Chiropractic Therapies for Every Ache and Pain

Chiropractic Therapies for Every Ache and Pain

Every injury and health issue is different, so we create your WellnessPlus therapy plan using the most effective and revolutionary chiropractic treatments to ensure a safe yet rapid recovery. These therapies may be prescribed alone or in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments.

Innovative pain management and support therapies include:

Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS)

happy-healthy-pain-freeAs its name implies, in EMS a mild electrical impulse is sent through a damaged muscle to contract it, increasing circulation and promoting healing. Electric muscle stimulation is also useful in strengthening undamaged muscles.

Exercise Therapy

Using many of the principles found in occupational and physical therapy, your Charleston chiropractor will customize a program of specific exercises that stretch and strengthen muscles and aid recovery from trauma, accident, or injury.

If your weight is a concern, the doctors will incorporate exercise into a weight-loss support program to help you slim down quickly and safely.

Ultrasound Therapy or Therapeutic Ultrasound

Using a wand that emits high-frequency sound waves, ultrasound therapy penetrates soft tissue, such as ligaments and tendons, and massages it to reduce inflammation and pain, increase circulation, and promote healing.

Cervical Traction

Used to heal neck pain, a cervical traction device gently holds and stretches the cervical (neck) portion of the spinal column. This repositions the vertebrae, relieves nerve pressure, and relaxes the muscles.

Moist Heat Therapy

Often used for sports injuries, heat therapy provides natural pain relief as it penetrates aching muscles, slows spasms, and reduces muscle stiffness. Heat packs increase circulation to the injured areas and promote healing. We may alternate moist heat and ice therapies for added effectiveness.

Ice Therapy (Cryotherapy)

Also commonly used for injuries such as sprains and tendonitis, ice therapy or cryotherapy shrinks swollen tissues, reducing inflammation to promote healing. Cold therapy also triggers your body to release endorphins to help you feel better.

Nutrition and Weight Loss Support

Doctors of Chiropractic are highly trained in nutrition and are uniquely qualified to design an optimal nutrition and weight-loss programs for their patients. Dr. Fantino believes that correct nutrition is the cornerstone of good health, and they will consider your lifestyle and family life when designing your program.

Pregnancy Support

The doctors and massage therapists will collaborate with you to ensure you’re exercising correctly and eating a healthy diet for you and your baby. Massage therapy will be a regular part of your routine to keep your muscles relaxed and supple to accommodate your child as he or she grows.
