CHIROPRACTIC

Chiropractic is a diversified service that treats all areas related to the musculoskeletal system. This includes all muscle, joint, nerve related issues. Joint manipulation is a commonly used modality within the chiropractic scope. It is a type of passive movement of a skeletal joint, using high-velocity-low- amplitude (HVLA) thrusting maneuvers. It reduces pressure in various joint cavities from the spine to ankles and knees. Joint manipulation increases range of motion in joints and restores function.​​

Dr. Amanda utilizes a wide range of adjunct services within her chiropractic treatments. More details on these services are listed below.

 
PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy is treatment to restore, maintain, and make the most of a patient's mobility, function, and well-being. Physiotherapy helps through physical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and health and fitness. Practitioners get involved you involved in your own recovery and improved/enhanced performance.

 
ACUPUNCTURE

Medical Acupuncture

Fine solid needles are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites along the meridians. It is then stimulated with electrical current for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system.

​​

Functional Integrated Needling

Differs from medical acupuncture in that it does not use meridians. The needles are inserted into specific anatomic structures to promote blood flow; in turn decreasing muscle tension and pain.

ATHLETE FUNCTIONAL SCREENING

If an athlete desires that competitive edge, they should obtain this functional screening. One does not have to be in pain in order to identify a loss of range of motion and/or strength. All joints from head to toe are screened for this and treated in order to optimize performance in their particular sport.

 

CUSTOM ORTHOTICS

Biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. This imbalance could be stemming anywhere on the lower limb and will be assessed individually.

 

CUPPING

An ancient therapy that creates suction on the skin promoting blood flow and reducing muscle tension.

FASCIAL ABRASION TECHNIQUE

This instrument is used to scan the body for fascial restrictions and scar tissue. It causes a controlled micro trauma that stimulates specialized nerve endings in the skin and fascia that help to normalize fascial tone.

PERFORMANCE TAPING

The application of the tape is geared to restrict activity of a tight muscle and facilitate activity of an underutilized muscle. Performance taping may be used on to help with daily postural deviations and also optimizing function in athletic performances. It can be worn for 24 hours a day, 3-5 days/week.
