Using our 38 years of experience, we will determine, the safest and most effective treatment method for your needs, including further medical referrals as necessary. The following are the most popular techniques that are commonly use by our chiropractors.
PEDIATRIC CHIROPRACTIC THERAPY
Pediatric chiropractic is a type of chiropractic care that is specifically designed to help children and infants. It uses gentle, non-surgical methods to improve children’s health. This therapy serves to help children with different types of pain, such as headaches, earaches, problem with sleep, and digestion to name a few. It is often a good choice for parents with problems with their child’s development or growth. Dr. John is one of the First Pediatric chiropractor in Central Florida.
THOMPSON DROP TABLE TECHNIQUE
This removes misalignments of the spine in a much easier, gentle way in addition to our traditional chiropractic adjustments. When you come in for an appointment using this unique and widely accepted technique, you will lay face down on the table. You can wear your shoes for this treatment. This allows for an easier leg check, to give a common reference point to the doctor of where the heel and shoe are joined on each foot. Leg check is a big part of the treatment. The doctor looks at your legs in their extended position to allow the doctor to compare them. This allows the doctor to notice any difference in the lengths of your legs. Adjustments done with the table can even up leg length differences, which makes your whole body more relaxed and work more fluidly and easily.
THE DIVERSIFIED TECHNIQUE
As the name suggests, the diversified technique involves a range of chiropractic adjustments, all of which are used to correct affected vertebral segments. Diversified adjustments involve the delivery a quick and short thrust to the restricted joints by hand or with the assistance of a table. This technique is one of the most commonly practiced techniques at our office.
THE ACTIVATOR METHOD CHIROPRACTIC TECHNIQUE
Next to the Diversified technique, is the Activator adjusting instrument which is reported to be one of the more common therapeutic interventions used by chiropractors. It is a type of manual manipulation treatment used by chiropractors to treat various types of back and neck pain, as well as extremity complaints. This treatment method uses the Activator adjusting instrument, which is an alternative to traditional manipulation utilizing a high velocity , low amplitude (HVLA).
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
The use of massage for trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries. Pressure is applied to a trigger point long enough to release and relax the muscle. This increases blood flow to the muscle to allow normalization and bring it back to a health state.
CERVICAL TRACTION THERAPY
Cervical traction is a treatment used in our office to help treat neck pain and cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerves). It involves gently stretching your neck and separating the disc and joint surfaces in your cervical spine (neck). This modality provides symptomatic relief in 81% of the patients with mild to moderately severe cervical spondylosis syndromes.
THE GONSTEAD TECHNIQUE
At Bellomo Chiropractic we use a thorough analysis of your spine using the following criteria to detect the presence of the vertebral subluxation complex. Visualization, Static Palpation, Motion Palpation, and X'ray analysis. Our chiropractors look for subtle changes in your posture and movement which could indicate any problems, by palpating your spine in a stationary (or static) position; by feeling for the presence of swelling (or edema), tenderness and any abnormal texture or tightness in the muscles and other tissues of your back. Another way is by feeling the spine while moving and bending it at various angles. X-ray films enable our chiropractor to visualize the entire structure of your spine. This is helpful in evaluating posture, joint and disc integrity, vertebral misalignments and ruling out any pathologies, or recent fractures that may be present or contributing to the patient’s condition and to fully substantiate the examination findings.
