At MN Spine and Sport in Woodbury, Dr. Schreiber’s chiropractic practice is focused on the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal pain and injuries, with an emphasis on the structure and function of the human body. We specialize in movement impairments and restoring function. In other words, we get you back to your life as fast as possible! It may take a little work, some home exercise, and lifestyle change, but our results speak for themselves!
After injuries or repetitive strain, joints may lose some of their range-of-motion, and even become painful. Muscles may spasm, tighten or develop trigger points. Our chiropractors in Woodbury, MN, utilize chiropractic manipulation and/or mobilization (light rhythmic motion) to restore normal joint function and motion. Once the restricted motion is resolved, painful and stiff muscles tend to relax.
Our technique employs gentle to moderate pressure and/or shallow thrust to restore optimal motion. An adjustment (or manipulation) is sometimes accompanied by a “popping” noise, which, according to the latest research, results from the formation of a gas bubble within the synovial fluid, a slick fluid that allows the bones to move past one another with ease.
Did you know that almost all joints that move can be mobilized or manipulated (including the neck, back, shoulder, elbow, wrist hand, hip, knee, ankle, feet, and even the jaw!)? During your initial exam, our doctors will determine if chiropractic manipulative treatment is appropriate for you and your condition. While it may be appropriate, it is not our only treatment and, if you prefer, we have the ability to “tone down” the force applied or utilize other treatment methods.
To date, many studies of chiropractic adjustment have proven its effectiveness, safety, and high levels of patient satisfaction. In 1994, the U.S. Agency for Health Care Policy deemed this technique as the gold standard for treating low back pain. Since the agency’s initial findings, more research has been conducted on neck pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, and physical rehabilitation. Each of the study’s findings supports the role of chiropractic care and its manipulative procedures.
