Greater Pittsburgh Joint & Muscle Center offers a full range of chiropractic treatments in order to improve your overall health. Our chiropractors focus on disorders of the nervous and musculoskeletal system and the negative impact it can have on your general health.
Common chronic ailments that are able to be remedied with chiropractic treatments include joint and muscle pain, headaches, back pain, symptoms of fibromyalgia and neck pain.
Subluxations occur when one or more of the vertebrae moves out of position, creating pressure on the nerves of the spine. This pressure irritates the spinal nerves causing interference with signals sent to the brain. Our chiropractic doctors are specialists in correcting these subluxations, usually through chiropractic adjustments
Spinal manipulations, a type of chiropractic adjustment, are frequently used in order to realign your back or hips to alleviate pain, increase strength and improve your body’s range of motion. These types of chiropractic treatments are often the best method to repair damaged tissue and joints without having to undergo surgery.
We also offer other therapies to help compliment recovery from chronic pain, which, when used in tandem with traditional chiropractic treatments, can have an even more positive effect on your health
Massage therapy has been proven to not only assist with relief from chronic pain, it has also been noted as a natural, relaxing way to reduce tension and stress. Our Greater Pittsburgh Joint & Muscle Center’s highly trained therapists offer a variety of massages techniques, each intended to produce a specific result:
- Swedish Massage Relaxing, rejuvenating and refreshing, Swedish massage is intended to relief mental stress.
- Trigger Point Massage Focusing on specific trigger points, this massage provides relief to tight, overused muscle fibers.
- Sports Massage Sports Massage therapy focuses on injured joints and muscles.
