Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy

Saige is a Wellness Chiropractic Practice

Chiropractic Therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free approach to treating musculoskeletal issues, including, but not limited to, joint pain, back pain, headaches, wrist pain and carpal tunnel syndrome. Focusing on the spine, but also working with joints and muscles, chiropractic therapy aims to correct the body’s alignment to promote general well-being, pain reduction, improved mobility and structural function.

Wellness chiropractic goes a step further by addressing all aspects of a person’s health, with treatment that can include recommendations for exercise, nutrition, mindfulness, and massage therapy. At Saige Chiropractic, we apply the principle of wellness to our work with people from all walks of life, and all ages (including children and adolescents).

Treatments, Therapies, Methods & Tools

The Following is a List of Some of the Techniques We Use to Help Our Patients

Diversified Technique

The Diversified Technique is the most widely used chiropractic technique, with an estimated 96% of all chiropractors using it with 70 % of patients. The method has three primary purposes: restoring the spine’s alignment, repairing joint disfunction, and promoting mobility and movement. The Diversified Technique increases range of motion and realigns misplaced joints and bones using precise hands-on thrusts.

Percussor Therapy

Percussor therapy is an effective method to help muscle, tendon and ligament problems. It addresses pain by delivering waves of percussive impulses into the muscles, joints and fascia without the need for pressure. The waves, release fascial obstructions and stimulate blood flow into the targeted area to reduce spasming and promote healing.

Athrostim Adjusting

We also use an instrument called Arthrostim instrument. This is another gentle force instrument that delivers targeted adjustments that stimulate the neural pathways in problem areas. The low impact nature of these adjustments makes them useful for people who have recently been in accidents and are dealing with acute pain. It is also a useful approach for pregnant women, children, the elderly, and people suffering from bone density conditions including osteoporosis.

Drop Table

Drop table technique is a gentle chiropractic method often used to treat lower back, mid-back and neck pain without twisting or forceful thrusting. The chiropractor uses a special table with sections that can be dropped to allow gravity help to complete an adjustment that is initiated with gentle force.

Graston Technique

The Graston Technique, otherwise known as IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation) is a therapy in which a practitioner runs smooth metal tools across the skin and muscles to stimulate the fascia and trigger blood flow to affected areas. The process helps break up scar tissue and heals soft tissue conditions including carpal tunnel syndrome and plantar fasciitis.

Flexion Distraction

A common technique used to treat symptomatic disc injuries often associated with back and neck pain is Flexion Distraction. This technique uses a unique table that distracts and flexes the spine with gentle, rhythmic movements. This gentle treatment is an excellent choice for patients who have suffered a recent injury or those who may be sensitive to other types of adjustments.
