Adjustments are performed on the spine/pelvis and extremities to improve joint mechanics and improve the nervous system function. Improved function decreases pain, increases range of motion and improves muscle balance and tonicity.
Understanding good ergonomic positioning and movements will improve or prevent many chronic painful conditions. Dr. Clemons stresses the importance of good ergonomics when sitting, driving, doing housework or exercising
We offer an alternative medicine therapy called myofascial release that is used for treating skeletal muscle restrictions and pain. Myofascial release therapy is a hands-on treatment that utilizes gentle, sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions with motion to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation.
Patients will be taught specific and general exercises to stabilize and then strengthen injured or weak muscles that will aid in recovery and improve range of motion and posture.
The use of trigger point therapy can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries. Pressure is applied to a trigger point long enough to release and relax the muscle. This increases blood flow to the muscle to allow normalization and bring it back to a health state.
Muscle stimulation therapy, or e-Stim, is a therapeutic treatment that applies electrical stimulation to treat pain and muscle spasms. At the Chiropractic Center of Houston we use this therapy primarily to relieve pain and control inflammation.
