Soft Tissue Treatments

What sets us apart from other Chiropractors, and wellness clinics?  We use variety of soft tissue techniques such as  Active Release soft tissue technique,  cupping and Fascia mobilization.

Soft tissue ( Ligaments, Tendon and joint capsules, muscles) injuries can be very debilitating and hard to heal. Soft tissue injuries result in inflammation, swelling; the body responds to this inflammation by laying down scar tissue (cross fibers on the tissue) in an attempt to stabilize the affected area. However the side effect is that scar tissue decreases the joint range of motion, alters the biomechanics of the joint, and as a result the function alters; if untreated, changes the structure.

Dr.Gilak is one of the few female Newport Beach chiropractors has been practicing ART for the past 12 years.

Spine Manipulation- Moblization

Practitioners such as Chiropractors perform spinal manipulation by using their hands. The goal of the treatment is to relieve pain and improve physical functioning. In Some cases, spinal manipulation is contraindicated, cases such as Osteoporosis in which case we either use Activator or mobilization of the spine instead of greade4 spine manipulation.

Kinesio Tape

​In addition to traditional Chiropractic are and in order to improve many conditions we need to re-educate muscles, Muscle re-education expedites healing and prevent future injuries.

Kinesiotaping is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as, tissue re-education prolong the benefit of manual therapy. Kinesio tape is a latex-free wearable tape that can last for up to 7 days and treat the variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological conditions. Kinesio tape is a great addition to rehabilitation.
