Flynn Chiropractic P.C. in Tyler, Texas provides a well rounded approach to treating the whole body as well as specific pain. We utilize chiropractic manipulation, myofascial release, triggerpoint therapy, Kinesiotaping, rehabilitative exercises, and nutrition to tackle the most challenging of cases.
The purpose of this procedure is to move a joint that is "stuck" or "out of place". Joints need to move and when they don't, pain and degeneration occur. Chiropractic manipulation has been proven to be a safe and effective way to help a joint return to its normal function.
Used for thousands of years, this therapy has been approved by the World Health Organization to help with over 100 different disorders including joint pain, muscle pain, diabetes, skin problems, arthritis, and weight loss just to name a few.
Nutrition is the most underutilized therapy in modern medicine. Your body cannot heal without the materials it needs to repair tissue. We objectively measure the status of nutrients in your body and prescribe a nutrition plan based on the results. Vitamin deficiencies are common these days due to medications inhibiting absorption/utilization and lack of foods with proper amounts of vitamins in it. Without these vitamins, the body cannot properly make hormones, muscles, ligaments, and energy just to name a few. Make this part of your yearly physical to ensure proper health.
Muscle and fascia problems have been shown to be a large source of pain for many people, and if not treated can lead to more aggressive treatments like surgery. Muscle and fascia provide support to the body and joints. When they cannot perform their function, pain can occur. Our examination addresses this aspect of pain and we treat with various advanced forms of "manual therapy" to correct the problem.
Trigger points are tiny knots in muscle that can refer pain to different parts of the body. For example, trigger points in the neck can cause pain down the arm or up into the head possibly causing conditions such as migraines or carpal tunnel syndrome.
This form of athletic taping is extremely effective in managing joint pain. Frequently referred to as "magic tape", it can help restore pain-free motion of a joint while adhering to the body for 2-3 days even with exercise.
An integral part of our therapy is exercise, as well as teaching proper exercise. Muscles are the #1 protectors of joints, so making sure they are working properly is imperative to achieve pain relief. The right exercises make all the difference, and the wrong exercises can slow progress or even make conditions worse.
Numerous famous athletes have received platelet-rich plasma (PRP) knee injections in recent years to be able to return more quickly to high-level competition. Because PRP is plasma with far more platelets that what is found in the blood, PRP injections are able to combine with the blood to speed up the healing process, fighting swelling, inflammation, and pain.
Through the use of latex rubber bands during warm ups, cool downs, or in between workouts, patients may fight soreness and initiate speedy recoveries from intense movement and exercise-related pain. By compressing joints and soft tissues in the body, floss bands are able to successfully increase joint mobility, decrease pain, and speed up recovery to improve your physical performance overall.
By utilizing specific vibratory percussive forces aiming at soft tissue structures surrounding joint capsules like muscles, ligaments, and tendons, percussive therapy is able to accelerate the growth and repair of tissues in the body. By providing concentrated, rapid, short-duration pulses deep into the tissues of the body, blood flow to those areas is heavily increased to cause pain relief and an increase in range of motion and function, improving both responsiveness and performance in muscles and connective tissues.
