Chiropractor Coon Rapids, MN

Looking for a Chiropractor Coon Rapids, MN? The spine is a primary cause of pain and disease in the body. The pain experienced is due to improper alignment of the vertebrae in your spinal column — a subluxation. Your chiropractor adjusts this misalignment by applying pressure, massage and/or manual manipulation to the vertebrae and joints. By the release of the pressure and irritation on the nerves, pain is reduced and joint mobility is restored, returning proper balance to your body. So, when the bones in your spine are adjusted to their proper positions, nerve energy can resume its normal flow and your body’s natural healing processes function properly.

Alternative Therapies Offered by Chiropractors

Chiropractors mainly use spinal manipulation to realign your spine but they have many more therapeutic procedures they use in conjunction with adjustments to help make your treatment even more effective.

Here are some of the possible other therapeutic procedures they may use:

Laser Therapy is a breakthrough pain relief device — it combines low level laser therapy and micro-current electrical stimulation.  Studies have shown that it’s 93% effective in decreasing pain and has been helpful with alleviating back pain, a stiff neck or shoulder, hip, knee or foot pain, Carpal Tunnel, Fibromyalgia, arthritis, tennis or golf elbow, sciatica and more.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (“muscle stim”) involves low levels of electrical impulses delivered to the injured, painful tissues to reduce pain and speed healing. Patients describe this treatment as a pleasant “tingling” sensation or “electrical massage.” The electrical impulses stimulate the body to release natural pain relievers, called endorphins that reduce pain and inflammation — thereby promoting faster healing of the injured tissues

Therapeutic ultrasound utilizes sound waves to treat injured muscles, joints and soft tissues — the sound waves vibrate the tissues back and forth creating a deep, micro-massage effect. This helps to decrease inflammation, scar tissue and adhesion formation which would otherwise interfere with the body’s healing process. This treatment also accelerates healing by stimulating the activity of the cells responsible for cellular and tissue repair.

Ice Therapy (Cryotherapy) is one of the best therapies for acute injuries — the application of ice over any painful tissue is usually effective at any stage of an injury. It constricts blood flow to the tissue thereby reducing swelling, pain and muscular spasms.

Heat (Hydrocollator Pack) is effective in treating conditions that are more chronic in nature. It is not recommended that heat be used within the first few days or weeks of a new injury, especially when any signs of swelling are present. The best forms of heat are in the form of a warm bath/shower or a moist heating pad.
