Physiotherapy is "adjunctive" or additional treatment to "hands on" Chiropractic manipulation and massage, which may also be used to help to resolve an injury or condition. At Bull Run Chiropractic Clinic we may use ice, ultrasound, electrotherapy, low level light therapy (laser, infrared) or athletic taping when appropriate to reduce pain, swelling, inflammation and muscle spasm. Heat may be used with degenerative, stiffening conditions. We have equipment to perform gentle flexion-distraction, a type of segmental traction on areas of the spine when there is signs of disc compression. We also help patients to learn home routines of stretching using assisted isolated stretching (AIS) and other methods to increase flexibility.
