EDMONDS, Wash., Oct. 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Optimal Health Chiropractic and Massage is expanding their Edmonds, Washington, practice to include new therapies, acupuncture and chiropractic services under one roof. The chiropractic office brought on Dr. Malena Nguyen into the practice. Dr. Nguyen specializes in Active Release Therapy, sports injuries and Graston Technique. They also have added Kirby Grey to the staff who specializes in acupuncture. They will be available for no-charge consultations (typically $40) to answer any questions about how their services can help heal area locals’ aches and pains.
Dr. Daryll Marshall-Inman of Optimal Health Chiropractic and Massage is eager to introduce his newest staff members to the community. "Both Dr. Nguyen and Kirby Grey bring important experience and skills that will complement our existing chiropractic practice. With the addition of an on-staff acupuncturist, we can refer our clients in-house to our own specialist to further personalize their treatment plans. Dr. Nguyen's experience with Active Release Therapy and the Graston Technique will allow us to better serve our patients with auto accident injuries and sports injuries."
Active Release Therapy (ART) is a chiropractic therapy that begins with a comprehensive hands-on physical examination. The practitioner uses specialized movements to massage the body's soft tissues and release tension. ART can be used to treat a variety of acute and chronic issues including muscle and tissue tears and pulls, accumulations of small tears, and damage from not getting enough oxygen to the tissues.
Graston Technique also addresses soft tissue problems by employing assistive stainless steel instruments. Used by chiropractors, athletic trainers, physical therapists and other highly trained practitioners, the Graston Technique can be used to evaluate and treat the areas of the body exhibiting signs of chronic inflammation or soft tissue fibrosis. Combined with appropriate therapeutic exercises, the Graston Technique has been shown to significantly improve patient outcomes.
According to Dr. Marshall-Inman, the expansion of the practice will bring great benefit to his patients. "We treat a wide variety of conditions including whiplash and back pain resulting from auto accident injuries. The addition of these highly specialized techniques will allow us to further personalize each patient's program of care and offer them the very best treatment possible for their condition. To be able to offer all of these services, including spinal rehab, acupuncture, massage and chiropractic care under one roof is a testament to our dedication to providing premium service and convenience to our patients. We also work closely with 28 area medical doctors to coordinate care for our patients."
