How Treatment Works
Islip Chiropractic treats patients with a customized neuromuscular re-education program that includes treatment on various machines combined with exercises.
We begin by conducting a comprehensive, physical assessment to gather information about the function of the entire spine.
Ongoing assessments are conducted at regular intervals to monitor progress and refine the treatment plan.
Spine Warm-up (Mix)
Before any chiropractic adjustments, the patient should warm up their spine using the following techniques.
The chair sits upon a ball-and-socket joint and flexes in every direction to put the spine through a full range of motion.
Standing Cervical Traction:
This technique is used actively by the patient to achieve gentle, repetitive spinal traction, scientifically proven to relax the ligaments and soft tissues of the spine.
Eckard Flexion Table:
A special motorized table with belts that pulls the scoliotic curves out of the spine, and re-structures the ligaments after they have been relaxed.
Adjusting The Spine (Fix)
Adjusting instruments enhance the effectiveness of treatment while also reducing the amount of force required to correct the spine.
All adjustments are guided by the information obtained from the patient’s assessments.
Follow up examinations are used to confirm the correction of the curve.
Lock In Spinal Corrections (Set)
After the adjustment is completed, the spine is “set” in its corrected position.
This involves spinal weighting protocols, neuromuscular re-education and whole body vibration.
A custom designed scoliosis exercise and stretching program is also conducted at home two to three times daily.
