Dr. Fisher and Dr. Cooley are experts in many different chiropractic techniques. At, Creekside Chiropractic Center, Drs. Cooley and Fisher will determine which techniques will work best to treat your particular problem.
Diversified technique is the use of fast, gentle thrusts to the spine or other joints to normalize proper movement. With this adjustment you may hear small pops and clicks.
This is an adjustment that uses a specialized table to put motion through the joint to normalize motion and stimulate the nervous system without bending or twisting the patient.
Many patients benefit from adjustments to the arms or legs to improve motion of the extremities. Often times, the spinal pain is linked to abnormal motion in the joints of the arms or legs.
Dr. Cooley has achieved Advanced Proficiency Rated in Activator Methods. Activator Methods uses a specialized adjusting tool called an Activator to specifically adjust painful and poorly functioning joints. This is a gentle, subtle treatment to joints.
Pain and injuries always include muscles that are either in spasm or are tightened. Active stretching will help your problem respond more quickly.
Dr. Fisher is also proficient in kinesiology taping, as well as, soft tissue release, and both Thompson and Pierce Drop techniques.
Kinesiology Tape is a specialized tape that is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused or tired muscles and to support movement. It is often seen on athletes, but patients can also benefit from this treatment.
Soft Tissue Release (STR)
STR, unlike relaxation massage, is most commonly used to treat conditions related to adhesions or scar tissue in overused muscles. As adhesions build up, muscles become shorter and weaker, the motion of muscles and joints are altered, and nerves can be compressed. As a result, tissues suffer from decreased blood supply, pain, and poor mobility.
In addition to these chiropractic techniques, we may also use therapies such as electrical muscle stimulation, intersegmental traction and ice therapy to help you feel better.
