Chiropractic

Integrated Medicine ChiropractorChiropractic is the treatment of the human body without the use of drugs or surgery.  Chiropractic features hands on methods which includes treatments such as:

Chiropractic Adjustments/Manipulation

Manipulation is a manual, hands on treatment that provides motion to restricted joints.  Joints become restricted due to factors such as posture, position, trauma, or repetitive stress.  A restricted joint can be a source of pain.  Restricted joints can create problems elsewhere in the body by compensation mechanisms.  Dr. Dino and Dr. Marie are trained in finding the location of restricted joints.  The doctors are well versed in many forms of manipulation to the spine and extremities (upper and lower body).  They practice both traditional and low force techniques to add motion to restricted joints, decrease your pain, and improve your function.  The doctors choose the best technique for the patient and for the situation.  Please feel free to ask the doctors for more information.  Some of the techniques used are:

  • Diversified
  • Motion Palpation
  • Thompson
  • Cox Flexion-Distraction (Low Force)
  • Activator (Low Force)
  • Basic (Low Force)
  • Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT)

Soft Tissue Mobilization

Soft tissue mobilization is the treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and other connective tissues of the body.  The goal of these manual, hands on techniques are to restore normal length, tone and elasticity (spring) of tissue.  These techniques help to decrease pain, improve tissue quality, remove adhesions and improve joint mobility.  The doctors are well versed in many soft tissue techniques, choosing the right technique for the patient and situation.  Please feel free to ask the doctors for more information.
