A spinal adjustment, otherwise referred to as spinal manipulation, is used to restore joint mobility, and chiropractors do this by applying a controlled force on joints that have become restricted as a result of tissue injury. Soft tissue injuries can occur from lifting a heavy object improperly, or through repetitive stress, such as sitting with poor posture for extended periods of time.
This therapy is used to introduce passive motion into the spine for the purpose of flexing spinal joints, increasing mobility, and preventing disc degeneration. Patients enjoy the relaxing motion and increased mobility gained from Intersegmental Traction.
Electrical muscle stimulation, otherwise known as Interferential Electro-Therapy, is a proven therapeutic treatment for the relief of pain and the promotion of soft tissue healing. Ligament sprains, muscle strains and spasms often respond to this treatment, helping to reduce atrophy and increase blood circulation.
