Treatment Options

Report of Findings

Dr. Meyer will study the exams and x-rays from your first visit and meet with you to discuss the results. If chiropractic is likely to help your condition, he will recommend an appropriate treatment program. After you have an understanding of your condition, you are ready to begin Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy (CMT) or adjustments and/or other physiotherapy modalities.


Adjustment

A specific force in a precise direction applied to a fixated joint, which will return bones to a more normal position and motion.  This is usually done by hand or occasionally a small instrument is used.  Our office is equipped with a state of the art adjusting table that has features to aid in the adjustment.


Electric Muscle Stimulation

A machine administers an electric current that is used on soft tissue injuries.  This small amount of current causes a slight tingling sensation and reduces pain, swelling and muscle spasm.


Traction

Traction can be administered by lying on a our intersegmental traction table.  This passive gentle rolling action is comfortable, increases mobility, restores elasticity and improves circulation of spinal fluids.


Hydrocollator Heat

Warm, moist heat packs applied to the surface of the skin relieve pain, relax muscles and are sometimes helpful before a chiropractic adjustment. They are especially helpful in cases of chronic pain and muscle tightness.


Cryotherapy

Frozen gel packs are used to numb painful areas and help relax muscle spasms. These cold compresses are used for acute injuries or flare-ups of chronic conditions. Initially for acute injuries, ice should be applied several times per day and home icing instructions may be given.

Testimonial

  • "I started seeing Dr. Meyer for severe hip pain that was caused by my poor running habits. I still remember walking around the exam room after the first adjustment. I laughed and told him that this was the first time I had walked without pain in a very long time. Follow up appointments have been equally rewarding. Dr. Meyer has adjusted my head/neck, relieving my headaches as well as helping me with jaw issues from years of grinding. Great personality, pleasant, thorough explanation of Care, and flexible availability."
