Chiropractic Services from Your Bluffton Chiropractor
Do you need pain relief in Bluffton, IN? Our team at Corrective Chiropractic is here to help. At our full-service chiropractic clinic in Bluffton, our goal is to help you heal and stay healthy for years to come. From pain relief and rehabilitation to corrective and preventative care, our chiropractic services are designed to restore balance and function throughout your body. We know that long-term pain relief and wellness are only possible if we target the specific source of your symptoms, so diagnosis and treatment look different for everyone.
Your chiropractic care regimen will be highly personalized, taking your whole body and lifestyle into account. Whether you have a specific injury or a series of chronic symptoms, our Bluffton chiropractor will put together a plan that’s right for you. It may include one or more of the following chiropractic services:
Neuro-Structural Chiropractic Adjustments in Bluffton
Our chiropractic manipulations are for all ages and lifestyles, from kids with spinal imbalances and athletes with sports injuries to older patients with degenerative conditions. We focus on neuro-structural correction techniques, which means we assess your body and brain as a whole, focusing on your nervous system and neuromuscular connections in addition to the shape and function of your spine.
Of course, neuro-structural correction includes a wide variety of different methods and techniques, all of which help us restore your nervous system and manipulate your spine back into the proper position. Whether you have chronic back pain or a specific injury that is limiting your mobility, our chiropractor in Bluffton will personalize a regimen that works for you. Your treatments may include one or more of these chiropractic adjustment techniques:
Gentle, quick thrusts characterize this high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) technique, which is designed to restore mobility and range of motion to restricted joints.
Another HVLA adjustment technique, the Gonstead or Palmer-Gonstead technique usually involves the use of special chairs or tables to keep the patient in the proper position and maximize the impact of each thrust.
Thompson Drop Technique
Our Bluffton chiropractor uses an adjustable table for this technique because it keeps you in an upright position and then “drops” you to amplify tension during the actual thrust.
Logan Basic Technique
If you have lower back pain, menstrual or prenatal cramps, or just general pain due to stress or lack of sleep, we may use this chiropractic technique, which focuses on disturbances and misalignment of the spinal bone between your hip bones.
One of the most popular chiropractic techniques, the Activator Method uses a precisely calibrated instrument to gently adjust the spine by moving individual vertebrae.
Active Release Technique (ART)
ART adjustments use massage and gentle movements to target the connective tissue, especially the tendons and ligaments, and promote healing and mobility after an injury.
Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy
At Corrective Chiropractic, we know wellness begins before birth, and you want to alleviate your own stress and pain during pregnancy while providing a stable foundation for your child. That’s why our family chiropractic care includes prenatal and postnatal care for pregnant patients. During pregnancy, chiropractic care is an all-natural way to relieve pain, strengthen your core, and maintain balance and posture as your center of gravity changes. After childbirth, we continue to work with new parents to regain strength, restore balance, and rebuild some of your brain-body connections.
Chiropractic Care for Personal Injuries
Are you in pain because of a slip-and-fall injury or a heavy lifting accident at work? Inflammation and pain may be preventing your body from healing correctly, and we know you want to get back to your old routine. We offer chiropractic adjustments for patients with personal injury claims, and we will work with you and your legal team or insurance company to document your treatment details.
In between chiropractic adjustments, you can do your part to strengthen your muscles and reduce tension. We may recommend at-home corrective exercises to maximize the impact of your chiropractic care, prevent setbacks, and keep your body and mind active and stimulated as you heal.
Essentially, neuromuscular re-education is the process of retraining your muscles and brain to communicate. After long periods of muscle restriction or nerve damage, your body may “forget” some of its crucial movements and impulses, so we help re-educate your body and rebuild neurological connections.
If necessary, our chiropractic team will use X-ray imaging to get a detailed look at a specific part of your spine or limbs. Our goal is to rule out fractures and identify the source and degree of imbalance so that we can target the specific injury for more accurate treatments.
If the inflamed or tense tissue is causing pain or restricting your movement, you may need massage therapy before chiropractic adjustments can be effective. Tight, swollen muscles and tendons will put pressure on the surrounding nerves and reduce the range of motion in crucial joints, so we use tissue massage to loosen this tissue and kick-start the healing process.
