SPINAL MANIPULATION

Chiropractic Treatment of the Spine. For spinal manipulation our doctors are skilled in the use of Diversified Full Spine Adjusting Techniques as well as Activator Techniques which are very gentle methods of treatment.

SOFT TISSUE TECHNIQUES

Soft tissue refers to muscle, ligament, tendon, and other soft tissues that make up the musculoskeletal system.  The musculoskeletal system is often overlooked as the source of a person's pain.  However, it has now been proven that many pains that are chronic and previously thought to be associated with structures such as the spine or skeletal system are in fact distortions of soft tissue.  This clinic co-developed an exciting treatment technique called Myofascial Disruption Technique.  Dr. Brad Hayes in association with Dr. Malcolm Conway and Dr. Hugh Gemmell helped develop and helps teach this technique to doctors internationally.



  • MyoFascial Disruption Technique (MFDT) MyoFascial Disruption Technique (MFDT) is a hands-on approach to treating soft tissue injuries. MFDT recognizes that most, if not all, soft tissue injuries are a result of a separation or a disruption of the fascia. [fascia - a sheet or band of fibrous connective tissue enveloping, separating, or binding together muscles, organs, and other soft structures of the body.]

    The fascia can separate at the origin or insertion of a tendon or ligament. The fascia can separate within the muscle in a band like separation. It can ‘wrinkle’ like a shirt pulled out from your hamper. It can ‘un-coil’ in the extremities like a twisted slinky toy. Dr. Hayes repairs the fascia by 'ironing the wrinkle', meaning he re-attaches the fascia which eliminates your pain.

MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage Therapy services are rendered by a Licensed Massage Therapist.


What is massage?


Massage is a "hands-on" treatment in which a therapist manipulates muscles and other soft tissues of the body to improve health and well-being. Varieties of massage range from gentle stroking and kneading of muscles and other soft tissues to deeper manual techniques. Massage has been practiced as a healing therapy for centuries in nearly every culture around the world. It helps relieve muscle tension, reduce stress, and evoke feelings of calmness. Although massage affects the body as a whole, it particularly influences the activity of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems.
