ACTIV

Chiropractic Adjustments

At Sidney Chiropractic Center we do activator adjusting as well as traditional manipulation. Chiropractic adjustments "adjust" misaligned vertebra into their rightful positions to relieve nerve irritations bought on by the misalignment. Such manipulations are called "adjustments" and are the most basic method of chiropractic treatment.

Once the vertebrae are realigned and the associated derangements corrected, the nerves can begin to function normally again and the body's own healing mechanism can take over.

Intersegmental Mobilization Therapy

Sidney Chiropractic Center features intersegmental traction therapy which flexes and bends the spine - to loosen fixated spinal joints. Intersegmental traction therapy provides gentle mobilization and also flexion-traction of individual spinal segments. It is designed to provide relief from muscle pain, spasm, and many spinal disk problems. The process focuses on the small and intrinsic muscles between the vertebras which often cause fixations of the spinal joints.

With this treatment the patient lies on a comfortable table while a series of padded rollers gently provide a rhythmic stretching motion of each spinal segment. This treatment assists in restoring mobility, and aids a process known as disk imbibation.

The spinal disk imbibation helps to "feed" and restore normal motion where spinal disk fixation has been present. Many normal processess in the body are inhibited by spinal fixations. Therefore, re-establishing motion to the fixated segments helps restore health and normal function to the spine. By treating the small intrinsic muscles, intersegmental traction may also be helpful in re-establishing normal curves of the spinal column - which can be adversely affected by injury, or long standing biomechanical problems.

Diathermy

Diathermy

Shortwave diathermy emits safe, comfortable heat while generating an electromagnetic field which brings soothing relief to patients suffering from back pain, spasm, bursitis, arthritis, and other musculoskeletal conditions.

Diathermy also acts as a sedative to irritated nerves and induces relaxation and a freer movement of muscles and ligaments. In addition to its healing benefits, diathermy also helps make movement and stretching easier and less painful.

For instance, with an injured or inflamed joint such as sprained knee, hip, back, or frozen shoulder, the treatment objectives are to relieve pain, prevent stiffness, and restore the restricted movement. Diathermy is one of the most effective means for accomplishing these aims because the deep heat relieves the pain, relaxes the muscles fibers, and permits easier movement.

Diathermy also has a soothing and relaxing effect on the type of muscle spasms and contractures often seen in low back pain, rheumatoid arthiritis, and some spinal disc problems. This heat, going deep into the structures, can often bring about complete relief that lasts for hours and sometimes for days and weeks at a time. Spastic conditions of the stomach, gall bladder, and intestines also often respond well to the application of diathermy.
