Although the main method of treatment is the spinal manipulation, Dr. Jackson also uses other therapies to treat his patients. The following is a brief description of some of the most common therapies Jackson Chiropractic has to offer.
Therapies performed by Dr. Jackson include:
Ultrasound therapy This therapy uses either very high-energy or low-energy sound. This device emits focused sound waves that penetrate deep into body tissue. Sound waves relax muscles, alleviate pain, and reduce inflammation in the area of involvement.
Muscle Stimulation This therapy delivers a painless electrical current through the patient’s skin to specific nerves. The current produces mild heat that works to relieve stiffness and pain and helps to improve mobility. It may be used to control acute pain and chronic pain.
Traction/Spinal Decompression This therapy involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving back pain and/or leg pain by reducing the pressure on the nerve roots.
