Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
Myofascial Release Technique (MRT) is a soft tissue treatment that allows for the release and breakdown of scar tissue in muscles, fascia and ligaments. This method is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore normal range of motion. The goal of myofascial therapy is to stretch and loosen the fascia so that it and other contiguous structures can move more freely.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is an evidence-based form of therapy that enables clinicians to effectively break down the buildup of scar tissue and to initiate an inflammatory response which will aide in proper healing of the tissue. The stainless steel instruments provide the clinician with the ability to locate restriction and allow treating of the affected area with the appropriate amount of pressure.
Conditions Treated by MRT and IASTM:
- IT band Pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Carpal Tunnel
- Shoulder Pain
- Knee Pain
- Tennis/Golfers Elbow
- Shin Splints
High frequency mechanical vibrations that produce changes in the tissue through wave formation and heat. Ultrasound accelerates the normal resolution time of the inflammatory process by attracting more mast cells to the site of injury, which can be beneficial in the acute phase of tissue damage. It also allows for the breakdown of calcium deposits, promotes tissue relaxation, and brings local blood flow to the site of treatment.
Interferental/Electric Muscle Stim
An alternating current beneficial for decreasing pain and edema through the attachment of electrode pads. Working on a frequency that is specific to each patient, the electrical current decreases a patient's pain while helping heal the injured tissue by promoting blood flow to the area.
