Dr. Hams employs a wide range of proven techniques for each individual case. Below, you’ll find a brief explanation of the popular chiropractic techniques we use at our practice.
The most commonly used adjustment technique by chiropractors. Diversified is described as a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust. It’s considered the most common chiropractic manipulative technique and is distinguished from other techniques in that its purpose is to rebuild proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction.
A gentle, non-force adjusting procedure that works with the body's natural ability for proper healing of disc and joint related injuries. Flexion – Distraction requires a specific table for effective use of the technique. The table offers spinal traction (lengthening) with succeeding flexion movements of the lumbar spine. This approach is a very safe, effective, and conventional for disc injuries, low back and leg pain symptoms, and an alternative to look at if disc surgery has been recommended.
The primary purpose of Trigger Point Therapy is to reduce the pain that results from hypersensitive muscles. Trigger points are identified by gently pressing on the surface of the skin, sensing the texture of the underlying muscle.
A trigger point is like a knot the size of a pea, buried deep in the muscle tissue. It is made up of lactic acid, a normal byproduct of muscular activity, which sometimes gets trapped in the muscle from physical, chemical or emotional stress.
A therapeutic method for diagnosing and treating disorders of the skeletal muscles and related connective tissue. The method employs a collection of convex-shaped handheld stainless steel instruments, which the chiropractor rubs against the patient, using very specific methods, to help break down the scar tissue and promote a healing environment. The benefit of the Graston Technique is not only a detection of restrictions or adhesions, but also in the amount of improvement that takes place in a short amount of time.
Our office employs other physical therapy modalities including ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation.
