What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health care profession focused on providing treatments that support your body’s natural healing abilities. At New Medical Center, the team utilizes a number of chiropractic techniques to support your health and wellness needs, including spinal manipulation, nutritional counseling, and rehabilitation.
Spinal manipulation refers to the realigning of your spine to improve movement and function and is the treatment most often associated with chiropractic care. However, the team at New Medical Center also utilizes specialized chiropractic techniques to restore health, including:
Active Release Techniques® (ART®)
ART is a specialized technique that involves a hands-on evaluation of your muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments, and nerves to assess movement, texture, and tension. Areas of abnormalities are treated with precisely directed tension and specific movements of your body. The goal of ART is to restore normal mobility among your muscles, fascia, and nerves.
The Graston Technique utilizes a unique tool that introduces microtrauma to a targeted area to break up scar tissue and improve range of motion.
While the name of the procedure may sound intimidating, dry needling is safe, minimally discomforting and often an effective technique for patients with certain musculoskeletal presentations. Dry needling is a treatment performed by skilled, trained therapists, certified in the procedure. A thin monofilament needle penetrates the skin and treats underlying muscular trigger points for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.
So, what is a trigger point? A trigger point is a local contracture or tight band in a muscle fiber that can disrupt function, restrict range of motion, refer pain or cause local tenderness. When dry needling is applied to a dysfunctional muscle or trigger point, it can decrease banding or tightness, increase blood flow, and reduce local and referred pain.
The chiropractic tools and techniques offered at New Medical Center are safe, comfortable, and effective.
