Therapy Q & A

What chiropractic techniques are available?

The doctors at Everest Medical Group provide holistic care that considers all the factors that influence your health, and then develop a customized treatment that gets to the underlying cause of your problems rather than focusing on only your symptoms.

Chiropractic techniques focus on your spine and joints. The goal is to improve alignment, reduce pain and stiffness, and restore mobility. The team at Everest Medical Group are highly trained in many chiropractic techniques, including gentle methods that are safe for all ages and delicate areas like your neck.

The chiropractic techniques employed during your treatment may include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Spinal manipulation and mobilization
  • Spinal decompression
  • Cervical mobilization
  • Manual and mechanical traction
  • Pain management with therapies like cold laser to boost healing
  • Thompson technique for gentle adjustment using a drop table
  • Graston technique for soft tissue mobilization
  • Gonstead technique for quick, shallow adjustment

How does spinal adjustment promote body-wide health?

When your doctor adjusts your spine, you’ll experience benefits throughout your body.

If your spine is imbalanced or has a partial or complete dislocation, the spinal canal narrows and pushes against the nerves and blood vessels that travel through the spine and throughout your body. This pressure causes pain and dysfunction, which is relieved when your spine is healed.

What is physical therapy?

Chiropractic treatment and physical therapy go hand in hand as they work together to return your musculoskeletal system to optimal wellness. Physical therapy uses diverse modalities to reduce inflammation, increase your range of motion, improve strength and flexibility, and reduce the risk of future injury.

Physical therapy includes:

  • Structured exercise
  • Transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation
  • Massage
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Myofascial release
  • Postural training
  • Ergonomic training

Which other therapies might your chiropractic care plan include?

The chiropractors at Everest Medical Group support all aspects of your health, providing services such as:

Diet and nutrition counseling

Whether you need a special diet to support athletic activities, or you need to replace nutrient deficiencies, your doctor can assess your nutritional status and design a nutrition program customized to meet your needs.

Lifestyle modification counseling

To truly achieve wellness, your lifestyle choices need to support your ongoing health. The team at Everest Medical Group talk with you about life habits and develop a plan to help you make improvement where necessary, such as getting regular exercise, learning to relieve stress, or quitting bad habits like smoking.
