Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic diagnosis may involve a range of methods including diagnostic imaging, orthopedic and neurological evaluation, length tests, functional tests, range of motion assessment and palpation.
At Hudson Spine, our Chiropractor co-manages cases alongside our medical staff and works with the Physical Therapy department to devise optimal treatment plans to help our patients transition from pain to wellness. Common conditions include joint pain of the neck, back, elbow, shoulder, foot, hand/wrist, heel, and knee, tendonitis, disc herniations, postural syndrome, pinched nerves, scoliosis, spinal stenosis, headaches, degenerative joint disease, sciatica, carpal tunnel, and whiplash. Some evidence based chiropractic treatments include manual therapy, joint mobilizations/manipulations, neuromuscular re-education, instrument assisted soft tissue techniques, mechanical traction, electric stimulation, ultrasound therapy, cryotherapy, and kinesio taping.
