The OPC Chiropractic Care Program is designed to resolve the injury of concern in an industry-leading time frame while preventing the return of symptoms.
Our primary goal is to determine why this painful condition developed in the first place. Following a comprehensive neurologic and orthopedic examination, OPC doctors employ a variety of modalities to make a dynamic change in your case in the shortest amount of time possible.
Neuro Muscular Electric Stimulation (NMES)
NMES is a modality used in identifying and treating the neurologic origin of symptoms rather than the symptoms alone. NMES sends an electrical impulse to nerves, causing a muscle to contract. NMES is specifically used to increase strength and range of motion. It is often used to re-train or re-educate a muscle after sustaining an injury or disuse
Laser therapy is a form of non-invasive therapy using both red and infrared light. Laser therapy has extensive research showing its effectiveness for increasing tissue repair, increasing blood flow, increasing production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and reducing inflammation.
Motion guidance is a visual bio-feedback tool to encourage perfect sensorimotor integration. Motion guidance is especially useful when trying to re-educate a movement pattern to break old habit cycles.
Chiropractic manipulations are used to restore proper range of motion to joints which have become restricted by their surrounding tissues due to a traumatic event, disuse or a repetitive movement.
Manual soft tissue mobilization is a technique aimed at relieving tissue tension through the removal of scar tissue/ adhesions and increasing blood supply to the area involved. Scar tissue and adhesions are commonly seen following an injury or repetitive use of an area.
