At Back to Health Family Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Spring Hill office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Jeremy Johnson has years of training and experience in spinal adjustments using multiple techniques, to find just the right fit for each patient. Here are the main techniques used in practice:
Diversified - After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up spinal joints. The energy delivered through the thrust might produce a slight "popping" sound from the shifting of gas and fluids in the joint. Virtually all joints of the body can be adjusted to help restore proper range of motion.
Thompson - Thompson Terminal Point technique is a way of adjusting the entire spine. Dr. Johnson uses a protocol of comparing leg lengths while the patient turns their head to help determine whether the vertical subluxation complex was in the upper, middle, or lower back.
Activator - This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. Because it is many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, the body rarely tightens to resist, making adjustments comfortable and effective. It is also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees, and other joints of the body.
Toggle Recoil - While lying on your side, Dr. Johnson will use his hands to deliver a quick contact to the upper bones of your spine. Your body will do the rest. The wisdom of your body uses this energy to "reset" the relationship between the spinal segments and your head.
Trigger Point Therapy - By applying direct pressure or stretching of the affected muscle, we can reduce muscle spasms and flush out pooled blood and accumulated toxins.
Extremity Adjusting - This is the adjusting of the shoulders, elbows, hands, hips, ribs, knees, feet, or any joint. All joints can exhibit the same kind of pain, local muscle hypertonicity, and swelling that is seen in the spine. This can be performed with the hands or using an instrument.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
