Therapy – Rehab & Manual Therapy in Holland

The doctors at our wellness center believe that additional therapies are an essential part of your overall well-being, as well as a complement to our other chiropractic services. Therapy can aid in healing, relieve pain, promote relaxation, plus increase strength and stabilization.

Based on your medical necessity, the doctors at our practice will determine a course of treatment tailored to your specific condition or injury. Then, during your therapy, our therapist will work on your muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, skin, fascia and other areas that are pertinent to the kind of therapy you are receiving.

Manual Therapy

At Parkhurst Chiropractic, your chiropractor and our qualified therapists will determine which therapies best address your condition or injury. Your session could include the following:

Active Isolated Stretching – a technique of muscle lengthening and fascial release. A type of athletic stretching that provides functional and physiological restoration of both superficial and deep muscles.

Cold Laser Therapy (LLLT) – a tool used to reduce pain and inflammation. It regenerates tissues at a cellular level while also helping to speed up the tissue’s ability to heal itself.

E-Stim – a tool used to provide relief by utilizing electrical impulses to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.

Rapid Release – a tool used to help loosen up muscles that are tight or in spasm.

Soft Tissue Mobilization – a technique used to break up inelastic or fibrous muscle tissue such as scar tissue, move tissue fluids and relax muscle tension.

Thermotherapy – a technique that involves applying heat to a localized or general area of the body using hot stones or bamboo. The result is a relaxing treatment that soothes even the deepest of muscle bringing comfort and relaxation.

Trigger Point Therapy – a technique of relieving stored stress in specific spots in the body known as trigger points (knots), which can cause pain. By holding pressure on these areas the tightness and pain can be relieved.

Ultrasound– a tool used to warm tissue, increase blood flow and reduce pain in specific muscles.

Assisted Exercises

In addition to manual therapy, your doctor may determine that you would benefit from assisted exercise. Assisted Exercise can help build strength, endurance, flexibility, and range of motion. You will enjoy personalized attention during your session which may include the following:

Kinesio Taping on kneeKinesiology Taping – Kinesiology taping provides support without restricting the range of motion, helping to prevent overstretching and over-contraction of affected muscles. This form of treatment helps to relieve acute and chronic pain, reduces swelling and inflammation and improves circulation to injured areas helping you to heal faster. It can even enhance the strength of injured or under-toned muscles to prevent further injury.

One-on-One Training – You’ll enjoy individualized attention at our wellness center facility. Our doctors and qualified therapists create a personalized program of exercises to bring strength and stabilization back to the injured area. You’ll perform these exercises under the therapist’s supervision in a room equipped for rehabilitation. Some of these exercises can also be done at home.

Whole Body Vibration – Whole body vibration increases strength, dexterity and endurance. This physical rehabilitation technique works and challenges your muscles in small, rapid vertical and horizontal motions. This motion excites stretch receptors and tendon reflexes in joints, promoting increased receptor activity and safely challenges balance and coordination.
