Chiropractic Adjustments


 

The term “adjustment” refers to the specific manipulation chiropractors apply to vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally

The term “adjustment” refers to the specific manipulation chiropractors apply to vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. The objective of the chiropractic treatment is to restore or increased range of motion which reduces nerve irritability and improves function. There are times when joint cavitation or popping does not occur. The reasoning for this varies and can be explained by your doctor.

Benefits of the chiropractic adjustment:

  • Restore joint function and increased range of motion
  • Decompress spinal nerves
  • Create an inhibitory reflex that reduces spasm
  • Release of endorphins that that our the body’s natural pain killers

Spinal Decompression


 

A better option for disc herniations. Make surgery your last option.

At Holmes Spine & Sport we use two types of spinal decompression. Type I is a manual decompression technique which include a hands on spinal flexion and distraction method. Type II is an automatic decompression machine. Both types have a success rate of 90% in the treatment of disc bulges, herniations, spinal stenosis and sciatica. Our spinal decpression treatments may be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments.

Effects of spinal decompression:

Increases disc height removing lesion from the spinal nerve
Improves circulation
Decreases disc pressure
Increases the area through which the nerve passes from the spine
Helps restore normal spinal motion

If surgery has been recommended or other conservative options such as epidural injections or nerve blocks have failed, try spinal decompression preformed and supervised by doctors of chiropractic. Please call our doctors if you have any questions.

Research on this technique’s treatment and outcomes are available upon request

Massage is an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs and has proven beneficial to many chronic conditions such as low back pain, arthritis, and bursitis. Massage helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living.

Massage provides relief to people from all walks of life – the weekend or competitive athlete, the home gardener, the overstressed executive struggling to keep pace in today’s economy. Secretaries, laborers, waitresses – anyone can feel a need for massage at some point in time. The older population, as well, will benefit from massage, as it can enhance flexibility and circulation.

The services of a massage professional may be covered by health insurance when prescribed by a chiropractor.

Graston Technique


 

The Graston Technique is changing the way chiropractors and patients view treatment of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries.

The Graston Technique, originally developed for athletes, is changing the way clinicians, including athletic trainers, chiropractors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and patients view treatment of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. The Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The Technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. At Holmes Spine & Sport Chiropractic and our doctors use and apply these techniques. For more information on the Graston technique please visit our videos page or go to www.grastontechnique.com

Electrostimulation


 

Benefits of electrostimulation:

Decrease muscle spasm and edema thus decreasing pain.
Promotes circulation which aids in the healing process

We use Dynatronics’ – an industry leader in electrstimulation devices.

Ultrasound


 

Therapeutic ultrasound has been used in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions for years, primarily because it effectively promotes healing in the injured tissue and helps reduce pain. Its ability to penetrate deeper than other heat-based modalities facilitates a beneficial effect on deep muscle tissue. Ultrasound can treat a wide range of acute and chronic conditions, such as tendonitis, muscle spasms, bursitis, fasciitis, edema, sprains, contractures, and adhesions.

The basic benefits provided through this treatment include:

Increased elasticity of collagen in tendons, joint capsules, and scar tissue.
Increased motor and sensory nerve conduction velocities, which assists in reducing pain.
Altered contractile activity to skeletal muscle, which reduces muscle spasm.
Diminished muscle spindle activity, another factor in muscle spasm reduction.
Increased blood flow.

At Spine & Sport we use Dyanatronics’ the only ultrasound devices in the industry offering 1, 2, and 3 MHz frequencies for the greatest flexibility in depth of treatment.

Orthotics


 

We use a flexible, custom-made orthotic made by Foot levers. We have found these to be the best at providing comfort and stability at an affordable price. Because the orthotics are custom and there are a variety to choose from we can within weeks have an orthotic that matches your lifestyle. You don’t have to put up with achy and problematic feet.
