Techniques and Tools
At Advanced Spine & Rehab we use a wide range of techniques and tools to give you the health you deserve. Based on your report of findings Dr. Rutkowski will determine what will work best for your rehabilitation. For instance we do manual adjusting and instrument adjusting in our office. Both are chiropractic adjustments, but some patients prefer one over the other.
Here is a list and brief description on some of the different techniques we do here in our office.
Torque Release Technique- Torque Release Technique (TRT) is the most up-to-date Chiropractic technique available. TRT is a tonal approach to Chiropractic in that it stimulates your Nervous System in such a way that it will release and reduce tension, assisting your body to self-correct.
The Integrator adjusting instrument offers a precise, specific and gentle adjustment. This means your adjustment won't feel like a sledgehammer and no twisting is involved.
Chiropractic Biophysics- This is where we shine, Chiropractic BioPhysics is a structural rehabilitation technique used when the curve of the spine is lost. 'CBP' equipment is used to help reconstruct that curve and give relief to the pain in those areas.
Diversified- Diversified is considered the most generic chiropractic manipulative technique and is differentiated from other techniques in that its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction.
Motion Analysis (Palpation)- Palpation is used to assess the texture of a patient's tissue (such as swelling or muscle tone), to locate the spatial coordinates of particular anatomical landmarks (e.g., to assess range and quality of joint motion), and assess tenderness through tissue deformation.
Spinal Biomechanics-The Study of mechanics of a living body, especially of the forces exerted by muscles and gravity on the skeletal structure.
Thompson- The Thompson Chiropractic Technique involves using a mechanical drop mechanism with an adjusting table, requiring less adjustive force.
Traction- Traction is a therapeutic method to relieve pain by stretching and realigning the spine. Placing a stretch on the spine separates the vertebrae and helps to relieve direct nerve pressure and stress on the vertebral discs.
