We offer Chiropractic care along with numerous therapies to get you back to better health
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is “a health-care profession that focuses on the spine and other joints of the body, and their connection to the nervous system,” according to Palmer College of Chiropractic. Doctors of chiropractic are primary care doctors who specialize in spinal health and well being.
We focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and care of the spine and other joints. Chiropractors also provide soft tissue therapies and lifestyle recommendations, as well as fitness and nutritional coaching.
CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT BLUE MOUNTAIN WELLNESS
Our approach to Chiropractic begins with a comprehensive exam to look at the structure and the function of the spine. If joints are not moving properly or there are structural issue with the spine, we have several ways to correct that through non-invasive chiropractic using things like manual adjustments, e-stimulation, intersegmental traction, spinal decompression, laser therapy, flexion distraction, thompson drops, activator methods, and more!
Our Chiropractic Techniques
The most common chiropractic care is manual adjustments. The art of chiropractic lies in the adjusting. At Fredericksburg Chiropractic we believe in hands on manual manipulation for the majority of our treatment plans. Chiropractic literally means “done by hand” in Latin. Keeping this in mind, we believe it is best to use manual adjusting techniques for our patients. Our patients have excellent results from our hands on adjustments.
In addition to manual adjusting, we also offer e-stimulation, commonly referred to as e-stim. E-stim is administered to patients when they have very spastic muscles. The electrical impulses cause the muscles to repeatedly fire. These repeated muscular contractions in turn fatigue the muscles. When the muscles fatigue, it allows them to relax from their previous state of contraction which often takes pressure off the nerves that are causing the felt pain. The electrical stimulation is typically administered for 10 minutes prior to chiropractic treatments. The relaxed muscles will help the manual manipulation adjustment go smoother.
Following a chiropractic adjustment, we may administer intersegmental traction. After the chiropractic adjustment the patient lays on an intersegmental traction table which rolls up and down the axial spine. The rolling action helps induce motion back into the spinal joints as the machine rises on its Y axis while tractioning the spine on its X axis. Patients often describe the intersegmental traction table as a massage table.
Spinal decompression utilizes a gentle traction to stretch the spine, joints, and a wide range of important muscles including the back, hips, and thighs. Patients are gently leaned back into a supine position and the machine does all the work. Many fall asleep while being treated as the gentle vibration helps to further relax the muscles.
High Intensity Laser Therapy (HILT) is an amazing tool for many of our chronic patients. For those suffering with inflammation, our class IV laser will accelerate healing time by boosting the production of ATP which is the energy source of a cell, released by the mitochondria. Many patients feel instant relief with the soothing heat generated as a by product of a laser treatment.
