Dr. Orlando uses a variety of specific Chiropractic techniques including Drop Table, Diversified, Gonstead, Activator and SOT to ensure that each individual receives the best possible spinal treatment while in his care. Below is a list of services also performed on patients in our office.
Hot Pack Therapy: The application of moist heat pads helps relax the spinal muscles and increase blood flow to the area of application. Heat Therapy is very essential and facilitates the Chiropractic Adjustment.
Trigger Point Therapy: Trigger point therapy involves stretching and deep manual pressure to relax muscles, relieve pain and ease tension.
Intersegmental Traction: Intersegmental traction can be used in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments to aid in the correction of spinal subluxations.
Flexion-Distraction: When using flexion distraction, the chiropractor has the patient lie on a specialized table that gently stretches spinal musculature and gently mobilizes the spinal joints. This again aids the chiropractor in performing light force adjustments. Benefits of flexion-distraction:
- Reduce pressure on spinal nerves, discs and joints
- Decrease bulging of herniated discs
- Improve range of motion and mobility
- Help manage chronic back pain
- Relieve stiffness
- Promote good disc health
