Chiropractic

Reduce / Fix Back, Neck, Joint, Jaw, Arthritis pain, Headaches, sports injuries and more

Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are based on the specific needs of the individual patient.

Joint Manipulation / Mobilization (Diversified & Activator)

Joint manipulation is commonly referred to as a chiropractic adjustment. They are performed as a gentle manual maneuver that takes the joint just past it’s normal physiological range of motion, and as a result, a light ‘popping’ sound is sometimes heard, as if you were cracking your knuckles. This sound is normal and is simply a sound made by gasses escaping from the joints as the joint capsule is stretched. With mobilizations, there will not be a sound heard but each joint is gradually stretched just beyond it normal range of motion.

Adjustments and mobilizations can help to restore the joints normal range of motion (or improve it further!). Whether it be joints of the low back, neck, pelvis, hands, elbow or feet, adjustments and mobilization helps to restore proper range of motion, decrease pain, and achieve proper function.Chiropractic adjustments are very safe, and through a thorough history and physical assessment, our Chiropractors will determine whether joint manipulation is an appropriate component of your therapy.
Additionally, our Chiropractors incorporate various methods of adjustments into their practice depending on your condition and comfort level. There are always options for patients to choose from if they are hesitant or unable to receive the diversified form of joint manipulation.

Myofascial (Muscle) Release Therapy

Depending on the source of your condition, when your body experiences pain, the muscles surrounding the area and other soft-tissues often respond with spasm, tightness, or trigger points (tender areas in muscle). Various soft-tissue treatment techniques, such as cross-friction massage, trigger-point therapy, and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) stretching can help alleviate the associated pain and soreness.

Gait Analysis / Foot Biomechanical Analysis:

The feet and ankles are the body’s base of support when standing, walking, or running. This makes them very susceptible to injury due to biomechanical dysfunction and/or simple wear-and-tear due to poor movement patterns. For that reason, it is essential to assess the feet when dealing with any injury to the body, as they may be a significant contributing factor to the pain. No two bodies are alike, and nobody is perfectly symmetrical from side to side.

They can be a large contributor in ankle, knee and hip alignment and cause imbalances in these areas if the feet aren’t moving properly. Assessing how you walk and how your feet, ankles, knees, hips and pelvis function in an active state is critical to evaluating any biomechanical factors in your injury and help to determine how to prevent that injury from re-occurring.

Active Care Program:

In addition to your individualized treatment plan, Dr. Peter will help walk you through the necessary steps to take at home or at work to further help the healing process and prevent further injury. This could be as simple as a few minutes of stretching a day, icing/heating the injury, making minor modifications to your work area, etc. Everyone has unique living and working situations; therefore, a customized treatment plan that takes these factors into consideration is important. The combination of an individualized treatment plan and a personalized rehabilitation program maximizes the therapeutic benefit and rate of recovery from your condition.
