The chiropractic services performed at Pain Relief Chiropractic include chiropractic adjusting or “manipulation,” functional rehabilitation, soft-tissue and muscle techniques, post-isometric relaxation or PIR of the muscles and joints (facilitated stretching), functional screening, gait analysis, TMJ evaluation and treatment, nutritional counseling, nutritional supplementation, and advice.
We specialize in back and neck pain relief now. We treat the patient and release the patient. We do not do any long lengthy treatment plans here.
Our List of Chiropractic Services:
This is the main chiropractic service most chiropractors provide. At PRC we perform chiropractic adjustments when we find a joint that has been “locked up” or “restricted” due to some sort of injury mechanism. Some benefits felt from an adjustment include increased range of motion, decrease in joint pain, decrease in arthritis pain, and an overall feeling of well-being.
This service is very important to a patient’s speedy recovery. Most injuries come down to lack of function. Functional rehabilitation is finding a patient’s biomechanical faults or where they lack proper function and correcting it through exercise rehabilitation and stability training.
An injured muscle can become very debilitating if not treated, which can lead to a decrease in function. Soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons) can generate scar tissue and become adhered to other structures in the body. Active Release Technique provided can break up scar tissue and adhesions along the muscle restoring it to proper function.
Relaxation of the muscles:
Everyday activities and posture can cause some muscles to become tight and short or tight and lengthened. Both can have a detrimental effect on your joints. Many leading researchers in the medical field believe degenerative arthritis can be caused by these abnormal muscle pulls. We use post-isometric relaxation to relax these tight muscles and restore them back to normal length.
This describes how we find a patient’s functional inabilities to perform certain activities. Examples include a squat test, gait (walking, running), ability to take a step down 6 inches and more. These tests can tell us where a patient is weak and we can develop a personalized functional rehabilitation program tailored to their needs.
Gait can give us a lot of information. Gait refers to a patient’s natural method of walking or running.
TMJ Evaluation and Treatment:
TMD disorders can stem from a variety of other issues. Anything in the head or neck can associate with the TMJ. The TM is a joint that can become faulty or painful due to certain muscle issues in the head and face. This can be treated with muscle techniques provided here in our office. The doctors at Pain Relief Chiropractic have post-graduate training in head, neck, and TMJ rehabilitation. We can also work with your dentist to get the best possible outcome.
