Treatments Offered

Here at Etzl Chiropractic, we have more in our tool belt than just adjusting. Read below to learn about the different types of treatments we offer. Your doctor will work with you to find a treatment plan that is custom tailored to your needs and preferences.

Diversified Adjusting

Also referred to as manual, or hands on adjusting, this is the most common form of adjusting we do in our office. We use a quick but controlled thrust to restore normal joint motion.

Drop Table Adjusting

This type of adjusting utilizes a part of the chiropractic table called the drop piece. This is very commonly used when treating the low back and pelvis, but can be done in other areas of the spine as well. This method uses less force than Diversified adjusting.

Activator Adjusting

The Activator is an instrument that can be used to deliver very specific and low force adjustments. This is the most gentle form of adjusting that we offer, yet is still very effective in treating both spinal and extremity complaints. 

Electric Stimulation

Electric stimulation, or e-stim, is a pain relieving modality. The use of electric stimulation relieves pain by causing the release of endorphins, natural pain killers made within your body. This is commonly applied prior to getting adjusted if your provider decides it is the right fit for you.

Spinal Decompression

We have a spinal decompression machine in our office that is very effective in relieving symptoms in patients that have conditions like disc injuries, arthritis and stenosis. It produces gentle and controlled traction to take pressure off of your nerves and discs.

Moist Heat Pack

The use of moist heat packs helps to relax your muscles, making the rest of your treatment more comfortable and effective. This is commonly used with electric stimulation at the beginning of your appointment.

Soft Tissue Mobilization

Soft tissue mobilization includes massage, stretching, trigger point therapy and fascial decompression. Our attention to soft tissue therapy sets us apart from other Chiropractors. By addressing your muscles, fascia, ligaments and tendons in addition to your joints, we are able to provide longer lasting relief of your symptoms.

Kineseo Taping

Kineseo Tape is a stretchy type of medical tape that can be applied to different parts of the body. It functions to provide extra biomechanical support to the area of complaint. It can also decompress areas of soft tissue injury.

Therapeutic Exercise

Your doctor may prescribe you with a home exercise program to assist in your treatment. Often times pain can be caused by a muscle imbalance. Therefore, strengthening weaker muscles helps to relieve pain and prevent it from returning.

Nutritional Counseling

Compared to medical doctors, Chiropractors receive over 10 times more classroom hours on the topic of nutrition. Feel free to ask your doctor about nutrition and how it may pertain to your health. 

Ergonomic Advice

Repetitive microtrauma is the root cause of many complaints we see in our office. In other words, doing the same thing over and over generates a lot of stress over time. That's why it is important to make sure your workspace is set up optimally in order to reduce the amount of stress you put on your body on a daily basis. Your doctor may give you advice on how to best set up your workspace to avoid excess strain.

Therapeutic Ultrasound

Therapeutic ultrasound can be very effective in treating soft tissue injuries such as sprained ankles or rotator cuff injuries. It uses soundwaves to help reduce inflammation and promote the healing process.
