Chiropractic Adjustments

The purpose of a Chiropractic Adjustment is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as poor spinal posture for an extended period of time.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a manipulative treatment that attempts to release tension in the fascia due to trauma, posture, or inflammation. Connective tissues called fascia surround the muscles, bones, nerves, and organs of the body. Points of restriction in the fascia can place a great deal of pressure on nerves and muscles causing chronic pain.

Sports Physical

In the sports medicine field, the sports physical exam is known as a pre-participation physical examination (PPE). The exam helps determine whether it’s safe for you to participate in a certain sport. At Aranda Chiropractic & Sports Medicine Inc. we not only follow the requirements of the school but also include a concussion baseline test.

Kinesiology Taping

Kinesiology taping helps reduce pain, decrease swelling and inflammation, delays fatigue, and distributes physical stress while allowing free movement. Whether you are recovering from an acute or chronic musculoskeletal injury, Kinesiology tape works great because it works with the body allowing full range of motion.

Cupping

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which cups are placed on your skin for a few minutes to create a vacuum, so the blood is drawn to the surface of the skin in specific parts of the body that need healing. Cupping can help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Rehabilitation Exercises

Rehabilitation is the process to regain full function following injury and involves restoring strength, flexibility, endurance and power. It is achieved through various exercises. The aim of a rehabilitation program is to regain pre-injury levels. A full rehabilitation and strengthening program is essential to ensure full recovery and in order to prevent re-injuries.
