At Vitality Chiropractic, we provide a variety of treatments to help you recover from your accident. The most common treatments are:
Spinal alignments are a technique we use to realign your spine. By adjusting the vertebrae out of place, we can take pressure off your nerves and muscles and help your body recover. Aligning your spine is the core of chiropractic treatments and can help provide wellness even after recovering from your accident.
At Vitality Chiropractic, we use vibration therapy and Graston technique to help with muscular tension. Treating muscle tension can reduce pain, increase range of motion, and speed up the recovery time.
This technique utilizes a mechanical traction table that provides negative pressure to your spine to take the pressure off your discs and vertebrae. Intersegmental traction reduces pain and tension, improves circulation, improves range of motion, and helps get your discs and vertebrae back into place.
Heat therapy & Ultrasound
We utilized moist heating pads and ultrasound therapy to reduce inflammation, improve circulation and reduce muscle tension.
This type of therapy helps with reducing muscle pain and
spasms at the same time that it keeps muscles active to prevent atrophy after an injury.
