Although most chiropractor’s main method of treatment typically consists of spinal adjustments, the chiropractors at Royal Palm Chiropractic and Wellness also employ many adjunctive therapies and applications in order to provide the most effective and efficient relief from neuromusculoskeletal disorders. Here is a look at the other treatments that are offered.
A chiropractic spinal adjustment is a cornerstone of chiropractic treatment. Spinal adjustments are used successfully to treat soft tissue disorders as well as other health issues.
A spinal adjustment is the process of applying a quick and gentle pressure to “subluxated” vertebrae in a corrective manner. The adjustments are not painful, and many years of study and practice are necessary to acquire the skills of providing an effective and safe spinal adjustment.
Research shows spinal adjustments to be the most effective treatment in dealing with back pain. This is because spinal adjustments correct many of the structural, biomechanical, and neurological abnormalities of the spine which cause or contribute to a high number of back, neck, and other non-spinal ailments.
Soft Tissue & Massage Therapy
There are a number of soft tissue therapies that can be successfully employed to assist in the reduction of pain. Some of these therapies include: massage therapy, trigger point therapy, somatic therapy, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, acupressure point therapy, and rolfing. The benefits of these therapies vary from patient to patient. Depending on your condition and response to treatment we may incorporate one or more of these therapies into your treatment plan.
