Chiropractic care improves the functioning of your nervous system and spine. It’s a more natural, holistic approach without the need for surgery or medications that can sometimes have risks and side effects.
The Aligned Medical Group detects misalignments and restrictions in your joints, and corrects them with gentle chiropractic techniques, such as spinal manipulation therapy and other joint and tissue manipulations. The goal is to create movement in areas that are tight and restricted. Nearly any joint of the body can benefit from chiropractic manipulation, including, but not limited to the: spine, shoulders, knees, hips, ankles, fingers and wrists.
A misaligned spine can cause a host of problems. In some cases, it can cause the joints to lock up and put pressure on nerves, causing pain, discomfort, and even a loss of functionality.
Chiropractic is an alternative medicine primarily centered on the diagnosis and treatment of the musculoskeletal system’s mechanical disorders.
The Aligned Medical group offers a variety of modalities and chiropractic treatment options:
Flexion distraction is a chiropractic manipulation for the lower back and hips. Your Aligned Medical Group provider applies a gentle, controlled distractive force that stretches individual segments of the spine.
The treatment involves the use of a specialized chiropractic treatment table with a hydraulic mechanism that uses a smooth, pumping motion to stretch the joints.
It’s a low-force treatment that’s safe for geriatric patients, those with various back conditions, and even pregnant women. The table has an abdominal release piece to gently cradle the abdomen in a safe position during pregnancy.
Manual joint manipulation is the Aligned Medical Group’s treatment of choice for the back, neck, and all upper and lower extremities.
Your Aligned Medical Group chiropractor uses his or her hands to stimulate more movement in your joint to increase the range of motion, improve mobility, decrease pain and loosen any tight muscles.
The Aligned Medical Group chooses from a myriad of techniques with different intensities, from low to high, depending on your individual need.
Low force manipulation is used for seniors, infants, and children, acute pain, or for osteoporosis and conditions that might require a softer hands-on approach. Most patients experience immediate relief following this treatment.
