Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments

Rejuvenate Life Chiropractic offers both manual adjustments (performed with the doctors hands) and instrument adjustments (performed with adjusting tools).

Many patients will experience both types of adjustments.  Customization of what each individual needs at any present moment will determine the type of adjustment performed.

Chiropractic Dry Needling

Chiropractic dry needling is a way to positively affect the movement patterns in the body and helps to eliminate chronic pain patterns.  Dry needling affects the fascial systems of the body.  Fascia is the type of tissue that separates layers of muscle tissues or organs from one another.

Extremity Adjusting

Adjusting, manipulating or mobilizing all the joints, besides the spine include:

  • Shoulder(s), elbow(s), wrist(s), hand(s)
  • Hip(s), knee(s), ankle(s),  foot/feet
  • Finger(s)/Toe(s)
  • Ear ossicles
  • Jaw
  • Ribs
  • Visceral Manipulation

Soft-Tissue Mobilization

Utilizing techniques that address soft-tissue changes in the body is crucial to help the joint function optimally.  Releasing tight and irritated tissues play a large role in patient outcomes with the treatment.  It is vitally important to address the health of all the components of the joint for optimal results.

Exercises

It is very common to have certain exercises prescribed for the patient to complete at home. The doctor is only able to be with the patient a very small portion of the time between visits. It is important to give patients the tools that they need in order to help them recover appropriately from the condition that is ailing them

Kinesiology Taping

A very useful tool to assist in the proper motion of a joint is referred to as kinesiology tape.  There are many different brands, but the technique and principles behind them remain the same.  Kinesiology taping is different from splinting.  Splinting involves decreasing motion, whereas kinesiology taping helps to induce proper motion to a joint.
