Chiropractic health care primarily focuses on examining, evaluating and treating the neck, spine and pelvis to determine if one or many areas are malfunctioning and thus causing abnormal “biomechanics” or body movements. Through aging, gravity, emotional stress, previous injuries and poor posture, our bodies can also become out of balance. This can translate in our bodies as loss of energy, decrease in flexibility, backache, headache and general aches and pains. Chiropractic adjustments can reduce or correct these misalignments so that normal, natural body function may be restored.

What Are Chiropractic Modalties?

Chiropractic modalities include therapeutic activities, such as electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound therapy, stretching, and more. These therapies are essential to the healing process, as they increase range of motion, loosen and strengthen muscles, joints, and ligaments, and protect against recurring or new injuries.

Our Chiropractic Modalties Include:

ELECTRIC MUSCLE STIMULATION

Electric muscle stimulation is a therapeutic modality that focuses on decreasing pain, relieving muscle spasms, and facilitating blood flow to various muscles and tissues. A registered chiropractic assistant, under the direction of our physicians, will place electrodes over targeted areas of pain. Patients will feel a pulsing or buzzing sensation that is very soothing to tired, sore muscles. The main goal of electric muscle stimulation is to relax stiff, tight muscles that may be in spasm, in turn allowing greater range of motion and promoting healing.

ULTRASOUND THERAPY

Ultrasound therapy is carefully and specifically applied to a localized area of acute pain or inflammation. Under the direction of our physicians, registered chiropractic assistants will use an ultrasound wand over the targeted area to break up adhesions in the muscle tissue and ligaments. Ultrasound therapy penetrates up to eight centimeters deep and is extremely effective in bringing healing blood to the area, facilitating healing.

STRETCHING

A very important part of the healing process is lifestyle modification. By teaching stretches to our patients, we are giving them the tools to continue improving their health at home and in everyday life. Chiropractic assistants will educate patients on how to stretch their muscles in order to increase range of motion and flexibility. Patients will also learn proper workplace ergonomics, suitable sleeping positions, and correct posture.

NON-SURGICAL SPINAL DECOMPRESSION

We are proud to offer state of the art spinal decompression (or traction) machines in our office. Traction may be performed on the neck or lower back. Patients with disc issues such as bulges or herniations find that decompression is a fantastic modality and can actually fix the root cause of their problems. Decompression treatments are carefully dictated by our physicians after careful consideration and, most commonly, review of an MRI report. Many patients that opt to do traction are considered surgical candidates and may likely avoid surgery with this treatment. Our decompression machines slowly and mechanically pull (traction) the spine apart with utmost accuracy in order to relieve disc compression and take pressure off of the spinal nerves. With this treatment, pain may be significantly reduced, numbness/tingling in limbs may be resolved, and disc issues may be drastically improved if not wholly healed.

FOOT ORTHOTICS

Our office offers Foot Levelers Orthotics to patients of all ages. Our complimentary foot scan provides patients with a detailed postural analysis and a colorized scan of how their feet are affected. The feet are the foundation of the body, and many back, hip, knee, and foot issues may be significantly improved with these state of the art custom orthotics.

DIGITAL X-RAYS

Digital X-Rays are taken in house to determine cause of pain and to ensure that no extenuating circumstances are present. Digital X-Rays are vital for our physicians to provide the most thorough and accurate care. All X-Rays are done by certified technicians. Patients will review films with the doctors and a radiologist will provide a detailed report after films are sent out for reading.

ATHLETIC PHYSICALS

Athletic or sports physicals are performed in our Cape Coral office. Physicals are conducted on a walk-in basis from 9am-11am, Monday through Friday and 1:30pm-4pm, all days except Thursday. Minors must have an adult present in order for the physical to be completed.
