I'll use my hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments. If scar tissue is present, I'll be able to feel it because it will be preventing soft tissues from moving properly. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength and even pain. If nerve tissue is trapped, there may be tingling, numbness and weakness as well.
When problems are detected, I choose from over 500 specific protocols. I'll apply precise amounts of pressure while you move or bend in specific ways that aid in the correction of your condition. These manual maneuvers are normally applied at the site of your injury. Excellent results have been reported with the neuromuscular system.
We may use an additional therapy or a combination of therapies to aid you in your journey to relief from pain. Some of the therapies that we perform in our office are ice/heat therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, mechanical traction table therapy, "massage" table therapy, stretching, exercising, and rehab.
