The chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is very effective, noninvasive approach to restoring motion into joints that are restricted or not moving properly. If one joint loses movement, the body compensates by moving too much in other joints or areas of the body. This may lead to degenerative changes and pain in the compensating joints.
Active Release Techniques (A.R.T.) is a hands-on procedure that allows the chiropractor to diagnose and treat soft tissue injuries related to muscle, tendon, fascia, and nerves. Specific injuries include: repetitive strains, adhesions, tissue hypoxia, and joint dysfunction. When muscles, joints, or ligaments are injured, our body lays down scar tissue as a repair patch.
Here at Essential Motion Spine & Sport, we are proud to help people who are dealing with recent or even lingering sports injuries.
Sports can be very taxing on your body, no matter what you play. Our trusted staff will work with you to get to the root of your problem and help you feel better again.
The Graston Technique uses instruments to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. The instrument is used in a way to comb over and “catch” on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies areas of restriction.
Research shows that it is becoming increasingly clear that chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses – including arthritis, chronic pain, heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer’s disease. Diet- induced chronic inflammation leads to systemic inflammation. Systemic inflammation is a contributing factor to a great variety of painful conditions and illnesses.
These are just some of the services that we provide here at Essential Motion Spine & Sport. We love providing our patients with an enjoyable and pain-free life, so don’t hesitate to stop on by!
