Corrective Exercises

Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound

Ultrasound therapy is a chiropractic treatment used to help reduce muscle pain and increase range of motion. By using sound waves, we are able to stimulate deep inside the tissue. This minimizes stiffness, swelling, and pain while also promoting circulation, and pain-free movement.

X-Rays

X-Rays

One of the most important elements of chiropractic care is diagnostics. Chiropractic radiology is a tool utilized in care as a diagnostic practice to rule out pathology (such as possible tumor or fracture) and/or an additional aid to determine where to adjust the spine. Chiropractors rely on a variety of diagnostic techniques in order to fully understand what is occurring in the patient’s musculoskeletal system, and how a given treatment intervention could bring about positive results in each patient.

PNF Stretching

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, which is more commonly known as PNF, is a method of stretching that is designed to increase flexibility and range of motion. PNF stretching allows you to stretch further than in previous stretches by creating more length in a muscle to give you greater flexibility.

With PNF stretching you begin by stretching a muscle and then forcefully contracting that muscle before stretching it again. As you move into the next stretch after the contraction, you will be able to extend that muscle even further than before. Initially developed in the 1940s to treat certain neuromuscular conditions, PNF is now widely recognized by healthcare and fitness professionals as one of the most effective methods of stretching for increasing range of motion in Paradise, Rancho Oakey, or Spring Valley.

Thai Stretching

Stretches are an integral component of Thai massage. As practitioners move your body into yoga-like poses, they stretch the limbs and torso as well as mobilize joints.

Cupping

Cupping is a method of care that is intended to help alleviate muscle tension, improve blood circulation, and promote cell repair. It works by placing a warmed vessel or suction device on targeted areas of the skin. As the air inside the cup is cooled, negative pressure draws the skin and underlying muscle upward into the vessel.

While cupping offers relief of physical pain as it addresses deeper areas of scar tissue, muscle knots, and inflammation, it can also release emotional tension and alleviate symptoms of chronic physical ailments.

Cupping is a technique that’s derived from an ancient Chinese healing art. It’s believed that cupping helps to enable the flow of energy or life force in the body, which is known as the “qi,” while also helping to achieve a balance between the negative and positive yin and yang.

If you are looking for non-needle alternatives for acupuncture, please contact our team at MaxHealth Center in Paradise, Rancho Oakey, or Spring Valley today and we will be more than happy to help you understand your options.

Also known as EMS or e-stim, we use this therapeutic treatment to target select motor nerves with calibrated electric pulses to activate muscle contractions while engaging a high percentage of muscle fibers.

Manual Manipulation

Among a chiropractor’s many skills is the art of spinal manipulation to relieve pain and correct muscle imbalances. Back and neck pain are the leading reasons people miss work and visit their doctors. In many of these cases, muscle strains or sprains are causing the backache with tight muscles pulling on the vertebrae to move them out of place. This misalignment or subluxation of the vertebrae compresses the associated nerves to result in pain and stiffness. The goal of the chiropractor during spinal manipulation is to reposition the vertebrae to their original position and decompress the nerves thus stopping the pain. Spinal manipulation offers a conservative and non-surgical approach to care that both alleviates symptoms of discomfort and restores function.

SPINAL MANIPULATION THERAPY IS VERY EFFECTIVE

Spinal manipulation, which is also referred to as spinal manipulative therapy or manual therapy, harnesses the body’s innate healing power by gently repositioning and aligning those vertebrae that have shifted. It serves to relieve pain, restore function, and help maintain homeostasis. The procedure involves the directed manipulation of joints and can be complemented by massage therapy, exercise, and physical therapy to reduce inflammation, and alleviate nerve impairment for improved comfort and function. With spinal manipulation back, neck, shoulder, and headache pain can be treated. In some cases, other disorders such as menstrual pain and sinus problems can also be addressed.

ESSENTIAL COMPONENT OF CARE

As an essential component of care in both Western and traditional Asian medicine, forms of manipulative spine therapy have been used for thousands of years and in many parts of the world. In fact, evidence found in both ancient Chinese text from China in 2700 B.C. and Greek text circa 1500 B.C. mention manipulation of the spine and legs to ease back pain. In the United States, Dr. Daniel David Palmer, who is considered the “father” of chiropractic care, first developed the theory that diseases were caused by spinal misalignments, which blocked the transmission of the body’s own healing power through the nervous system, near the end of the nineteenth century. His ideas and findings form the basis of chiropractic medicine today.

ART®

Are you looking for Active Release Techniques in Paradise, Rancho Oakey, or Spring Valley? ART®, which stands for Active Release Techniques, is a system of care originally developed to treat soft tissues disorders in elite athletes and restore them to peak performance. Today, the technique is to treat a wide spectrum of problems such as headaches, back pain, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee issues, and shin splints as well as a multitude of other conditions.

ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUES

As a system of manual therapy, we use ART® to diagnose and treat soft tissue adhesions that are a result of the development of scar tissue. By determining where the adhesions are located and skillfully manipulating the involved body part as well as directing a patient’s movements in that area, any fibrous adhesions causing the pain and dysfunction are separated and broken up. These techniques restore motion between the muscles and fascia to facilitate proper function. ART® may be recommended for patients with acute, chronic, overuse, or repetitive stress injuries, or as part of a postoperative program of care.

Trigger Point Therapy

Are you looking for Trigger Point Therapy in Paradise, Rancho Oakey, or Spring Valley? Whether trigger points within muscles become activated by injury, overuse, inflammation, electrolyte imbalance or infection, once provoked they can cause a host of issues, including muscle weakness, restricted mobility or tenderness in the affected muscle as well as referred pain to other areas of the body.

UNDERSTANDING TRIGGER POINT THERAPY

As an effective hands-on technique, trigger point therapy is designed to alleviate constricted areas of muscle tightness that are causing discomfort and referred pain. During trigger point therapy, direct pressure is systematically and repeatedly applied to specific tender spots within a muscle and then released. While patients may be aware of certain trigger points themselves, with muscle palpation by a skilled trigger point therapist, others may become apparent. Although, one treatment can significantly reduce pain, to naturally manage the pain and stress of chronic injuries receiving trigger point therapy on a regular basis can be quite helpful.

This particular kind of therapy is designed to work on the nodule directly. There is specific, controlled pressure that is applied to the trigger point. After a few seconds of pressure, it is released. During this type of massage the patient participates and communicates by identified areas of discomfort as well as having controlled, deep breathing.

By relieving the trigger points in a muscle, it is allowing the muscle knot to loosen. Patients often experience immediate relief following one treatment. Regularly scheduled trigger point therapy can give you the benefits of pain management from stress, injury, etc.

If you are interested in learning more about Trigger Point Therapy, call our experienced team at MaxHealth Center in Paradise, Rancho Oakey, or Spring Valley today!
