Emmerich Chiropractic Clinic provides advanced spinal correction utilizing state of the art chiropractic techniques. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before.
Chiropractic care involves the use of spinal manipulation to correct structural problems in the spine and other joints in hip, shoulder, elbow and wrist that are causing pain. Structural alignment problems can irritate soft tissue to include muscle and nerve which can produce pain. By re-aligning structural dysfunction, the soft tissue irritation is relieved.
Our office uses various treatment techniques which may vary depending upon your presenting complaint:
- Activator Methods: The Activator Method chiropractic technique is the second most widely used chiropractic technique in the world and the most popular instrument-based technique. Activator Method requires the use of the Activator adjusting instrument to relieve consistent, low force/high speed chiropractic adjustments. Our doctors are advanced proficiency rated in the use of this technique are re-certified annually.For this treatment procedure, the patient is evaluated while lying face down, and the leg lengths are evaluated. Leg flexion is used to determine subluxation of different levels of the spine while performing various muscle tests. This helps to determine when to adjust and when not to adjust. After the adjustment, post testing is used to determine if the treatment was successful and helps us deliver high quality care with excellent levels of patient satisfaction.
- Diversified Technique: This treatment technique is taught at Palmer College of Chiropractic. Range of motion and palpation (touching) of your spine are utilized to determine levels of fixation or dysfunction in the spine. A manipulative thrust is given to release this dysfunction and relieve pain.
- Cox Technique: Cox Technique is a non-surgical, doctor controlled, hands-on spinal manipulation performed with the patient laying on the Cox table. This table permits the effective administration of flexion-distraction procedure to reduce pressure on spinal nerves and return motion to fixated or locked spinal joints, thereby relieving pain.
