Treatments for Auto Accident Injuries at Mandarino Chiropractic, P.C. in Staten Island
Chiropractic Care: Regular chiropractic adjustments with Dr. Mandarino provide effective pain relief for a variety of conditions. He provides patients of all ages with a non-surgical alternative to healing pain and injury. Various techniques are used at the practice in order to remove pressure from spinal nerves caused by vertebrae misalignment.
Spinal Decompression: Spinal decompression therapy is done mechanically using the Chattanooga traction table at our Staten Island clinic. The spine will be stretched and re-positioned in order to relieve the pressure within your spinal discs. The manipulation and stretching of your spinal joints also works to free trapped nerves, reduce pain, restore your body’s range of motion and realign your spinal column.
Physical Therapy: Physical therapy is a non-invasive therapy that addresses problems in the discs, joints, nerves, tendons, muscles, tendons, and ligaments in addition to working with sports injuries that cause pain, weakness and stiffness. The objective is for the patient to regain pre-injury levels in all aspects of their physical fitness and to prevent any future injuries from taking shape.
Rock & Kinesio Taping: Kinesio tape is a high quality elastic athletic tape that is designed to stay in place during strenuous exercise without irritating the skin. Kinesio tape works with your body as you perform daily activities or sports regiments. This is because the elasticity in the tape follows the same level of elasticity found in your skin and muscles. Kinesio taping works to promote healing and improve sports performance.
Lightforce™ Laser Therapy: Laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless, low level laser. The laser stimulates damaged tissues, promotes natural healing in the body, and provides relief from pain and inflammation. Laser therapy is a proven technique used across the world. It is extremely popular as it provides effective pain relief without the need for surgery or medication.
Massage Therapy: Massage therapy plans are tailored to each patient. Techniques may include stroking, tapping, kneading, vibration, friction, compression, rocking and different forms of pressure to the muscles. During a session, some specific motions and vibrations can be applied with mechanical devices. Oil, lotions and powders are also used to reduce friction.
Graston Technique: Graston Technique uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to detect and effectively address scar tissue. These instruments are used in conjunction with therapeutic exercise. They also allow Dr. Mandarino to locate the cause of chronic pain and treat the specific area.
Vibration Plate Therapy: Vibration plate therapy works in conjunction with other therapeutic services to provide patients with optimal health and wellness results. Vibration plate therapy allows a patient’s muscles to react against the vibration plate machine’s movements by contracting muscles, stretching tendons, increasing blood flow and oxygenating blood.
