Services Offered at our Providence Chiropractic Office
Chiropractic Manipulation - Also known as a chiropractic adjustment, it serves to promote proper joint function and movement. This is done by manually applying a controlled force to specific joints, most commonly of the spine, that are hypomobile, or not moving properly. Mobility is restored, consequently relieving pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.
Physiotherapy - Physiotherapy serves to increase blood flow, facilitate healing and reduce inflammation. These therapies include electric stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound and heat/ice therapy.
Muscular Rehabilitation - Our first goal is always to decrease pain through treating the cause of disease or dysfunction. Our second goal is to make sure patients stay out of pain, or to decrease episodes of dysfunction. This is where muscular rehabilitation comes into play. In addition to proper joint mobility, proper muscular function is essential. Therefore most patients will learn several exercises and stretches to both do in the office and at home, as well as a plan to maintain musculoskeletal stability.
Soft Tissue Technique - We use a variety of soft tissue therapy techniques, to help get blood flowing, loosen up muscle tissue, and flush out chemicals that promote inflammation.
