Activator Assisted Adjustments
This is a hand-held, spring-loaded instrument-based manipulation/adjustment protocol. Instead of the manipulating/adjusting forces being delivered by hand, force is generated with the small Activator that delivers a lighter, but quicker, thrust than can be delivered by hand. Activator can be used as a primary treatment protocol for all patients or a selective method for patients who may not desire manual adjustment or where manual adjustment may be contraindicated.
Soft tissue Therapy
Dr. Ramey uses everything from Graston tools to Trigger Point Therapy. Some muscles need to be stretched and relaxed, and myofascial release and trigger point work are excellent for this. Other muscles are chronically weakened and need to be retrained to help posture and joint function. Targeted, individualized rehab exercises address these. Other tissues are chronically tight with myofascial adhesions and/or scar tissue. These can include areas of past trauma, areas with repetitive motion injuries, and/or postural stresses. Graston Technique, utilizes specialized tools and techniques that remodel the injured and painful tissues to get lasting relief from chronic tightness and pain.
Rehabiliation and Exercise
Our rehabilitation room at Wellspring Chiropractic Center allows Dr. Ramey to offer one on one rehabilitation instruction to help you get healthy and feel better. Rehabilitative exercise under the supervision of a doctor, targeted towards your specific physical needs, is quite different from working out with a trainer at a gym. While we encourage all our patients to work out regularly, as your doctor of chiropractic Dr. Ramey has an intimate understanding of your musculoskeletal strengths and weaknesses, and he will recommend exercises that address those unique concerns.
Kinesio Taping is designed to provide muscle, fascial, and joint support without reducing the range of motion needed in the healing process. The tape itself is a breathable, waterproof tape with a medical-grade, heat sensitive adhesive. It is easily tolerated and can last for 3-5 days without re-application, even in the water. The applications of K-Tape are varied, but can help with muscle strains, golfer’s elbow, shoulder pain, bruising, improving posture, and the list goes on.
Standard Process Nutritional Supplements
Given proper nutrition, the human body has an amazing ability to heal itself. To do so, we need to eat a healthier diet, exercise, and take high-quality supplements made from whole foods. Standard Process nutritional supplements can address dietary deficiencies, promote healthy bodily detoxification, address respiratory issues, support liver functioning, and more! Because no two issues are exactly alike, we offer individual nutrition evaluations that are designed with your specific needs in mind.
MediHerb Nutritional Supplements
Featuring several varieties of herbal therapies, MediHerb nutritional supplements provide whole body benefits — including increased immune system function, increased white blood cell health, lymphatic system support, and more — for both long-term and short-term issues, like seasonal changes or upper respiratory infections.
Whether you’re walking, standing, or on the move, your feet are the foundation of your body. Sometimes, though, the shape of your foot or an injury can affect the angle at which your foot strikes the ground. If severe enough, this can cause pain in the foot, as well as in the legs, low back and other areas of the body. Stabilizing your foundation is an important part of chiropractic care. If you have an imbalance in your feet, your chiropractor may suggest orthotics. Orthotics can treat issues like bunions, pain in the lower back, shin splints, hip pain, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, and more.
We use state of the art 3D Laser Scanning to customize your orthotic. To learn more about what we do, check out their site.
