Chiropractic Sports Medicine

The DOC rehab team has enabled countless car accident patients to recover quicker and return to a normal life faster. Our team does this using some main treatment modalities.

Graston Technique®

Graston Technique® is a patented deep tissue treatment performed with specialty instruments. These instruments help detect tense tissue treat it with deep pressure and tactile focus. The use of Graston Technique® enables our physical therapy and chiropractic team to treat areas with unrivaled precision. The technique uses flat stainless-steel instruments to scrape the outer layers of skin. This scraping stimulates blood flow and releases tension in muscle knots. Practitioners who wish to practice this technique are certified. Dr. St. Pierre is a certified Graston Technique® professional and has trained others in the technique.

Cupping Therapy

The practice of cupping works by creating a vacuum that suctions your skin. This suction causes the skin to rise and swell. This rising and swelling stimulates your blood vessels, promoting blood flow and enhancing relaxation. Our providers also use this therapy to help reduce pain and inflammation.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is a specialized technique that focuses on targeting trigger points in the muscular system. Our providers target trigger points using hollow-core hypodermic needles, resulting in muscle pain relief. They use this common therapeutic method for myofasical pain syndromes and other muscle-related discomfort. Dry needling stimulates the muscles to relieve tension at the root.
