ServicesCHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT A Chiropractic Adjustment is typically what you think of when you think about chiropractic care. So, what is a Chiropractic Adjustment and what does it do? A Chiropractic Adjustment is a method used to restore proper function and range of motion within a specific joint of the body. This technique also helps to alleviate pressure on your spinal nerves and discs that cause pain. Chiropractic Adjustments also help to restore blood flow and drive out inflammation in and around the affected joints. Nashville Chiropractic Adjustment MYOFASCIAL RELEASE TECHNIQUE Myofascial Release Technique (MRT) is similar to instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), however it is applied by hand, rather than through the use of a tool. Myofascial release technique speeds up the recovery of soft tissues 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, bursitis, overuse injuries, or misuse injuries that stem from sports or occupational movements. Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Nashville Chiropractor 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.

ADVANCED EXERCISE PROGRAMMING Along with all the services and therapies that we offer here at Rush Chiropractic Center, Dr. Rush specializes in advanced exercise programming. The key to staying out of pain and avoiding injury is to build resilience in the muscles that are coordinating your movement. Since each individual moves differently, each individual will need a program designed just for them. There is no cookie cutter approach to personalized care. We don’t do that here. PROPRIOCEPTIVE NEUROMUSCULAR FACILITATION (PNF) Active stretching or Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) stretching involves the use of a towel/strap/band or another individual. This type of stretching is defined as alternating contraction and relaxation of both agonist and antagonist muscles through a static stretch followed by an isometric contraction of the muscle that is being stretched. The use of Active / PNF stretching was first used in clinical rehabilitation settings but is now seen in other many other settings as well. This type of stretch is seen with being the most beneficial in regards to improving flexibility. This type of stretching is one of the fastest ways to develop flexibility and is more effective than passive stretching. It also has the added benefit of strengthening the muscles that are being isometrically contracted and is typically more comfortable that static stretching. CUPPING Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. At Rush Chiropractic Center, we have altered the technique to treat musculoskeletal problems in a more modern way. We use our cupping therapy to treat muscles, tendons and ligaments directly, bringing blood flow to the area to promote healingAdditional ServicesSports Chiropractor
