Other Chiropractic Treatments Offered by our Edmonton Clinic

Advanced Gentle Chiropractic Treatment Options

Our clinic offers gentle treatment options and adjustment methods that eliminate the vigorous body motions involved in traditional chiropractic. These options are ideal for seniors, those with increased physical fragility, and patients uncomfortable with manual spinal manipulation.

 

We Offer Advanced Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments Using the Impulse iQ Instrument

The Impulse iQ is a computerized adjusting instrument controlled by a micro-processor. It uses Auto-sense technology to measure the precise amount of spinal motion and the frequency (or speed) of spinal motion during an adjustment.

 

The iQ produces a controlled force that can be precisely delivered to the body. The duration and speed of the adjustment is customized to the patient's spine, and the instrument automatically stops when the adjustment is completed.

 

In contrast to traditional hands-on methods, patients simply feel a light tapping sensation in the area being treated. In most cases, the treatment is painless. The adjustment improves spinal motion, stimulates spinal nerves, and decreases muscle tension. After the impulse adjustment, patients feel relief of pain and improved mobility.

Soft Tissue Therapy and Active Muscle Treatment

Active Muscle Treatment is a movement-based muscle release technique used to treat soft tissue and restore proper muscle and joint motion. Your chiropractor may use Active Muscle Treatment and/or myofascial release (focussed massage) to provide long-lasting relief from headache, backache, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, knee pain, shin splints, and other painful conditions that stem from overuse or restricted motion.

 

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is an effective and gentle treament for ligament, tendon, joint or muscle injuries. 

 

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression-traction uses a sensitive computer-feedback mechanism that continuously monitors the body's muscular reaction to the applied level of traction and re-adjusts the tension to maximize comfort. Read more >
