Understand the different options for chiropractic treatment from Dr. Corey Wells, at the topeka based chiropractic office, Well Balanced Chiropractic.
Diversified is one of the most common types of chiropractic treatment, employing a high velocity low-amplitude thrust to put motion back into the joints. This is Dr. Wells' main technique for treatment when working with you.
Instrument Assisted Adjustment
(commonly known as Activator Technique) Instrument Assisted adjustment uses a handheld chiropractic tool as an alternative to manual adjustments. Dr. Wells likes to use this technique for the young, elderly, or if you prefer a more delicate method of treatment. It is a great alternative to those that don’t prefer manual manipulation.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM)
(commonly known as Graston Technique) Another instrument assisted technique, Dr. Wells uses a handheld implement to assist in breaking down scar tissue and restrictions in soft tissues like muscles, ligaments, tendons, and more. IASTM is a great compliment to the manual and instrument assisted adjustments Dr. Wells uses, to help release additional tension and restriction.
