MUSCLE ACTIVATION TECHNIQUE

Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) is one of the most unique and powerful techniques utilized by the practitioners in our offices. The ultimate goal of the technique is to identify muscles that have disengaged due to trauma and then re-activating them to improve muscle tone, bio-mechanical patterns and ultimately function.

The technique blends eastern and western medical practices to create an immediate and long lasting improvement in muscle function. Once performed on a muscle, it should remain active and strong for months or even years to come.

 
 

ACTIVATOR TECHNIQUE

For new patients only. In this evaluation we will focus on testing the muscles of one or two areas of your body as well as a complete bio-mechanical assessment of the joints of your body. We conclude the evaluation by reactivating a single muscle from those not engaging and a full body chiropractic adjustment. After this we will sit down to create a personalized plan so you leave knowing exactly what to expect from your future visits.

DRY NEEDLING

Our most advanced technique- through a blend of both eastern and western medical techniques, we are able to “turn on” deactivated muscles. Each muscle takes 15 minutes to reactivate, and once reactivated the result should last for months or years. We add in a chiropractic adjustment with 2 or more scheduled.

 

MYOFASCIAL THERAPY

Our go-to technique for decreasing or eliminating pain, enhancing range of motion, and increasing their ability to perform. We utilize a spectrum of techniques that accommodate for all ages, sizes and preferences. (i.e. some people do not respond well to manual adjustments where their joints “crack”. We utilize techniques that eliminate the need to pop while still reaping all the benefits of a traditional adjustment.)

CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY

Dry needling is a powerful tool to repair the body’s fascial structure after injuries and subsequent scar tissue buildup. Dry needling has been found to be extremely powerful at relieving pain and tension in the body through a variety of mechanisms. During a dry needling session we will place needles in the affected area, and those needles will stay in for roughly 15 minutes.

 

KINESIOLOGY TAPING

Kinesiotaping is a technique made popular by professional and olympic athletes to enhance performance, reduce recovery time and decrease inflammation/swelling. KT taping has been found to be especially powerful at helping the lymphatic system to pull swelling out of injured tissue.
