Conditions We Treat
A chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a safe and effective form of treatment. It is a highly skilled and specific force applied to a joint to restore full range of motion.
The sudden stretch of the tissue surrounding a joint can also release any adhesions or scar tissue and promote proper bio-mechanical function of the area. The ‘popping’ or ‘cracking’ sound that you hear is gas being released from the joint.
This allows for fluid to enter the joint and can promote nourishment inside the joint capsule. Adjustments are a safe mode of treatment and often give patients immediate relief afterwards.
Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique, in which fine solid needles (acupuncture needles) are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites, and stimulated manually or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system and/or the endocrine, immune systems, and pain syndromes.

Cherryhill Chiropractic has recently added cupping therapy to the clinic. Although cupping may be seen as a trendy fad in North America, this kind of Therapy has been used in Egyption, Asian, and Middle Eastern cultures dating back to 1550 BC.
This technique is used to relieve injured or sore muscles by bringing more blood flow, nutrients and oxygen to the damaged area. We use dry cupping at Cherryhill Chiropractic, which is actually a vacuum type technique to suck the skin up into the cup, this causes blood to flow to the injured area.
The therapy may leave some markings, which indicates that toxins have been released from the damaged tissue. These markings are not bruises but my have bruise like appearance.

IASTM is a Soft tissue Technique that uses hand held tools that clinicians use to treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction. We use this technique in combination with exercise and joint mobilization in order to produce any changes within the muscle.
This tool is designed to treat areas with soft tissue adhesions, chronic inflammation, or degeneration. It achieves this by breaking down fascial restrictions and scar tissue. This controlled microtrauma to the soft tissue is creating a local inflammatory response.
This response will facilitate a healing process within the area to actively reabsorb any scar tissue or any other excessive connective tissue that has been formed by your body.
This Process will help increase range of motion, decrease chronic inflammation, and increase overall function of the soft tissue.
Exercise has been proven to be a vital aspect of the rehabilitation process. Rehab for most injuries should involve active treatment. Here at Cherryhill Chiropractic we give our patients the tools and education in order to not only help recover from pain faster, but also to prevent re-injury and avoid further injury.
We also strongly recommend and often prescribe prehab as a preventative measure to keep your body performing optimally during exercise and everyday activity.
