Kinesiotaping is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. Kinesiotaping has been used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions, and has shown results that would have been unheard of using older methods and materials.
Rehabilitative exercises help strengthen the affected area, and as importantly help the brain to reconnect to the injured area. My Chiro on Preston’s practitioners will first restore function in the injured area and then prescribe specific rehabilitative exercises to reinforce the healing therapies and processes.
Dry needling is a procedure using solid filament, single use, disposable (acupuncture) needles which are inserted into the skin and muscle directly at a myofascial trigger point. A myofascial trigger point (sometimes called a ‘knot’ in the muscle or muscle spasm) consists of multiple contracted muscle fibres, which are related to the production and maintenance of the pain cycle.
Massage therapists make use of long, smooth strokes, kneading and other movements focused on the layers of muscle, sometimes utilising massage oil or lotion. Massage enhances circulation by bringing oxygen and other nutrients to body tissues.
Chiropractic for Children
At My Chiro on Preston we help little people to be comfortable and to perform at their best by improving their spine. Chiropractors understand that a healthy spine enables a child to grow straight and strong, helps prevent injuries and allows their all important nervous system to do its job properly. It is through helping the nervous system that chiropractic care can help many children live healthier lives.
Chiropractic Check Ups
When it comes to good health for you and your family, preventing a problem is much easier than treating a problem. In the long run, prevention also costs much less. Most of us were introduced to chiropractic care when we were adults – and we had to play catch-up for however long a period of time before we really began to feel healthy again. If we began chiropractic care as a younger adult, it probably didn’t take too long to restore good health.
