Extremity adjustments are a common chiropractic treatment. Sometimes referred to as manipulations, chiropractors perform this treatment on patients by manipulating the bones in the extremities in order to reduce nerve irritation while also improving the individual’s motion range and comfort levels. Any extremity that is experiencing abnormal function or limited mobility can benefit from a chiropractic adjustment. Generally, our patients feel immediate relief after an extremity adjustment has been performed.
Whether a person is suffering from a chronic condition or recovering from an injury, physical rehabilitation may be necessary in order to improve the body’s functionality and general condition. Our chiropractors specialize in creating personalized physical rehabilitation plans that provide the patients with a path forward. In most cases, patients are able to perform their rehabilitation exercises in their own home, which can increase the success of their overall recovery.

Muscles that are not moving or functioning properly are at risk of breaking down or becoming permanently damaged. At our practice, specialized chiropractic techniques and adjustments are used to achieve muscle correction in our patients. We work to identify dysfunctional muscles and provide our patients with the comprehensive results they need.
Soft Tissue Mobilization
At our practice, chiropractors utilize this hands-on technique in order to break adhesions affecting muscles and ligaments. Adhesions are common after an injury, as the tissue tries to heal itself. Unfortunately, the inflammation that results is uncomfortable and debilitating at times. Soft tissue mobilization can minimize or eliminate those adhesions.
Scar Tissue Therapy
Scar tissue is not just a cosmetic issue, but it’s also a physical issue for many patients. Our chiropractors use scar tissue therapy treatments to minimize scar tissue, preventing it from spreading further in the area or from limiting motion or functionality in that part of the body.
Modalities are often used to treat our patients who are suffering from chronic pain. This treatment can be applied using heat or ice as well as traction and ultrasound. Modalities work to improve circulation, reduce swelling and minimize muscle spasm. It is particularly effective when it comes to relieving pain and improving individual comfort.
IFC (Interferential Current)
This is a specific modality that requires the use of a interferential current machine. The machine transfers electrical current to the affected area of the individual. Similar to other modalities, it can reduce swelling and minimize discomfort. This treatment is often used for deep tissue repair.
Corrective Exercise Therapy
Corrective exercise therapy is a holistic regimen in which the chiropractor will create a exercise plan to help treat an effected area. Patients who opt for this type of treatment will not use medication as a supplement to their treatment plan.
Muscle groups can become dysfunctional if they are not properly conditioned or if they are out of balance. This results in pain and can sometimes disrupt an individual’s mobility or range of motion, and can ultimately cause the joint to become dysfunctional as well. Our chiropractors are able to detect musculoskeletal deficiency and can use biomechanical correction techniques to restore the muscle groups as well as the affected joints.
At our practice, we believe it is important to address the discomfort and the symptoms that patients are experiencing, but we also believe in promoting a healthy lifestyle. Through our wellness counseling services, we provide our patients with information and resources on making the right choices in their daily lives. From recommending specific activities to addressing dietary concerns, we attempt to treat the whole patient rather than just alleviate the specific symptoms they are experiencing.
Our chiropractors provide patients with nutritional counseling that can help them make healthy dietary choices on a daily basis. Through nutritional counseling, we offer patients personalized information and resources on creating a balanced diet and using supplements effectively. Our goal is to care for the whole patient.
