Chiropractic care is a holistic approach that can help you manage musculoskeletal conditions and promote overall well-being. At Vida Integrated Health, our team of chiropractors is dedicated to addressing the root cause of pain and providing personalized care. Our treatment involves the manipulation of the spine and other joints in the body to provide immediate and long-term pain relief. Here’s how our chiropractor can help provide long-term pain relief. 

A Personalized Treatment Plan 

While some people seek chiropractic care for constant neck, back, or joint pains, others may have chronic conditions like arthritis and sciatica. At Vida Integrated Health, we can help different patients achieve long-term pain relief by creating personalized treatment plans. We thoroughly evaluate the patient’s medical history, current condition, and lifestyle to identify the underlying causes of their pain. Our team may order imaging tests like X-rays to understand more about your musculoskeletal system. 

Based on this comprehensive evaluation, we’ll develop a treatment plan tailored to meet the specific needs of each patient. The program may include a combination of chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic exercises, and lifestyle modifications to promote healing and reduce pain.

Chiropractic Techniques 

Our chiropractors are skilled in numerous effective chiropractic techniques that offer long-term pain relief. Depending on your assessment’s results, we may perform the following techniques:

Chiropractic Manual Adjustments 

This type of treatment involves individualized, targeted adjustments, usually performed one at a time. Our chiropractors perform these adjustments with their hands instead of using a machine. We may recommend them if you’re dealing with upper back and neck pain or spinal misalignments. Our manual chiropractic adjustments include the following:

Extraction adjustments: We perform these adjustments on patients with scar tissue buildup. Breaking up the scar tissue buildup alleviates cramps and muscle spasms. 

Compression adjustments: Our chiropractors focus on muscles on the spine during compression adjustments. These adjustments ease pain and increase one’s range of motion. 

Active Release Technique 

We use this technique to eliminate muscle adhesion from soft tissues like the fascia and offer pain relief. Adhesion may be caused by repetitive muscle use, excessive stress, or radiation treatment that causes tissue damage. Our chiropractors use touch to find muscle adhesion in patients’ pain points. After identifying them, we apply deep tension to the affected area while encouraging patients to stretch until they feel a release. This breaks up the adhesions, restoring proper blood flow and relieving pain. 

Myofascial Decompression 

Vida Integrated Health chiropractors use plastic vacuum cups during this treatment. We create suction in the cups and place them on the affected areas to help release the muscle tissue underneath. The negative pressure allows the fascia to relax, resulting in reduced pain.

Myofascial Release 

The myofascial release technique helps us to treat patients with myofascial pain syndrome. This pain disorder results from tightness in the myofascial tissues caused by trauma, overuse, injuries, or poor posture. Vida Integrated Health chiropractors use touch to identify the tightened spots. We then gently apply pressure on these spots and stretch them repeatedly until the tension eases. 

Chiropractic Traction

Chiropractic traction can help relieve neck and back pain by realigning the spine. It can also reduce inflammation resulting from herniated discs and pinched nerves. 

We use our hands to pull apart spinal discs and stretch the affected muscles for this treatment. Vida Integrated Health chiropractors can also use weights to help stretch the affected areas if there’s a lot of tension. Chiropractic traction can help reverse the effects of gravity on your spine. 

Collaborative Care 

 At Vida Integrated Health, we employ an integrated approach to pain management to optimize treatment outcomes. We may recommend using other treatment modalities like physical and massage therapy alongside your chiropractic treatments for faster and longer-lasting results. Our chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, functional medicine physicians, and acupuncturists have something to offer to support your healing. 

  • Chiropractors can help with spinal alignment and promote tissue healing through chiropractic adjustments.
  • Physical therapists can help you recover from your injuries and help you reach achieve optimal physical condition.
  • Massage therapists can help you relax and improve blood circulation to promote the body’s healing process.
  • Functional medicine physicians can assess how factors like diet contribute to pain and offer solutions to help manage the pain.
  • Acupuncturists can help the body regain balance and treat pain. 

Implementing a collaborative approach to treatment allows us to provide comprehensive care that supports long-term pain relief and promotes the overall well-being of our patients. 

Patient Empowerment 

At Vida Integrated Health, we empower our patients to take an active role in achieving long-term 

pain relief. We educate them on aspects like proper posture and their impact on their health. Our team also creates personalized exercise programs for patients to take home. This allows you to continue your healing journey after adjustment and can prevent pain reoccurrence.
