Services Provided by Our Chiropractor in Herndon, VA
When you have aches and pains, you may think your only option is to visit your primary care physician for pain medication, but a chiropractor takes a different approach. During chiropractic care for low back pain, neck pain, or leg, arm, shoulder, knee, or elbow pain, you receive a treatment that actually helps the problem. Our chiropractor at Absolute Chiropractic, serving Herndon, VA, and the surrounding area, offers alignments, exercise therapy, and more.
Chiropractic alignments consist of our chiropractor moving the vertebrae in your back, so they align with the discs. Ultimately, this alleviates pressure on the tissue and nerves surrounding your back. Additionally, it promotes blood flow throughout your back, so injured areas receive optimal nourishment. Our chiropractor also provides alignments for your extremities to take pressure off the joints.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrical muscle stimulation initiates muscle contractions by sending electrical impulses. We can use this treatment to help heal injuries and as a way to promote function in the muscles of athletes.
Heat and Ice Therapy
One common practice we utilize at our office is hot and cold therapy, which consists of our chiropractor using heat and cold to soothe your sore muscles and relax them. It also stimulates blood flow to the area.
If you have low back pain or another injury or just a sore muscle, we can provide exercise therapy. During this treatment, our chiropractor crafts an exercise program that targets that area. It works that area slowly in order to reduce pain and promote healing. These exercises strengthen the region and progressively advance to increase your range of motion in that particular area. We're even able to educate you on exercises you may perform at home to work that area.
Deep Muscle Release Therapy
Deep muscle releases therapy is a type of therapy that targets the muscles, joints, and bones. It reaches the deepest layer of muscle tissue using massage techniques. The therapy realigns the muscles to reduce pressure and tension throughout the region. It encourages blood flow and breaks up scar tissue in the muscles.
Lifestyle Advice and Other Treatments
You can add different chiropractic modalities to your life, but it doesn't always completely decrease your pain and discomfort. You can target the problem from different angles by making changes to the way you live, including your diet and routine. Our chiropractor can educate you on ways to improve your health, whether that means changing how you sit while you work or helping you lose weight in a healthy way. We even offer CBD oil to assist with your pain.
