Spinal Manipulation

Spinal manipulation involves the use of high-velocity low amplitude thrusts to the spine in order to reduce joint restrictions, increase blood flow, reset muscle spindles and reduce pain. Manipulations can be used to treat a variety of spinal conditions including the following: facet dyfunctions, neck sprain/strains and low back pain to name a few. The manipulation techniques that we utilize combines coupling levers to reduce torque and thus makes the treatment more comfortable to the patients.

“I have been to a lot of physical therapy clinics all over the world, but I have never met anyone like you. Your approach is unique and you have really helped my neck and shoulder pain. I really appreciate you”

Neck pain can occur for numerous reasons and as a result of a number of problems originating in the spine. Neck pain can cause one to have numbness, tingling, burning and aching pain localized in the neck and or radiating down to the shoulder blade as well as down ones arm(s). It can also cause one to develop weakness in the arm and hand which could lead to limited function. These problems can be treated with cervical manipulations, manual and mechanical traction, nerve glides, postural re-education and modalities such as ice, and electrical stimulation when indicated. Dry needling has also been proven to be beneficial with reducing pain associated with the neck related dysfunctions.
