Services & Techniques
At Legacy, our goal is to help you understand the cause of your pain and how to treat the symptoms with chiropractic care. Whether your back pain, neck pain or extremity pain is caused from a car accident, repetitive strain, the aging process, heredity, sports injury or other accident, our doctors offer the best options when it come to managing pain.
Chiropractic doctors look to restore balance in the body by realigning the spine with what we call "adjustments". Through day to day activities such as lifting, sitting without proper posture and so on, the spine's alignment shifts impacting the nerves that control all of the body's functions. By carefully examining the body, a chiropractor can detect these mis-alignments and work with you to fix them.
At Legacy, we provide advanced spinal correction and state of the art adjustment techniques to correctly align the spine toward its healthy resting position. With the ability to treat neck pain, headaches, and sciatica just to name a few, chiropractic care can help you become the healthiest version of yourself.
Massage therapy has a long history in cultures around the world. It is known to help relieve pain, rehabilitate sports injuries, reduce stress, increase relaxation, and address anxiety and depression.
Our clinic offers a multitude of options including but not limited to: deep tissue, aroma, sports, and neuromuscular. A perfect addition toward complete wellness or an hour of relaxation; we offer both!
Dry needling utilizes the body’s trigger points to better allow the body to heal.
Trigger points are sensitive spots in muscle (commonly called knots) that develop as a result of injuries, strains, or trauma. Usually part of a larger treatment plan, thin, sterilized acupuncture needles are placed on specific trigger points individualized to the patient to release chemical waste build-up-- often causing the pain. Once this block is removed, the body naturally increases blood flow and oxygen circulation to effectively mend any sort of aching.
The therapy itself loosens stiff muscles, eases joint pain, and speeds up muscle recovery. Perfect if you want to optimize performance or prevent current issues from becoming chronic.
Spinal decompression therapy aims to help patients who suffer from debilitating pain due to bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs. It can also be used for the pain management and treatment of many causes of sciatica, injured or diseased spinal nerve roots, and worn spinal joints.
The therapy itself works by gently stretching the spine to create negative pressure and space within the disc to allow disc fluid to move back into place. This creates an environment in which the spinal disc can receive more nutrients and heal itself quicker and more effectively. The ultimate goal of spinal decompression therapy is to relieve the patient’s chronic back, arm, neck, and/or leg pain by healing the source of the pain itself.
Electrical Stimulation Therapy
Electrical stimulation is a therapy we use in addition to chiropractic care. It works by sending mild electrical impulses through the skin to help stimulate injured muscles or manipulate nerves to reduce pain. In the context of muscles, the impulses cause the muscle to contract (flexing your bicep is a form of contraction), increasing blood flow and repairing injured muscles.
In the context of nerves, e-stim can block the pain receptors in the nerves from being sent to the brain with the ability to nearly eliminate the pain itself.
