LIC Chiropractic protocols are individualized based on the objective of the patient. At LIC Chiropractic patients are never rushed and the entire 30 minute treatment is rendered by the doctor. Whether it’s immediate pain relief or a “spinal tune-up”, a treatment includes a gentle spinal adjustment; stretching of tight, pain-generating muscles; and release of pain-radiating myofascial trigger-points.
We treat acute neck & back pain, chronic back pain, headaches, radiating pain down the arm or leg, myofascial pain and thoracic-outlet syndrome.
Spinal Adjustment – A gentle, therapeutic intervention delivered by hand designed to restore motion to restricted spinal joints. This therapy enables you to move more easily and fully, and with less pain.
Flexion-Distraction – A manual therapy requiring a specialized Chiropractic table designed to decompress spinal discs by reducing pressure inside the disc. This is an effective treatment for bulging and herniated discs in the lower back.
Manually-Assisted Dynamic Traction – A unique therapy designed by Dr. Ippolito. The treatment requires a “spinal harness” which is used to decompress spinal joints and discs in the neck.
Myofascial Release – A manual therapy designed to release myofascial trigger points in unhealthy muscles. Myofascial trigger points are “knots” that develop in muscles due to strain, repetitive stress, poor posture, and skeletal imbalance. Treatment includes direct pressure on the trigger point and various stretching techniques in an effort to eliminate the trigger point and restore the muscle to its normal resting length.
