Instrument Adhesion Release (IAR®)

Posted By Bronwen Samuel / / No Comments

An instrument based form of manual treatment that is designed to effectively remove adhesion without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue. It’s also one of the few instruments on the market that has a proper hands-on training program to teach the provider exactly where and how to treat your problem. Common conditions in which IAR is more effective than MAR or ART are tendinitis of the Achilles and elbows (tendinopathy), forearm pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, anterior shin splints, and plantar fasciitis.

Manual Adhesion Release (MAR®)

Posted By Bronwen Samuel / / No Comments

Is one of the leading soft tissue treatments to reduce scar tissue/adhesion. Adhesion is one of the most common causes of pain, but unfortunately it is a condition that is often overlooked. Adhesion acts like glue among muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and even nerves. As a result, this reduces flexibility, strength, and stability to the body. Adhesion along nerves can cause numbness, burning, aching, tension, tingling, and in some cases weakness. This is called nerve entrapment and can happen in an estimated 156 locations throughout the body. Learn more about adhesion and nerve entrapment on our problems page.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST)

Posted By cmoser / / No Comments

It likely comes as no surprise that our bodies can absorb all the stresses that come our way on a daily basis. Tension weasles itself into all sorts of nooks and crannies, including the body’s craniosacral system (the soft tissues and fluid that protect the brain and spinal cord). The craniosacral system is intimately connected with the all-powerful central nervous system; if one suffers, so does the other. Since the central nervous system is responsible for sending, receiving, and interpreting information from all parts of the body, it’s pretty darn important that it works as it should.

CranioSacral Therapy, by way of an incredibly soft and gentle touch, frees up the tissues in and around
the craniosacral system, resulting in improved form and function of the central nervous system. The body’s
natural healing processes kick in, order is restored, and pain may be significantly reduced.

Stress, whether a little or a lot, is part of life. CranioSacral Therapy can help minimize (or prevent) the toll it can take on the body.

Chiropractic Care

Posted By cmoser / / No Comments

Our bodies are meant to move. Beautifully and without pain.

Joints, muscles, tendons, nerves, bones and all our other insides should exist and function harmoniously. When they don’t, we know it.We can experience anything from stiffness and dull aches to tightness and sharp pain – bottom line is we don’t feel so great … or worse, we out-and-out hurt.

The injury?  lt may be the result of a single event (improperly lifting an object, having surgery, suffering a fall) or of repetitive strain (weeks hunched over a laptop, for example), but whatever the cause, it has the potential to throw any number of your body’s systems completely out of whack. Muscle tightness, inflammation and/or pain is sure to come knocking.

Chiropractors specialize in diagnosing and treating tissue injuries involving the nerves, spine, muscles and joints. By manually applying a gentle, controlled and directed pressure into areas that have become hypomobile (restricted in their movement), a chiropractor can restore mobility and alleviate pain, nerve interference and those unfriendly “knots,” allowing tissues to heal.

Used in conjunction with Active Release Technique (ART®), chiropractic adjustments have proven to be especially beneficial in the treatment of joint restrictions, restoring range of motion, and decreasing chronic muscle and joint pain. 

The first chiropractic visit lasts between 45 minutes and 1 hour and involves an assessment, a physical examination, diagnosis and treatment plan.  Subsequent visits typically are between 15 and 20 minutes.
