Tangelo’s Common Chiropractic Services
Body injuries and irregularities come in many shapes and sizes. Sometimes a car accident is to blame; sometimes, it’s a fall, sometimes you hurt yourself working out. However, more often, it’s not a violent or aggressive action that causes us pain. It’s the little repetitive movements or the bad posture or the daily computer work that sneaks up on us.
We’re continuously using our muscles, joints, and ligaments, so when we habitually misuse them, they are bound to reach out to us for help. The help is asked for by producing pain or discomfort, which tells us something is wrong. It’s critical to acknowledge the ailment, so it doesn’t spread and worsen.
In many cases, if you don’t properly treat the cause of your pain, more pressure and stress is applied to other areas of the body to compensate for those that are lacking. When this happens, the unharmed areas are compromised because they aren’t made to support the extra load and are now at risk of harm themselves.
Our chiropractic care teams have several resources to help manage your pain, however you got it and whatever the severity, before it takes hold of your life. And if it already has taken hold of your life, we have you covered, too. We will get your body parts working together, talking to each other, and finding balance.
These spinal manipulations take only a small amount of pressure to the joint that’s causing discomfort through a targeted quick, controlled manual thrust, often offering the patient immediate relief from pain and restoring mobility. Adjustments can be applied to the back, neck, shoulders, and other parts of the body, such as hands and ankles.
Using tools designed to aid in chiropractic care, these instruments break down scar tissue with much more immediacy and intention than hands alone. We will work through the tissues in order to restore soft tissue mobilization and help your body regain its proper function.
A non-invasive solution designed to locate and resolve soft tissue problems, it will effectively break down scar tissue that’s formed in the muscles and tissues, causing pain and loss of range of motion, restoring proper function.
Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)
This test assesses movement patterns in patients experiencing musculoskeletal pain based on seven full-body movements to determine the best treatment options.
This is a specialty tape that is applied to hurting or aching muscles. It will help lift the skin, providing better blood flow, carrying oxygen to the muscles. This support will also ensure the muscles have time to rest and rebuild strength.
Handheld cups are placed on the skin and create suction; this technique eases tension and pain by lifting the skin and tissues and increasing blood flow through the body and to the muscles and areas that need it.
We will design exercises and stretches specific to your wellness goals and abilities, performing them with us in our office and on your own at your home. We often include personalized emails with videos created by our doctors for your convenience. We find that rehabilitation therapy and chiropractic care work well together and provide a quicker, safer recovery.
In addition to these chiropractic solutions and rehabilitation therapies, our chiropractic team will go over other body-care basics for you to utilize on a daily basis, such as:
- Proper exercising modifications to support your body’s capabilities
- Appropriate sleeping positions
- Benefiting stretches
- Mobility and flexibility exercises
