We at Rowland Chiropractic Clinic use a special gentle "soft touch" technique we call "Chiropractic without the Crunch". We use our fingers and thumbs to adjust in a specific spot, in a specific direction, with the minimal amount of force needed. This produces, we've found, the same or superior results to the usual much more forceful and often painful "crunching" adjustments.
At Rowland Chiropractic Clinic, we know that often chiropractic adjustments are often only half the solution. Knots and adhesions in the body's soft tissues - muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia are their own problem. Sometimes these result from joint misalignments. Sometimes they actually cause the misalignment. Sometimes they will go away after adjustments but many times they won't. They'll just stay there and cause pain.
I've nicknamed some of the spots "God spots" because patients tend to say "My God, that's sore", when I touch them.
To get rid of them use we a special massager called the Vibracussor designed especially for this work. We may also work with our fingers, use a technique called Myofascial Release, or use other special tools.
This has two results - it makes adjustment easier and more effective, and solves problems that otherwise would never go away.
We at Rowland Chiropractic Clinic often provide exercises and stretches to aid in healing.
Excess body weight can affect the body and health in many ways. Those excess pounds are hard on the low back, hips, knees and feet. They can cause joints to age and fail prematurely, Losing weight can help reduce pain. Pluse being overweight can put the body into harmful metabolic states and lead to serious diseases such as diabetes.
