Build A Stronger, Healthier Body.
A chiropractic adjustment is given to stiff spinal joints in order to restore normal motion. The adjustment also gives important input to the nervous system to correct muscle tightness or weakness and relieve nerve inflammation. This results in reduced pain and improved stability and range of motion.
At Tiferet Chiropractic we use a variety of adjusting methods - including Diversified technique (manual), gentle low-force techniques, and the Activator instrument - to improve motion in the joints. Each person is unique and we use the method most appropriate for your comfort level and situation.
Chiropractic adjustments work with the muscles and other tissues surrounding a stiff joint and gently guide them to release in the proper direction. By working with the body, instead of fighting against it, the treatment is comfortable for the patient and the results are longer lasting.
Muscle weakness is caused by several factors including poor posture, inactivity, joint stiffness, family genetics, past injuries, and nerve inflammation. Strengthening weak muscles allows tight muscles to finally, truly relax.
The first step in correcting muscle weakness is to reduce the inflammation in the nerve that controls the weak muscle. We do this by gently massaging the nerve and by removing joint stiffness along the path that the nerve travels. Next we wake up the muscle by deeply massaging its starting and ending points. Finally, we teach you special exercises to strengthen the weak muscle.
Our unique combination of chiropractic adjustments, deep tissue work, muscle strengthening and therapeutic exercise is exactly what you need to quickly relieve your pain.
Therapeutic exercises have been proven to increase the effectiveness of treatment and reduce the risk of future problems. They are necessary to maintain the corrections we create during each treatment session.
We teach you simple exercises that you will practice at home. They are designed specifically for your unique needs. The goal of the home exercise program is to improve muscle strength and restore stability and proper alignment to your body - all of which reduce the likelihood of injury and further degeneration.
Deep tissue massage is an integral part of the treatment process. When muscles have been tight for a long time, several dysfunctional processes take place. First of all, tight muscles constrict the blood vessels that support the muscle - restricting waste removal. As waste products build up, the muscles become sore and knots or trigger points form. Secondly, adhesions (scar tissue) form between the fibers of tight muscles. No matter how much a muscle is stretched, it won't be able to heal and function normally until the adhesions are removed.
We use deep tissue techniques including stripping, petrissage and cross-friction as well as a variety of special tools to release muscular adhesions and trigger points.
