How your body produces energy has a profound effect on your recovery time from an injury, a disease, a pathogen, and thriving throughout your day. Feeling tired is a symptom, not a normal way of life. Learn how to thrive in today’s modern world.
Chiropractic Adjustments and Mobilizations
Chiropractic adjustments and mobilizations are some of the safest known techniques to provide pain relief. When an area of the body becomes tight or restricted, it can cause other areas of the body to compensate – leading to pain and performance issues.
Rehabilitation is a tried-and-true therapy in restoring strength and function to the body. Our chiropractors are trained in leading physical therapy techniques and approaches to offer you a premier healthcare experience.
Blood Flow Restriction Training (BFR)
Blood Flow Restriction Therapy is a game changer for helping student athletes return-to-play ASAP. In conjunction with other therapies we offer, we can drastically impact how fast ankle sprains, torn muscles, broken bones, and other damaged tissue(s) recover.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy
PEMF Therapy is another game changer. It is a way to dry needle without needing a needle. By inducing a microcurrent into the body we can stimulate all cells, within the electromagnetic field, to recover faster. This can help with wound healing, sleep, energy levels, fatigue, fractures and more.
Dry Needling helps to target deep, tight, and restricted tissue(s) to which other soft-tissue techniques cannot reach. We have become known for our advanced training within dry needling compared to our competitors.
Breathing correctly is the most profound exercise anyone can do to physically help their body heal. Our breath restoration course is designed for those with sleep apnea, asthma, panic attacks, and much more.
Active Release Techniques (A.R.T.)
ART is a unique approach in stretching tight and restricted tissue(s) of the body. There are over 500 protocols. By applying force, from a practitioner, in a unique direction, we can separate tight tissue(s) faster than more generic approaches helping you feel better - faster.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)
There are many names for this technique. However, all forms of IASTM, work by applying force into the body and separating scarred, tight, adhered, or sensitized tissue to feel better faster. We take an active approach with our technique by having you perform exercises during to maximize your results.
Kinesio Tape (Rocktape)
Through the application and techniques within taping, we can help de-stress injured and/or painful areas by pulling the skin, fascia, and muscle(s) in a way to help recovery. Through the use of our approach utilizing Rocktape, we can help you move more freely and comfortably between visits and/or athletic events.
Custom Foot Orthotics
Custom foot orthotics should be a last use effort in helping address your symptoms and concerns. But when needed, our custom foot orthotics are the top-of-the-line product by integrating gait analysis, pedographs, molding, joint palpation, and much more.
Our unique approach towards sports physicals is what a sports physical should truly be about. We offer an advanced sports physical which addresses movement, strength, power, symmetry capabilities and limitations. It helps the student-athlete and parent understand a student-athlete’s at-risk potential for a specific sport and how to move, function, and train to improve these potential risks. A sports physical should include a sport assessment.
The goal of cupping is to help balance tension within the body, by releasing areas holding too much tension via cups. Our chiropractors at ICT Muscle & Joint Clinic, utilize cupping for the treatment and rapid release of taut soft tissues, myofascial pain, inflammation, blood flow, and improved joint range of motion.
