Jackson Chiropractic Clinic has been a leader in the field of complementary care, including digital x-rays, infrared therapy, massage therapy and myofascial release. The clinic is proud to now offer Hot Stone Therapy.
Hot Stone Therapy involves placing smooth basalt stones, warmed in hot water, on the body. Your therapist will use the stones to knead and stretch the muscles in addition to the use of oils and lotions. Then the therapist will apply comfortable pressure to the stones driving the heat deeper into the body to aid in the relaxation of the muscles. This style of stone therapy is called Japanese Hot Stone Therapy.
Japanese Hot Stone Therapy allows the body to become more relaxed in a shorter time frame. Relaxation is achieved through the use of heat, combined with other massage techniques. The direct heat relaxes the muscles, which will make the massage more effective. The stones vary in size, the proper size for you depends on the body location. In the hour session, your knots, aches, and tension will melt away.
Jackson Chiropractic Clinic is proud to offer an introductory price for Hot Stone Therapy, so you can see the benefits for yourself!
If you have been in a motor vehicle accident you may have been hit from behind or the side. A low-speed collision (less than 10 miles per hour) can put forces 3-7 times the pull of gravity on your neck. This can cause ligament, muscle and tendon damage. Keep in mind symptoms from an auto accident may not appear for days, weeks, or even months after the accident.
When your tendons, muscles and ligaments are injured in an accident, they become the cause of symptoms such as pain, stiffness, and headaches. An additional danger is the formation of scar tissue in the injured area. Once scar tissue forms, the pain and stiffness can become permanent. Therefore we recommend a doctor supervised neuromuscular massage to help prevent the formation of scar tissues.
In order to keep from having future problems, care must be given to the spine, muscles, and ligaments. If you have been in a motor vehicle accident within the last 6 months we recommend a tension-alleviating doctor-supervised massage. This will certainly help your muscles and ligaments heal and repair. Repair physical body damage with a physical approach such as massage.
Keep in mind that the Minnesota state No-Fault Law has coverage to help you get your body checked out at no charge to you. This will help you receive the care you need.

This therapy is non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands-on spinal manipulation performed with the patient lying on the Cox table, a proprietary, specially designed chiropractic instrument. This table permits the effective administration of flexion-distraction and decompression adjustment and manipulation.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
This therapy is the gold standard for reducing muscle spasms and pain. Small amounts of electrical currents are sent through the muscles to make the muscles work. This causes the muscles to use stored energy. With the stored energy being used the muscles are forced to relax.
The Kinesio Taping Method is felt to cause physiological effects on several body systems. The systems affected by the body are thought to include the circulatory/lymphatic, neural, muscular, and fascial systems, as well as the joints. Kinesio Taping is currently being used by therapists to change muscle tone, move lymphatic fluids, correct movement patterns, and improve posture.
An ancient method of applying heated cups to the skin, which cool and create a suction that draws the skin up into the cup, and causing the blood vessels to expand. Used to treat pain and soreness, it can also be recommended for other uses.
A versatile therapy that uses very high frequency sound waves (1 million cycles/second) to reduce swellings, thus promoting healing in the soft tissues. The wave energy works on a cellular level to help tissues return to normal.

It is imperative that the supplements be of high quality, since they are not regulated by the FDA. It is also important to discuss the use of supplements with your health care provider.
