Our Services

At City Chiropractic, we offer a unique and effective treatment approach to manage pain and conditions from relief to recovery. While chiropractic manipulation helps restore joint mobility and alignment, we also use exercise rehabilitation and various muscle and soft-tissue therapies to address any muscular weakness, imbalance or damage that often results from injury. This combined approach to treatment means fewer treatment sessions are usually needed and longer-lasting results obtained.

The following are short descriptions of some of the therapies that may be used as part of a standard treatment plan:

Chiropractic

Chiropractic is the primary treatment intervention used at the surgery. It is most beneficial in cases of spinal discomfort (back & neck pain), disc injuries, nerve irritation (sciatica, pins & needles in the arms, etc.), and for headaches. These conditions often result from misalignments of the bones of the spine that develop from poor posture, repetitive strain, improper lifting, whiplash or other injuries. Chiropractic adjustments help restore the normal alignment and motion of the spine, which alleviates painful pressure while correcting the source of the problem.

Myofascial Techniques

In conjunction with chiropractic treatment, we regularly use specialized muscle manipulation techniques, or myofascial techniques, in the treatment of sports injuries and other soft-tissue conditions. With many injuries, muscles in the surrounding areas may become damaged and tense, thus increasing the amount of pain and dysfunction experienced. Myofascial techniques involve stretching these muscles while applying precise pressure to the “knots” that often develop, quickly reducing tension and relieving pain.

Personalized Rehabilitation Exercise Programs

Many injuries, especially those of a chronic nature, often result in a loss of normal muscle strength and conditioning, even after the pain has subsided. While most people are unaware of this residual weakness, it actually places them at higher risk for re-injury. Therefore, to ensure a safe return to work, activities or sport, we will prescribe a personalized, step-by-step program of progressive exercises to supplement treatment or as a follow-up to care. The programs are designed to strengthen and rehabilitate identified weak areas, but are usually simple enough to be performed at home or using inexpensive exercise aids.

General Health Information

Beyond the formal therapy provided during treatment sessions, our chiropractors are always available to provide information, offer advice or to discuss general health issues, including diet and exercise, manual handling, posture, nutritional supplementation, or anything that will help enhance the benefit of treatment and promote healthier lifestyles. We are also available to speak to groups, businesses or associations about chiropractic, chiropractic sports injury management, and other health topics.
