Advanced Chiropractic of Grove City
Multiple services are provided at Advanced Chiropractic.  We believe it is essential to provide many services in order to help each person that walks through our doors for care.  The services we offer are:
  • Chiropractic care 
    • The chiropractic adjustment - also referred to as manipulative therapy - involves moving a joint beyond active range of motion, but not beyond the range of motion that the joint is designed to move.  You will often hear a 'popping' or 'cracking' noise during a chiropractic adjustment, as the joint is being manipulated.
  • Soft tissue techniques
    • Soft tissue techniques help to reduce trigger points found in muscle, to break down scar tissue and help improve range of motion.  Soft tissue techniques are often used as a supplement to a manipulative therapy.  If indicated and combined with chiropractic adjustments, you're problem will be resolved in no time! Depending on results from your initial examination, our doctors may use their hands or one of our instrument-assisted soft tissue techniques to manage your complaint.



  • Electrical muscle stimulation
    • Electrical stimulation uses an electrical current to cause a single muscle group to contract.  By placing electrodes on the skin in various locations, the electrical stimulation recruits the appropriate muscle fibers.  Contracting the muscle fibers through this method helps to strengthen the affected muscle.  Various settings enable the treatment to be specific for the severity of the condition, as well as to control for patient comfort.  In addition, electrical muscle stimulation promotes blood supply to the area of treatment.

     

  • Intersegmental traction
    • Intersegmental traction (IST) can be implemented to mobilize the spinal column while gently stretching ligaments and muscles and promoting the health of intervertebral discs.  IST also helps to increase essential fluids for intervertebral discs, increases blood flow and oxygen to ligaments and muscles, ultimately allowing for improvement of balance, strength and mobility.

     

  • Rehabilitation
    • Rehabilitation programs can be useful for those who want to improve their activities of daily living as quickly as possible.  When combined with chiropractic manipulative therapy, healing time is typically reduced.  Often, at home programs are suggested by our doctors to keep you well.  The goal is to maintain the functional gains that you have achieved throughout your treatment plan.  Each program is individualized, helping to address each person's specific needs and concerns.
  • Radiological services
    • At our location, we may feel that it is clinically indicated to perform x-ray services if you are a new patient or if you have a new complaint.  We take x-rays to reveal the internal structure and to examine the alignment of the spine.  When reading an x-ray, we are concerned about potential underlying disease processes and disorders such as degenerative disc disease, arthritis, abnormal development, bone spurs, tumors and spinal curvature.
