Research has shown that chiropractic care and adjustments are effective in treating and preventing disc degeneration and muscle fatigue which plagues many truck drivers.
Full Spine & Extremity Adjusting
The adjustment is a specific manual thrust applied to dysfunctional joints which corrects structural disturbances of the body's framework resulting in an alleviation of pain and increased range of motion. The adjustment also removes nerve interference, maximizing the communication between the brain and the tissues allowing the body to function at its optimum level of health.
Intersegmental Traction Table
Intersegmental traction is where the patient lies on a specialized table and massaging rollers travel slowly up and down the spine opening up the joints of the spine. This increases mobility of the spine, stretches the spinal joints, and creates a pumping action of the discs pumping nutrients into the disc and waste products out of the discs.
EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) with Heat
EMS with heat uses electrical impulses to relax muscle spasms and increase blood flow. Relaxing muscle spasms decreases pain and allows for a more successful adjustment. Increased blood flow increases nutrients and oxygen, as well as, removes waste products improving the health of spinal structures and decreasing spinal degeneration.
