We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Daniel Rubin has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light to stimulate a process called photobiomodulation (PBM). During PBM, photons enter the tissue and interact with the cytochrome c complex within mitochondria. This interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism, decrease in pain, reduction in muscle spasm, and improved microcirculation to injured tissue. This treatment is FDA cleared and provides patients a non-invasive, non-pharmacological alternative for pain relief.
Spinal Decompression is a method of treatment used to apply a distraction force to relieve disc compression. Disc Compression often results in back pain, sciatica, or numbness and tingling in the arms. By allowing these discs to “Decompress,” we allow them to breathe again, and therefore relieve the symptoms associated with back and neck pain.
IASTM - Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation
IASTM is a technique used to treat ligaments, tendons and myofascial injuries. At North Port Chiropractic, we use Functional Soft Tissue (Featuring FAKTR) as an evaluation and treatment of soft tissue dysfunction. This technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to treat soft tissue restrictions or adhesions. FAKTR can be used to treat common hamstring strains, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, and ankle sprains.
Myofascial Release is used to lengthen, increase mobility, and restore function to the muscles and fascia.
Functional tape, such as Kinesio Tape, Rock Tape, or KT Tape, are used for a few different reasons. The first reason is to decrease pain while not limiting range of motion. Functional tape, like Kinesio Tape, is also used to help lift the skin and guide inflammation back to the heart and out of an injured area. At the subconscious level, Kinesio tape can help overactive muscles calm down and can help inactive muscle increase their activity. This function is extremely helpful in treating patients with repetitive strain and stress injuries and advanced compensation patterns. Lastly, when functional tape pulls, it helps an individual consciously recognize that they are having poor posture so that they can correct their position.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
