Spinal Adjustment or Manipulation
A spinal adjustment or manipulation is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place due to normal daily
activity or trauma such as a car accident.
An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor using their hands or an instrument to move vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you’re cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.
Physical rehabilitation is important for your health and wellness for full mobility and injury recovery. We are certified to recommend rehab techniques to build back your strength and range of motion based on your injury and potential.
Active Release Technique (ART)
ART is a soft tissue technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Some of the conditions that ART can help resolve include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Shin splints
- Shoulder pain
- Plantar fasciitis
Graston Technique® is a technique that is used to help with the healing of soft tissue injuries. The Graston instruments provide a variety of benefits. As mentioned on the Graston Technique website, these benefits include:
- Decreases overall time of treatment
- Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
- Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
- Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
Our doctors have been certified to use this technique and will determine if this technique is the right fit for your wellness needs during your first appointment.
We use RockTape brand kinesiology tape to improve blood flow, allow increased mobility and healing to joints and muscles. The flexibility of this athletic tape allows the athlete to continue movement of their muscles to treat muscle and joint growth or pain problems. Additional benefits of kinesiology tape as mentioned on the RockTape website are:
- Correct muscle function
- Improved circulation
- Pain relief
- Repositioning of the joints or muscles
The doctors at Back in Balance are certified in the use of RockTape for not only pain control but also for increased performance. During your first chiropractic appointment, the doctors will let you know if this is a proper solution to your athletic or personal injury.
An ultrasound is performed on the affected area which stimulates the muscles using high frequency sound waves. At Back in Balance, we use ultrasound therapy to help treat soft tissue swelling, muscle tightness or spasm and other soft tissue or muscle injuries.
Electronic Muscle Stimulation
EMS or electronic muscle stimulation uses electric impulses to stimulate muscles similar to how the nervous system works. Through the stimulation of the muscles in concern, we use EMS to treat muscle spasm and pain.
Spinal decompression uses a controlled device to make spine and disc adjustments. It is used as an alternate treatment to spinal decompression surgery. We use it to treat disc pathology, disc herniations, bulging discs, and other symptoms.
