifting mechanism that helps stretch tight muscles and unbind adhesions. It may increase blood flow to encourage healing and alleviates pain.
6. Stretching Muscles
Muscle stretching in chiropractic treatment sessions helps keep muscles and joints relaxed and mobile. It’s a great way of easing pain so you can get back in action. Our chiropractors use controlled muscle stretching to release any muscular spasms that may inhibit full joint mobility. After these sessions, chiropractors guide you on what to do at home as a continuous treatment plan.
7. Chiropractic Traction
Chiropractic traction is an effective treatment that eases pain and promotes healing in the spine, skeletal system, and muscles. Our chiropractors use hands or weights to pull apart the intervertebral discs and stretch the muscles and ligaments. It can help treat muscular and skeletal disorders and injuries to your joints, muscles, vertebrae, and ligaments.
In the case of slipped discs, chiropractic traction may help reposition them to ease friction resulting from friction. It also relieves inflammation resulting from herniated or bulging discs, allowing swelling to subside and pain to minimize.
