CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT & MOBILIZATION

One of the most common therapies a chiropractor uses is spinal manipulative therapy (SMT), which can comprise a variety of adjustment techniques.


An adjustment is a safe and specific, high velocity, low amplitude thrust directed at a restricted or “locked” spinal segment.
Specific training in SMT allows chiropractors to provide highly-skilled and precise adjustments to the vertebrae of the spine, correcting joint motion to restore proper movement and improve function.

In general, adjustment do not hurt. In fact, many people report immediate relief after getting adjusted! Some people are worried about the ‘cracking’ sound during an adjustment but that is just believed to be the release of gas bubbles from the joint, similar to cracking your knuckles.


Although we love to work with spines, we are trained in treating any joint in the body!

The chiropractic mobilization is a slower form of the adjustment. The 'cracking' sound is not usually accompanied by the mobilization but they are still effective in restoring motion to your joints.

SOFT TISSUE THERAPY

Muscle Release Therapy is a technique used to help tight muscles relax. 

By placing pressure and tension on a muscle and having it move through its range of motion, will allow the muscle to relax.

This technique helps increase range of motion, increase blood flow and decrease muscle tension.

REFORMER PILATES & EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION

Exercise is a crucial part of the healing process. Each patient is prescribed a specific set of exercise and/or stretches that are tailored to them and their health. 

 

There is continued changes to the recommended exercises throughout the course of care as they continue to heal and progress. The exercise are reviewed at each appointment to ensure proper technique.

I also offer guided rehabilitation through reformer pilates at Peridot Wellness.

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a technique that involves inserting thin needles into targeted areas to stimulate the healing process. Acupuncture can lead to a release of endorphins that help tackle pain, and decrease inflammation. The needles also signal the nerves to normalize pathways in the nervous system that help restore muscle strength and improve movement.


Acupuncture can be used to treat conditions such as back pain, knee pain, sprains and strains, headaches, and more!

INSTRUMENT ASSISTED SOFT TISSUE THERAPY

Instrument assisted soft tissue therapy (IASTT) is a popular treatment for myofascial restrictions. IASTT uses specially designed instruments to provide a mobilizing effect to scar tissue and myofascial adhesions. It has been shown to increase range of motion as well as decrease pain in the area.
