Services and Procedures

Chiropractic Assessment and Manipulation
Chiropractic is a drug-free healing art designed to help an individual's inborn ability to self-heal. The purpose of chiropractic care is to make sure that the nervous system, which controls and regulates every function of your body, has a chance to do its job optimally. Chiropractic cannot be duplicated by any other healthcare system. Chiropractic care finds and treats the cause of your problem instead of masking the symptom. The adjustments are designed to restore normal movement of your spine without pain and optimal function of your nervous system.

Chiropractic spinal manipulation has now had about three decades of very active research, and hundreds of studies have been published in peer-reviewed medical journals examining its clinical usefulness. Spinal manipulation has been found to be effective in the treatment of low back pain (particularly chronic pain), neck pain, muscle tension headaches, and several other conditions. Performed properly, it can relieve musculoskeletal discomfort as well as improve the circulation of blood. Dr. Johnson is proficient in Diversified, Gonstead, Basic, Thompson and Activator technique.

Massage Therapy
Addressing soft tissue problems is an important complement to chiropractic care. This is because muscles move joints, while ligaments and fascia support them. If a subluxation is adjusted without addressing related soft tissue problems, you may still experience pain. In addition, your tight muscles and shortened fascia can pull your joint out of alignment again.

Massage therapists use a variety of techniques to address soft tissue problems. Gentle kneading and stretching lengthens contracted muscles and fascia. Techniques such as sustained pressure, ice massage and stretching can release trigger points. Painful sprains and strains, as well as myofascial adhesions, can be addressed directly with massage techniques that improve circulation and stimulate healthy separation and realignment of injured fibres.

In general, massage increases circulation. This reduces painful swelling and inflammation, and promotes healing by removing waste products and bringing nutrients to your tissues. Like a sponge absorbing water, both fascia and muscles begin to soften and lengthen.

You can benefit in a number of ways by adding massage therapy to your chiropractic care program. Recovery is normally faster and more complete when you address multiple components of your pain. Chiropractic treatment often proceeds more easily, with less discomfort, when soft tissue has been relaxed with massage. You may be less anxious and more ready to receive chiropractic adjustment after a relaxing massage. Adjustments frequently last longer when muscle tension is released that might otherwise pull your joints out of alignment again.

Hyrotherapy
Our hydrotherapy bed offers many physiological and therapeutic benefits. The hydrotherapy bed provides a gentle or deep penetrating massage. The hydrotherapy bed's unique combination of hydrotherapy, massotherapy, floatation sensation, and gentle or deep massage increases circulation, and removes and eliminates harmful toxins from the body. The hydrotherapy bed's dry massage system helps the body rejuvenate itself and melts away the stresses of the day. Hydrotherapy beds have been recognized as a valuable method of physical and psychological healing and rejuvenation, offering the user preventative and curative treatment.

Cyrotherapy
Cryotherapy is the local or general use of low temperatures in medical therapy or the removal of heat from a body part. The term "cryotherapy" comes from the Greek cryo (κρυο) meaning cold. Its goal is to decrease cellular metabolism, increase cellular survival, decrease inflammation, decrease pain and spasm, promote vasoconstriction, and when using extreme temperatures, to destroy cells by crystallizing the cytosol. The most prominent use of the term refers to the surgical treatment, specifically known as cryosurgery.

Interferential Current
Interferential current therapy is a treatment used to relieve pain and to promote soft-tissue healing. Tiny electrical impulses are induced into the tissues of the injured area. These waves intersect below the surface of the skin; the low-frequency stimulation induces the body to secrete endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain-killers. Most patients find interferential therapy to be very beneficial and describe the treatment as being relaxing as it reduces pain and inflammation. Ligament sprains, muscle strains and spasms often respond well to interferential current therapy. The benefits of this therapy include:

  • Increases circulation for faster healing
  • Exercises the muscles in a controlled environment
  • Resets the resting length of the muscles
  • Releases endorphins for pain management
  • Reduces or decreases the inflammation
Intersegmental Traction
Intersegmental traction is an effective chiropractic therapy that induces passive motion into the spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints and increasing mobility. Intersegmental traction helps to gently and effectively reestablish normal range of motion to your spine. It also facilitates muscle relaxation to significantly reduce muscle spasms. Whether you’re a professional athlete, runner, or just someone who often exercises, the stress and trauma to your spine can be debilitating-especially with age and wear and tear.

At Back and Neck Care Center, intersegmental traction is delivered through the use of a traction table. You lay down on the table (on your back) and there are rollers just underneath the surface of the table. These rollers can be adjusted depending on your chiropractic condition and weight to gently and specifically elongate and stretch your spinal joints and muscles. This helps to reduce muscle spasms and increases your range of motion for your spinal joints (each vertebra). When your muscles become more relaxed and vertebrae begin to move normally, your vertebral discs now have their normal space and can return to their normal position and functioning.  Intersegmental traction is a particularly effective chiropractic therapy when used in conjunction with chiropractic manipulative therapy.

Active Musculoskeletal Physical Therapy
Physical Therapy plays an important role in the treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal pain. Therapy ranges from passive modalities (such as heat, ice, and electrical stimulation) to active treatments such as stabilization and strengthening exercises. An active rehabilitation program is important to provide stabilization and strengthening to the injured area. Our physical therapist works with you to develop a specific program for spine strengthening and an individualized exercise program.
