Treating both the muscles and the joints achieves the greatest results.
Chiropractors are generally known for adjusting joints. At Chiropractie Vliet we treat both the joints and soft tissues (muscles and connective tissues). This dual approach achieves greater and more lasting results. A combination of treatments is used: chiropractic adjustments and muscle therapies.
Chiropractic adjustments restore joint health and joint mobility. This significantly improves pain and quality of life. In addition, healthy joints allow the surrounding musculature and nerves to function properly.
We first assess your joint mobility using hands-on assessments and tests. We then perform precise adjustments to release and relieve the restricted joints.
After adjustments, we treat the muscles and soft tissues that are also causing your pain and symptoms. We use a variety of therapies and provide an overview herewith:
Dry Needling is used to heal trigger points, stimulate the nerves, and promote tissue healing. Sterile, fine needles are utilized.
Instrument Assisted Soft-tissue Mobilization (IASTM) increases circulation and reduces chronic inflammation. Topical oil is applied followed by massage strokes with a specialized tool.
Active Trigger Point Therapy restores oxygen and nutrients to soft tissues. We combine targeted pressure with active movement. Results are achieved very quickly.
Upon request we provide targeted exercises that can be repeated at home to further maintain healthy joints and tissues.
