Spinal adjustments have been shown to boost immune function because they serve to correct the spinal misalignments that cause neural dysfunction. Neural dysfunction stresses a body out, which may lead to a weakened immune system and lowered response to a foreign body, such as the cold virus. A chiropractic adjustment isn’t the only way to increase your immune function. Regular exercise is also important when it comes to immune health because it serves to improve blood circulation, which in turn kickstarts the release of immune system substances into your body.
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is a noninvasive treatment that involves delivery of shock waves to injured soft tissue to reduce pain and promote healing. According to Jonathan T. Finnoff, D.O., medical director for Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine at Mayo Clinic Square in Minneapolis, ESWT is a viable option to consider for many patients who presnet with chronic tendinopathy that hasn't responded to more-conservative treatments. Often difficult to treat, chronic tendinopathy is characterized by localized pain and pathological changes to a tendeon. The condition affects athletes and nonathletes alike.
Kinesio taping is a rehabilitative procedure of applying tape externally on the skin in certain configurations around muscles so as to manipulate soft tissues, and thus unleash the body's natural healing powers and aid in the temporary relief of joint and muscle pains. This technique has recently become quite popular with everyone from young to old, suffering with heightened muscular tension and discomfort, as it has commonly been seen on professional athletes like James Harden and LeBron James. With the proper patient assessment and right taping methodology, Kinesio taping is one of the safest, non-invasive, pain-free, and effective ways to provide support for muscles and ligaments that also boasts the benefit of prolonging the potency of an in-person clinical therapy session. It’s extremely wearable in that it does not prohibit physical movement in any way as well as long lasting and waterproof. The high success rate of Kinesio taping treatments combined with its ease of process have led to a versatile implementation of it across all different kinds of medical conditions including orthopedic and neuromuscular cases.

One treatment that has these wonderful healing powers is cupping. The cups are generally made out of glass or bamboo, and placed on the back, housing heat and suction inside the cup onto the skin. This process causes the skin to rise up into the cup and to provide a deep tissue massage. This method functions to promote blood circulation and flow of energy in the body that works to relieve pain and muscle discomfort. Furthermore, cupping therapy effectively drains toxins, calms inflammation, and enlivens nervous systems. If you are suffering from constant headaches and digestive disorders, cupping can be helpful in encouraging the body to recover. Dr. Min is an expert practitioner with ample knowledge in prescribing this medical application of cupping so you are in good hands.

Depending on the patients symptoms, some patients are required to take an x-ray. For instance, if the patient has sustained a traumatic injury, auto accident, as a bone may be broken or a joint may be dislocated, x-ray would be taken to help the doctor determine weather he can further treat the patient himself, and also an idea of where to adjust the spine.
The chilling cold can make our muscles contract and tense up, sensitize nerve endings, stiffen up our bodies, and produce joint pain. That's why it's important to wear layers and to regularly take warm showers or baths to warm up our bodies. But depending on our age, prior injuries, and sustained bad postures, many of us require more specific attention of professional treatments.
Dr. Min's chiropractic procedure might just be the cure you seek. Sessions available include massage therapy, physical therapy, cervical and spinal manipulation, and electrical muscle stimulation. These various treatments can effectively reduce the burning aches in your muscles and joints, and improve your body mobility and long term physical strength. Specific pain areas like in the neck need special expert attention because of its critical function of supporting the full weight of the head. Conditions of discomfort and irritation in and around the neck area can be common these days as a result of unhealthy habits like extended sitting and overly harsh and repetitive movements as well as accidents. Rehabilitative neck adjustment and healing work on the surrounding shoulders can relax fatigued muscles and loosen up tight knots to relieve undue agonies of headaches, constant exhaustion, and stiffness. Dr. Min and his assisting staff members have years of experience, seeing various patient conditions. They attend to patients diligently and individually to deliver the kind of remedy that holistically benefits their muscular systems.
