At Align Chiropractic we adjust the spine as well as the extremities to insure the body can function as it is intended to do. Dr. Johns practices a diversified technique when it comes to chiropractic adjustments.
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization Rehab (DNS)
Dr. Johns utilizes the principles of DNS to teach our patients proper movement to decrease the possibility of re-aggravation of an injury or further injury.
Our brain creates movement programs that control human posture, movement and our ability to walk. These movements are largely established during the first critical years of life. Therefore, the “Prague School” emphasizes neurodevelopmental aspects of movement in order to evaluate and correct dysfunction of movement patterns and associated syndromes.
Dr. Johns utilizes principles from a number of different soft tissue treatment techniques to manipulate the soft tissue of the human body. We treat a number of different conditions in our office that are associated with muscular imbalances. The ability to combine these techniques allows Dr. Johns to provide the most apropriate treatment to address your needs and condition.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
Another soft tissue technique utilized in our office is IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization). This is the use of a metal tool to treat muscular components of injuries and other disorders. Dr. Johns again has studied a number of different techniques including Graston and FAKTR protocol to devise the best approach to treat every condition. Every patient is different and will respond differently to different types of treatment which is the reason that we provide a wide variety so that we can provide the best care for your individual needs.
