Treatment Methods

Flexion/Distraction Therapy

Flexion Distraction Therapy is a non-surgical alternative intervention that can treat a variety of spinal conditions, especially those involving disc injuries, sciatica, chronic or acute lower back pain, and strained musculature in the thoracic, lumbar, or sacral regions. This therapy works by creating a pumping action within the spine, encouraging the flow of nutrients and hydration to the discs. It also increases flexibility and improves the overall function of the spine. 

Deep Tissue Manipulation

Deep tissue manipulation is a massage technique that targets deep muscle layers and connective tissues. It involves applying slow, deliberate strokes with deep pressure on the muscles while simultaneously moving the affected muscle into a tolerable range of motion. The practitioner may also encourage the patient to actively engage the muscles, providing additional stimulus to the muscle fibers and promoting the release of chronic tension and muscle adhesions, leading to relief from pain and increased flexibility. This technique shares similarities with the pin and stretch principles used in sports massages and Active Release Techniques. 

Therapeutic Exercise

These exercises are tailored to provide patients with customized routines relevant to their specific circumstances, aiming to address distinct musculoskeletal issues. They offer patients various movement techniques, enhancing overall functionality and enabling the body to function as a unified system. This aspect is vital for healing, fostering the patient's confidence in a new way of moving, improving circulation, and ultimately enabling them to thrive.
