Chiropractic Adjustment

Your doctor will evaluate the joints around your area of pain to determine if a joint is limited in its normal range of motion. The adjustment is then performed at the sites of restriction to restore proper movement and function. The result is often immediate, providing a feeling of extreme relief. The adjustment has the benefits of increasing spinal flexibility, normalizing muscle tone, and improving the function of the nervous system. There are many Chiropractic techniques, but our doctors prefer manual, hands-on adjustments to achieve the desired results.

Physiological Therapeutics

Physiotherapies are a regular part of treatment plans at Synergy Chiropractic & Acupuncture. physiological therapeutics enhance recovery and effectively maintain the results of your treatments. Early phases of care often include treatment with Therapeutic Ultrasound and/or Electric Muscle Stimulation to relieve muscle pain, reduce muscle tension, and increase healing circulation to the area.
Muscle stretches are frequently used to balance muscle tone, which reduces painful areas of tension and improves function.

Functional Rehabilitation

Progressive functional exercises are used with advanced stretching techniques to strengthen and coordinate muscle groups. The doctors at Synergy Chiropractic & Acupuncture use “functional exams,” which evaluate your body mechanics to determine which specific exercises you need for optimal recovery. This is unlike most other clinics which provide generic exercises for a non-specific goal.

Flexion-Distraction Technique

Flexion-Distraction technique uses a specialized table that allows your doctor to gently stretch your back in a specific way while applying gentle pressure to your spine.  It is an option your doctor can use to treat cases of sciatica, disc herniation, spinal stenosis, failed back surgery syndromes, or general low back pain.

Therapeutic Laser Treatment

Lasers of this kind are often referred to as “cold lasers,” or “low level lasers,” and represent the latest technology in conservative treatments.  Your doctor will use a focused beam of light set at a precise wavelength to trigger biological reactions in the cells of the area of concern.  These reactions increase cell metabolism which decreases healing time, decreases inflammation, improves nervous system function, and reduces pain.  Treatments are painless and quick, and patients often experience only a slight tingling sensation if anything at all.  The equipment we use is FDA approved and backed by significant clinical research.

Kinesio Tape®

A specialized type of elastic, water-proof athletic tape is applied to the skin to normalize muscle tone, enhance recovery from muscle or joint injury, and/or reduce swelling or bruising. The tape is worn for several days for continual support and maximum benefits. This type of therapy is especially useful in athletes and sport-related injuries.  Many professional athletes and Olympians use Kinesio Tape® both in injury recovery and support during events.

Nutritional Counseling/Supplementation

Dietary recommendations may be given to support and improve illness or injury recovery, or to enhance well-being. The doctors also have the highest quality nutritional supplements available on the market today. These supplements are only available to healthcare providers and are developed based on the most recent research. They provide the proper dosages for optimal absorption into your body which increases the effectiveness of the therapy and is more cost effective for the patient.

Activator Treatment

The Activator tool is an instrument your doctor may use to provide a very specific and gentle adjustment to a joint with similar results as a Chiropractic Adjustment delivered by hand. Although manual adjustments are preferred by the doctors at Synergy Chiropractic & Acupuncture, activator treatments are often times very useful in treating children or the elderly.

Custom Shoe Orthotics

Using the latest technology from Foot Levelers orthotics company, your doctor can scan your feet to map pressure points that indicate how healthy the arches of your feet are.  These results are used with a gait analysis exam to create a customized orthotic shoe insert specifically for you to correct for improper foot mechanics that may be contributing to foot, knee, hip, or back pain.
