Manual therapy focuses on treatment of the musculoskeletal system and can be performed in a variety of different methods. Here are a few examples of manual therapy treatment methods used at RYSE Chiropractic in Moss Bluff, LA (Lake Charles area).
Our doctor is certified in both FAKTR and RockBlade. These therapies include treatment utilizing metal instruments with a variety of shapes to treat the myofascial system of the body. Often times the myofascial system can get adhesions and trigger points which can sometimes be painful and cause limited range of motion of joints. IASTM is a very effective treatment method for many musculoskeletal conditions in the body.
Cupping therapy is an ancient technique that has been modernized and is used to treat many musculoskeletal conditions in the body. Cupping therapy works by creating a suction on the skin which helps to decrease pain, speed up tissue recovery, provide a decompressive effect to the surrounding tissues, and increase blood flow. There are two methods of cupping used in our practice, static and dymanic.
Static Cupping - While this treatment method is performed, the cups are placed on the skin and remain stationary throughout the treatment. This method is usesful when a targeted treatment is preferred.
Dynamic Cupping - While this treatment method is performed, the cups are placed on the skin and are moved around the tissue to treat a larger surface area and help break down adhesions in the myofascial system. Often times this treatment method is used while the patient performs ranges of motion or exercises to help increase the effectiveness of the treatment.
Percussive massage therapy is a treatment method that utilizes a massage gun controlled by the chiropractor or assistant. This therapy provides rapid pressure to the myofascial system to help decrease pain, relax the musculature, speed up muscle recovery and break down adhesions. The vibrations from percussive massage therapy travel deep in the body to provide a therapeutic effect both at the surface of the skin and deep within tissues.
Myofascial release therapy uses pressure and stretching techniques to help release trigger points and other myofascial dysfunctions within the musculoskeletal system. Trigger points are stiff areas of muscle within the myofascial system that are not functioning properly and can often be detected by the doctors palpation during an examination. Trigger points can cause pain and restricted range of motion in the area they are located. Myofascial release therapy is very effective in releasing trigger points and restoring proper range of motion caused by dysfunction of the myofascial system.
WOW! Thank you all so much for helping me out.. I was in so much pain before I showed up to RYSE this morning and once they were done with me I felt like a new man! I am now a believer and big time supporter of RYSE. THANK YOU!
I highly recommend RYSE Chiropractic to anyone who is searching for a chiropractor. The atmosphere is very welcoming and nonjudgmental. The office is adorable, relaxing, and always clean. I have always experienced short waiting room time and Dr. Savoie is the one who brings you back to the room. So, you do not have to wait to be seen once you are called back. Which makes the experience even better. Dr. Ryan Savoie is extremely attentive and easy to talk to. He will be sure to address all your concerns and he goes above and beyond for his patients. I always leave feeling so much better and way more relaxed. It is nice to have a doctor that you do not dread going to. I look forward to the visit each time! Hands down the best possible experience every time! I am so glad that this is the practice I decided to go with. I am thankful for the amazing care I receive at RYSE.
Words can't express how amazing the experience is here. By far the best massage I've gotten hands down. I'm hooked. I go at least once a week. Definitely recommend the Restore with a little Boost. Her hands are heaven sent. She can pinpoint your problem areas even if you don't realize they are there. I leave refreshed, rejuvenated and feeling like I have a new body every single time. I also had my first ever chiropractic experience here and omg I have a new neck, back and hips!! So if you are looking for an all around luxurious, peaceful and siren experience book both services, trust me you will not regret it. Completely worth every dime!!! AMAZING!!!!
Ah-may-ziiiiing! One of the best massages I have had. I get them often due to my line of work. The staff is professional and friendly. They put you at ease. The facility was easy to find, very clean, and nicely decorated. I will definitely be going back… very soon.
