Chiropractors adjust the spine and other joints to facilitate unimpeded transmission of nerve impulses. The central nervous system being the big relay station for bodily functions can then regulate and adapt much easier to whatever life brings our way.
Dr. Irène uses elements from different adjusting techniques to accommodate each patient's specific needs and comfort level. At every session, the whole body is assessed literally from head to toe for misalignments. The adjustments are delivered in a gentle and effective manner and with Swiss precision!
Graston Technique uses six differently shaped instruments for the treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and the myofascial network. They specifically target adhesions and scars in the soft tissues. Areas in your muscles that feel bumpy, as if in a knot, get smoothed out and the tension released. Cells are activated, the circulation is increased, and the tissues can heal. This leads to better function and less pain. Graston instrument treatments usually show results in just a few sessions. Combined with posture evaluation and correction, and strengthening exercises, long lasting relieve from pain and discomfort can be achieved.
Cold Laser Therapy
Entirely non-invasive, this modality uses the positive effects light has on cells and tissues. Inflammation is reduced and blood flow is increased, cells are stimulated and nourished. The result is faster and better healing and pain reduction.
Rapid Release Technique
This device uses high speed vibration therapy to address muscle tension and adhesions. The specific frequency of the vibrations break up adhesive and scarred areas in muscles and connective tissues, and simply reverberate through healthy tissue. A safe, effective, and comfortable treatment modality even for trigger points.
Cupping is used in many healing traditions. At Silverlake Chiropractic, we use suction cups to locally stretch areas of tightness and flush them with increased blood flow. We do not leave marks, as the focus is on mobilizing the tissues.
Cranial-Facial-Release is a very specific technique applied to the face, nose, and cranium (skull). Patients have found relief from chronic difficulties breathing through the nose, headaches, symptoms from head trauma such as concussions, longstanding sinus problems and many more.
BEMER Vascular Therapy
BEMER is designed to improve circulation thereby supporting the body’s natural self-regulating processes. Blood is the body’s universal means of transport. Oxygen, nutrients, chemical messengers (e.g. hormones) and immune cells etc. are all transported through our blood. Only when all of our body’s cells, tissues and organs are adequately nourished and all metabolic waste products removed,
can we be healthy and productive and our body function properly. The optimal regulation of circulation is a prerequisite for ensuring good levels of health and fitness.
