Chiropractic manipulation is one of the primary treatments used by chiropractors to improve the overall health of their patients. Adjustments come in a variety of types. Some are quite vigorous, others are quite gentle, depending on the patient and the condition. It is about more than non-surgical pain relief, it is about allowing the body to operate at optimum efficiency. Whether your pain is chronic or acute, chiropractic manipulation can help to get you on the road to recovery.
Electrical muscle stimulation
Muscular pain can drag out seemingly indefinitely. Electric stimulation therapy uses low-voltage electricity to shock the muscles causing small contractions. This tires out the muscles which then relax. This helps to relieve the pain and speed up recovery.
Therapeutic ultrasound is different from the ultrasound that is used to take images. It uses sound waves at a high pitch to apply heat and vibration deep within the tissues. This not only stimulates endorphins to help with natural pain relief, it promotes healing at the cellular level.
Cryotherapy uses cold to treat pain and inflammation. When cold is applied to the skin, it slows down blood circulation while reducing swelling. When the cold is removed, the increase in circulation helps with pain relief and recovery. It can be very effective when it comes to athletic injuries as well as strains and sprains.
Moist heat therapy is used to reduce the pain in muscles, speed healing, and increase the range of motion. This is one treatment that both feels good and does good for your muscles.
Therapeutic laser therapy uses light to stimulate a chemical reaction in cells that speeds healing. This treatment complements other chiropractic treatments to get you back to the pain-free life you desire.
