Chudy Chiropractic Clinic
We will perform a full consultation and examination to diagnose your injury and present you with options for treatment, rehab and recovery.
Diagnosis: We offer onsite x-ray capability as well as several diagnostic tests to help determine the cause of your pain and the best way to go about treating it.
Rehab: To help speed up the recovery process, as well as stabilize the injured area, we use several different exercises and modalities (theraputic machines). Ultrasound, hi-volt, interferiencial, muscle stim, Kinesio Tape, massage therapy, and active range of motion techniques are used to release/remove adhesions and scar tissue formation in the injured area.
Sports Chiropractic: In addition to the standard rehab techniques used in clinics, we adjust the injured area and the joints around it (shoulder, knee, ankle, elbow, hip, wrist.)
Adjustments create an increased range of motion, help to stabalize the injured area, increase movement of fluid inside the joint, and relax tight muscles that attach to the bones.
Sports Chiropractic works with the bones, muscles and surounding soft tissue structures for a complete treatment of your injury.
Regular exercise, stretching, and strengthening is essential for injury prevention.
We provide instructions for different exercises and demonstrations of proper technique to avoid injury.
Regular chiropractic adjustments even when pain-free can help create/restore normal range of motion, flexibility and balance.
A recent study on pain-free chiropractic patients found an increase in: Peak heart rate, max aerobic capacity, quad strength, lung volumes, agility, balance, speed of reaction, and sense of knowing where your body parts are without looking (proprioception) - the patients experienced an 11% increase after 6 weeks of care in these listed areas and a 16% increase after 12 weeks of care.
Immediately following neck adjustments an increase in muscles strength was noted for the
Pec Major, Deltoid, Psoas, Tensor Fascia Lata, Adductor, and finger muscles.
In a subjective study, dancers were evaluated before a performance to see if they needed an adjustment and not told the results. They then performed and self-rated their performance. Those who rated themselves lower were found to be in need of an adjustment.
