Treatment Techniques Include:

~Spinal Manipulation Therapy (SMT) is a hands on adjustment used to provide a quick stretch through a joint. Joint Manipulation is typically accompanied by a popping sound. This "pop" is from the collapse of little gas bubbles in the joint due to the pressue change that comes from being stretched.

~Joint Mobilization is a gentle way to stretch a joint within it's normal range of motion. This is a great option for children, seniors, and those who are unsure about being adjusted.

~Activator is a hand held instrument used to create a high speed but low force adjustment through a joint. Similarly to mobilizations, this gentle technique is a great option for those who do not want a traditional adjustment, as well as for children and the elderly.

~Drop piece is an excellent option for low back and pelvic pain patients. This gentle technique involves pushing down on the pelvis while a collapsable section of the chiropractic table drops. The momentum from the table piece dropping creates a deep, comfortable stretch through the low back and hips.

~Soft Tissue Therapy including Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, and muscle stripping. These are deep muscle treatments used to improve muscle function.

~Trigger Point Needling involves inserting an acupunture needle into a tight muscle and gently manipulating it. This causes the muscle to relax.

Functional Assessments

Some patients require a more indepth assessment that includes specific muscle testing through a range of functional movements, as well as breathing and postural evaluations. This type of assessment is beneficial for those with chronic issues such as:

The treatment consists of a rehabilitation (exercise) program that is specific to your body's muscle imbalances. Dr. Melissa offers both 40 minute and 60 minute appointment lengths for this detailed assessment and treatment. Please note that this is available to existing patients only. If you are a new patient, book for a new assessment first prior to scheduling a functional assessment, as it is an extenuation of your existing care plan. 

 

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture

While acupuncture has roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Dr. Melissa uses a different treatment approach. She was trained in Contemporary Medical Acupuncture (CMA) through McMaster University, a program that is world renowned and at the forefront of today’s acupuncture research.

CMA is a treatment which involves insertion and gentle manipulation of needles in the body. These needles can affect muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and joints and work to return the body to its natural balance. CMA can be used to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions such as:
