Dr. Rieke Treating Shoulder Pain

Chiropractic Care & Diagnostic Evaluation

Stress, tension, over exertion, improper mechanics and other factors may not allow the spine to move properly through its normal range of motion. This can result in minor displacements or derangements of one or more vertebrae and the surrounding soft tissue structures. Chiropractic aims to restore movement where necessary and ultimately restore neurological signaling to all effected tissues.  

Active Release Techniques® (ART®)

Active Release Technique provides patients and athletes with a targeted treatment of soft tissues (muscle, tendon, fascia, nerves). It is a hands on technique that restores muscular balance and reduces painful stresses. 


Over-used or pulled muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:

  • acute injury (pulls, tears, collisions, etc)
  • accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
  • not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia)

 

Dr. Rieke Demonstrates Core Strengthening for Low Back Pain

Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

Connective tissue throughout the body becomes shortened or chronically strained from chronically poor posture or altered mechanics. At Cross-Up, we use soft tissue instruments to reduce the myofascial tissue congestion that limits oxygen delivery to tissues and predisposes them to injury. 


Tools are used stimulate the body in static positions, as well as during exercises, in order to alleviate pain and restore proper function of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerve, and their surrounding environment.  Used in the form of

  • Gua Sha carbonite stone or steel tool
  • Rubber compression & floss bands

Rehabilitative/Corrective Exercise

Repetitive stresses to the body are often a result of unstable body mechanics. At Cross-Up, we provide patients with exercises to correct imbalance and create strength where it's necessary. Certain exercises may be specific to the office, but we send you home with others to continue your improvements at home.  

Massage Therapy

Tuesday Evenings from 4 - 9 pm. Our massage therapist works closely with Dr. Rieke to understand patients' specific needs. Massage Therapy pairs excellently with Chiropractic Care and helps to reduce pain, improve circulation, and decrease stress. Patients often report an overall feeling of wellness and comfort. Our therapist, Nataliia Dovgun, is highly certified and has trained in multiple countries. 

Vibratory Therapy for Muscle Recovery

Cupping

This ancient technique continues to grow in the contemporary practice of traditional medicine. At Cross-Up we like to utilize cupping for its soft tissue benefits. At Cross-Up we use it to

  • Promote vascular circulation
  • Promote lymphatic circulation
  • Reduce muscle spasm
  • Control pain
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Improve soft tissue glide


Vibratory Therapy

This form of therapy stimulates certain receptors that allow the muscles to relax more thoroughly. It is used to

  • Improve range of motion
  • Relieve muscle soreness and stiffness
  • Promote circulation
  • Modulate and control pain
  • Reduce swelling
  • Speed up warm-up and post-exercise recovery

Functional Taping (Kinesio-tape application)

Taping was popularized by the Olympics, but has many more applications for common conditions. It allows the body to respond to appropriate ranges of movement and provides nervous system input through its stretch properties. This is a great way to manage pain and assist performance due to its versatility and accessibility.

Foot Levelers Custom Orthotics

You may be wondering why a Chiropractor would prescribe orthotics. It's simple, your feet are your foundation and they impact the mechanics of the rest of the body system. Foot Levelers Orthotics are custom made based on a 3-D scan of your feet using pressure, topographical imaging, and a series of sophisticated calculations that indicate your stability. 


Most podiatry offices provide orthosis with a single large and hard correction to the inside of the foot, but Foot Levelers uses the more biomechanically appropriate 3 arch system. The 3 arch system addresses all 3, as opposed to 1, of the characteristic arches of the foot: transverse, medial, and lateral. These corrections offer a comfortable solution to poor foot mechanics and at a fraction of the cost of the traditional molds you may have been recommended. 


Cross-Up will offer you a free scan with a detailed report and let you decide whether pursuing orthotics is in your best interest. Learn more about how your knee, hip, and low back pain may be linked to muscle imbalances propagated by an unstable foundation.
