Therapeutic ultrasound (micro-massage and heat) can be beneficial in treating both blocked milk ducts and mastitis as it can help to open the ducts to reduce pain and swelling and increase circulation to improve the flow of milk.
Enjoy a quiet and relaxing 30 minutes of gentle compressive leg massage, a great add on before or after your chiropractic or massage treatment. Compression massages has been shown to decrease muscle tension and inflammation, Increase range of motion and flexibility, increase circulation, and reduce swelling and water accumulation. This treatment is safe and effective for pregnant people and post C-section to help with related swelling and discomfort.
Graston and Cupping
Graston is a soft-tissue technique using rounded stainless steel instruments to mobilize and release scar tissue and adhesions that may be restricting normal motion and function by getting into the tissue at this fascial/fiber level.
What conditions can it be used for?
Graston can be used to treat almost any soft tissue condition, some of the things that respond best to Graston treatment are:
◆ Plantar Fascitis
◆ Rotator Cuff tears / sprains / strains
◆ Hamstring sprains / strains
◆ Myofascial trigger points
◆ Limited shoulder and chest wall mobility following mastectomy and breast cancer treatment.
◆ Tennis and golfer’s elbow
Myofascial Cupping is used much in the same way as the Graston technique to break up facial adhesions and fibrous scar tissue to realign muscle tissue to function optimally. However this gentler technique of lifting and separating the tissue layers offer more decompressive forces than direct contact.
Is it painful?
Most patients report that the initial treatment is slightly uncomfortable and that subsequent treatments are comfortable and non-painful. Each patient’s experience is different. This technique is always fully discussed and demonstrated prior to each treatment, and the expected outcomes discussed with each patient on a case-by-case basis.
Active Release Technique
ART® is a hands-on myofascial release technique through movement based massage It is great for treating problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. When scar tissue, muscular and fascial adhesions build up in our tissues the muscles become shorter and weaker. This tension on tendons causes tendonitis, or compression of nerves leading to reduced range of motion, loss of strength, pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness. I use my hands to evaluate this tissue and treat it by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
Electrical stim is another way to relax muscles that is less invasive than the more hands on muscle work above. This technique works by sending stimulating pulses across the surface of the skin and along the nerve strands. The stimulating pulses help prevent pain signals from reaching the brain during the treatment, and can also help stimulate your body to produce higher levels of its own natural painkillers, called "Endorphins" for more lasting relief. Think of it as rebooting the signal a painful tight muscle is sending your brain.
Rocktape is a brand of rehabilitative kinesiotape that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. RockTape helps to alleviate pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin, which is ideal for acute injuries as well as help prolong the benefits of manual therapy after treatment.
Unlike athletic tape, RockTape still allow the joint or tissue in question to move through it’s full range of motion while giving it stabilization and proprioceptive support, and can be worn for up to a week at a time. I use this in conjuncture with your treatment plan, and has seen success with use in treating knee and shoulder pain, low back instability and postural fatigue, as well as belly taping for pregnancy.
