Chiropractic: By mobilizing joints in the spine, neck, and even the hips, wrists and feet, a chiropractor can help correct biomechanical imbalances, alleviate pain, and restore normal body function. When one joint is locked and not functioning (in your spine for instance) then the other joints and muscles around that spot have to work twice as hard to get their job done. This combination of joints that aren’t moving and other joints that are moving too much creates irritation to the muscles, nerves, and connective tissue around the dysfunctional area. Mobilization of those joints that aren’t moving can thus correct the initial imbalance and allow the body to heal itself naturally. Though joint manipulation is an incredible tool, as Chiropractors we are not limited to just manipulation of joints. We use a variety of soft tissue techniques and physical modalities like electric muscle stimulation. We also use rehabilitation programs to treat our patients.
Chiropractors have been thoroughly instructed in the diagnosis and treatment of a multitude of health conditions ranging from the common to the severe. Patients should feel comfortable with the fact that, not only are the doctors of Proactive Healthcare skilled in treating a wide range of health conditions, but are also skilled in recognizing problems that may require the attention of other medical professionals.
Active Release Technique: ART is a soft-tissue therapy applied with the hands that treats problems with tendons, muscles, ligaments, fascia and nerves. The purpose of ART is to restore gliding between the tissues resulting in increase range of motion, circulation, strength and function.
