Chiropractic Adjustment

The most significant aspect of any chiropractic treatment is manipulation of the spine or joints of the extremities. This is called an adjustment or chiropractic manipulation. It is performed to improve range of motion, increase joint mobility, and promote normal function of the central nervous system. This adjustment is vital in restoring normal joint function and range of motion, improving overall joint health.

Interferential Current

Muscle stimulation or electrical stimulation may block the transmission of pain signals along nerves. Additionally, electrical stimulation has been shown to promote the release of endorphins, which are natural pain killers produced by the body.

X-Ray

In order to fully understand what is happening in a patient's musculoskeletal system, Dr. Evans employs various diagnostic methods. One of the most important is the X-ray which gives her an indication of the alignment and structure of the bones in the body. With this information, she can plan her course of action to bring about positive results for the patient.

Soft Tissue Technique

Soft tissue techniques may include massage therapy, trigger point therapy, and myofascial stripping. These techniques are performed to decrease muscle spasms, reduce tension and increase blood flow to the area which removes toxins and supplies nutrients.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound a is deep heating therapy for resolving chronic inflammatory conditions. It has a micro-massage effect that enhances fluid exchange to promote tissue healing. Ultrasound has been shown to improve local blood supply and stimulate reconstructive cells, providing rapid, initial wound strength procedure.

Cupping

Cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine. Special cups are applied to the skin with suction for a few minutes then released. Cupping brings blood flow to the area, relaxes the muscles, and acts as type of deep tissue therapy.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy treatment helps reduce pain and inflammation, enhancing tissue healing—both in hard and soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, and even bones.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage therapy helps dissolve tension, ease muscle stiffness, and increase circulation and metabolism. Hot stones, when coupled with massage, also help to expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. It is an excellent additional to chiropractic care and should be consider as a component of your routine treatment plan.

Ice Therapy

Ice therapy reduces the inflammation and swelling that occurs after an injury. Ice also can act like a local anesthetic, numbing the sore tissues. Ice helps decrease pain/spasm reaction between the nerves and muscles.

Traction/Decompression

This procedure can be performed either by the doctor's hands or mechanically with the use of a table. It is commonly utilized to reduce pressure on the discs of the neck or lower back, relieving nerve pain, tissue inflammation, and pressure cause by herniated or bulging discs.

Rock Tape/Kinesiotape

This tape is used to promote proper form. It is applied so that when the muscles become fatigued, the tape helps to keep them in proper form for longer periods.
