Diversified technique is the most widely utilized chiropractic technique. The adjustment consists of a high velocity, low amplitude thrust delivered by hand. This technique is accepted to be both safe and effective for the treatment of neck pain, back pain, and headaches.
The main goals of diversified manipulation are to decrease pain, restore proper movement by increasing range of motion, and correct joint dysfunction.
Myofascial Release is an alternative medicine therapy used by specialists to relax contracted muscles and overcome muscle immobility. The ultimate goal is to decrease pain and improve range of motion to the affected area.
Depending on the condition of the muscles that support your spine, your treatment may include 10-15 minutes of myofascial release therapy.
There are many benefits of heat therapy and electric muscle stimulation. Ultimately, the purpose of these treatments is to decrease muscle tension and alleviate pain prior to an adjustment. Muscle stimulation works by interrupting the painful nerve signals that are being sent to the brain.
Although we primarily utilize manual techniques in our office, we also have the option of providing instrument assisted adjustments. We will recommend instrument assisted adjustments when we believe that manual manipulation will not be well tolerated by the patient. For example, some patients in severe pain initially require a less invasive approach to treatment before providing manual adjustments. This type of treatment may also be indicated for older individuals who suffer from diseases that decrease bone mass and strength.
