The bread and butter of chiropractic has to be the adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulative therapy. Adjustments are what set chiropractors apart from other practitioners within the health field. With comfortable, light force corrections to the spinal and extremity joints, chiropractors realign the joints so they can function pain-free within their proper range of motions . Dr. Boss focuses to not only find subluxations (misalignments within the spine) but to also correct these subluxations giving the patients relief from painful joint restrictions, muscle spasms, and soft-tissue adhesions. In combination with complimentary services such as nutrition, kinesio-tape, and physical therapy, Dr. Boss can keep you pain-free and at your optimal health.
Non-surgical Spinal Decompression
A breakthrough in back pain relief and restoration, non-surgical spinal decompression has become a popular therapy used for many neck/back ailments such as herniated or bulging disks, sciatica, canal stenosis due to degeneration, and many others. Due to daily lifestyles and Earth's gravitation your body can naturally undergo wear and tear to the discs or "shock absorbers" within your spine. Spinal decompression takes aim at gently tractioning out your spinal column, creating a negative pressure within the discs, and alleviating nerve irritation around the discs. Osage Sports & Family Chiropractic has a brand-new, state-of-the-art spinal decompression table that digitally controls the mechanical force needed for spinal decompression therapy. Be sure and ask if this would be the right approach for you!
Following your course of treatment, physiotherapy is often recommended to keep you in tip-top shape. Physiotherapy is vital to maintaining long-term health by training your muscles to work in synergy, while keeping your spine in proper alignment. Osage Sports & Family provides you with many passive therapy services such as interferential muscle therapy, intersegmental traction, therapeutic ultrasound, as well as a host of active care therapies such as cervical posture pump, thera-band tubing exercises, core stabilizing rehab, and even spine-sparing stretches. This easy-to-learn rehab can be taught by Dr. Boss so that you may utilize these tools outside of the office as well.
Kinesio-tape is a unique preventative/treatment method that allows for support and stability of your muscles and joints without affecting the range of motion or circulation. In fact, kinesio-tape has been used with the greatest athletes in the world including many USA Olympians. Dr. Boss has utilized his experience and post graduate certifications in Kinesio-taping to help patients of all ages with muscle support, joint swelling reduction, low-back/hip/foot/shoulder/elbow stability, and even speeding up the healing process of bruises. The kinesio-tape methods have helped countless athletes as they pursue their goals of optimal health and have established themselves as the "go-to" taping method for preventative health and post-traumatic sports injuries.
