Nerve pain? Sciatica? Radiculopathy? No problem! The Flexion Distraction Technique is a therapeutic form of spinal manipulation that involves a specialized table to create a gentle motion. A doctor applies pressure through their palm to the spine and then moves the lower part of the table in and out, followed by a flexion movement and then back to a neutral position. This technique can be applied to the cervical and lumbar regions. It is used to widen apophyseal joints, reduce tension on the posterior disc, lower the pressure inside the disc, and open up intervertebral foraminal spaces to restore normal nerve pathways. This technique is particularly beneficial for those suffering from intervertebral disc diagnosis, post-surgical patients, or those who may not respond well to standard spinal manipulation.
Through the doctor's hands, a high-velocity, low-amplitude impulse is applied to the joints of the body, signifying the practice of Diversified Spinal Manipulation.
By using Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, our skilled chiropractic practitioners can quickly identify and address areas of restriction in fascia and muscle tissue. This technique can reduce healing time, disrupt scar tissue and adhesions, reduce chronic inflammation, and increase blood flow to the area. Additionally, IASTM can be combined with any other chiropractic technique and may also be employed for sprain and strain injuries that can't endure other treatments. Alternatively, practitioners may utilize Myofascial Release Technique by manually manipulating trigger points or using a Hypervolt/Theragun.
This treatment method serves to speed up healing, enhance the body's defense mechanisms, ease distress, get rid of contracted muscles, and heighten circulation while decreasing inflammation. It is a substitute approach employed for people who may not be able to tolerate traditional myofascial release therapy or deep tissue massage.
Electrical stimulation uses an electrical current to bolster muscles, obstruct pain signals, and enhance blood circulation. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation is a type of therapy that utilizes low-voltage electricity to offer pain relief. A TENS device comprises a battery-powered gadget that transmits electric pulses through electrodes on the epidermis near the affected nerves or trigger points. It is presumed that the electric current arouses nerve cells, stopping the transmission of pain messages and changing the experience of pain. Alternatively, nerve stimulation may elevate the levels of endorphins, the body's inborn analgesic, thus avoiding the recognition of pain.
A mild yet powerful approach is achieved by applying SOT blocks to the pelvis's iliac crest and the hip's greater trochanter. This approach is proven to help restore the proper function of the pelvis and relieve discomfort in the lower back and sciatic areas.
This is the activator is a safe and alternative method to put an impulse into the joints and bring information to the nervous system. It is used on certain spinal conditions, individuals scared of manual therapy, or even acute injuries. The activator has precision and gentle stimulation which helps aid the doctor in providing you relief and treating your condition.
