Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and nervous system and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, headaches, and pain in the joints of the arms or legs.

 

Although chiropractors main method of treatment typically consists of the spinal adjustment (spinal manipulation), chiropractors also employ many adjunctive therapies and applications in order to provide the most effective and efficient relief from neuromusculoskeletal disorders. At your visit Dr. Horne may use any combination of the following therapies, depending on your condition.

Active Release Technique Cranberry Township

Active Release Technique (ART)

Active Release Technique is a movement-based manual therapy technique that addresses muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. It involves breaking up adhesions in the soft tissues by having the patient go through various motions while the doctor applies a very specific pressure to the area being treated. It has been proven to be highly effective in treating many repetitive overuse injuries such as IT band syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, low back pain, golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, shin splints and even headaches.

Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy

Chiropractic manipulation is used to release restricted joints in both the spine and the extremities. Joints often become restricted due to poor posture, improper biomechanics, and/or injury. A joint that is restricted leads to excessive motion in nearby joints. This excessive motion leads to degeneration of the joint. Therefore, restoring movement and function in all joints is a preventative procedure for future degeneration and dysfunction.

Flexion Distraction Therapy

Flexion distraction is a non-surgical technique aimed at increasing spinal motion and resolving disc bulges and disc herniations. The treatment is excellent as a safe, gentle, non-force procedure and works well to take pressure off the spinal nerves that may be injured or dysfunctional.

IASTM/Graston

Our unique technique and instruments help break up scar tissue and fascial restrictions. In time, this process will reduce or eliminate the adhered fibers, restoring range of motion and eliminating the associated pain.

Kinesiology Taping

Kinesiology Tape alleviates discomfort and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation, reducing pressure while enabling a more effective flow of blood and lymphatic fluid in and out of the target area.

Physiotherapies

At Appalachia Chiropractic & Wellness we use interferential, electrotherapy and therapeutic ultrasound to the body in order to reduce pain and inflammation while increasing mobility and circulation.

Sports Chiropractic/Performance Care

Sports Chiropractors focus on the complex relationship between the nerves, muscles and joints of the body and how this relates to overall functioning/performance of the body. At Appalachia Chiropractic & Wellness, we are specialists in treating athletic injuries with an emphasis on correcting and preventing musculoskeletal injuries and biomechanical imbalances.
