What treatments might be best for you?

Soft Tissue Therapy
 

Soft tissue therapy is great for any pain that is a results of muscular origins. Soft tissue therapy allows the Dr. Guillemette to work through with his hand and scar tissue or knots that may have formed as a result of the injury. 

Chiropractic Care
 

Chiropractic care has the ability to help all sorts of conditions. The primary focus of chiropractic adjustments is to enforce mobility into joints. Research demonstrates that joints aren't moving well tend to increased pain responses and increased the progression of degeneration. Chiropractic adjustments helps maintain good mobility in those joints.

Fascial Scrapping

Fascial scrapping is typically done to break down fascial adhesions that are found in the muscular layers of our tissues. Scrapping uses medical grade stainless steel to tear fascia that is in the opposing direction of the tissues. It's very common to see your tissues becoming red after these visits. 

Electrical Stimulation

There are several different kinds of electrical stimulations. Some may be used for pain inhibition, while others may be used to help provoke muscular contractions.  Electrical Stimulation can also be very effective for patients with pain that is too intense to have high pressure or movement put on them. 

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy is a type of therapy that is usually done on muscles. The sound waves that are produced by the ultrasound device can be useful in helping to heal muscles pain and reduce chronic inflammation.
