Dr. Voitenko designs a course of treatment that may incorporate these Chiropractic Techniques:
Diversified – this is the most traditional form of Chiropractic adjustment and involves no special equipment as your spine is gently returned to its natural alignment
Thompson Technique (Light force Technique) involves a specially designed table that allows Dr. Voitenko to perform adjustments to the cervical, upper and lower spine.
Pro Adjustor (Activator Technique, light force technique) updated version of Activator
Physical Medicine may be part of Dr. Voitenko’s wellness protocol
Rapid Release Therapy – Rapid Release Technology is a high vibration therapy focused on relief of soft tissue problems affecting nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Soft tissue disorders are usually a result of overuse, injury or surgery.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation – electrodes are placed on the skin and light electrical pulses are sent through them to reduce inflammation, stop muscle spasms and relieve pain.
Infrared Therapy – Used to treat treating myofascial pain, fibromyalgia, joint pain, bruising, fractures, muscle problems, edemas, and wounds. It is used to treat wounds that have failed to heal or are getting worse. It uses infrared light wavelengths to accomplish the following:
- Increase circulation
- Increase lymphatic system activity
- Initiate the healing process (releasing nitric oxide from hemoglobin)
- Increase collagen production (essential to repair damaged tissues)
- Stimulate release of ATP (major carrier of energy to the cells)
- Reduce pain, stiffness, and muscle spasm.
Ionic Cleanse Detox Footbath – Our bodies are bombarded with 82,000 chemicals every week. Our bodies can become overwhelmed when combating these toxins and this can result in weight troubles, fatigue, skin problems, inflammation and a weakened immune system. Regular ionic footbaths introduce an electric current which released bonded toxins and waste from the cells and aids the cells to return to a healthy state.
Inferential current – sometimes referred to as TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation ), uses a safe, low level electric current to sooth painful joints and stimulate the body’s production of natural pain killers known as endorphins. Endorphins are a chemical that the body naturally produces. It’s what creates the “runners high” you may have heard of.
Therapeutic exercise and stretching are an important part of helping your body return to its normal, healthy state after subluxations have been removed and injuries have healed. Dr. Voitenko works with her patients to design a routine of gentle, yoga like moves and stretches that are easy to incorporate into a daily routine.
Neuromuscular re-education works on treating soft tissue injuries that are caused by overuse of a particular body part. The body heals these repeated injuries, but the resulting scar tissue leads to chronic pain, stiffness, tingling, numbness and loss of mobility.
During the time you have suffered unrelieved pain, you have adapted by altering movements that avoid pain. During your course of treatment, Dr. Voitenko’s techniques will remove the source of pain and retrain the body in healthy movement patterns.
