Kinesiotaping

Kinesiotaping is a technique that activates your body’s natural healing processes while providing support and stability to joints and muscles.

Traditional chiropractic examines the whole body for joints that have lost mobility. They restore movement in fixated joints by utilizing specific controlled adjustments with their hands. Adjustments have been shown to not only increase joint motion, but also stimulate positive neurological effects that change pain, inflammation, and protective muscle spasms. An adjustment is sometimes accompanied by a "pop' or 'crack', which is a result of the release of nitrogen gas bubble, not a joint 'popping' back into place. 

 

Loss of normal joint movement leads to the body have to work harder in other areas of the body to compensate. When joints work harder or differently than they were designed to, it may cause degenerative changes, pain from overworking. We find restrictions by utilizing dynamic joint movements to identify areas of normal restrictive movement, not necessarily just where it hurts.  

DNS - Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization

DNS is an assessment and treatment system that combines manually assisted exercises and reflex stimulation. 

 

A series of functional movement screens are used to diagnose poor muscle and joint movements that may lead to the injury, pain or energy leaks hampering performance (postural deviations, loss of muscle control, misalignment etc).

Reflex Locomotion (Vojta Therapy)

Reflex locomotion is used when a certain global or local movement patterns are not able to be 'cued' during regular physical therapy exercises. The therapist can start to re-establishing your brains' connection back to these lost abilities by manual reflex stimulation of zones in developmental positions such as 'creeping' or 'turning'.

 

The reflex stimulation is an excellent method to use with acute conditions (ie, sciatica, radiculopathy, and herniated disc), or when the patient has poor body awareness and cannot use muscles properly upon the therapist's command.
