Chiropractic Joint Manipulation and Mobilization Therapy

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) defines Chiropractic as a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. It is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. the main technique employed by chiropractors is joint manipulation, otherwise known as the "Chiropractic adjustment".

The purpose of manipulation is to restore join mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become restricted as a result of tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, or sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In any case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected join and tissues, restores mobility thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal properly.

Sound Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilization (S.A.S.T.M.®)

S.A.S.T.M.® is an effective technique that uses instruments to effectively break down fascial restrictions and scar tissue. The ergonomic design of these instruments provides the clinician with the ability to locate restrictions through sound waves, like a stethoscope, and allows the clinician to treat the affected area with the appropriate amount of pressure, due to square surface concept. S.A.S.T.M.® is effective in treating a variety of soft-tissue based injuries such as sprains, strains, tendonitis, post-surgical scar tissue and more. Reduction and removal of soft-tisue adhesions are vital in restoring functional movements back to your joints.

Physical Rehabilitation and Exercise Prescription

Physical rehabilitation is a vital part to any Chiropractic treatment plan. Without proper exercises and stabilization, a patient may not experience the full benefit of a chiropractic adjustment. Site specific exercises and stretches help restore strength, range of motion, and activity level following either injury or surgery. A home exercise program will be prescribed to aid in your recovery and reduce the risk of re-injury. Collectively, the plan of care will help to not only control pain and expedite healing but also allow you to return to your normal activity level pain-free

Managing injuries often involves some aspect of physiotherapy in order to properly control the amount of inflammation associated with an injury. The following forms of physiotherapy are used as part of your treatment plan to help reduce inflammation in a safe and effective manner:

  • Ultrasound
  • Electric Muscle Stimulation
  • TENS
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Cryotherapy

Whether an injury is new (acute) or old (chronic), the use of these therapies can greatly reduce the amount of swelling, inflammation and stiffness which can distort proper join biomechanics and ultimately be the cause of your pain.

Nutritional Counseling and Supplementation

Nordic Naturals

All injuries experienced by the human body are ultimately associated with varying degrees of imbalances with regards to underlying body chemistry. For example, lack of proper hydration can sometimes be the cause for tissue and joint stiffness. Other vitamin and nutrient deficiencies are very common these days and are often the missing piece to the puzzle when dealing with stubborn and chronic injuries. Bassora Family Chiropractic proudly offers a line of nutritional supplements from Nordic Naturals® to help improve how your body functions and heals from the inside out. Please don't hesitate to ask which product may best help you to feel your best today.

Custom Orthotics by Foot Levelers®

Orthotics are inserts that comfortably fit into your shoes which are designed to support and improve the function of your feet. your feet have an extremely important job: they carry all of your body weight throughout the day. Every step makes an impact on your body and that impact is greatly exaggerated with exercise. If your foot functions improperly it will have an effect on joints higher up the kinetic chain (your ankle, knee, hip and spine). This may result in pain, discomfort, or muscle compensation anywhere from the foot to the back. Because of this we occasionally prescribe orthotics as part of a patient's treatment plan that suffer from chronic lower extremity/back problems or athletes to help maximize performance during sport.
