Techniques Practiced at Lee Chiropractic Wellness Center in Torrance CA

Diversified technique is considered the most generic chiropractic manipulative technique that is involved in a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust. Its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction.

Gonstead technique is recognized throughout the global chiropractic community as one of the safest method of chiropractic care. It’s including in but not limited to visual examination, motion and static palpation, instrumentation, and full spine x-ray to determine what condition(s) is related to the specific vertebra of spine.

The Pelvic Block techniques include the use of cushioned wedges, which are placed under each side of the pelvis along with gentle maneuvers.  This allows gravity and changes in mechanics.

Low back injuries that are treated with pelvic blocking use a series of non-force treatments with monitoring and evaluation.

Activator Method uses the Activator Adjusting Instrument instead of by-hand adjustments to give consistent mechanical low-force, high-speed clicks to the body. It utilizes a leg-length analysis to determine segmental aberration.

The Graston Instrument assisted Soft tissue Mobilization (GISTM) technique is a soft tissue technique designed to mobilize, reduce and reorganize fibrotic restrictions in the neuromusculoskeletal (NMS) system. The objective of treatment with GT is to initiate controlled micro-trauma in specifically targeted tissues.

The myofascial release technique is a form of soft tissue therapy used to treat somatic dysfunction and resulting pain and restriction of motion.  It is accomplished by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage, and stimulating the stretch reflex of muscles and overlying fascia.

Trigger point release is also referred to as self-myofascial release. A trigger point is a way to describe muscles that are tight or taut and are typically painful. Release means relaxing the taut muscle by various ways such as massage or compression. When you learn to locate trigger points, you can work on the area to relieve pain, relax the muscle and increase blood flow to the muscle.

Post-isometric relaxation is one of the most effective methods of stretching the muscles, involving the use of their natural mechanisms. Muscles have a natural self-defense, which constricts their tension during the sudden moment of stretch. It is design to achieve results in improving flexibility and/or increasing range of motion.

Pt modalities such as Ultrasound, TENS, Electrical stimulation, Heat and Cold packs are used to decrease pain, decrease acute edema, muscle relaxing and promote tissue healing by increasing blood circulation and nutrients to the area.

These therapeutic exercises are designed to connect and activate your central nervous system to a specific inhibited muscle group.  The purposes of these exercises are to increase range of motion of the joint and surrounding soft tissues, increase muscular strength, develop coordination through control of individual muscles, and promote relaxation and relief of tension as well.

The goals of Rehabilitation are mainly restoring normal activities of daily living (ADL’s). It is also used to improve the automatic stabilization response and improve strength in key muscles & overall physical fitness.

Proper nutrition contributes to a healthy life.
