At Full Strength Spine and Health we utilize various techniques in order to help our patients reach their ultimate goals.
Chiropractic manipulative treatments are utilized to treat neuromusculoskeletal issues in the spine and extremities. Research shows that a joint will become restricted and lose its full range of motion; however the body will still be able to function at normal performance levels. This is because the range of motion lost at the restricted joint is made up for by excessive range of motion at the joints usually above and below the restricted segment. Over time, those over utilized joints will cause further pain and potential degeneration. Gentle, precise, chiropractic manipulation, alongside our other treatment, enhances our patient’s ability to get out of pain quicker and return to a higher level of performance.
A specifically designed tape that stretches, contracts, and conforms with movements of the body. Fascial Movement Taping is more specifically used for joint, muscle, tendon, and ligament support, "turning down the volume" of pain, decreasing inflammation, delaying fatigue, normalizing muscle tone, and spreading physical stress.

Full Strength Spine and Health Center emphasizes rehabilitative principles and techniques that are tailored specifically to each patient. A patient's treatment is not over when their pain is at minimal levels or even gone. A functional movement assessment will tell the doctor where the weak link in the musculoskeletal chain is which could be the underlying factor causing their pain and symptoms. Whether you are an athlete who is actively exercising or a businessperson looking to complete tasks of everyday living pain free, rehabilitation will help you reach your goals.
At Full Strength Spine and Health Center we understand that when a patient originally comes into our office they are usually in some type of pain. The patient may not consider this pain to be a big deal, but any degree of pain in your body is not normal. The purpose of utilizing passive modalities in our clinic is to enhance the healing process by decreasing inflammation to the injured site and helping to regenerate injured tissues. Some of the modalities utilized in our clinic are Interferrential Current / Electrical Stimulation, Ultrasound, Hotpacks, and Ice Therapy.
Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy®(MDT) also known as the McKenzie Method is a treatment technique backed by over 50 years of proven research utilized by Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, and Physiotherapists around the world. Musculoskeletal pain is mechanical in nature, meaning it is dependent upon movements and positions with respect to the human body. An MDT assessment will tell the patient what movements and positions will increase their pain and make them worse, as well as what movements and exercises will decrease their symptoms and begin the rehabilitative process. MDT distinguishes between a joint out of its normal resting position, a damaged-shortened soft tissue around the joint, and symptoms simply due to poor posture. What makes MDT a powerful tool is that it provides the patients with home exercises to do routinely throughout the day to enhance their recovery.
Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites--commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and digestive system. By stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture can help to resolve pain, and improve sleep, digestive function, and sense of well-being. Hundreds of clinical studies on the benefits of acupuncture show that it successfully treats conditions ranging from musculoskeletal problems (back pain, neck pain, and others) to nausea, migraine headache, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and infertility.
Massage therapy is more than a relaxing day at the spa. It has the ability to offer a natural treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that works complimentary with our other treatments. The benefits of massage therapy include increasing blood circulation, reduction in swelling locally, and the release of hypertonic muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery.
At Full Strength Spine and Health Center our practitioners can offer nutritional education and counseling in conjunction with passive care. Whether it be a total diet overhaul, management of a diagnosed health condition, or tips to help with daily food choices, nutrition plays a huge rule in the overall healing process.

Myofascial Release Technique
This is a type of manual therapy that involves a physician utilizing their hands as opposed to a device or machine. At Full Strength Spine and Health Center we utilize a myofascial release technique that focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. Many patients seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing pain from previous injuries. Treatments may focus on muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, or peripheral nerve entrapments.

This procedure is performed using a special treatment table that allows the physician to gently stretch and bend the back in various directions. It typically consists of a series of repetitive slow movements with no sudden or quick motions. The table moves in a smooth rhythmic fashion as the practitioner moves his/her hands into different positions, allowing the spine to go through several different ranges of motion. The purpose of this therapy is to decompress the disc by applying a gentle stretch to the lower spine. The procedure is often used for people with disc problems but can also be utilized to gently mobilize joints with a specific disc issue.
Orthotics are used in order to help give back the support that many of our feet have lost. People's feet are designed to help absorb all the forces generated by the human body. They help with regular activities of daily living, such as walking and running, to more intense actions such as exercise and playing sports. And without proper support, your feet will become overwhelmed by the constant stresses placed upon them. This can lead to the breakdown of the arches in your feet and furthermore pain. Both an orthotic screening and fitting can be scheduled at Full Strength Spine and Health Center.
