Therapy & Techniques
A chiropractor uses different hands-on therapies to treat the spine and soft tissues. These therapies include instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization, pin and stretch techniques, and Graston Technique. Some chiropractors use electrical stimulation to stimulate the muscles in the body. Some types are effective in relieving pain, while others cause the muscles to contract. However, the results of chiropractic treatments vary from person to person. Before a treatment is given, it is important to discuss the risks and benefits with your chiropractor.
