Manipulation of the spine and extremities (joints other than those in the spinal column) can be done using manual thrusts. We leverage the hardwired neurological pathways that are activated during the adjustment to influence the central nervous system. The therapeutic focus of this modality is restoring neurological and bio-mechanical function.
The Impulse IQ Adjusting Instrument is a computerized, live-feedback device utilized to provide reproducible, comfortable low-force adjustments to the spine or extremities, similar to manual adjustments. Some patients require adjustments be modified for various reasons and this device allows us to communicate with their central nervous system with a “whisper” instead of a “shout”.
Hypervolt Vibrational Therapy
Hypervolt is a vibratory therapy that relaxes muscles and breaks up scar tissue. The percussion improves range of motion, decreases pain and increases circulation to remove waste products.
Myofascial Release is a form of soft tissue therapy which can be manual or instrument-assisted for stretching and releasing adhesions between fascia, ligaments, tendons, skin, muscles, and bones. This technique helps connective tissue fibers to reorganize themselves into a more functional pattern.
Low Level Laser
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) reduces inflammation, improves recovery time and inhibits pain. LLLT reduces inflammation and improves oxygenation/blood flow which allows us to apply this therapy to achieve significant improvements in brain function. Laser therapy can also be used for chronic musculoskeletal pain, such as neck and back pain, as well as inflammatory conditions like plantar fasciitis. Light therapy is a non-invasive therapy that has been used for decades in sports rehabilitation to facilitate athletic performance and tissue healing.
Neuromuscular Therapy & Exercise
We develop an individualized strength and conditioning exercise regimen for patients to eliminate pain and stabilize their spine. We develop programs for neck and back pain as well as extremity pain. Many patients suffer from chronic shoulder or knee pain due to an imbalance of muscle activity or brain-based impairment. Our programs help to retrain proper movement through gait and ultimately restore functionality.
Founded on research that identifies neck strength as a way to reduce concussion risk… “For every 1 lb. increase in neck strength, odds of concussion decrease by 5%”… Iron Neck training is the most effective way to reduce the effects of whiplash forces to the head. Male neck strength is twice that of female athletes! Smaller mean neck circumference, smaller mean neck to head circumference ratio, and weaker mean overall neck strength were significantly associated with concussion. (Collins et al 2014)
