Details on the Treatments we use....
Many chiropractors, osteopaths and physical therapists utilize manipulation and mobilization techniques to improve joint movement, reduce pain and restore muscle tone.
Mobilization employs gentle pressure or a shallow thrust to restore optimal motion.
Manipulation is sometimes accompanied by a pop or cracking noise, which results from the joint's release of gases.
Following treatment it is common to experience less pain and muscle tension and a greater range of motion. Dr. VanWagenen utilizes mobilization and manipulation procedures only when necessary and in conjunction with the patient’s approval.
The Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and fascial restrictions that effect normal function.
The Technique utilizes six specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
Active Release Techniques (ART)
Active Release Techniques is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
An enormous amount of soft tissue conditions can be resolved quickly and often permanently with ART. Many cumulative trauma injuries occurring on the athletic field or in the workplace can be resolved using the 500 protocols unique to ART.
A typical visit is part diagnosis (identifying where the adhesion or soft-tissue lesion is) and treatment (freeing the adhesion or nerve entrapment). This type of therapy has become the “gold standard” for treating injuries in the athletic community and for workplace injuries.
Physical modalities such as Electrical Muscle Stimulation, Russian Stimulation, Interferential Current and Ultrasound are passive treatments used to control pain, reduce inflammation and increase circulation.
