Digital X-ray Image Stitching

 Image stitching or photo stitching is the process of combining multiple photographic images.  Williamston Chiropractic has the most up to date ability to analyze the spine as a whole to determine the proper treatment needed in your case individually. 

Electric Muscle Stimulation

 Electrical stimulation, or e-stim, is a chiropractic therapy treatment modality used to improve muscle function, decrease pain, or promote healing. 

Myofascial Release

 Myofascial release is a manipulative treatment that attempts to release tension in the fascia due to trauma, posture, or inflammation. Connective tissues called fascia surround the muscles, bones, nerves, and organs of the body. 

Hot and Cold

  Heat therapy induces vasodilation: drawing blood into the target tissues. Increased blood flow delivers needed oxygen and nutrients, and removes cell wastes. The warmth decreases muscle spasm, relaxes tense muscles, relieves pain, and can increase range of motion. Cold therapy produces vasoconstriction, which slows circulation reducing inflammation, muscle spasm, and pain. 

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is used to provide deep heating to soft tissues in the body. These tissues include muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments.  This is done by using a sound wave with very fast mechanical vibration to remove inflammation from the tissue.

Intersegmental Traction

 Intersegmental traction is an effective chiropractic therapy that induces passive motion into the spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints and increasing mobility.  It also helps to gently and effectively reestablish normal range of motion to your spine.
