The practice of manipulation of joints both of the spine and of extremities for pain reduction and increase in function.
These treatments can consist of:
- Spinal manipulation
- Muscle release
- Neuromuscular integration
- Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Management and mobilizations.
Often a chiropractic adjustment is thought to just treat back pain, but it can be applied to any joint in the body.
Improper joint movement will interfere with the overall movement quality of the body and can lead to pain and/or tissue damage. Chiropractic adjustments safely and effectively restore motion to restricted joints and normalize the movement of the body as a whole.
When you experience muscle or joint pain, massage therapy is a good way to find relief. Massage therapy relaxes muscle tension and promotes blood flow, which helps return your muscles to health. Massage also eases joint stiffness and pain, increasing flexibility. Through massage therapy, you not only get relief from joint and muscle pain but relief from anxiety and stress, as well.
Kinesiology is defined as "the study of the mechanics of body movements" at its core. Kinesiologists are clinicians who specialise in biomechanical and musculoskeletal problems.
They play an important role in acute care after an injury, long-term care after an injury or surgery, and ‘prehab,' or actions taken to reduce the likelihood of future injuries.
