  • Chiropractic Manipulation 
The intention of a chiropractic adjustment is to affect or correct the alignment, motion and/or function of vertebrae. Specifically, they are intended to correct "vertebral subluxations;" the term given to the signs and symptoms that are said to result from abnormal alignment of vertebrae.
  • Diversified 
Dr. Ciccone's Diversified Chiropractic technique is considered gentle and very effective.
  • Cox Flexion Distraction 
Flexion/distraction manipulation decompresses the disc by applying a gentle stretch or traction to the lower spine is used, usually in a series of repetitive slow movements without quick movements or thrusts. The procedure is often used for people with disc problems, but can also be used in other ways, such as to gently mobilize joints.
  • Traction 
Spinal traction is a treatment option that is based on the application of a longitudinal force to the axis of the spinal column. In other words, parts of the spinal column are pulled in opposite directions in order to stabilize or change the position of damaged aspects of the spine.
  • SOT (Sacro Occipital Technique) 
Patients seeing SOT practitioners can relax and know that they are in the best hands in chiropractic. SOT doctors understand your problems and use a systematic and comprehensive approach to chiropractic care.
  • Electric Muscle Stimulation 
The use of electricity (direct current, alternating current, or both) to treat muscle injuries. Electric muscle stimulation has been used to treat muscle atrophy which occurs when a limb is immobilized.
  • Ultrasound Therapy 
Ultrasound therapy uses high-energy sound waves (those above the range we hear) to help ease painful joints and muscles.
  • Cryotherapy 
Cryotherapy is a term that describes the application of ice compresses to reduce the temperature of tissues directly on or below the skin surface. Cryotherapy is an excellent way to reduce pain and muscle spasms.
  • Moist Heat 
Moist heat is frequently used in our office following a chiropractic adjustment. This modality helps to reduce muscle spasms in a deeply penetrating and soothing manner that is both relaxing and beneficial.
  • Manual Therapy 
Manual Therapies are not only considered to be of clinical importance, these modalities are also included in strategic initiatives to develop interdisciplinary practice, research and education.
  • Trigger Point Therapy 
Trigger point therapy is a form of therapy that focuses on trigger points in the body. These are not the same as the points used in acupressure, but are physical points in the body that cause pain and can be felt by touch. They are very common and are also commonly known as muscle knots.
  • Therapeutic Exercises 
The purpose of exercising with an exercise ball is to strengthen the neck muscles. When the ligaments of your neck have been damaged, the muscles must work harder to guide and direct your movements and also to re-establish stability. By exercising on a regular basis you will increase the strength, coordination and function of your neck as well as hold your adjustments for longer periods of time.
  • Myofascial Release 
The goal of Myofascial Release is to eliminate fascial restriction by elongating and softening the connective tissue. Myofascial Release is a highly interactive stretching that requires feedback from the clients body to determinate the direction, force and duration of the stretch.
  • Active ROM Exercises 
Range of motion exercises are also called "ROM" exercises. ROM exercises help keep your muscles and joints as healthy as possible. ROM exercises may be active or passive.
  • Post Isometric Relaxation Stretch 
Stretching a muscle immediately following its isometric contraction may incrementally restore range of motion.
  • Post Facilitative Stretch 
For chronic muscle tightness. Maximally stretching a muscle immediately following it's maximum contraction against a force. Restoring muscle length and range of motion.

Foot Orthodics 

(Sole Supports)

Sole Supports are the only custom orthotics available today based on a completely new paradigm (MASS position) that was developed to actually change foot posture and function during weight-bearing activities. The corrected (MASS) position of the foot is captured by a unique casting technique that utilizes a certain density of foam and a sequence of semi-weight-bearing impressions that emulate healthy stance-phase gait (gait-referenced casting). The lab positives made from this cast are never "cast-corrected" to arbitrarily lower arch height as is common in the industry. The resulting shell fits the shape of the foot like a glove and is machine calibrated to have the right properties of flex and rigidity based on the patient's weight, foot flexibility and activity level. The goal is to significantly limit pronation, facilitate supination and yet flex just enough for comfort. This custom level of rigidity/flex makes us unique in the industry and uniquely effective at improving foot function.
