Office Care

At Chiropractic Care, we understand that each patient is different, and each condition is unique. That is why each patient is thoroughly assessed in order to determine an accurate diagnosis and tailor the best course of treatment around each individual’s case. Patient’s progress is monitored on a day-to-day basis, and treatment is scheduled around how the patient is responding. Compliance with all aspects of care, including a uniquely designed home care rehab program, will be required as part of the overall plan to establish successful recovery and improve quality of life for each patient. Our physicians will take the necessary time to educate you regarding your condition and treatment plan. As a patient of Chiropractic Care, our physicians have direct access to the Beacon facility clinicians, therapists and other ancillary care that may be called upon.

Chiropractic Care

A chiropractor is a doctor that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, especially those related to the spine. The spine is vulnerable to restricted joint function in the small joints (facet joints) of the back, which can lead to pain and discomfort in the soft tissue around the affected joint. This can be the result of everyday activities, sports, injuries, or accidents. A chiropractor’s treatment centers around spinal manipulation, or adjustment, to correct the restricted joint function. Additional therapy is often used to relieve pain and discomfort, including Active Release Technique (ART), electrotherapy, heat, and ice.

Active Release Technique (ART)

ART is a soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. These structures are consistently strained due to overuse. Overuse causes tears, pulling, sprains and decreased oxygen to the muscles. Each one of these factors can cause your body to produce scar tissue buildup which shortens and weakens the muscle by increasing tension. This process causes tendinitis, nerve entrapment, reduced range of motion, loss of strength and pain. ART can relieve symptoms by reversing this process. This is done by isolating involved muscles and the components of its contraction. The four tissue components that ART addresses are muscle, ligament, nerve and fascia. Each of these can be isolated and treated by taking them through their own specific motions, which has the potential to change the dynamics of the tissue that is being treated.

Functional Rehabilitation

Most injuries or pain involves weakness or damage to the soft tissue which is made up of muscles, tendons, ligaments, or fascia. Due to this it is necessary to not only treat the pain but to also address the deficiencies that may have caused the pain in the first place. Our physician’s accomplish this by tailoring a specific home exercise program to meet the needs of the individual and their unique condition. We expect patients to take an active role in their care by participating in this program so that maximum recovery can be acheived
