INTENSIVE DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
This technique is not just about relaxation; it is for the person who requires a more intensive
massage. Deep tissue and trigger point therapy will help with your chronic muscle tension
and relieve even the deepest layers of muscle tissue and fascia. This massage offers relief from
tight, “knotted,” sore muscles. It is ideal for athletes, body-lifters, and people who are
physically active throughout their day.

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
This technique is based on the application of manual pressure to sensitive spots called trigger
points. Trigger points can be caused by any trauma at any age including accidents and sport
injuries, as well as any repetitive action connected with an occupation or hobby.
30 or 60 minute therapy $50/85
Customized massage to indulge, renew and relieve the demands put upon the body during
pregnancy. Specifically placed support cushions are used in this service to protect both mom
and baby - for second and third trimesters only.

STRESS RELIEF CHAIR MASSAGE
Rejuvenate yourself with a concentrated massage focused specifically on your neck, back
and shoulders. It will melt away the tension and relieve the stress.
15 or 30 minute therapy $15/30
Electrical muscle stimulation (muscle stim) is the use of varying voltage currents which are
applied in specific frequency ranges and intensities to increase circulation, repair damaged
tissue, strengthen muscle and increase muscle control. In addition, muscle stimulation can
decrease muscle spasm, pain, inflammation and edema. Many parameters of muscle stim can
be altered to achieve the desired effect. At Kinetx Chiropractic, we most often use low and
high volt galvanic, Russian stim and biphasic. With muscle stim, you will experience
anything from a light tingling sensation to a deep, muscle-pumping contraction, depending
on the setting of the machine and your individual need.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser is an advanced therapy with which photons, the basic units of light, are applied at
a wavelength appropriate to penetrate your skin and be absorbed in the underlying tissues.
Each photon transmits energy to power metabolic processes while synthesizing biological
materials like DNA, RNA, proteins, and enzymes needed to repair and regenerate your
damaged tissues. Cold laser dramatically speeds recovery, especially for conditions in the
acute stage (involving inflammation and/or spasm).
Tissues treatable with laser include; muscles, discs, nerves, cartilage, tendons, ligaments,
bursae and fascia. Cold laser also helps to decrease pain by direct modulation of
prostaglandins and nitric oxide, which are pain-inducing chemicals. Each treatment takes
about 3 minutes and the effects are immediate.
Therapeutic ultrasound is a form of deep heat. Treatment involves an applicator which
produces a high-frequency, inaudible sound. The goal is to promote circulation, break up
scar tissue and stimulate healing. You experience a very light, velvety warming sensation
with this physiotherapy. Gel is applied to the region receiving treatment and a metallic,
smooth applicator glides over the area involved. Therapy takes anywhere from 5-10 minutes.
Heat is applied to increase temperature. The effect of therapy is increased metabolism and
blood flow, decreased pain, and removed toxic bi-products. Moist heat works well to speed
healing with chronic conditions and also to warm an area prior to treatment. We recommend
that some patients use moist heat at home, prior to stretching, for added benefit. Never use
heat on a recent injury or exacerbation unless instructed to do so by a physician.
The goal of applying cold is to lower temperature. The effect of therapy is decreased
metabolism and circulation, decreased pain, and reduction of muscle spasms. Cold is applied
to acute conditions (recent injuries) and exacerbations (flare-ups) to slow the inflammatory
process during the first 24-48 hours and relieve pain. New advancements in cryotherapy
incluce compressive cryotherapy which can effectively reduce edema.
Spinal manipulations (adjustments) to correct subluxations (joint dysfunctions) are what
distinguish doctors of chiropractic from any other type of health care professional. The term
“adjustment” refers to the specific force chiropractors apply to vertebrae (bones of the spinal
column) that have abnormal movement patterns, are out of alignment or fail to function
normally. Although the emphasis is on the spine, chiropractic can benefit almost any joint in
the body, from the rigid joints of the skull, to the toes. The objective of chiropractic
adjustments is to reduce joint restriction. In doing so, there is increased range of motion,
reduced nerve irritability, reduced muscle spasm, reduced pain, and improved function.
Because your nervous system correlates 100% to the function of the vertebrae that make up
your spinal column, adjustments improve upon many of your bodily functions. The
chiropractic adjustment is a well controlled thrust applied to a vertebra for the purpose of
correcting its position, movement, or both. We choose from many techniques, varying from
gentle to high intensity, dependent upon age, the specific condition being treated and needs
of the patient. Examination and diagnosis determine which techniques will result in the
greatest benefit. Initial treatments are directed towards decreasing pain and promoting
healing, with the ultimate goal of improving function and mechanics. There is no therapy or
profession that corrects segmental joint motion as effective as chiropractic.
