Chiropractic Adjustment and Joint Manipulations
Adjustment is the primary chiropractic treatment for chiropractors. Joint manipulation is a precise and effective professional act for many conditions. In addition, the chiropractic adjustment can be performed on a particular segment of the spine or other joints in the body. In addition, chiropractors are the leaders in the field of spinal manipulation in Quebec.
Active Release Techniques (A.R.T.) and Graston Techniques
Active Release and Graston are techniques of myofascial therapy. Thus, they are aimed at the treatment of disorders affecting the muscles, tendons, fascia and on nerve compressions. They are intended to restore the muscle to its full potential by eliminating adhesions that limit its proper functioning.
Our chiropractic clinic in Hull has the facilities to relieve the pain associated with herniated discs and osteoarthritis. In fact, the manually controlled flexion-distraction table relieves the pressure on the intervertebral disc to be relieved and / or passive stretching of the muscles in spasm.
Activator / Impulse Technique
The chiropractors at Alinea Chiropractic clinics also use tools that offer a cavitation-free (cracking) fit, called Activator and Impulse. Thus, the elderly with osteoporosis, young children and for people who are uncomfortable with crunches, the Activator and Impulse allow appropriate chiropractic treatment.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is an assessment method that allows certified health professionals to improve their basic exams. AK is a system using functional assessment tools such as posture, gait analysis, range of motion, static, dynamic palpation and muscle testing. The latter serves as a functional neurological assessment. Finally, these tests are used in conjunction with standard examination methods such as history, physical examination, laboratory tests and diagnostic imaging to arrive at a unique clinical impression of the physiological status of each patient.
Kinesiotaping and Sports Taping
Kinesiotaping is a technique used to treat different muscle, tendon, ligament and nerve conditions. Thus, this particular type of taping has very effective therapeutic properties which allow the treatment to be supplemented as needed. Finally, injuries such as tendonitis, bursitis, epicondylitis and myofascial syndromes respond very well to the use of kinesiotaping.
