Chiropractic Therapies and Techniques
There are various chiropractic therapies and techniques that help to manage certain conditions. Some of our chiropractic therapies and techniques include:
- Therapeutic Massage: Therapeutic massage is a chiropractic approach to help relieve musculoskeletal pain. Massage helps reduce swelling, increase blood circulation, reduce muscle pain and spasms, relax muscles, help with motion, and promote recovery.
- Spinal Decompression: Spinal decompression uses regulated pressure and force on the spine to gently stretch it and relieves severe conditions. Some of these conditions include neck pain, back pain, sciatica, bulging or herniated discs, injured or diseased spinal nerve roots, and worn spinal joints.
- Myofascial Release: The myofascial release approach uses gentle pressure on the manufacturing connective tissue. It helps to relax contracted muscles, stimulates muscle stretch reflex, and improves blood and lymphatic circulation. These benefits help to ease skeletal muscle pain and immobility.
- Trigger Point Therapy: It is an approach that applies pressure on a trigger point to relax and release muscles. Trigger point therapy promotes blood flow to the muscle, which helps to relieve pain and stress.
Stretching and Strengthening Exercises for Chiropractic Care
Exercise plays an essential role in your recovery. They can help to improve your range of motion control of body functions and ease the pain. Stretching exercises are especially helpful in treating chronic pain injuries and other musculoskeletal problems. These exercises, such as aerobic exercises, help with fluid drainage and blood circulation to reduce inflammation and oxygen supply to the tissues.
Exercise also helps to ease muscle spasms and reduce the risk of injury. Stretching exercises help you gain stability by reducing injury to muscle groups that maintain your symmetry, posture, and balance. There are various types of stretching and strengthening exercises, and each depends on your condition. Our chiropractor can help determine which stretching and strengthening exercises are best for treating your condition.
