Chiropractic Manipulation and/or Mobilization
Chiropractic Manipulation is used to relieve pressure on joints, decrease inflammation, and promote nerve function. Common symptoms treated with manipulation include back, neck, shoulder, hip pain, and headaches. Other symptoms that may respond well are menstrual cramps, chronic pain syndromes, sinus problems, rib pain, and multiple extremity problems including Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, or carpal tunnel syndrome among many others.
Dr.s Moore and Menneto use various techniques depending on the symptoms and presentation of the patient to determine which technique would be best utilized for the best outcome.
In spinal manipulation, the practitioner uses their hands to apply a controlled, sudden force to a specific joint. Patients often hear popping noises, like when you crack your knuckles.
In spinal mobilization, practitioners use less forceful thrusts and more stretching. They will sometimes use an "activator," which is a small metal tool that applies force directly to one vertebra.
In addition to the Chiropractic adjustment, other therapies may be used including heat/cold therapy, traction therapy, cold laser, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, acupuncture, myofacial release, massage, or instrument assisted soft tissue therapy.
Ultrasound can produce many effects other than just the potential heating effect. It has been shown to cause increases in tissue relaxation, local blood flow, and scar tissue breakdown. The effect of the increase in local blood flow can be used to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation, and, according to some studies, promote healing. The intensity or power density of the ultrasound can be adjusted depending on the desired effect. A greater power density is often used in cases where scar tissue breakdown is the goal.
Nutrition Therapy/Functional Medicine
medical practice or treatments that focus on optimal functioning of the body and its organs, usually involving systems of holistic or alternative medicine.
The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)
Soft tissue injuries may occur with various trauma including repetitive stress such as postural stress from sitting at a desk, or tendonitis from repeated mechanics. Soft tissue injuries may also occur from blunt trauma or acute sprain strains such as car accidents causing whiplash or lifting injuries. All injuries may create swelling due to damaged tissues all as the body's way of promoting healing. Soft tissue may create adhesions or scar tissue over time that limit normal mechanics of the joint or range of motion.
IASTM utilizes tools that are able to trigger a healing process by causing a localized microtrauma to soft tissue adhesions or scar tissue. In doing this, the body can increase blood flow, increase range of motion, restore proper mechanics and promo
Acupuncture is the treatment through fine needle insertion to meridian channels that course throughout the body. The placement and insertion of these needles is specific to each patient. We use the acugraph, acupuncture examination tool to get your own PIE (Personal Integration Energy) score so you can receive the best results. Acupuncture is known to help treatment many ailments such as neck, lowback pain, headaches, digestive dysfunction, low energy levels and much more.
The Normatec is a pulsed recovery system that uses compressed air to massage the limbs of the body using peristaltic pulse dynamic compression. It has been proven to provide many benefits including improved circulation, mobilization of fluid, improved flexibility, and improvement of recovery. It is used by many Olympic athletes and rehabilitation facilities.
