Chiropractic focuses on treating musculoskeletal conditions with adjustments in conjunction with physical rehabilitation and soft tissue work. Adjustments are used to correct joint dysfunction in order to increase mobility and decrease pain.
Myofascial release technique and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) are both forms of soft tissue therapy. Soft tissues include the muscles, fascia, ligaments and tendons of your body. Damage to these tissues results in scar tissue formation, which reduces range of motion and causes pain. Through the use of these techniques, scar tissue is broken down, therefore increasing the tissue's flexibility and ability to function.
Work injuries can range from a fall, a herniated disc from carrying heavy objects, or even from cumulative trauma injuries that cause neck pain or headaches. Regardless of what the cause may be, chiropractors are experts at properly diagnosing, managing, and treating occupational injuries.
PHYSICAL REHAB/ CORRECTIVE EXERCISE
Corrective exercise is the use of movement to produce desirable changes in movement strategies, thereby minimizing or eliminating compensation and producing efficient movement patterns.Through the use of corrective exercise, we improve range of motion, muscular strength, and neuromuscular control to treat the underlying causes of your pain.
Majority of car accidents can result in whiplash, soft tissue injuries, and neck and back sprain/strains. Chiropractic care decreases the chance of suffering long term soft tissue damage and can improve joint mobility.
Ergonomic evaluations and assessments help limit the risk of injury to workers. The term ergonomics applies to the relationship between workers and their environment. It involves arranging things in the environment so workers can use them safely and efficiently.
