Therapies

The main method of chiropractic treatment is spinal manipulation which is beneficial in most care practices. Other treatments available that offer relief from pain, discomfort, or injury may also be included. Some of the treatments offered at Chiropractic Wellness Center include:

  • Therapeutic Exercise: Specific strength exercises for patients with back, neck and extremity problems are beneficial to help decrease pain, prevent muscle deterioration, promote joint health, increase strength, stability and rage of motion, also helping to protect against new or recurring injuries.
  • Therapeutic Stretches: Stretching is an important way to prevent scar tissue from forming following an injury. Even after the healing is done, continuing a regular stretching regimen helps keep tissue flexible, aids in mobility, and even reducing the risk of re-injury.
  • Traction (DTX): Traction devices are applied to decompress areas of the spine and reduce nerve root pressure, relieving pain and promoting healing.
  • Soft Tissue Manual Therapy: Hands on soft tissue therapy improves the function of the muscles, ligaments, tendons and joint capsules.
  • Physical Therapy Modalities: (Muscle Stimulation) Using light electrical pulses transmitted to specific areas of the body through electrodes placed on the skin. Assists in reducing pain and/or inflammation, treats muscle spasms, and to reduce muscle atrophy.
