Chiropractic is a hands-on therapy aimed at treating the root cause of musculoskeletal problems, not just the symptoms. Traditionally, chiropractors embrace the body’s innate ability to heal itself and mainly use manipulation of joints and other connective tissues to influence the nervous system into a healing state more quickly.
Chiropractic care has been shown to be an effective, non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical way to alleviate pain and discomfort associated with the lower back, neck and headaches. However, an easier way to understand what a chiropractor can help with is best phrased in this common saying around the office, “if it moves, we can help it!” In other words, as musculoskeletal experts, chiropractors can diagnose and treat anything related to bones, muscles, and especially joints, anywhere in the body. This means, sore hips, knees, feet, ankles, shoulders, and a whole host of other body parts can benefit from chiropractic treatment.
IF IT MOVES, WE CAN HELP IT
Of late, through continual research and education, many other biological structures have been shown to influence physical pain and dysfunction. While alignment of the spine and associated nerve function is important, proper functioning of the other connective tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons, etc.) surrounding the spine and the rest of the body are thought to be equally as important. Hence, our focus at Hybrid Chiropractic encompasses soft tissue techniques such as Active Release Technique, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilizations (IASTM) and corrective exercise to further influence your nervous system into a healing state.
Hybrid Chiropractic is a unique spin on traditional chiropractic where the focus is placed on being evidence-based, individualized and patient-centered. Beyond the special attention that is paid to diagnosing, treating and preventing your musculoskeletal injuries, we refer to the most up-to-date, evidence-based standards of care and listen to patients’ concerns and previous experiences when deciding how to treat.
