After discussing your individual needs, Dr. Cancro, Dr. Langlois, or Dr. Panarello will use some or all of the methods listed below to treat your issues. These treatments, along with exercises, proper ergonomics, balanced nutrition and dietary supplements will work together to get your body functioning at its best — so you’ll feel your best.
ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE
This state-of-the-art soft tissue technique treats problems within your muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. When your muscles and other soft tissues are overused, they can develop pulls, tears, micro-traumas, nerve impingements and can stop receiving adequate amounts of oxygen. As a result, you can suffer from a reduced range of motion, loss of strength and increased pain.

LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY
This type of therapy has been successfully used to treat acute and chronic pain, repetitive use disorders such as soft tissue strains and sprains, as well as reducing inflammation and enhancing soft-tissue healing.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) penetrates the skin and activates enzymes at the cellular level. It improves healthy cell reproduction and proliferation. Pain is relieved as a result of increased endorphins being released, which in turn strengthens the immune system’s response.

Covering all the organs in your body is a thin tissue called fascia. Fascia not only covers every muscle but every fiber within every muscle. So, when you injure a muscle, the fascia around it can become short and tight. This stress can pull on connected parts of your body, causing pain in areas you wouldn’t have expected.
Myofascial Release treats these issues by releasing the uneven tightness in your injured fascia. To treat the areas, a series of stretches and relaxing the muscles will be repeated until your body is returned to its more natural alignment and posture.
KINESIO TAPING® METHOD
This rehabilitative taping technique, popular with many Olympic and professional athletes, provides support and stability to muscles and joints while also extending the soft tissue manipulation. This prolongs the benefits of your chiropractic therapy and the natural healing that takes place.
When Ultrasound is applied to your injured area, a vibration massages your muscles at the cellular level. Usually, you won’t feel anything but a small amount of warmth. This treatment decreases pain, increases flexibility and helps speed up the healing process. This treatment works together with your chiropractic adjustment.
Cox® Flexion-Distraction Technique
This painless, non-invasive procedure is excellent for herniated discs and painful, injured low backs. It allows us to gently stretch or bend your back in various directions while adding a gentle decompressive pressure to different parts of your spine.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
In this procedure, electrodes stimulate the muscles through the skin at the place of injury. It helps reduce pain and inflammation and speeds the healing process as well as safely strengthening muscles.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)
This advanced flexibility therapy is built on a series of stretching exercises. Developed as a rehabilitative therapy, PNF improves flexibility, strength and stamina as well as the range of motion in damaged or stiff muscles. It’s often used to treat lower back, neck and shoulder pain that is a result of poor posture.
