PATIENT FORMS —
SERVICES WE OFFER —
A chiropractic adjustment is the minor movement of the vertebrae in the spine.
The objective of this movement is to restore proper joint mobility to the spine when there is joint dysfunction caused by normal daily activity or trauma such as a car accident.
When the spine is not functioning properly, it has an overall systemic effect on the muscular and nervous systems. When there is spinal dysfunction we cannot perform at an optimal level.
In order to perform an adjustment, the chiropractor utilizes the hands or an instrument to restore proper motion at the joint level. This happens with a quick movement and is often done without discomfort. You may hear a noise, referred to as joint cavitation, that sounds like you are cracking your knuckles. It is the release of gasses such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.
Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is functioning properly, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed.
NOW OFFERING DRY NEEDLING
Dr. Kevin Pighetti is now certified in Dry Needling
Do you have pain that isn’t going away? Do you have a problem that isn’t healing as fast as you would like? Have you had a recent injury? Dry needling may be what you need!
What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is a modality that physically disrupts the tension and pressure within the tissues that are involved in the patient’s main complaint. A solid filament needle is placed into the body to encourage the tissue to return to normal or improve the level of function in the joint.
What is the difference between Dry Needling and Acupuncture?
Dry needling is based on western medicine principles and involves the placement of solid filiform needles into trigger and tender points in muscles. Acupuncture is based on eastern medicine principles such as meridians and chi. The only commonality between the two practices is they use the same needle to achieve the desired effect.
What are the benefits of Dry Needling?
- Dry needling helps resolve symptoms more rapidly and enhances the effect of the chiropractic adjustment.
- Helps alleviate pain and increases range of motion
- Stimulates increase in blood flow which enhances tissue oxygenation leading to faster healing and recovery
- Per treatment the cost is minimal and the cost to benefit ratio is high.
