Chiropractic Care

We use several forms of treatment for our patients at Pollard Chiropractic. Depending on the patient, sometimes multiple forms of treatment are required at our state-of-the-art chiropractic clinic in Kent, WA.

here are the treatments offered for our patients:

CHIROPRACTIC

Chiropractic care has been around for over 100 years now. It is a proven conservative method of treatment that is safe and effective at reducing pain. Chiropractors are considered musculoskeletal experts who help treat joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. By restoring proper alignment of joints it can help improve range of motion, decrease muscle tightness, take pressure off nerves, and diminish pain. Chiropractic care even works on the extremities. All the treatment we provide has been backed by science to help reduce pain and get patients back to the activities they love.

GRASTON

Graston is a technique used to address the soft tissue component of injuries. It helps to break apart myofascial adhesions which improves range of motion, reduces pain, and decreases healing time. By using the Graston Technique, we are able to loosen up tight muscles and fascia that are contributing to a patient’s injury. It also brings fresh blood to damaged tissues, which helps with the healing process, making it perfect for athletes and patient’s involved in car accidents.

MASSAGE

Massage works through applying pressure to the muscles and stretching the soft tissues. It is a great option for those who have been involved in car accidents, are experiencing pain, or are pregnant. During a car accident, whiplash is a common injury which occurs by overstretching tissues beyond their normal capacity and can lead to muscle strains and ligament sprains. This can cause a tightening of the tissues and creates pain. Massage helps to loosen tissue hypertonicity and decrease pain. With pregnancy, there is increased weight in the front of the body due to baby and this causes increased pressure in the low back

REHABILITATION SERVICES

Rehab is a key element in reducing patient’s pain and ensuring that the pain does not keep coming back. Our rehabilitation specialist will take patient’s through a variety of homecare exercises and stretches to help stabilize, strengthen, and establish proper joint range of motion. This is an integral part of the recovery process as it not only helps our patients improve at a faster rate, but also gives people the tools they need to avoid similar injuries in the future.

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture seeks to release the flow of the body’s vital energy or “chi” by stimulating points along 14 energy pathways. Scientists say the needles cause the body to release endorphins, the natural painkillers, and boost blood flow and can even change brain activity. It can be great for conditions such as back pain, arthritis, digestion, anxiety, women’s health, and migraines.

CRYOTHERAPY

Cryotherapy is used for a variety of reasons including: pain relief, swelling reduction, decreasing inflammation, athletic recovery, weight loss, and boosting mental clarity. It works by having a patient stand in the cryo chamber, pumping in cold nitrogen gas to get temperatures as low as -180 degrees Fahrenheit. This acts like a giant giant ice pack for your whole body.