Flexion Distraction Spinal Manipulation
Flexion Distraction is a chiropractic manipulation for the lower back and pelvic region. A
specialized table allows for gentle, controlled, distractive force to open the spinal segments.
Through the use of a rhythmic, pumping motion, the joints are stretched along the spine.
Flexion Distraction is used at Kinetx for the actue stages of care because of the soothing, deep
stretch felt in regions of high compression. Spinal motion and circulation are improved and
often times, instant relief experienced. www.coxtechnic.com
Many people benefit from added support to the feet during long work days and athletic
activities. Problems such as flat feet, plantar fasciitis, ankle and foot pain or repetitive sprain
benefit directly from custom orthotics. Wear and tear on the feet means wear and tear on the
knees, hips and spine. We use The Orthotic Group for custom made inserts and complete
footwear. We have several support and sport-specific materials that range from everyday
inserts to running or golf specific products. To diagnose your biomechanics, you will need to
undergo functional testing and assesment. This method of analysis provides much more
information and accurate construction into your orthotic than traditional casting. www.
Manual Applied Therapy
Manual therapies are used on most of our patients. Manual therapies are treatments which
are performed by a doctor or therapist, who uses their hands to benefit your joints or soft
tissues. The goal is to improve or correct function, relieve pain, increase range of motion, and
speed healing. The applications are highly controlled with respect to depth, rhythm, and rate.
A few examples are Nimmo, joint mobilization, active release technique, Graston Technique®,
trigger point and myofascial release.
Most of our patients are stretched by a doctor during their visits. Our Exercise Specialist will
prescribe a stretching postural routine to perform at home, as well. The benefits of stretching
are to improve muscle function, balance the distribution of muscle forces, enhance posture
and decrease pain. The number of repetitions, type of stretch, and location are dependent on
your individual need. Combined with chiropractic manipulation, physiotherapies and
exercise, stretching dramatically enhances speed of recovery and long-term outcomes. Two of
Kinetx's favorites are Post-Facilitative Stretch and Post-Isometric Relaxation.
Core muscles lie deep within the torso, attaching along the spine, pelvis and shoulder blades,
and are the foundation for all bodily movement. We use a variety of techniques to train the
core muscles with respect to speed, strength, coordination and in terms of co-activation using
multiple muscle groups. Most of the therapies are reproducible in your own home so you can
continue your program after discharge. We focus your core training here using MedX
Abdominal Isolator equipment, stability balls, floor exercises and medicine balls.
Neuromuscular Re-education training
This type of exercise builds the foundation of a healthy spine. Our therapies focus on getting
your muscles and joints to work together more efficiently and in proper patterns to protect
your spine through fast, deliberate reaction to everyday stress. We use the patented ATM-2
clinical system, advanced pressure biofeedback exercises, stability board training and body
blades, just to name a few.
Our facility is equipped with cardiovascular and fitness equipment to get you started in
building overall strength. Our therapeutic exercise programs are built with dumbbells and
resistance cables and are customized to either get you back to your normal routine or help
build a basic starter program at home. If you are interested in either beginning or modifying a
gym program, we’re here to help.
Sports Performance Enhancement
From the competitive athlete to the weekend warrior, we have a program for you. We modify
and improve your athletic interest from the ground up so you can excel, become more
efficient and reduce the likelihood of injury. Our comprehensive programs address your
neuromuscular coordination, reaction time and core strength through specialized
rehabilitation, improved spinal stability and nerve function using chiropractic, specific
movements patterns and postural enhancement. You’ll leave our program with a personalized
home program, dietary modification and access to pharmaceutical grade supplements to leave
your competition behind. Please have a written log of your athetic activities and include a
detailed, full week food intake and supplement diary at your first appointment.
Our rehabilitative programs are built around posture. We firmly believe that proper posture,
whether it be during physical activity, walking around the house or working at the office, has
a great impact on the longevity of your spine. Imagine walking around all day while leaning
forward 20 degrees… well, any deviation from ideal places extra stress on your body. You get
the point. Our exercise programs will strengthen your posture and minimize the possibility of
your problem returning after you leave us. And, you’ll notice you sleep better, walk taller and
have more energy.
