Correction of articular dysfunction, including the spine and peripheral joints, frees interference that hinders the optimal functioning of the nervous system. This therefore helps to facilitate the natural self-healing process of our body.
The chiropractic approach does not only bring you relief, but also prevents you from developing symptoms or pain related to a dysfunction of your spine or other joints. This means that you can consult your chiropractor for preventive care.
Chiropractic treatments are very effective for treating your joint injuries. What is a joint? A joint is the jonction between two bones. This includes the entire spine and pelvis, as well as all peripheral joints (shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles, etc.).
Did you know that you can also consult your chiropractor to treat muscle injuries? Dre Claveau uses a specialized technique called Active Release Technique.
A chiropractic session with Dre Claveau usually starts with a period of relaxation with heat pads that allows your muscles to relax.
Thereafter, the regions are treated using chiropractic adjustments (manipulation/joint mobilizations) and work on the muscles and other soft tissues (ligaments, tendons, etc.). Note that we also have tools that allow a chiropractic adjustment without the cracking sound. This intrument is called the Activator.
Depending on your condition, it sometimes recommended to combine chiropractic treatments with massage therapy in order to obtain the most benefits from your treatment.
Active Release Technique:
The purpose of this technique is to manually break the adhesions and restrictions in muscles, tendons and ligaments as well as at the level of associated nerves. The patient performs a specific movement as the chiropractor makes proper contact on the soft tissue. This tension breaks the scar tissue and allows the muscle to heal while maintaining flexibility.
This specific technique for pregnant women focuses on the balance and optimal function of the pelvic bone to facilitate pregnancy and childbirth. In addition, this technique promotes optimal positioning of the baby’s birth.
This is a gentle chiropractic technique without the "cracking" sound using a percussion instrument.
