HERE AT MOUNTAINVIEW, WE TREAT AN ARRAY OF DIFFERENT ISSUES:
AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!
Along with original chiropractic practices we also have specialized treatments including Adjusting Instruments, C.R.A (Contact Reflex Analysis), Graston, Physical Medicine and Rehab Protocols.
Soft tissue injuries can be debilitating and frustrating. Graston Technique® (GT) is successful in effectively treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute or post surgical. GT can help you enjoy life again.
Our unique technique and instruments enable physical and occupational therapists, chiropractors, athletic trainers, and hand therapists to address scar tissue and fascial restrictions during rehabilitation and to administer effective range of motion maintenance programs.
The non-invasive technique uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to help the clinician identify and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
GT allows a clinician to get as deep into the tissue as necessary to invoke change, yet be sensitive to patient pain and tolerance. As the instruments are moved over the affected area and come in contact with the adhesions, they help break up scar tissue and fascial restrictions. In time, this process will reduce or eliminate the adhered fibers, restoring range of motion and eliminating the associated pain. It will help transform your soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue.(http://www.grastontechnique.com)
The traditional CRA method utilizes a practitioner who typically applies a single, downward push on the wrist of a patient’s outstretched arm while also making contact with a specific reflex point on the patient’s body. The gentle, but firm push is like a subtle “question” and the muscle reactivity response is the “answer.” There is a subtle shift of energy that is detected through the muscle when an area of imbalance is found. When trying to understand how CRA as an energy connection works, it is sometimes helpful to compare the energy of the body to the flow of electricity in a house. We typically don’t think or worry about what’s going on with our body unless something goes wrong and symptoms are produced. It’s the same with our home. No one worries about the refrigerator or being able to keep food cold, or the furnace heating the home when it’s 10 degrees outside. If the computer suddenly shuts down, however, and the lights won’t go on, and the house is getting colder by the minute, it becomes an urgent matter. It becomes a priority to assess what happened, and then to figure out what needs to be done.(https://www.crawellnessartists.com)
Chiropractic techniques fit into 3 basic models based on the three body systems primarily addressed by chiropractors. Chiropractic intimately involves itself with the skeletal system, the muscle system and the nervous system. Therefore, while all chiropractic techniques involve all three systems, the techniques themselves can be differentiated from one another based on their method of assessment and their method of correction.
Segmental or skeletal system centered chiropractic techniques adjust vertebrae that are not in their optimum position back to a more normal position and, in so doing, affect the nervous system first and then the muscle system next.
Postural or muscle system centered chiropractic techniques first involve putting tension or relaxation within the muscle system in order to allow an easier structural adjustment to take place. In so doing, this approach involves the muscle system first which then affects the skeletal system and then, finally, the nervous system.
Tonal or nervous system centered chiropractic techniques are not muscle or bone based but rather focus on the nervous system and the related changes in a person’s physiology. As such, tonal chiropractic techniques look at the nervous system first and the doctor’s input into the nervous system then affects the muscle system which, in turn, affects the skeletal system.
