Manual Therapy

The many methods and techniques of manual therapy all involve specifically directed manual force to the body in order to improve range of motion, relieve muscle tension and to reduce musculoskeletal pain. Because we are trained in a variety of massage and other manual therapy modalities; patients seeking manual therapy treatment are assured of receiving only the finest quality chiropractic care. Our professionals carefully evaluate your condition before administering manual therapy treatment which may include traction massage, deep tissue work, soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization and more.

All manual therapies performed are meant to reduce pain and encourage total body wellness. Additional benefits of manual therapy include spasm relief, cell metabolism, disc decompression and the reduction of nerve pressure and scar tissue.

We strive to educate our patients and community on how to live healthier lives. In our office we accomplish this goal by using a many chiropractic adjusting techniques and even use a new one called Koren Specific Technique, or KST.
This revolutionary chiropractic technique is probably unlike any treatment you may have experienced in another office. It is very different than manual adjusting, because there is no cracking, popping or twisting. Most chiropractic adjustments, in fact, will be done with the patient sitting or standing up. We use a chiropractic tool called the Arthrostim to tap the bone into place. This tool allows us to easily and comfortably adjust any bone, including your cranial bones. An overwhelming amount of our patients have had amazing results with the KST technique, including many who have not responded to other manual adjustments or have come to our office because they have “tried everything else” without success. KST is very gentle, but very powerful.

**Disclaimer: Some insurance companies will say some techniques are experimental and investigative and will not pay for their application. With those certain insurance companies we will use only the techniques they recognize as accepted for payment. Its good that ins. companies can dictate the care a patient needs even though some of these techniques have been utilized for 20 – 30+ years and are quicker and safer to use.
