One of the most used techniques our doctors use is manual adjusting. This is the hands on type of adjusting most people see or know of. The adjustment itself consists of Dr. Henke applying controlled, quick pressure to joints, pushing them just beyond their restricted range of motion. “Popping” is normal during an adjustment. No, it isn’t your bones! You’re hearing the release of gas pressure that has built up in your joints, which has been causing your discomfort.
With having an x-ray machine in office, taking x-rays is quick and simple. This will tremendously help our doctors in figuring out what treatment is best for you. It will also determine if there are any underlying issues that you or the doctor might not be aware of such as osteoperosis, degeneration, arthritis, scoliosis, disc injuries and more.
The ArthroStim® Instrument delivers true high-velocity, short-stroke thrusts at 12 cycles a second. This rapidity supersaturates the target area with specific adjustive energy (forces). The energy continues to ripple through the joint to surrounding fringe tissues. This releases secondary trigger points and sites of muscular spasm, providing the relief and corrections that doctors want. Patients notice a positive difference with the first treatment. With the Arthrostim, there is no twisting, turning or “cracking” of joints which some patients prefer and feel more comfortable with.
Stretching is something we all want to do and know it is good for us, yet somehow we never manage to get around to it. Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a technique that helps people maximize the effectiveness of stretching without causing the sort of discomfort that keeps a lot of us away from it. Whether you're an exercise enthusiast or a competitive athlete, Active Isolated Stretching can help your training and recovery become more efficient and more fun.
The Cox table uses decompression and flexion as the patients lower body is stretched and lowered repetitively. This type of treatment is ideal for low back pain, bulging disks, nerve pain and much more. The Cox® Table naturally allows the doctor’s hands to feel the exact tissue tension, as well as sense the patient’s response to decompression treatment. This hands on approach allows the chiropractor to respond immediately to the patients needs.
Believe it or not our doctors also make time to treat your furry friends! Dr. Henke has treated dogs, cats and even horses. Bring your pup in today to get the adjustment they need!
