HUMMEL CHIROPRACTIC PAIN MANAGEMENT CARE
The chiropractic adjustment is a common therapeutic treatment for back and neck pain and applies manipulation to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. The primary goal of an adjustment is to improve spinal alignment and motion, thereby relieving nerve irritation, pressure, and pain.
An advanced technology with the use of an activating instrument is used to assist with chiropractic adjustments. The adjusting instrument is specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function.
Spinal Decompression involves stretching the spine by using a traction table or similar motorized device. It is considered a safe and effective treatment designed to help relieve your acute back, neck or referred pain. A high percentage of patients show significant reduction of pain and soft tissue healing.
The primary use of electrical stimulation therapy tool is for muscle relaxation and pain relief. To begin with, four conducting pads are placed around the treatment area. The intensity is then increased slowly allowing the current to flow through you to the opposite pads.
We use X-rays in order to maintain the highest technical level of patient care possible. The X-ray services are an important aspect to identify problem areas and provide a detailed look at what is happening with the bone structure of the entire spine and surrounding skeletal structure.
Interferential Electro-Therapy is a therapeutic treatment to aid in the relief of pain from sprains or spasms, and the promotion of soft tissue healing. This therapy accomplishes this with a very low simulated frequency that is put on the soft tissue.
Ultrasound is a form of deep heat therapy created by sound waves. Ultrasound therapy is a painless procedure and many people find it relaxing. This therapy promotes circulation and healing, relaxes muscle spasm, decreases inflammation and helps to alleviate pain.
Cryotherapy is the application of ice to reduce the temperature of tissues directly on or below the surface of the skin. Cold temperatures reduce nerve transmission of painful symptoms and provide temporary relief. It is most often used to manage acute injuries.
