Top 5 myths about chiropractors # 1 (2-5 to come)

#1. All chiropractors do is manipulate or adjust (“crack backs”)

     Chiropractors go through extensive training in learning different forms of manipulation. Furthermore, our education incorporates the physiology, biomechanics and reasoning behind spinal manipulative therapy. However, it is not all we do.

     Depending on your injury and the goals of the chiropractor in the treatment plan you may not even get manipulated. Certain conditions actually are contraindications to receiving manipulation such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis and extensive corticosteroid use.

     Surgeons often attempt to achieve the same goals with different forms of surgery all the time. This same analogy can be used for chiropractors. Depending on which chiropractor you see there may be different tools in their tool box. Just to name a few techniques which we practice:

Graston Technique           Active Release Therapy
Myofascial Release Therapy            Trigenics
Activator Technique           Thompson Technique
Logan Technique            Gonstead Technique
Mulligan Mobilizations            Kinesio Taping
Acupuncture           Proprioceptive Training
Rehabilitation Protocols            Orthotic prescription

Modalities such as : Shockwave Therapy, Russian Stim (EMS), Ultrasound, IFC, Microcurrent, Laser Therapy, TENS

    Case involving both acupuncture and kinesio taping

  5. Participating in sports keeps one healthy and fit, but it can also do damage to your body. Getting adjusted helps keep your spine aligned and your body functioning properly. I recommend chiropractic to anyone who participates in sport activities.

  6. Nice Info, Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy helps put movement in a joint that is fixated, the chiropractor utilizes chiropractic manipulation or an adjustment to help restore normal function and motion in a joint.
