Manipulation (Neck & Back Pain)
Chiropractors’ primary treatment method is manipulation of the skeleton. The spine is the most commonly manipulated region of the skeleton. Chiropractors apply a specific vector and amplitude force to joints that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. The objective of this treatment is improving range of motion, reducing nerve interference and improving function. Chiropractors are now able to utilize specific instruments and tables to accommodate patients who may require a more gentle manipulation.

Functional Dry Needling is a minimally invasive procedure used primarily to decrease pain and increase range of motion. Needles are inserted into areas of tissue dysfunction and trigger points that are located during examination. Some of the conditions that Dry Needling can be used to treat include headaches, neck and back pain, sciatica, muscle strains, ligament sprains, repetitive strain injuries, sports injuries, tennis elbow, tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, shoulder, hip and knee pain.

Chiropractic Care and Primary Care

Chiropractic care collaborations with primary care providers give patients a unique assessment; one that takes into account the patients’ physical form and deviations from their individual norm.

Primary care encompasses a wide array of health services and does a fantastic job at prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Primary care often takes a mix of patient history, lab tests, and clinical reasoning to determine a medical intervention to bring back health and/or to eliminate symptoms. Chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between the body’s structure and its function. Chiropractic care is a philosophy, science and art; a system of adjusting the spine without the use of surgical means to correct areas with reduced coordination.
