A chiropractic adjustment refers to a chiropractor applying manipulation to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally.
The objective of this chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, with the goals of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability and improving function.
TRIGGER POINT DRY NEEDLING
Dry needling is an effective technique Dr. Jordan uses to treat myofascial (muscular) pain with very few side effects. The technique uses a “dry” needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle, known as trigger points. Dry needling is not acupuncture. Dry needling is a part of modern Western medicine principles, and supported by research.
Why Dry Needling?
Dr. Jordan use dry needling with the goal of releasing or inactivating trigger points to relieve pain or improve range of motion. Preliminary research supports that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, and normalizes dysfunctions of the motor end plates, the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles. This can help speed up the patient's return to active rehabilitation.
Who Can Benefit from Dry Needling?
Almost anyone experiencing a variety of pain problems including, but not limited to: Acute/Chronic injuries, Headaches, Neck/Back pain, Tendonitis, Muscle Spasms, Sciatica, Hip/Knee pain, Muscle strains, Overuse injuries
FUNCTIONAL & REHAB EXERCISES
Functional and rehab exercises utilize a plan that specifically and effectively targets the imbalanced tissues in the patient's body. Through a series of movements, known as functional screenings, Dr. Jordan is able to focus on the muscles that are causing the dysfunction and create a plan to return you to a state of balance.
SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY
Spinal decompression can help a range of back and neck conditions, particularly disc and spinal nerve damage. It is most effective in cases of herniated, protruding or bulging discs. Fortunately, these conditions can be accurately diagnosed with an MRI. Spinal decompression releases pressure on the spinal cord or on compressed nerves running through the spinal column. The decompression stretches the spine which takes pressure off discs and nerves.
Spinal discs, which are the soft cushions between the spinal joints, are most often affected by spinal trauma or misuse. The next most common cause of spinal pain is compressed nerves, which may be a result of spinal misalignment or related to disc material damage.
Myofascial release therapy is a hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
This allows Dr. Jordan to look at each patient's unique case and perform a one-on-one treatment to help their movement, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.
