Chiropractic Adjustment is specifically intended to correct vertebral subluxations. Spinal manipulation has documented use as far back as Hippocrates and the ancient Egyptians. The intention of a chiropractic adjustment is to affect or correct the alignment, motion and/or function of a vertebral joint, which in turn increase range of motion and decrease restrictions in movement. We want the body to be in proper alignment to help with proper biomechanics that help prevent injuries.
Injury Rehab is the process in which we take an injured joint or soft tissue and make it stronger by doing specific exercises. We like to start this process as soon as possible to get the patient/athlete back in the game. This also includes balance exercises that will help not only strengthen the joint or tissue but help neurologically with the injury.
DARI MOTION SCAN
DARI is able to score a subject’s motion health by averaging their performance and quality scores. DARI’s demographic breakdown enables the subject to be compared to relevant populations including specific age, sex, and sport demographics. This is a system designed to screen every athlete and identify their unique needs to improve performance and continually be ready to win. CLICK HERE to see this service in action!
Abnormal gait patterns (the way you walk) and muscle imbalances can lead to pain starting at your foot, knee, hip or back and lead to poor sport performance. Using a computer and video system captured of you, we can then analyze your mechanics. This analysis will help us identify any muscle imbalances or biomechanical problems that can be leading to pain or diminished function. Sometimes orthotics would be used to help stabilize your gait.
Myofascial Release and FDM are 2 type of manual therapy that target the fascia and muscles of the body. They are used to help increase flexibility and range of motion in the soft tissue. The treatment is intense and may lead to bruising but is effective in increasing speed of recovery. Usually after one treatment a patient will see decrease in pain and increase in movement.
Manual Therapy is a type of therapy that practitioners use when assessing musculo-skeletal issues. There is many different types of manual therapies that can be used. Here at this clinic we use Myofascial release, Fascial Distoration Model (FDM), manipulation of spinal and extremity segments.
PT’s examine each individual and develop a plan, using treatment techniques such as manual based treatments, therapeutic exercise and activities, modalities, and education to promote improved Range of Motion, Flexibility, Strength, Stabilization, Muscle Imbalances, and Proprioception. Therapy goals include increasing the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, prevent further injury, and return to sport or prior level of function.
