Techniques and Methods used:
Diversified Technique Adjustment, also known as a Manual Manipulation. Diversified is one of the most common type of chiropractic treatments, employing a high velocity low-amplitude thrust to put motion back into the joints. This will likely be Dr. Well’s main technique for treatment when working with you.
Instrument Assisted Adjustment, also known as the 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, 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), also 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.
Electrical Stimulation (E-Stim) and Ultrasound Therapy, which can be used in addition to chiropractic adjustments to help pain management, swelling and relax tense or spasming muscles. Electrical stimulation, commonly referred to as “E-Stim,” applies an electric current to through the placement of electrodes to specific muscles to decrease pain, swelling, muscle atrophy and spasms to help increase the range of motion. Ultrasound therapy utilizes high frequency sound waves to vibrate the surrounding tissue to increase blood flow and stimulate healing. While Dr. Wells does not use this E-Stim or Ultrasound therapy for every visit, in acute cases, adding one of these methods can be a beneficial tool as a part of your recovery or treatment plan.
