A manual procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills developed during the intensive years of chiropractic education. The chiropractor typically uses his/her hands to adjust the joints of the body, particularly the spine, but sometimes in the extremities, in order to reduce pain and restore or enhance joint function. Chiropractic adjustments are highly controlled and rarely cause discomfort. The chiropractor adapts the procedure to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients often note positive changes in their symptoms immediately post-adjustment.
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
This techniques are instrument assisted soft tissue-based modalities which enhance the clinician's ability to detect and treat fascial adhesions and restrictions, clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating both acute and chronic conditions.
Trigger Point bodywork involves cross-friction massage on very specific points of the body with the goal of balancing and improving fascial biomechanics within a certain kinetic chain of movement.
Static Stretching involves a gradual and controlled elongation of the fascia though the full range of motion (without pain), which is held for 15-30 seconds.
PFS Stretching Postfacilitation stretching is a proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) technique used to treat chronic tight fascia. This method is an isometric contraction held for 7-10 seconds followed by 12-20 seconds of stretching. The goal is to increase range of motion.
PIR Stretching Postisometric relaxation stretching has been used for “muscle energy procedures” or techniques (MET) for joint mobilization to increased range of motion by relaxing muscular spasm which limit joint range of motion. A muscle is brought to slight resistance at end range and is held for 10 seconds, after which the patient relaxes the muscle. The relaxation stretch may last for 10 seconds or more until a new barrier is reached.
