At McGunnigle Chiropractic, we have been sharing the benefits of chiropractic care with residents of Haddonfield, NJ for many years. Our experienced chiropractor has decades of knowledge of decreasing your pain with all-natural, non-invasive healing techniques and therapies. Our clinic offers several types of chiropractic care services to give you the best treatment possible. Read on to learn more about the techniques and therapies we incorporate into chiropractic care.
Myofascial tissues surround muscles, connecting them with other body parts. When these tissues become stressed, they become painful trigger points. Myofascial release involves our chiropractor gently stimulating trigger points to release pressure, improve circulation, and decrease pain.
The manual technique includes manipulation, massage, and mobilization. This group of methods eases stressed muscles and releases pressure in joints. While each method varies in the kind of movement they perform, manual adjustments will result in reduced pain and restored mobility.
The drop-table technique requires the use of a specialized chiropractic table. The patient is secured to the table before it is lifted, then activated to drop 1-2 inches, permitting gravity to perform natural spinal adjustments in affected areas.
Heat therapy is available in the form of moist heat packs, warm whirlpool baths, paraffin baths, and fluid therapy. While each performs somewhat different functions, they all use heat to decrease pain and increase the flow of nutrients your body needs to heal.
Cold therapy is available in the form of ice packs, ice massage, slush buckets, ice water baths, and cold towels. The idea is to narrow the blood vessels to decrease blood flow to an area. This is great for reducing swelling and muscle spasms, slow fluid moving into tissues, reduce inflammation caused by an injury, slow bleeding, and reducing the transmission of nerve pain signals rushing to the brain.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy involves using a light source pressed against the skin without tearing or cutting it. The light energy increases blood circulation and stimulates healing in the cells.
