Here at River Parishes Chiropractic, we have many different services to fit your specific needs. Whether you have been hurt in a car accident, on the job, playing sports, or are just experiencing spinal pain, we can help.

Digital X-Ray

Chiropractic radiology is a specialized aspect of chiropractic care. It is a technique and diagnostic tool that we use to look inside the body in a completely non-invasive way. X-rays allow us to create an image of the skeletal system, thereby providing chiropractors with a better understanding of your body. Using state-of-the-art digital technology, we can see the injuries, fractures, dislocations, and misalignments of the spine resulting from trauma, repetitive movements, and activities of daily living.

 

Interferential Current Therapy

We use interferential stimulation the most. Two channels of electrical stimulation create a third current that penetrates the affected tissues with little resistance. This stimulation will help control the pain and muscle contractions.

Therapeutic Ultrasound

Ultrasound therapy is a chiropractic treatment used to help reduce muscle pain and increase range of motion. By using sound waves, we are able to stimulate deep inside the tissue. This minimizes stiffness, swelling, and pain while also promoting circulation, and pain-free movement. This is a popular treatment because it is non-invasive, painless procedure that achieves results for people dealing with chiropractic issues. The ultrasound device is very simple to use, and only requires a small amount of gel applied to the skin in order to treat tissue.

Spinal Manipulation

Spinal Manipulation Therapy or a Chiropractic Adjustment as it sometimes referred to, are minor movements of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.

Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive mechanical procedure performed within our office to help alleviate back pain. It involves gently stretching the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs (the cushions that separate the vertebrae in the spine). By relieving this pressure, bulging discs can retract back into place which takes pressure off the nerves in the spine. By decompressing the spine, it permits water, oxygen and other fluids to work their way back into the discs allowing them to heal naturally. Spinal decompression is an excellent option for anyone with chronic back pain who wants to get back to living a pain-free life as quickly as possible.

Therapeutic Exercise

Physical rehabilitation uses mechanical force and movement to improve mobility, function, and even quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention. Our physical therapists are trained and licensed to examine, evaluate, diagnose, and treat impairment, functional limitations, and disabilities in patients.

We also offer Intersegmental Traction Therapy, Dry Hydrotherapy, Cryotherapy, and Heat Therapy.
