Treatment methods

Treatment Techniques and Methods used in the Clinic

The initial consultation includes a full orthopedic, neurologic and functional assessment of the reason for your visit. Images such as x-ray, CT or MRI will also be reviewed. Your condition is diagnosed and a treatment plan specific for you and your condition is provided.
 

Treatments may include:

  • Spinal and peripheral joint mobilization or manipulation

    • Diversified Technique

A collection of different forms of manipulation characterized by a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust to restore proper movement of spine and peripheral joint dysfunction. It is often accompanied by a ‘click’ or ‘crack’ sound indicating a change in pressure in the joint and surrounding soft-tissue fluids.

    • Cox / Flexion-Distraction

This technique is a doctor-controlled, hands-on form of manipulation performed with the patient lying on a specific treatment table specially designed for this procedure. This table, with its variety of movements, permits the effective administration of flexion-distraction and decompression of the spine and its joints. Flexion-distraction and decompression helps relieve spinal pain and return patients to their desired quality of life by:

  1. Reducing pressure within the intervertebral discs

  2. Reducing pressure on the spinal nerves 

  3. Returning motion to the spinal joints 

This technique is appropriate for conditions that cause low back and leg pain such as: Disc bulges or Disc herniations, Spinal stenosis, Spondylolisthesis and facet joint degeneration.

 

  • Myofascial Dry Needling / Intramuscular stimulation

Trigger points are described as hyperirritable spots in muscle that are associated with palpable nodules or taut bands of muscle fibers. The trigger point model states that pain frequently radiates from these points of local tenderness to broader areas, sometimes distant from the trigger point itself. Referred pain patterns have been identified from trigger points.

Activation of trigger points may be caused by a number of factors, including acute or chronic muscle overload, activation by other trigger points, direct trauma to the region such as a car accident, radiculopathy, psychological distress, infections and other health issues or disease.

Myofascial dry needling or intramuscular stimulation by needle is one form of therapy that treats trigger points successfully. For those people who may be weary of needles, trigger point therapy by pressure (also known as ischemic compression) has also been found to be very effective.

 

  • Soft-tissue release Techniques

    • IASTM: Instrument assisted soft-tissue mobilization / Graston Technique®

    • Cupping Therapy

    • Flossing or Blood flow restriction (Rockfloss)

    • Kinesiology Taping (Rocktape)

Kinesiology Tape (Rocktape) has been proven to have positive physiological effects on the skin, lymphatic and circulatory systems, fascia, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints. It is used in conjunction with a multitude of other treatments and modalities to reduce pain, promote improved circulation and healing, help to re-educate the neuromuscular system and enhance performance and help prevent injury.
