At Creekside Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic care to our patients. Below is just a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our office.
Ergomonic Tips and Advice
Part of our comprehensive approach to evaluation and treatment includes "coaching" our patients on certain activities of daily living (ADL’s). This is a review of activities or exercises it may be best for them to avoid, or perform differently in order to avoid irritating their particular problem or condition. With this in mind we hope to help each patient achieve their goals for a lifestyle filled with all of the activities they enjoy most. Often times a simple modification in work place ergonomics or bending technique can make a world of difference! We acknowledge that every patient is unique, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our doctors and our patients.
Food is an often overlooked source for chronic aches and pains. Dr. Tislau and Dr. Petersen are state certified in nutritional counseling and can help you reach your health goals through incorporating dietary modification and supplementation if necessary. Whether your goal is less pain, healthy weight loss, or improved performance in competitive sports, we are trained to help by making specific recommendations on appropriate food choices and nutritional supplements. Do you know which vitamins and dietary supplements are good for you? Do you know how these vitamins and supplements interact with one another or with your prescription medications? Our physicians do, and they can provide a safe and structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Massage & Trigger Point Therapy
Another conservative treatment option that can effectively relieve musculoskeletal pain is massage therapy. Creekside Chiropractic and Rehabilitation provides therapeutic massage and muscular therapy which is targeted to treat the patient’s specific injury or condition. Therapeutic massage typically involves the manipulation of muscle and connective tissue using a variety of techniques with the goal of enhancing function, aiding in healing, decreasing muscle spasm, and promoting relaxation. Our doctors frequently incorporate massage, stretching, and myofascial release techniques into their chiropractic treatments.
Kinesiology Taping (Kinesio tape/Ktape)
Kinesiology taping (AKA Kinesio-tape, K-tape etcetera) is an elastic cotton tape that has many benefits and can be used in a variety of different applications. Most commonly this tape is used to decrease swelling and edema, increase proprioception, and in some cases increase stabilization of a specific body area. When appropriate, our doctors can develop a unique taping pattern to help reduce pain, promote optimal health, or in some cases improve the patient’s performance in his/her sport or competition.
