CHILDREN & EXPECTING MOTHERS

 

The care we provide can help ease the aches and pains associated with the growth spurts of children and the growth of a new mom’s baby bump.  Injuries in young children are commonly overlooked because they bounce back from pain so quickly. Unfortunately, these same injuries can lead to joint damage that may affect a child's development and performance in the future. At CSSC, we treat muscle and joint injuries in children of all ages to restore proper function for performance now and in the future.

Pregnancy can be an exciting and frustrating time for a new mom.  The growth of their baby can lead to new aches and pains a woman has not experienced before.  Our treatment at CSSC helps ease this pain through pregnancy in a safe, natural, and baby friendly way.

 

ELDERLY

 
 

At CSSC our care assists in the management of muscular and joint related changes that occur as we age. These changes can lead to reduced range of motion and decreased joint function, which can lead to increased pain levels. With our help these changes and their related symptoms can be managed to help you stay moving!

 

PERSONAL INJURY & WORKERS COMPENSATION

 
 

Both doctors at CSSC have experience working with personal injury and worker’s compensation patients.  Not only do we examine and treat your injuries,  but we advise you on the proper steps to take after your accident occurs.  A letter of protection is accepted in the case that an attorney is handling your case.  Call for a free consultation.  

Symptoms of whiplash often do not appear for weeks to months after the date of an accident.  Waiting too long to be treated increases the chances that an acute injury will become chronic.  

 

Common symptoms of whiplash

Stiffness and/or pain in the muscles and joints, decreased range of motion, muscle spasms, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, numbness in the hands or feet, shooting or burning sensations, abdominal pain, chest pain, loss of sleep, etc.  Any part of the body, including but not limited to the head, neck, back, shoulder, arms, and legs can be affected by whiplash.


HOW WE TREAT

 
 

Chiropractic Care

At CSSC, we believe that movement matters. Every part of our body has the ability to move too much or too little. Both of these situations can be detrimental to the joint structure and function. The doctors at CSSC use chiropractic adjustments as one part of their treatment to help restore and correct these movement abnormalities so proper joint function can be achieved and maintained. 


Active Release Technique

What is Active Release Techniques (ART) to Individuals, Athletes, and Patients?

ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.

Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.


How do overuse conditions occur?

Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:

•  acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc),

•  accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)

•  not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia).

Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.


What is an ART treatment like?

Every ART session is a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.

 

These treatment protocols - over 500 specific moves - are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART is not a cookie-cutter approach.


What is the history of Active Release Techniques?

ART has been developed, refined, and patented by P. Michael Leahy, DC, CCSP. Dr. Leahy noticed that his patients' symptoms seemed to be related to changes in their soft tissue that could be felt by hand. By observing how muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves responded to different types of work, Dr. Leahy was able to consistently resolve over 90% of his patients' problems. He now teaches and certifies health care providers all over the world to use ART.


Rehab

Rehabilitative Exercises & Education

CSSC believes that the education and prevention of an injury is just as important as the treatment of the injury itself.  By implementing individualized rehabilitative exercises into a treatment plan, our patients can experience faster improvement and prevent future flare ups or re-injury episodes.  The doctors at CSSC will assess the functional movement patterns of patients to determine what areas of the body require strengthening and which require stretching to help aid in the recovery process.  During this assessment process the patient will be educated on what movements, actions, and/or habits to avoid in order to prevent future injury episodes.  By combining our in-office treatment with patient education and rehabilitation exercises, we are able to get our patients back to doing what they love as quickly as possible.
