Chiropractors are physicians that have specialized training in the care of muscles, nerves, and especially joints. Chiropractic is a natural, non-drug, non-surgical means of treating a variety of health problems. Chiropractors can help in treating traumatic injuries to the body (such as auto injuries, sports injuries, and work injuries) as well as chronic problems (such as headaches, carpal tunnel, herniated discs, arthritic pain, TMJ disorder, postural strain, scoliosis and neck and low back pain.)
Your Portland Chiropractor is well-known for using ‘adjustments’ to help his patients heal. The adjustment is a quick, short stretch applied to joint that has become restricted in movement. The adjustment often releases a pop or crack, which is technically called a cavitation. This sound is like the sound made when someone cracks their knuckles. The adjustment helps to restore full movement, relax tight or spasmed muscles, reduce pain, break up scar tissue, and even improves nerve function.
Dr. Armans utilizes several chiropractic and soft-tissue techniques in her practice to address both acute trauma and chronic conditions. These techniques include but are not limited to: Diversified adjusting, Drop Table, Activator, Pin and Stretch, Gua-Sha, Ultrasound, Electrical Muscle Stimulation, rehab and exercise.
