Chiropractic Techniques

Your doctors at Cherry Creek Spine and Sport Clinic understand the relationship between the musculoskeletal system and our unique ability for the body to move and function! Bones provide the structural framework for the body. Muscles provide the physiological mechanism to allow motion of the body. Muscles contract and relax to move bones at the joints. This allows us to run, lift, bend, twist, etc. A skeletal misalignment (bone or joint) often relates to a functional problem for the soft-tissues (muscle, tendon, or ligament), requiring a combination of treatments. An accurate understanding of dysfunction allows for an accurate recommendation for correction. Complete resolution of these musculoskeletal conditions often requires integrating different types of therapies, depending on the source of tissue dysfunction. The integration of Active Release Technique (A.R.T.) for soft tissue conditions along with specific chiropractic adjustments for bone and joint structural mis-alignments, allows for a more quick and complete healing process. Long term corrections of these common conditions often require implementing physical rehabilitation to retrain, retone, and recondition injured or overworked musculoskeletal structures. You must change your actions to change your results! Cherry Creek Spine and Sport Clinic only implements modern, research based chiropractic techniques. Only the safest and up to date techniques will be used to treat your healthcare condition.
