Our medical professionals employ a wide range of proven techniques for each individual case. Below, you’ll find a brief explanation of the popular chiropractic techniques we use at our practice.
Diversified Technique, coupled with static and motion palpation, has evolved into a system of analysis and means of adjusting the spinal column. The combination produces specific adjustments.
The primary purpose of Trigger Point Therapy is to reduce the pain that results from hypersensitive muscles. Trigger points are identified by gently pressing on the surface of the skin, sensing the texture of the underlying muscle.
A trigger point is like a knot the size of a pea, buried deep in the muscle tissue. It is made up of lactic acid, a normal byproduct of muscular activity, which sometimes gets trapped in the muscle from physical, chemical or emotional stress.
This technique makes use of specialized drop-piece mechanisms in the table to assist the adjustment. Individual cushions or "drop pieces" located along the table support each area of the spine until the thrust is given. Then, each drop-piece gently gives way, reducing the pressure needed to move a specific spinal segment.
Our office employs many physical therapy modalities, including pelvic blocks, electrical muscle stimulation, stretching, and sagittal curve remodeling to complement our other techniques. Biofreeze topical analgesic is also available upon request!
Massage therapy can play a major role in the recovery process when partnered with chiropractic care. Dr. Hudson works closely with massage therapists and can recommend someone to you.
