Heartland, Mississauga Chiropractor, Dr. Michelle uses an approach that focuses on adjusting your joints, along with stretching and activating your muscles to relieve issues.
Since the muscles allow the joint to move, it’s important to release the tightness in the muscles so they don’t continue to pull the joint into improper positioning. As the muscles start to work correctly, your adjustments will be more effective and hold. The soft tissue techniques Dr. Michelle uses are:
+ Medical Acupuncture. + Myofascial Release Therapy. + Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization. + Cupping Therapy
Dr. Michelle also specialize in Diversified chiropractic adjustments. She will focus her adjustment on areas that need to be adjusted. She will also tailor adjustments to your comfort level and will explain the entire process, so you understand what needs to move and why. Other adjustment technique Dr. Michelle uses is Thompson or "Drop Table" adjustments, these adjustments are low force and more gentle. They are often used for pregnancy care or acute sciatic pains.
When the joints of your spine, or extremities, don’t move as they should, the result is often pain and dysfunction in the joint, the muscles around it, and sometimes in other areas of the body.
Chiropractic adjustments are a safe and effective way to restore proper joint movement, so that we can get your functional movement back to normal. Dr. Michelle will combine chiropractic adjustments with soft tissue work, to address the muscles and joints.
