Services We Offer
Chiropractors are licensed healthcare professionals who primarily concentrate on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of spinal disorders and other mechanical conditions of the musculoskeletal system.
Chiropractic care places a strong emphasis on the body’s ability to heal itself without employing surgery, drugs, or other medical measures.
Patients often experience relief from a wide range of painful and dangerous symptoms by seeking quality chiropractic care. At McCarthy Chiropractic Inc, we address countless health and wellness issues using a variety of approaches. Read more about some of our specific services below.
We use activator/instrument-assisted adjusting, myofascial adjustments, and SOT blocks to perform chiropractic adjustments with a milder touch than the more traditional manual adjustment.
In activator-assisted adjustments, we use a spring-loaded, mechanical instrument which aids in chiropractic adjustment by delivering a rapid, low-force impulse with extreme precision. This type of adjustment can accomplish many of the same benefits as a manual adjustment by improving the body’s alignment and helping with overall body function.
Otherwise known as e-stim, electro-muscle stimulation uses clinical electrical equipment that produces pulses that replicate the signals emanated by the neurons of the human nervous system. By directing mild electrical currents to specific nerves, e-stim produces muscle contractions that improve blood flow and promote tissue repair. Electrical stimulation is a powerful therapy that has also been used to block pain receptors and even restore the natural motor function of stroke victims with nervous system paralysis.
In the wake of an injury or a surgical procedure, many people can benefit greatly from a targeted physical rehabilitation regimen. When patients come to us for rehabilitation, we will use a combination of adjustments and other modalities. For post-treatment care at home, we generally recommend a program of exercises to help in recovery from physical trauma and to rebuild former mobility and range of movement.
When provided by a chiropractor with proper specialized training, chiropractic care has proven to be safe and effective for pregnant women as well as babies and young children. During pregnancy, chiropractic care has proven extremely helpful in the management of back, hip, and joint pain that goes hand in hand with carrying the extra weight of a baby. Pediatric chiropractic care includes treating young people for conditions that include headaches, sports injuries, ear pain, and colic. It can also help manage symptoms of poor immune response, sleep disturbances, allergies, asthma, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
