Highly-skilled and precise movements to the vertebrae of the spine applied by the hands, correcting joint motion to restore proper movement and improve function. (This motion can be accompanied by an audible pop. When a joint is adjusted, an air bubble may escape from the joint capsule causing the popping noise, similar to cracking your knuckles.)
Hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.
Precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique, in which fine solid needles (acupuncture needles) are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites, and stimulated manually or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system and/or the endocrine, exocrine and immune systems, in pain syndromes, functional problems, and any diseases in which these modulatory mechanisms are available.
Assessment of biomechanics and positioning of the foot, along with custom casting for a proper fit to help correct a number of common foot and lower limb problems to relieve pain and improve quality of life.
Electrodes are placed on the skin around the injured body part. IFC transmits electrical impulses in minute quantities through the skin to facilitate healing and pain reduction in underlying tissues.
Ultrasound is applied using the head of an ultrasound probe that is placed in direct contact with your skin via a transmission coupling gel. Ultrasound helps to increase local blood flow, help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation, and, according to some studies, promote bone fracture healing.
