Chiropractic Care in Merritt Island
Chiropractic care is a wellness approach that revolves around the spine and joints. During chiropractic adjustments, your chiropractor literally adjusts your spine back into an optimal position, correcting abnormalities, imbalances and injuries. Without chiropractic care, spinal misalignment (subluxations) may cause back pain, joint pain, weakness, poor posture, mobility loss, and other debilitating symptoms. Our goal is to locate the source of your misalignment or injury, and correct it.
Every case requires a slightly different approach. At our chiropractic clinic in Merritt Island, Dr. Grimm uses a variety of different techniques and methods to adjust each patient’s spine.
Traditional Chiropractic Care – Our clinic provides traditional chiropractic care to address each patient’s specific concerns. Our approach focuses on specific spinal adjustments, decompression therapy and spinal alignment.
Spinal Mechanical Traction – Mechanical Traction is a form of decompression therapy that relieves pressure on spinal discs, joints, and nerves. Dr. Grimm utilizes spinal mechanical traction to treat herniated discs, sciatica, degeneration disc disease, pinched nerves, and many other back conditions.
Trigger Point Therapy – Trigger point therapy refers to a technique our chiropractor utilizes to directly focus on trigger points, or specific spots causing pain.
Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) – This technique is a specialized and comprehensive technique which Dr. Grimm received his Advanced Proficiency in while practicing in Oxford, England. SOT focuses on the relationship between the sacrum and occiput. Patient’s suffering from TMJ disfunction, migraines, sciatica, neck and shoulder pain, fatigue and nervous disorders can benefit from SOT.
Chiropractic Manipulative Reflex Technique (CMRT) – CMRT is a soft tissue technique comprised of SOT protocals used to treat organ functions. Patient’s suffering from hiatial hernias, heart burn or acid reflux can benefit from this technique.
Active Release Techniques (ART) – A therapeutic way to manipulate the soft tissue and treat muscle and tendon pain, ART adjustments are designed to relieve tension and inflammation that restricts movement and causes pain. ART is very benficial to patient’s with shoulder or rotary cuff issues.
Vibe Plates – This service uses whole body vibration plates that use the power of electrical stimulation to contract and relax all your muscles, improving balance, circulation, posture, and spinal stability.
