Here at East Ridge Chiropractic, the most important thing we do is offer the most effective type of treatment to each individual patient. Sometimes patients are nervous about trying something new, such as a chiropractic adjustment. We do everything we can to make your experience here an enjoyable and pain free one. We offer several different techniques that are tailored to different ailments, as well as to what the patient prefers (if indicated). Of which include diversified (manual adjusting), flexion/distraction, traction, instrument assisted, and drop tables.
The biggest thing for you as the patient is first, getting the right evaluation and second, getting the right treatment. Some patients prefer manual adjusting and we’re glad to provide that. Some patients prefer a softer more gentler touch and we’re here to take care of that as well.
Soft Tissue Work
The chiropractic adjustment is an amazing way to both remove pain and restore function. Sometimes however, we need to evaluate and treat the tissues around the joints. So having a way to treat the muscles, ligaments, and tendons is also crucial to getting you better. We utilize ART or Active Release Technique and other instrument assisted soft tissue modalities to help you get back to work quicker.
Muscle testing is utilized to help further evaluate the neurological and orthopedic examination. Muscle testing however, can’t and shouldn’t be the end all in a evaluation of a condition. But, having a real time ability to see how the nervous system is functioning as a whole and to have another way to evaluate you is a valuable tool when used properly. Here we utilize the muscle test along with clinical history, nutritional evaluations for a detoxification needs, supplement requirements, and diet programing.
In massage therapy, a trained, certified medical professional (massage therapist) manipulates the soft tissues of your body — muscle, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and skin. The massage therapist uses varying degrees of pressure and movement.
Here at East Ridge Chiropractic, we believe that massage therapy can greatly help you in the following ways:
- Help reduce stress
- Lessen pain and muscle tension
- Increase relaxation
- Improve immune function
