A chiropractic adjustment (also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation) is a common therapeutic treatment for lower back pain. A chiropractic adjustment refers to a chiropractor applying manipulation to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. The objective of this chiropractic treatment is to reduce subluxation, with the goals of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability, and improving function.
A woman’s body undergoes many changes, some traumatic, during pregnancy and the birthing process. Many are left with unresolved issues associated with childbirth, leading to major issues down the line. Postpartum rehabilitation focuses on the core and pelvic floor to help you get back or improve your physical abilities and daily functioning.
The Activator is a small handheld adjusting instrument that was designed to deliver a fast and more specific dynamic thrust. It uses a gun-type mechanism that delivers an accurate percussive thrust upon triggering. The activator instrument controls the force and speed of the adjustment exceptionally well, and the line of drive can be more specific. There are different tension settings for adjusting various areas of the body, from very soft for adjusting the neck to a bit more powerful for the strong bones in the lower back and hips. The instrument can be used on patients of all ages, but it works especially well with the elderly, pregnant patients, and infants and children. It also works well for adjusting small bones in the extremities, like wrists and feet.
The Webster technique is specifically designed for the care of pregnant women. It has been proven safe and is gentle. The Webster technique is based upon removing tension and torsion from within the pelvis, including its bony structures, ligaments, and muscles, thereby reducing strain on the fetus and providing the expecting mother relief from low back and pelvic pain during pregnancy.
Although the Webster technique does not claim to treat breech births, it has been shown to be approximately 85% successful in helping to prevent breech birth presentations by reducing intrauterine constraints. This is accomplished by correcting sacral misalignment and promoting proper biomechanics within the pelvis. When this is accomplished, the ligaments, muscles, and bony structures are allowed to function without undue tension, thereby allowing for proper fetal movement. It has also been helpful in reducing other complications during labor and delivery and helping to make that process go more smoothly and naturally.

A modality is a type of electrical, thermal, or mechanical energy that causes physiological changes. It is used to relieve pain, improve circulation, decrease swelling, reduce muscle spasms, and deliver medication in conjunction with the chiropractic adjustment. Typical types of modalities include electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, heat, ice, and traction.
Kinesio Tape alleviates discomfort and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting effect forms convolutions in the skin, thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation, reducing pressure while enabling a more effective flow of blood and lymphatic fluid in and out of the target area. Based upon years of clinical use, Kinesio Tape is specifically applied to the patient based upon their needs after evaluation. The findings of the clinical evaluation or assessment dictate the specifics of the Kinesio Tape application and other possible treatments or modalities. Kinesio Tape can be applied in hundreds of ways and has the ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce inflammation, prevent injury, promote good circulation and healing, and assist in returning the body to homeostasis.

Cupping therapy is a Traditional Chinese Medicine therapy that involves using special cups to apply suction over the skin of an affected area. The cups are left in place or moved around the skin to improve blood circulation in the area, rid the body of toxins, improve general well-being, and help with many different ailments, including pain and inflammation.
Dry needling, also known as intramuscular stimulation, is the use of solid filiform or “non-injection” needles to stimulate specific reactions in an area of muscle tissue and the surrounding fascia or membrane in order to alleviate pain and/or soft tissue dysfunction.
Red Light Therapy (R.L.T.) is a non-invasive treatment that reduces many types of pain and helps heal injuries faster through deep tissue penetration. It is effective for the relief of minor muscle and joint pain, arthritis, and muscle spasms, relieving stiffness, promoting relaxation of muscle tissue, and temporarily increasing local blood circulation where heat is applied.
