Chiropractic

Our office uses instrument, manual and extremity manipulation consisting of both force and non-force techniques. This gives us the versatility to treat all types of patients. Some of the Chiropractic techniques we utilize are Gonstead, SOT, Activator, CBP, Pettibone, PST, Diversified, and Thompson. Some of the mobilization techniques we utilize are PIR, PNF and Flex building.

Decompression

The KRD L 2000 is a Nonsurgical spinal decompression that is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve lower back pain. Spinal decompression works by stretching the spine changing the Biomechanics of force and postion. This change takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine.

Therapy

The treatment of physical dysfunction or injury by the use of and the application of therapeutic modalities, intended to restore or facilitate normal function or development. Our Office provides therapeutic modalities for the relief of pain, muscle spasm and inflammation. These therapies include Ultrasound, PEMF, Interferential, High Volt, Low Volt, Russian Stim, Microcurrent, Cryo Cuff, Vibration, Hydro Massage, Laser, and Anodyne Therapy.

Rehabilitation

Functional Restoration is a rehabilitation program for acute and chronic pain that aims to increase physical functioning, improve pain- coping skills, promote the return to a productive lifestyle at home or at work, and limit the need for future treatments. Functional restoration can be defined as the process by which an individual acquires the skills, knowledge and behavioral changes necessary to achieve maximal functional independence and the capacity to regain or maximize activities of daily living. Our office utilizes all types of High and Low tech rehab procedures.

Functional Evaluation

Functional Evaluation is a structured process of observing and measuring an individual’s deficits. The individual is evaluated in order to identify potential performance deficits, safety issues, functional abilities, strengths, skills, and capacity to perform specific activites of dailt living including those tasks necessary for their occupation and to maintain their household. Our office performs all types of functional evaluation including FMS, SFMA and computerized testing.  The computerized testing utilizes the Microgate OptoJump and JTech Tracker systems.

Performance

Performance training considers the strengths and weaknesses of the individual regarding their work, sports and activities of daily living and at the same time identifies their risk of sustaining injuries. High-quality training and injury prevention are closely related and both should be specific. The primary aim should be to improve physical fitness, technique, and tactics for their particular activity as well as to reduce their risk of injuries. Injuries usually occur if the biomechanical load becomes higher than the tolerance of the potential structure. This can occur either if the biomechanical load is too high or if the tolerance against a certain biomechanical load is reduced.
