Methods and Techniques
Manipulative methods and techniques are types or styles of treatment used by chiropractic physicians. Dr. Mitchell uses many different techniques in which he has become proficient during more than 45 years of experience treating thousands of patients. Following is a brief listing of some of the methods or techniques available in our clinic. We also provide Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy Modalities. Here is more information about some of these methods and techniques.
Our office uses special equipment designed to provide internal disc decompression utilizing the DTS Spinal Decompression system and/or the Flexion-Distraction method. These methods create negative internal disc pressure resulting in retraction of disc herniation or bulges and promote healing of the damaged area. This is the most advanced, scientifically researched non-surgical treatment for chronic neck and low back conditions. No needles. No knives. Just gentle, effective non-surgical treatment.
For more information visit our page on "Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression" on the menu at left.
Used to reduce pressure in the spine in conditions such as spinal arthritis, disc bulges, protrusions and herniations, facet syndrome, sciatica and more. Traction also is beneficial for intervertebral disc rehabilitation and for increasing blood flow to the soft tissue structures of the spine.
This is the use of high frequency sound waves which increase blood flow to an injured area for increased circulation, reduction of pain and softening scar tissue.
There are many different types of electrical stimulation for several different conditions. Our clinic utilizes most types including Sine-Wave, Galvanic, Interferential, Micro-Current and TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). All of these are painless forms of treatment.
Dr. Mitchell uses both electrical and occasionally needle type acupuncture in selected cases. Low level laser acupuncture point stimulation and acupressure are also used as indicated. Acupuncture is painless and is a proven method for relief of pain and is used by some physicians as a method of anesthesia or analgesia. It also stimulates healing in many conditions.
DR. MITCHELL’S PERSONAL TECHNIQUES
These are techniques devised by Dr. Mitchell himself, and include combinations of methods acquired at numerous postgraduate conferences and seminars. All techniques are based on sound neurological assessments and bio-mechanical principles.
We are equipped for complete x-ray evaluation of the spine. Our equipment is modern and includes the use of special film and equipment to reduce exposure. Dr. Mitchell has had extensive training in skeletal radiology and has taken and interpreted over 43,000 x-ray films. Your chiropractic x-rays reveal pathologies and degenerative conditions, help visualize the location of spinal problems, confirm other examination findings and make your adjustments more precise.
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
This may include various forms of hands-on treatment plus combinations of physical therapy modalities and/or acupuncture. Most often trigger point therapy is needed in referred pain, numbness and tingling such as in the arm and hand or hip and leg and frequently in chronic headaches.
