Spinal manipulation is a therapeutic intervention performed on synovial joints (the most common and most movable type of joint in the body) in the spinal column. A gentle motion stretches a joint beyond its passive range of movement in order to increase its mobility. Spinal manipulation can reduce spinal nerve impingement, pain and stiffness associated with common strains, sprains, and accidents. Dr. Trollope uses a hands-only approach when using spinal manipulation. He is gentle and effective.
UPPER EXTREMITY MANIPULATION
Similar to the spinal manipulation, except the gentle motion is applied to the affected shoulder joint, acromioclavicular joint, elbow, wrist or hand joints. Motion is restored with increased mobility. Nerve impingement and pain can be relieved using this gentle low force technique.
LOWER EXTREMITY MANIPULATION
Gentle, therapeutic motion is applied to the hip, knee, ankle, or foot joints to restore normal motion. Walking can be normalized by decreasing the dysfunction of the affected lower extremity joint. Muscular pain, stiffness, and leg nerve pain (sciatica) can be reduced.
Therapeutic ultrasound as a treatment modality that has been used by therapists for years to treat soft tissue injuries. Ultrasonic waves (sound waves of a high frequency) are produced by means of mechanical vibration of the metal treatment head of the ultrasound machine. This treatment head is then moved over the surface of the skin in the region of the injury. When sound waves come into contact with air it causes a dissipation of the waves, and so a special ultrasound gel is placed on the skin to ensure maximal contact between the treatment head and the surface of the skin.
Electric muscle stimulation mimics the body’s nervous system by sending safe, low frequency electrical pulses to the affected area, causing the muscle to contract and increasing temperature and blood circulation. It is a technique that can aid the muscles in healing as well as relieve pain. When there is muscle pain due to injury, illness or lack of muscle movement, muscle-stimulation therapy can give relief and increase muscle activity.
THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE & STRETCHES
Therapeutic exercise and stretches involves the conditioning of muscles and ligaments through applied motion and extended tension. These gentle forces applied to the body can help recondition and ultimately maintain the normal function of the muscles and ligaments without the pain.
Therapeutic massage involves the manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress; and, to promote health and wellness.
Chiropractic is the largest, most regulated, and best recognized of the complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) professions. (Meeker, Haldeman; 2002; Annals of Internal Medicine)
