Rush Chiropractic Center Services

At Rush Chiropractic Center we off a variety of musculoskeletal services and therapies that will get you out of pain and back to living and performing pain free. After your initial consultation, we will work with you to create a plan of care that meets your needs as a patient. Services that might be included in this plan of care are:

Chiropractic adjustments

Adjustments are probably what you think of when you think of going to the chiropractor. Adjustments get your joints back into proper alignment and restore proper range of motion. Relieving pressure and pain from your spinal nerves and discs.

Electric muscle stimulation

Healing requires blood flow. Electric muscle stimulation brings much-needed blood flow into the muscles that are causing you pain. This helps restore and improve their function and in turn reverses the cause of what started the pain in the first place. Electrical muscle stimulation also reduces muscular spasm and tension and allows your body to experience the full ranges of motion that they were intended to have. 

Intersegmental spinal traction

This may sound a little intimidating, but this service is really all about improving the mobility in your spine. By manually creating movement in the spine, we can help improve the function of your joints. Think of this as a mobility creating massage table. This may be the most relaxing part of your day. Trust us, you will enjoy your time on our IST tables. 

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

This technique is used to treat soft tissue injuries or dysfunction. The technique promotes soft tissue recovery and healing by increasing blood flow, breaking down scar tissue and muscular adhesions, and improving range of motion by decreasing muscular tension.

Myofascial Release Technique

This technique is similar to instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, however it is applied by hand, rather than through the use of tools. The technique speeds up the recovery of soft tissue injuries or dysfunction by breaking down muscular adhesions and scar tissue build up. The technique also promotes healing by increasing blood flow to the affected areas. IASTM and MRT are techniques that are especially great for tendinitis, overuse injuries, or misuse injuries that stem from sports or occupational movements.

Advance Exercise Programming

Along with all the services and therapies that we offer here at Rush Chiropractic Center, Dr. Rush also personally programs and advance exercise program for each individual practice member. The key to staying out of pain and avoiding injury is to build resiliency in the muscles that are coordinating your movement. Since each individual moves differently, each individual will need a program designed just for them. There are no cookie cutter approaches to personalized care. We don’t do that here.

We know that once you are out of pain, staying pain-free is key! That’s why along with these services, Dr. Rush also gives you a unique exercise and stretching program to complete at home in concert with your treatment in our office. The key to getting the best results possible is a team approach. You are not a patient, you are part of the team and will play an active role in your personalized care. This coordinated approach will help you relieve your pain faster and stay pain-free for longer.
