Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy is the primary treatment used by chiropractors. Joint manipulation (an adjustment) is used to put movement into a specific joint that is not moving properly. It involves gentle pressure and a shallow force to restore optimal motion.
Myofascial Release is an equally important treatment technique at Evergreen Family Chiropractic. Muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia often contribute to the source of pain and dysfunction. Soft tissue manipulation may be performed manually or with specific tools to reduce tension, improve flexibility and decrease pain.
IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation) is a treatment technique that utilizes specially designed instruments to assist in detecting and treating areas exhibiting scar tissue, soft tissue restriction, fascial adhesions, or chronic inflammation.
Cupping Therapy uses negative pressure and suction to release rigid tissue, loosen adhesions, lift connective tissue and bring blood flow to skin and muscles.
Kinesiology Taping is used to reduce or control pain, manage swelling or edema, increase proprioception and maintain a level of functionality and support.
Therapeutic Exercises are an integral part of the rehabilitation process of an injury or condition. They are typically prescribed to address range of motion, muscle performance, posture, balance and coordination, stabilization and altered movement patterns.
