Chiropractic care is important for people of all ages and activity levels. The human body is controlled by a very complex nervous system. It just so happens that the spine houses this nervous system and plays a crucial role in the function of it. Segments within the spine, known as vertebrae, are meant to freely move which allows us as humans to perform our everyday activities. However, these daily stresses can negatively affect these joints, causing them to become "stuck" or move less freely. This is where chiropractic care comes in! With our training, we are able to detect these "stuck" joints (known as subluxations) and gently adjust them back into their normal motion pattern. This often times is associated with a "cracking" or a "popping" noise which is a perfectly normal release of gas bubbles, much like popping bubble wrap.
Chiropractic care doesn't stop at the function of the spine though! It also involves the joints of the arms and legs, and most often, the musculature and soft tissues. As chiropractors, our extensive training allows us to treat each one of these areas to promote the best overall body function and health. The body is a fine tuned machine that heals itself, but just like your car, it needs maintenance! Let the doctors at Riverview Chiropractic Clinic help you, your family, or someone you know in need of our care! If you have any questions, concerns, or would like more information on chiropractic care, please contact us!
Graston Technique is a method of soft tissue therapy that uses stainless steel instruments to break up soft tissue adhesions. These adhesions can be a result of many factors including overuse injury, microtrauma, daily stresses, and posture. This technique is great for chronic conditions and has been shown to greatly improve functional movement patterns. Graston Technique is very useful in the treatment of athletic injuries, neck and shoulder tension/headaches, and overuse injuries of the arms and legs.

Kinesiology Tape is a flexible fabric tape that provides support while allowing the body to maintain full range of motion. It does not contain any form of medication, but rather helps decrease inflammation, bruising, and pain by gently lifting the skin. This allows the body to get rid of the excess toxins, leading to the natural healing process. Here at Riverview Chiropractic Clinic, we use the Rocktape brand. It is our choice of kinesiology tape due to its durability and overall capabilities.

Injury Rehabilitation and Prevention
The most crucial phase of injury recovery is rehabilitation and prevention of further or reccuring injury. Our training allows us to help correct mechanical patterns that led to injury in the first place. This phase of care is usually provided once the pain symptoms have been alleviated which often times makes patients think it is not necessary. However, it is important to promote proper posture and movement patterns to prevent the condition from returning. For more information on this subject, please talk with a doctor at Riverview Chiropractic Clinic!
