WE ONLY USE THE TECHNIQUES THAT GIVE OUTSTANDING RESULTS!

MANUAL ADJUSTIVE TECHNIQUES

East Earl Chiropractic Associates has specific techniques utilized for shoulder treatment, wound treatment, hip treatment, ankle and knees. Treatment of the extremities is a specific education all in of its own. Treatment of those joints and extremities is not like treating the spine and does require specific attention, education and training which is present with Dr. Myers and Dr Doyle . at East Earl Chiropractic Associates.

Pettibon: Pettibon is the specific board certified technique for advanced practitioners only that allow for the doctor to make specific biomechanical correction of the spine that are measurable down to degrees of improvement. This specific technique is comfortable to the patient and is treatment of choice if the patient needs spinal correction, whether x-rays have spinal deviations or loss of cervical or lumbar curves. This technique allows the patient to see before and after x-rays of themselves with measurable progress. This is a highly successful technique for only the most advanced practitioners that provide the patients with superior results.

Gondstead: Gonstead is a technique taught at Palmer College of Chiropractic that is specific to spinal areas that have been rotated or pushed out of position, creating pinched nerve and stress on the joint capsules. Specific listings are taken off of x-ray as well as complex examination findings. It is a comfortable osseous technique that is often utilized on many different patient presentations.

Logan Basic: Logan Basic technique is a gentle soft tissue technique that is quite often comfortable and the patient's often fall asleep. It is a technique that uses low pressure on the sacral tuberus ligaments as well as other spinal areas reducing nerve pressure, spasm and pain in a comfortable setting. This technique has been proven extremely successful in patients that are in so much pain that they can not tolerate an office based manipulative adjustment or instrumentation adjustment.
Thompson Drop Technique: This is a specific technique only the most advanced practitioners at East Earl Chiropractic Associatesuse in which specific instrumentation and tables are used to create an acceleration of the area being treated that allows the vertebral segments to be corrected and adjusted with little force to the patient and very comfortable in correcting dysfunction of the spine that are often too painful for other techniques.

Receptor Tonus Technique: Dr. Myers and Dr. West also have been taking extensive training in soft tissue treatment and Receptor Tonus Technique. This allows elongation and contraction of muscle tissue, working on trigger points and various muscle tissues that are painless to the patient. This allows for increased blood flow, decreased lactic acid build up and allowing the patient to have restored function of dysfunctional muscle tissue in a painless fashion. This is a win-win situation for the appropriate correction of soft tissue injuries.

Instrumentation: This instrumentation adjustment, specific to the Pettibon technique, utilized to create a shearing corrective force into the spine with instrumentation that are comfortable to the patient allowing for cervical spine restoration and specific nerve root irritation to be reduced almost instantly. This is a very popular and requested technique for patients with headaches, neck pain and radicular pain down the arms.

Decompressive therapy: This is a therapy performed on a specifically designed table and usually in the face down position. You will be comfortably positioned on the table and fitted with a harness about the lower portion of your body. This restraint allows the body to be stabilized and undergo a loading and unloading of the lumbar spine. This creates a negative pressure within the disc allowing bulged and herniated discs to reduce their pain on the irritated nerve roots. It also stretches the posterior joint capsule which also is a secondary pain generator. This is a comfortable technique that reduces spasm, facet syndrome, herniated disc and provides great relief. This technique is also so comfortable that patients will fall asleep while undergoing this modality.

IMPULSE Instrument Adjusting: The IMPLUSE is the only clinically proven device to actually make a spinal change to the spine.It is the only to publish the effects and use of optimized wave form technology.Also it utilizes reproducible defined force settings. Impluse has over 50 peer reviewed publications.ISO 13485 Certified l US FDA Registered l Health Canada Listed l CE Certified l UL Listed “When it comes to ensuring the efficacy of the Impulse Family of Adjusting Instruments, to say that we’€™ve ‘gone the extra mile’ is an accurate statement,” The fact is...... NO OTHER ADJUSTING INSTRUMENT HAS FDA CLEARANCE!!!!!!, a CE mark, and Health Canada Class 2 medical device licensure backed by an ISO 13485 Medical Device Certification and UL listing (Underwriters Laboratories®, Inc.).Why would you let a doctor use and instrument on you spine that is NOT FDA cleared to do so ?

Dr. Myers and Dr. West have over 43 years combined of Palmer Package adjustive techniques which is a combination of highly developed techniques utilized to make vertebral corrections on the spine, comfortably to the patient, making biomechanical corrections to the spine, reducing pain and spasm almost instantly. Most patients travel across the county to come to East Earl Chiropractic Associates where we have over 43 years of specific Palmer Package osseous correction , as well as other spinal corrective techniques.We can meet most all patients needs!

OTHER TECHNIQUES THAT WE UTILIZE ARE:

Pettibon, Palmer Package, Gonstead, Logan, Diversified, Nimmo receptor, Spinal Bio-Physiscs/Mechanics. Also the most proven Instrument adjustive technique of IMPLUSE Adjusting Instrument.

PHYSICAL THERAPY TECHNIQUES

Ultrasound: Ultrasound is a therapy that is utilized to increase blood flow, increase tissue permeability, reduce spasm, increase healing and reduce pain. It is comfortable to the patient with low pressure, often using conductive gel that is comfortable to the patient and a slight warming technique may be felt. It is often combined with hydroculator therapy.

Microcurrent: Microcurrent is an advanced electrical current technique which is merely and barely even felt by the patient. It uses microcurrent to create instant pain sensation changes with probes about the area of injury creating tissue permeability, decreased swelling and almost an instant reduction in pain.

Interferential Current: Interferential current is a type of electric stimulation that is specific to computerized evaluation of the tissues allowing the electrical current to create appropriate frequency changes to increased tissue permeability, decrease spasm and promote healing of areas of injury.

Premodulated Current: Premodulated current is a specific electrical modality used to decrease and reduce spasm in an area as well as swelling in an area. It often will provide instantaneous relief of pain and spasm of damaged and injured tissues.

Whole Body Vibration Therapy: This uses the most recent technology to stimulate the brain and certral nervous system to become active in your healing .It is remarkable on how it speeds disc injuries, dizziness, vertigo, headaches and other central nervous system ailments

Russian Stimulation: Russian stimulation is a specific current utilized to create voluntary muscle contraction to rebuild areas of damaged tissue. It is for areas of tissues that have been weakened and the joints are unable to undergo standard rehabilitative protocols. It is a successful gap between passive therapy and active rehabilitative protocols used here at East Earl Chiropractic Associates.

Functional Capacity Evaluation: This is utilization of a complex computerized isometric testing unit to measure areas of weakness in the spine, hips, legs, knees and shoulders, allowing us to tailor make an active rehabilitative program for this patient to rehabilitate the injuries sustained.

Massage therapy: Our therapists are licensed in Deep Tissue , Swedish Massage, Trigger Point, Myoskeletal techniques, Myofascial Release , and Pre-natal. You name it, they can do it !!!

Traction: East Earl Chiropractic use several forms of traction some cervicle (neck) some lumbar(low back) some static(none moving) some no static or (moving) do aid in the disc bulging correction.So depending on your problem we have the proper form of traction for you.
