Advanced Chiropractic Center provides patients with the most current and effective conservative health care available. Some of the treatment options include:
- Chiropractic Adjustments
- Custom Rehab Programs
- Physiotherapy Modalities
- Soft Tissue Therapy
- Muscle Lengthening Techniques
- Traction (roller table)
- Steam Heat and Ice
Chiropractic Manipulation is used to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs and headaches. The purpose is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force to joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury.
Custom Rehab Programs
Treatment designed to get people out of pain for good. We are not just roller tables and hot packs. We can design a custom rehab program to correct faulty movement patterns and increase stability. A strong, flexible, properly functioning body is the best way to prevent re-injury.
Physiotherapy (also called “E-Stim”) is used for relaxation of muscle spasms, prevention of disuse atrophy (muscle wasting), increase of local blood circulation, muscle rehabilitation and re-education, maintaining and increasing range of motion, management of chronic pain, and post-traumatic acute pain and wound healing.
Therapeutic Muscle lengthening Techniques
These are a sub-set of specific muscle lengthening (or muscle stretching) techniques, designed to relax the short and overly contracted bands of muscle usually present after an injury that involved trauma, repetitive use or sustained load due to poor posture. This includes Post Isometric Relaxation (PIR), Contract Relax Antagonist Contract (CRAC), and Pin-and-Stretch.
Trigger Point Therapy
This is a type of soft tissue therapy that uses direct pressure to affect trigger points. Trigger points are tight and tender nodules found in muscle that cause local pain, and refer pain to other areas of the body. By reducing or eliminating the trigger point, both the local and referred pain can be reduced and even eliminated.
Steam Heat and Cryotherapy
Steam Heat is used to relax stiff, hypertonic muscles, and improve range of motion. Cryotherapy is used to reduce pain and swelling.
