The Activator Method Instrument is a hand-held instrument that the Chirorpactor may use to deliver a mild adjustment to the fixated joints of the spine, and is gentle enough to be used on pediatric as well as senior citizen patients.


Vertebral Distraction Pump (Adjustment Instrument)

Vertebral Distraction Pump
The Vertebral Distraction Pump is a hand held instrument that the Chiropractor may use to adjust the spine. Often gravity and posture positions can compress our spine, but the VDP-Pro instrument gently applies pressure to relieve this compression. Studies show it may help treat and reduce disc herniations, help with sciatica, and be a viable means of applying myofascial release of musculoskeletal conditions. To learn more about the VDP-Pro case studies please visit this link: http://www.vdp-pro.com/studies/ and to see if this method may be beneficial for you, consult with Dr. Caponio, DC.

Extremity Adjustments (Hands-on or with hand-held Impulse Adjuster Tool or with Activator Instrument) - $25.00/area

Chiropractors inspect the spine to look for potential issues with subluxation, fixation, and joint irregularity but these subluxations, fixations and joint irregularities can also be present in the extremities. Chiropractors adjust extremities, meaning the numerous joints present in the body, including the jaw, shoulder, ribs, wrist, elbows, fingers, hand, hip, ankle, knee, and the feet. The extremity adjustments complement the spinal adjustment.

Therapies

Muscle Work (Manual Therapy): $20.00- $45.00/area (depending on time needed)

I. Adhesion Breaking With Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization Instruments- For adhesion breaking muscle work, the Chiropractor utilizes Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization Instruments (IASTM) which are specifically designed to help correct the adhesions and scar tissue that form due to injury and inflammation which occurs during injuries, surgeries, overuse, and underuse conditions This type of manual therapy aims to increase tissue elasticity and fibroblastic activity to return the muscles and surrounding tissues to as close to pre-injury status as possible. This is accomplished by initiating a controlled inflammatory process and commonly a petechiae rash results in the area that was worked on. This process allows the tissue to begin the healing process, breaking down scar tissue and adhesions in the tissue and redirecting collagen formation in the proper orientation for correct movement of muscles and tissues.

Adhesion Breaking work is a more intense type of manual therapy, and is therefore done in short amouts of times, from a few minutes to not to exceed a total of a 8-15 minute total process. Adhesion breaking work can be done on one or more areas of need. To learn more about this process visit: http://www.adhesionbreakers.com.

II. Adhesion Breaking with Hands-on Muscle Release Technique - Muscle Release technique is a manual therapy that aims to treat soft tissue injury and adhesions. Muscles may build up scar tissue and adhesions which can lead to weak, short, and rigid muscles. Adhesions alter the motion of muscles and joints, and can cause symptoms like pain, numbness, weakness, tingling sensations, and reduced range of motion. The Chiropractor assesses the texture, tightness and mobility of the muscle while using hand pressue aimed at breaking up any scar tissue/adhesions. The Chiropractor also guides the patient to actively move or stretch the affected area during the treatment. Depending on the area addressed, this therapy may may reduce symptoms such as muscle pain, back pain, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sciatica, to name a few.

TMJ Treatment Protocol- $25.00
