In addition to adjustments, multiple therapies and modalities are used to further benefit the patient. Having patient’s perform therapies both in and out of the office helps to promote faster healing and reinforce neuroplasticity within the nervous system. This also allows patients to go longer time frames between visits once a wellness plan is achieved. Below are some of the various techniques used.
Both in and out of the office exercises are given to patients. Exercises are given to improve weak muscle, improve core control, improve balance, restore posture and return function to weak areas of the nervous system.
Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Pin & Stretch Technique, Active Release
Stretching, Post Isometric Release Stretch Technique, Joint pumping
Traction Therapy (Manual and Mechanical)
SpiderTech achieves its therapeutic effect naturally by either providing structural support or by altering the patient’s sensation of pain which is dependent on how the tape is applied.Structurally, if the tape is stretched and applied over muscles in a shortened position it will provide a mechanical barrier to potentially harmful postures and ranges of motion.On a neurosensory level, SpiderTech helps to normalize the alterations in neurological signaling that occur after injury or as a result of chronic pain.The tape provides enhanced sensory stimulation which essentially disrupts and diminishes signals of pain. What is revolutionary about this is the effect of the continuous stimulation provided by wearing SpiderTech on the skin may help to break the cycle of chronic pain.The bottom line is a decrease in the sensation of pain along with normalizing the neural drive to the muscles involved resulting in restored mobility and strength. SpiderTech therapy means less pain and more activity for more people.
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that uses low-level laser or light-emitting diodes to alter cellular function. It has primarily been show useful in the short-term treatment of acute pain cause by rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, tendonitis, and some chronic joint disorders. LLLT has also been useful in the treatment of both acute and chronic neck pain.
NUTRITIONAL CONSULTATION & COACHING
When improving health, reducing pain and rewiring the brain, the correct building blocks must be present. If required the doctor will address dietary changes to promote weight loss, reduce inflammation or control autoimmune responses.
