Your Truecare Experience can include chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue care, nutritional counseling and movement coaching.
A chiropractic adjustment is a manual therapy performed to induce movement into a joint. This facilitates a reaction within your nervous system through receptors to change the biomechanical function of a joint. Our chiropractic physicians are trained to perform a wide spectrum of chiropractic adjustments which they will discuss to optimize results and comfort level.
Soft tissue therapies are performed to find balance between muscles and joints in the body. When specific muscle release is performed to an over functioning muscle to attain equilibrium there is less strain on a joint, allowing the adjustment to be more effective.
Our bodies are designed TO MOVE. Life only happens while it is in movement. Implementing therapeutic exercises into your treatment plans help to strengthen your foundation, move your joints and stabilize your movement patterns to prevent future injury.
