There many forms of physiologic therapeutics that may be used in conjunction to your spinal adjustment. We may employ the use of Ice, heat, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, mechanical (intersegmental) traction and exercise. These procedures will have a specific physiological effect on the body. Their use during the course of the treatment depends upon their specific needs and the goal we want to achieve.
The above mentioned physiologic therapeutics are comparable to what a patient may receive during a physical therapy session, however their use in conjunction with specific manipulations (adjustments) is to remove structural or nervous system irritation that may be the contributing factor in a patient's condition.
