Chiropractic Treatment

The doctor at Hobart Family Chiropractic uses highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach used is based on the doctor’s judgment and years of experience.


The primary adjusting techniques used include:

 

Diversified
This technique is the most commonly used of all chiropractic techniques. The doctor administers a specific manual thrust to restore motion in an affected joint.

 

Activator Methods
With this method, the adjusting forces being delivered is generated with the small instrument that delivers a lighter, but quicker, thrust than can be delivered by hand. Activator can be used as a primary treatment protocol for some patients or a selective method for patients who may not desire manual manipulation or where manual manipulation may be contraindicated.

 

Webster Technique
Through, the I.C.P.A., Dr. Marie-Andrée Gélinas, D.C obtained her Webster Technique Proficiency Certification. The Webster Technique helps pregnant mothers with breech babies and ensures to facilitate easier, safer deliveries for both mother and baby.

 

The ICPA currently offers the only courses to certify chiropractors in the proper performance of it.

 

Thompson Drop Technique

This chiropractic method uses a special table with several segments called drop pieces. These segments are propped up a fraction of an inch so that when the thrust is delivered, the table drops slightly, assisting the thrust while minimizing the force used for the adjustment.

Muscle Stimulation Therapy
Muscle Stimulation Therapy is used for pain relief or to reduce inflammation, some for muscle spasm, and in some cases, cause muscles to contract in order to reduce muscle atrophy. Muscle Stimulation Therapy delivers a painless electrical current through the patient’s skin to specific nerves. The current produces mild heat that works to relieve stiffness and pain and helps to improve range of motion. It may be used to control acute pain and chronic pain. This type of therapy uses light electrical pulses that are transmitted to specific areas of the body through electrodes placed on the skin.

Ultrasound Therapy
Ultrasound therapy is used to speed up of the healing process, reduce inflammation and for pain relief from the increase in blood flow in the treated area. Ultrasound therapy is used by stimulating the tissue beneath the skin's surface using very high frequency sound waves. Ultrasound is applied using an applicator that is in direct contact with the patient's skin. Gel is used on all surfaces of the head to reduce friction and assist transmission of the ultrasonic waves.
