SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Secrest Family Chiropractic of Scottsdale, Arizona, is actively promoting its advanced treatments for extremity care. "Although we are a chiropractic clinic," said Dr. Daniel P. Secrest, DC, "our services extend far beyond traditional chiropractic treatments. For those who suffer from pain or inflammation due to injuries and other issues, our extremity care offerings present many viable solutions," added the chiropractor.
One popular option for those who have incurred soft tissue injuries is kinesiology taping. This controlled-action taping technique employs an elasticized tape in to support the healing of injured soft tissue around the body, but particularly in the extremities. The colorful tape is made out of 100% cotton and can be fully submerged in water after having been applied for a minimum of one hour. The tape, which lasts for up to two to four days of continuous wear, helps to reduce inflammation and control pain, which helps to speed up the healing process. It's commonly prescribed for sprains, strains, fibromyalgia, tendonitis and a variety of other conditions. "Kinesiology tape also increases blood flow to affected areas and promotes lymphatic draining, which is why its use is popular among Olympic athletes," said Dr. Secrest, DC.
Patients of Secrest Family Chiropractic can also avail themselves of the Koren Specific Technique, which is also known simply as KST. A form of applied kinesiology, it involves the use of an ArthroStim adjusting device to perform precise adjustments by introducing force and energy to targeted areas. In doing so, this technique may correct misalignments in discs and bones while alleviating pressure on nerves. "With KST, we methodically analyze the body's structural system to determine which areas are out of position. We further target affected areas with a muscle testing and then perform corrections with the ArthroStim device," said the chiropractor.
The practice offers yet another effective treatment for extremity care: the Graston technique. A form of instrument-assisted soft tissue and scar tissue mobilization, it relies on the use of specialized stainless steel instruments and therapeutic exercises. This technique is commonly used to detect and treat areas of the body that are affected by chronic inflammation or soft tissue fibrosis. It was originally developed for professional athletes and is often used by the chiropractor to assist those who have incurred soft tissue injuries. "We've found that the Graston technique allows for faster treatment and recovery while helping patients maintain optimal range of motion," said Dr. Secrest, DC.
