Silky Oak Chiropractic offers a number of services, all done by Dr Jan Jones – Chiropractor.
I use a combination of a number of techniques, ranging from Manual adjustments to Drop Piece and very light techniques.
One of the techniques I use is called Neuro Impulse Protocol (NIP) and Kiro Kids Adjusting the Child Techniques. This is a very light, specific technique and I have used it on my own children. NIP is the adapted version of the child technique into adults and includes Cranial work and arms and legs.
Thompson Technique is the primary drop piece technique I use where I use the table to give make a specific, light adjustment. The table does make a lot of noise in the process.
For manual adjustments I use a combination of Diversified and Ghonstead techniques, both very effective.
Ultimately I use a combination of these techniques for each patient and cater specific to his/her needs. My adjustments are rarely exactly the same at each visit. I believe the body is a dynamic, changing structure and not “stuck” in one position permanently.
I also do Soft Tissue work and includes massage, pressure release, strapping and movement release techniques
With the Mobile Chiropractic I bring my kit along. I have a portable table and work then in the comfort of your home or office.
This is ideal for people with tight schedules or people who simply cannot get out the office or have the time to drive for an appointment, wait and then drive back home.
Dry Needling is inserting a needle, similar to an acupuncture needle, into myofacial trigger points. It is very effective for breaking down “knots” in the muscle and relief referred pain patterns.
Although there is a lot of overlap with acupuncture points, it is not the same. At times Dry Needling can be unpleasant as reproduction of pain indicates the right location.
