Therapy Techniques

Charlotte chiropractorPain reduction frequently requires the application of relaxation therapies aimed at easing specific disruptions in the muscles. These therapies are sometimes sufficient in themselves, but may also be used to make adjustments more effective.

Chiropractors and massage therapists know the muscles, know which pains are caused by what problems, and know what therapies work for each problem.

At Hands for Health Chiropractic here in Charlotte we use the following therapies as appropriate.

Electric Stimulation: Electric Stimulation is used at Hands for Health Chiropractic Center to help relieve pain, accelerate the healing process and to help reduce stress. It is typically done over tissue that has been damaged or in spasm. Electric stimulation is a vital tool in proper management of soft tissue injuries.

Charlotte Chiropractor works with spinal tractionIntersegmental Spinal Traction: Intersegmental spinal traction is an excellent therapy for many types of disorders. At Hands for Health Chiropractic Center, this form of therapy is customized to each individual with regards to depth of treatment, area of treatment and time of treatment. Every case is different and having a therapy that can be customized to the patient is a great advantage that Hands for Health Chiropractic Center has. This very relaxing therapy is geared towards relaxing the muscles surrounding the spine. By relaxing these muscles this therapy is very successful at reducing pain and encouraging overall better health for the muscles of the entire back. 

The Intersegmental Spinal Traction table “massages” the muscles along the spine at designated depths as the patient relaxes.

Myofascial Release: Myofascial Release is another soft tissue management system done at Hands for Health Chiropractic Center in Charlotte that is excellent at addressing adhesions that can occur in the tissue in between muscles and organs. Fascia is a very thin, lubricating tissue the encompasses all of our organs and tissues and is responsible for allowing tissues to slide by on another as they work instead of adhering to one another. When they adhere to one another scar tissue can form and cause major problems and pain to any individual. Myofascial Release is a very effective, pain free way to help release these adhesions so that tissue can move freely and without incumberment. 

Ice/Heat: Ice and Heat therapies work well with electric stimulation or on their own. They are a great adjunct to chiropractic care. Typically a therapy of ice is prescribed for patients with acute injuries to help slow down any inflammation that may be occurring. Ice is typically used during the first week of care. Heat therapies are used as a continuation of care from ice and as an initial form of care in patients with more chronic conditions. Heat has the opposite effects of ice. Both have been proven as effective therapies in the acceleration of repair to injured tissue. 

Fascial Movement Taping (FMT): Fascial Movement Taping (FMT) using Rocktape is a theraputic tool that helps your fascia work better to support your skeletal structure and recovery. First used by Japanese chiropractors, Fascial Movement Taping has been a great adjunct to chiropractic care.
