Herniated and degenerated discs are among the most common causes of lower back pain. Spinal Decompression Therapy is specifically designed to treat these types of conditions. It is a medical fact that damaged intervertebral discs seldom heal, as the discs are constantly under pressure. Spinal Decompression Therapy uses clinically proven principles to relieve pressure on vital structures of the lumbar spine and spinal nerves, reducing pressure inside the discs. The object of decompression therapy is to reduce the pressure inside the disc and facilitate the transfer of fluids, nutrients, and oxygen back inside the disc to allow optimal healing.
The Activator Adjusting Method uses an instrument referred to as the “Activator Adjusting Instrument” to provide the adjustive force. It is a small, hand held device that offers an impulse to the area being treated. This form of treatment is assessed by using the leg length analysis. Leg length analysis utilizes a series of body movements, challenges and leg checks to determine the location and listing of subluxated joints. The correction of the subluxations found with the leg checks is done with the Activator Adjusting Instrument (AAI).
The Activator is the most widely used chiropractic instrument. Studies show improvement with the Activator Method. It also has been compared to other techniques and proven to be just as effective. This means that for many patients an Activator adjustment could very well lead to the same outcome as a manual adjustment. This offers chiropractors and patients an alternative to manual adjusting when it is preferred for clinical reasons.
Therapeutic Massage is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are many types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities). People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons; for example, to reduce stress and anxiety, to relax muscles, to rehabilitate injuries, to reduce pain and to promote overall health and wellness.
Custom foot orthotics are designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look similar to insoles, but are biomedical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot while you walk. We understand that everyone is different, which is why custom foot orthotics are made just for you.
