ACTIVE RELESE TECHNIQUE®
Active Release Techniques (ART) is a type of soft tissue therapy that helps relieve tight muscles and nerve trigger points, greatly reducing joint stress and muscular pains. The goal of ART is to restore normal mobility and “glide” between muscular tissue and nerves. It also helps push joint fluid throughout the body and stimulate the lymphatic system, which helps lower inflammation. Click here to learn more about ART.
DIVERSIFIED CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS
We do not normally adjust from head to toe. We use a Diversified Chiropractic Adjustment Technique and focus on one zone of the body. If someone has neck pain, we will focus on the upper back and neck area only. When we focus on one zone, we release the muscles in that specific area enabling the bones to fall back in alignment easier and not requiring a forceful alignment.
COX FLEXION DISTRACTION
When treating chronic pain sometimes stemming from disc herniations, disc bulges, spinal stenosis, and nerve pains like sciatica, Cox flexion Distraction Technique is preferred. The Cox flexion Distraction is performed on a table that opens up the vertebrae, giving discs room to breathe and relieving pressure. The technique helps relieve pain by reducing the pressure in the spine and on the spinal nerves, and returns motion to the spinal joint
Throughout the day, we put tremendous pressure on the base of our neck when lifting, pushing, pulling, looking down at the phone and looking down at your desk. These pressures produce symptoms of chronic pain. The Cervical Traction Device raises and stretches the neck out to separate the vertebrae and lessen the tension on the neck. Cervical Traction helps to quickly relieve the pain.
TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS
Trigger Point Injections use a plant-based, anti-inflammatory lidocaine. The injections are administered by a licensed nurse practitioner. Once the injections are administered, Dr. Tricia Aiello works on the area that has been treated using Clinic, Level 5 CBD Lotion. Patients sometimes have specific areas with significant muscle spasms. The injections and manual treatments successfully dissipate the muscle spasms.
