Flexion & Distraction

Flexion & Distraction Flexion-distraction and decompression is a well-researched, well-documented, and proven-effective technique for decompressing spinal nerves and treating low back pain. It's a gentle, non-surgical, no-force procedure that helps the spine heal properly - and keeps it as pain free as possible. Flexion-distraction decompresses and realigns the spine, thus....
• increasing intervertebral disc height, which removes tension on the anular fibers and the spinal nerve
  and improves circulation
• dropping pressure within the nucleus pulposus of the intervertebral disc
• increasing the area of the intervertebral foramen by up to 28%
• and essentially realigning the spine by restoring vertebral joints to their proper physiological relationships of motion.

Diversified Spinal Manipulation

Diversified Spinal Manipulation The forced passive flexion, extension, and rotation of vertebral segments, carrying the elements of articulation beyond the usual range of movement to the limit of anatomic range. Spinal manipulation may be used effectively in physiotherapy for the treatment of vertebral and sacroiliac dislocations, sprains, and adhesions. Adjustments, or manipulation as they’re sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident. When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can’t function at our peak.

Activator Method

Activator Method The Activator is a small hand-held instrument with a spring inside that delivers a high-speed, but gentle, thrust to the vertebrae or joint via a small rubber tip. Using the activator, rather than a: manual adjustment, the patient’s muscle resistance is not fighting against the adjustment. In contrast, a typical manual adjustment often requires the chiropractor to move the patient into positions that are not natural to the body, causing the patient to tense up. Patients remain in their own clothing during adjustments, making a visit to the chiropractor quick and uncomplicated.

Active Release Technique

Active Release Technique The goal of ART is to restore optimal texture, motion, and function of the soft tissue and release any entrapped nerves or blood vessels. This is accomplished through the removal of adhesions or fibrosis in the soft tissues via the application of specific protocols. Adhesions can occur as a result of acute injury, repetitive motion , and constant pressure or tension. ART® eliminates the pain and dysfunction associated with these adhesions. The types of conditions successfully treated with ART vary; Some of the more common conditions are:

     1 ) Carpal tunnel and other peripheral nerve entrapments.
     2 ) Spinal pain and dysfuntion.
     3 ) Tendonitis and other soft tissue inflammatory disorders of the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, and foot.
     4 ) Sciatica, TMJ, recurrent sprains and strains.

Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional Counseling Nutritional counseling is a type of assessment made which analyzes various health needs in regard to diet and exercise. Nutritional information helps people to set achievable health goals and teaches various ways of maintaining these goals throughout their lifetime. Diets have been proven time after time to be nothing more than a temporary fix. However, a lifestyle change is the key for many to achieve thier weight loss and fitness goals.
