By taking quick action to diagnose and treat these injuries, you can save yourself weeks or months of discomfort and pain. At Downtown Chiropractic Inc., we offer quality chiropractic care for treating muscle or soft tissue injuries that cause neck, shoulder, or low back pain. A visit to your Albuquerque chiropractor will enable you to benefit from the following services and more.
Quality Chiropractic Care
As neck, shoulder, and low back pain issues often stem from misalignments in your spine, we offer chiropractic techniques that help correct spinal misalignments to alleviate pain and promote healing. Our corrective techniques are safe, non-invasive, and drug free. Dr. Michael S. Maggio, your Albuquerque chiropractor, has ample experience in dealing with spinal adjustments and spinal decompression, benefiting each one of his patients with his expertise.
The Cox Distraction Technique, aka Flexion/Distraction, was specifically designed for providing low back pain relief. Dr. Maggio utilizes a special table for performing this technique. This table facilitates the application of manual adjustments to specific areas of your spine in order to alleviate pain and discomfort.
Dr. Maggio is also versed in Active Release Techniques (ART) to treat injured muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. ART has been highly successful in alleviating neck, shoulder, and low back pain caused by musculoskeletal injuries as well as pain caused by carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, knee injuries, tennis elbow, and other conditions dealing with muscle overuse.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we use massage therapy to help sooth tense muscles, reduce inflammation, and alleviate musculoskeletal pain. Our treatments are all personalized to suit your individual needs. Massage therapy improves blood circulation to injured areas so they can heal quicker. It also helps to restore mobility and range of motion.
We’ll teach you corrective exercises that you can do at home to strengthen your core muscles and help prevent future injuries. Rehab exercises help keep your spine in balance to improve your overall health and well-being.
Once you’re on the road to recovery, we’ll help you evaluate your lifestyle to pinpoint areas that need improvement in order to keep you healthy long term. Depending on your current lifestyle, we may offer nutrition counseling to promote healthy eating habits and exercise tips to help strengthen your body and keep you fit. We’ll also encourage you to change habits that are detrimental to your health such as smoking or alcohol use.
