Adjusting techniques reduce spinal and extremity joint fixations, establish normal movement patterns, promote proper biomechanics, and reduce pain. We offer light and medium force techniques such as: Diversified, Thompson Drop, Gonstead, Motion Palpation, Chiropractic Biophysics, Arthrostim Instrument, and Myofascial Release. Our passion is wellness care.
Diversified Technique is a manual therapy approach used by Chiropractors to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, including musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. It is based on the principles of spinal manipulation, which involves applying a controlled force to specific joints of the body. The goal of the Diversified Technique is to restore normal movement and function to the affected joints and muscles, thereby reducing pain and improving overall health and well-being.
The technique is called “Diversified” because it involves a variety of methods to address the specific needs of each patient, including manual adjustments, manual traction, and soft tissue mobilization. The technique is tailored to each patient based on their individual examination findings and specific conditions. The Chiropractor may use their hands or various instruments to perform the adjustments, depending on the patient’s needs and preferences.
Overall, the Diversified Technique is a widely used and respected manual therapy approach in Chiropractic care and is considered to be a safe and effective method for managing a variety of conditions
Auto Injury Rehabilitation
Auto Crashes are responsible for numerous injuries, acute and chronic. Dr. Smith and Dr Gates are focused on your recovery and providing the best care possible. Specific programs are designed on an individual basis, geared toward the repair of injured ligaments, discs, joint capsules, and myofascial structures. Emphasis is placed on tissue healing, regaining lost function and pain reduction.
Sports Injury & Physical Rehabilitation
Physical therapy techniques are employed to recover lost function, improve muscle activation, heal injured tissues, correct dysfunctional movement patterns, and promote core stability. Whether you require post-surgical rehab, injury rehab, or functional rehab due to deconditioning, we provide it with customized exercise plan for each patient.
This is a specialized form of rehab. The structure of the spine is addressed in which the goal of treatment is to reduce abnormal loading of the spine from a gravitational perspective. Mechanical engineering and mathematical principles are utilized and applied to the spine to approximate a more appropriate configuration toward the normal spinal curves.
P-Wave Acoustic Compression Therapy
P-Wave Acoustic Compression Therapy is a type of physical therapy that uses low-frequency, high-energy sound waves to treat various conditions and injuries. It works by delivering pressure waves to the affected area, which can help increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and stimulate the healing process. This therapy is commonly used to treat conditions such as musculoskeletal pain, soft tissue injuries, plantar fasciitis, and chronic tendonitis. The therapy is non-invasive and is performed using a hand-held device that delivers the sound waves directly to the affected area.
Non-Surgical Decompression Therapy
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive treatment for lower back pain, neck pain, and other conditions related to spinal compression. The therapy involves stretching the spine using a computer-controlled traction table to relieve pressure on the discs and nerves. The goal of spinal decompression therapy is to provide pain relief, improve mobility, and promote the natural healing process of the spine. It is typically used as a conservative alternative to surgery and is recommended for people with conditions such as herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and spinal stenosis. This treatment option is very safe and utilizes FDA cleared equipment to apply distraction forces to spinal structures in a precise and graduated manner.
Whole and organic foods are always the best way to provide your body what it needs to function properly, but many times nutritional supplementation is needed. In times of physiological stress, toxicity and injury, supplements are helpful for biochemical repair and function. We only use whole food and pharmaceutical grade products from trusted names such as Anabolic Labs, Dynatronics, and Biogenics.
