A family chiropractor treats every member of the family from babies to the elderly. Everyone can enjoy the health benefits that chiropractic care provides. Dr. Raymond Resnick of Resnick Chiropractic in Exton, PA offers his patients personalized care that helps them to achieve the health goals they have.
Chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is one of the most common treatments that a family chiropractor provides. It can be gentle enough to use on a pregnant woman, a newborn baby, or the elderly. Adjustments can be made manually or with a handheld instrument. Depending on who is getting the manipulation, Dr. Resnick will offer the technique that will work best. When the spine is out of alignment, it affects the entire body. Nothing works as efficiently as it should and this causes a variety of problems.
Therapeutic massage, unlike spa massage, targets a specific area where the soft tissue issue is located. It helps to relax and work out the knots in the area to allow other treatments that your chiropractor uses to work better.
Electrical muscle stimulation
E-stim is a therapy that helps muscles to relax through the use of low levels of electric current. The current causes tiny contractions to the muscles which, after a time, make the muscles tire and they relax. It also stimulates the production of endorphins which helps with pain relief. It is effective in helping with muscular injuries that athletes at every level can suffer from.
Cold laser therapy
Cold laser therapy uses light to treat inflammation and pain in all parts of the body. It goes deep below the skin and raises the heat in the tissues, promoting healing and reducing swelling and pain.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to vibrate and heat the tissue to help with healing, inflammation, and pain. It helps to break down scar tissue and increase circulation to the area in need of relief.
When the discs that cushion the vertebrae become injured or just suffer from wear and tear, they can bulge or herniate. This causes them to move outside the area between the vertebrae and press on the nerve. Spinal decompression stretches the spine and causes suction that pulls the disc back into its place. This removes the pressure on the nerve and the pain without having to resort to surgery. It is done with a computer program that is set for each patient.
