Common Techniques

Our trained and skilled chiropractor uses a variety of methods to help treat and rehab injuries. This method used will vary depending on the injury location, severity, and pain level. Listed below are some of the common rehab chiropractic techniques we use:

  • Mckenzie Approach
    The Mckenzie approach includes various exercises that stretch the back, legs, and buttocks. A specific exercise used in this method includes laying on the back and pulling the knee, one at a time, toward the chest.
  • Dynamic Lumbar Stabilization
    This treatment involves exercises that begin in a lying position, to standing, to jumping. These movements are designed to move from a resting position to an active position.
  • Myofascial Release Therapy
    Movements that loosen muscle tightness and stiffness. Such therapy may include using a foam roller to massage muscles. Performing these types of exercises increases a patient’s range of motion.
  • Graston Technique
    The Graston technique is a type of therapy that is performed by specialized tools that lightly scrape and massage the skin. This helps break down scar tissue and decreases muscle restriction.
  • Kinesio Taping Method
    This practice involves the taping of muscles to provide support and restriction. This kind of manipulation is helpful for muscles to heal. It is often applied after an adjustment.
  • Cupping
    Suction cups are used to stretch and release muscle tension that is too deep to massage from the surface. This technique also promotes an increase in blood flow.

About the Treatment

Prior to therapy, our team may provide patients with videos and reading material of the various routines that will be performed during their session. Therapy often includes a combination of stretching exercises and aerobic activities. Physical routines may include workouts that move from low to high intensity, such as walking, running or using an elliptical machine. Tools such as stretch bands and exercise balls are also commonly used during therapy. It may seem contradictory to perform physical activities and exercises while you are injured, but it’s all designed to release stiffness and relieve pain. Such activities are done in a controlled environment for short periods of time. It’s all part of the healing process.

What to Expect

The chiropractor will meet with patients to discuss their reason for rehab and set up a treatment plan that’s specific to their condition. Patients who are visiting a chiropractor for rehabilitation therapy are typically placed on a treatment plan for a specific period of time. For example, an athlete, who is receiving care due to a knee injury, may visit the chiropractor several times a week for 6 weeks. The care and timeframe is all dependent on the patient and the injury.
