When it comes to eliminating pain some people need more than just an adjustment to decrease and/or eliminate their pain. When joints are moving properly and muscle tension is decreased, improvement rates can greatly accelerate.
At Altrui we combine passive techniques (i.e. cupping and Hypervolt) with active range of motion to address the entire muscle and not just the parts that hurt. We will start small and increase time and intensity as the body positively responds. Some common treatments we perform are cupping, use of the Hypervolt, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization "muscle scraping", and pin and stretch of muscles. Depending on the technique, patient might have some redness or even soreness, but these side effects should be gone after 24 hours unless otherwise explained by Dr. Britt
