Chiropractic

Did you know that beyond treating many issues of the spine, Chiropractors at Health Sciences Lab treat many other conditions. These include:

  • Migraines
  • Infant colic
  • Jaw pain
  • Whiplash
  • Tennis/golfers elbow
  • Wrist injuries
  • Hip injuries
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • Knee pain
  • Shin splints
  • Foot injuries
  • Plantar Faciitis

In the broad spectrum of healthcare, Chiropractic Adjustments are often vital to restoring function to joints and to inhibiting and controlling pain pathways. Due to acute injury, or, chronically over time, joints can sustain pressures that damage their supporting structures or cartilaginous elements, which causes abnormal movement patterns, locking, or fixation. In many cases, chiropractic manipulative therapy is the only method to achieve deep penetration of soft tissues and affect the deeper elements of the joint capsule, synovial membranes, ligaments, and cartilage.

Not only does the chiropractic adjustment restore motion to joints that become locked, restricted, or develop altered movement patterns, but also can directly affect the nervous system. They can inhibit pain, improve blood flow, and restore proper resting muscle tone to the surrounding muscles.

For those who choose not to receive Chiropractic adjustments, a variety of low or no-force techniques can be used as an alternative in order to achieve desired results. Techniques like Thompson drop table, SOT, joint mobilizations, and Active Release Techniques© are often utilized in conjunction with adjustments or by themselves, depending on patient preference or the intent of the treatment being delivered.
