Cox Flexion/Distraction

This technique is typically performed on a special table and is designed to realign the spine by applying pressure in key areas of the back. The chiropractor effectively decompresses the discs by applying a gentle stretch to the lower spine, and a series of repetitive movements and thrusts to reduce pressure. Flexion/Distraction may help relieve pain from disc hernia, failed back surgery syndromes, leg pain, sciatica, neck pain, arm pain, ruptured discs, herniated discs, slipped discs, low back pain, facet syndrome, bulging discs, spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, sprain/strain, disc prolapse, etc.

Graston Technique

Graston Technique

The unique protocol uses specially designed stainless steel instruments, along with appropriate therapeutic exercise, to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. The instruments also are used diagnostically to follow the kinetic chain, to locate and treat the cause of the symptom as well as the specific area of pain. GT is also frequently used as an effective protocol to maintain range of motion.

  • Decreases overall time of treatment
  • Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
  • Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
  • Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
  • Provides an efficient way to maintain optimal range of motion

Fat-Tool

  • Fascial Mobilization using the FAT-Tool specifically targets and loosens
    the fascia that surrounds and interconnects muscle tissue, that when tight,
    can restrict range of motion and impair quality of movement.
  • Zero Bruising. The Fascial Abrasion Technique Tool is much different than the many assisted soft tissue mobilization tools on the market. Unlike tools such as Graston, ASTYM, IASTYM, SASTM, and the Fibroblaster that have a smooth surface, the FAT-Tool has a patented textured surface that allows for maximal tissue tension release without excessive pressure and without bruising. It is very effective for treating stubborn injuries such as plantar fascitis, achilles and patellar tendonosis, muscular sprains and ligament strains, lateral epicondylitis and adhesions from scars and old injuries.

Low Back and Neck Traction

Traction helps to relieve pain by stretching the spine’s muscles and increasing spaces in the joints to relieve pressure. When patients have severe pain, their muscles can spasm, causing even more pain. Traction therapy helps these muscles to relax.

Manipulation Under Anesthesia

Maniplutaion Under Anesthesia

What is MUA?
Manipulation Under Anesthesia, otherwise known as MUA, is a non-invasive procedure increasingly offered for acute and chronic conditions, including: neck pain, back pain, joint pain, muscle spasm, shortened muscles, fibrous adhesions and long term pain syndromes in post motor vehicle accident patients.
By lightly anesthetizing a patient, once painful adjustments and movements are accomplished quickly and pain free helping to greatly improve or even restore range of motion.

Manipulation Under Anesthesia is a viable alternative for those patients that are not responding to traditional conservative care of other invasive procedures such as surgery.

Who would be a Candidate for Manipulation Under Anesthesia?
In general, patients selected for Manipulation Under Anesthesia are those with certain neck, mid-back, low-back or other spinal conditions that have received conservative care for six to eight weeks with limited or no improvement in symptoms or findings.

MUA may also be appropriate for those patients that still experience pain after undergoing various invasive treatments such as surgery.

Common indications for Manipulation Under Anesthesia include neck, middle and lower back pain, chronic muscle pain and inflammation, acute and chronic muscle pain and inflammation, acute and chronic muscle spasm, chronic fibrosis’s, nerve entrapment, disk pathology including herniated disks, torticollis and failed back surgery.

Not all patients qualify for MUA as certain contraindications prevent some from undergoing the procedure. Consult your Chiropractor to determine if you are an MUA candidate.

What is Manipulation Under Anesthesia Procedure like? Maniplutaion Under Anesthesia
The Manipulation Under Anesthesia procedure involves three consecutive days of treatment. During these three days a patient is treated with spinal manipulative therapy and MUA stretches.

Since the patient is lightly sedated during the MUA procedure, the usual resistance and pain associated with manipulation is eliminated. Through the use of “conscious sedation,” a patient is conscious and responsive, but relaxed, allowing the physician to administer adjustments similar to those received during regular chiropractic visits but more effectively.

After the procedure, treatment continues as strengthening and stabilization programs are initiated over the next few weeks. Post-Procedure care is a vital part of the MUA procedure. Follow-up visits with a Chiropractor are important at this time as the stretches accomplished during the MUA procedure are built upon, helping the patient to regain strength and prevent future pain and discomfort.

My Doctor Says I am a Candidate for MUA…
Patients who have been selected for Manipulation Under Anesthesia Procedure by their doctor typically undergo a medical screening process to determine true MUA candidacy.

This screening process includes a medical history and physical examination and where indicated, CBC blood studies, chest X-Rays, EKG’s and other diagnostic tests such as MRI or CT’s.

Once a patient is cleared and medical necessity for MUA is determined, an Outpatient Surgery Center representative will pre-certify and schedule the procedure dates and times. The Outpatient Surgery Center will also handle the explanation of all pre and post-operative instructions, answer any questions the patient may have about the procedure and arrange transportation for the patient if necessary.

Nutritional Supplements by Standard Process

As a nation, we eat poor-quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients. The foods we eat are not providing our bodies with the nutrition it needs to survive and be healthy. We suffer from diabetes, heart attacks, obesity, and the list goes on and on.
Given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability to heal itself. If properly fed and given the right nutrients, the human body is designed to repair itself. To do so, we need to eat a healthier diet, exercise, and take high-quality supplements made from whole foods. Whole food supplements supply our bodies with nutrients we are not getting from our diet, all the vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and phytonutrients that foods possess in a way that nature intended, in a whole food form.

Rapid Release Technology (RRT) Targets Scar Tissue Adhesions

Rapid Release Technology

Are you suffering from scar tissue adhesions?

Scar tissue forms in the body as a temporary patching mechanism for wounds caused by surgery, trauma or repetitive stress. Scar tissues that connect tissues that are not normally connected are called adhesions. Adhesions can spread entrapping nerves, causing pain or numbness, and limiting range of motion. Undiagnosed pain and restricted mobility are likely to be caused by scar tissue adhesions.

What can be done to treat scar tissue adhesions?

Scar tissue therapy is focused on relief of soft tissue problems caused by adhesions. Examples of adhesion problems include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonosis, muscle spasms, trapped nerves, range of motion contractures, neuromas, headaches, Temporomandibular (TMJ) disorders, knee problems, tennis elbow, as well as back, shoulder and ankle pain. The Rapid Release Technology (RRT) therapy device targets brittle scar tissue with the shearing force of planar wave energy that passes safely through soft tissue and is readily absorbed by scar tissue. RRT uses the optimum frequency that resonates with scar tissue for maximum effectiveness. With only a 2mm stroke, this therapy feels good and is completely safe.

STIM

Electrical stimulation uses an electrical current to cause a single muscle or a group of muscles to contract. By placing electrodes on the skin in various locations one can recruit the appropriate muscle fibers. Contracting the muscle via electrical stimulation helps strengthen the affected muscle. Along with increasing muscle strength, the contraction of the muscle also promotes blood supply to the area that assists in healing.
