Chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which trained specialists (chiropractors) use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a joint of the body. The goal of chiropractic adjustment is to correct structural alignment and improve the body's physical function.
This advanced method involves the use of acupuncture needles inserted into areas of tight muscle tissue or knots to decrease pain and increase function. Dry needling allows the body to self-heal. It’s effective at treating both chronic and acute conditions, such as headaches, plantar fasciitis, elbow pain, tendonitis, muscle spasm, scar tissue, sprains and muscle dysfunction.
Graston is an advanced method that reduces pain and increases function by using instruments to detect scar tissue affecting muscles, tendons and ligaments. Graston treats both chronic and acute conditions, such as plantar fasciitis, elbow pain, tendonitis, muscle spasm, scar tissue, sprains and muscle dysfunction.
Cupping is the process of drawing blood to the body’s surface by applying partially evacuated cups. This technique helps to relieve pain, increase blood flow and return the body to normal function.
