Chiropractic focuses on the diagnosis and management of disorders arising from the neuromusculoskeletal system.

Chiropractors use a combination of manual treatments, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a complete history and diagnosing a patient, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment plan.

Chiropractic treatments at DCC can involve joint manipulation, soft tissue treatments (Active Release Techniques (ART®) and Graston Technique), medical acupuncture, rehabilitation exercise, Kinesiotaping®, therapeutic modalities, bracing and orthotics.

Chiropractors specialize in treating all regions of the body including injuries of the spine, hips, shoulders, knees, elbows, wrists, hands and feet, for both injury management as well as performance enhancement.

Active Release Techniques (ART ®)

ART® is state of the art soft tissue system that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. ART® was designed to target and remove soft tissue adhesions that lead to pain and dysfunction. 

Adhesions can be the result of acute injury (sprains, strains, bruises) or more commonly chronic repetitive motions seen in the workplace or as a result of intense training and competition.

An example of some of the conditions that can be treated successfully with ART:

  • Headaches
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Low Back Pain
  • Nerve Entrapments
  • Lateral Epicondylosis (Tennis Elbow)
  • Medial Epicondylosis (Golfers Elbow)
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Patellar Tendinosis (Jumpers Knee)
  • Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITB Syndrome)
  • Plantar Fasciitis
