Traditional chiropractic care includes manipulative therapy such as adjustments, manual therapy, active release techniques, passive stretching, and routine therapy.
We also offer drug-free, nonsurgical techniques to address neuromuscular skeletal issues. Chiropractors are also trained in primary care and can address other issues or refer you to specialists for further evaluation and consultation.
Customized exercises promote whole body wellness and prevent future injury. They also help stabilize and retain the body’s muscular system while improving muscle tone and coordination.
Physical therapy is conducted during each visit, and patients are encouraged to continue physical therapy at home through a home exercise program. We work with other doctors, accept private patients, and accept referrals, but they are not necessary.
These techniques include ultrasound, electric stimulation therapy, percussion or vibration massage, manual muscle technique, and cold level laser. Therapeutic modalities relax the muscles, decrease healing time, and assist with healing.
Before treating you, we do an initial consultation to determine the diagnosis and best modalities for you. Modalities can be changed in frequency, duration, or strength depending on location and condition of the affected area.
This therapeutic modality utilizes flexible tape to address and correct biomechanical faults throughout the entire muscular skeletal system, but it is most effective in the extremities. Used in conjunction with other modalities, it’s geared toward sports injuries and those who need to be active under care.
Often, we conduct a gait analysis to determine need and placement of the Kinesiology Tape. Gait analysis is a visual assessment of the patient’s most natural walking form to determine biomechanical form.
Used in conjunction with modalities, massage therapy addresses acute and chronic muscular skeletal issues. All massage therapy is customized per patient according to doctors’ recommendations. Therapy is done in 15-minute blocks for up to four blocks.
Look and feel better with vitamin supplements and other necessary nutrients. We offer weight loss consultations and overall well-being counseling with diets to make an impact on patients’ lives. Patient- and condition-specific nutritional plans are created based on an initial consultation or when nutritional deficiencies exist.
Enjoy the convenience of on-site X-rays at Allegany Chiropractic Center. We conduct and develop digital X-rays in the office, which saves time on consultations. After reviewing them, we give recommendations based on what we see. X-rays are used to evaluate sports injuries such as fractures or aging conditions such as arthritis, fractures, and other skeletal issues.
Depending on your condition, our doctors may write orders for specific lab work. This may include blood counts, thyroid panels, and more based on the patient’s condition.
This therapy is utilized for decompression of the spine and stretching of paraspinal muscles in both the cervical and lumbar regions. Additionally, traction is used to address degeneration, disc compression, and nerve issues such as sciatica.
