Activator Method  Belton, TX

Activator Method

The Activator is the most widely used chiropractic instrument. Studies show improvement with the Activator Method. It also has been compared to other techniques and proven to be just as effective. This means that for many patients an Activator adjustment could very well lead to the same outcome as a manual adjustment. This offers chiropractors and patients an alternative to manual adjusting when it is preferred for clinical reasons.

Acupuncture  Belton, TX

Acupuncture

At our practice, we specialize in neuroanatomical acupuncture or meridian-based acupuncture, which focuses on finding spots on the body that are tight or tense. “I do more trigger point release and meridian-based acupuncture than energetic medicine,” said William Blakely, acupuncturist.

William strictly concentrates on neuromuscular problems such as sciatica, which constitutes the majority of his practice.

He also addresses the following common conditions:

  • Back pain
  • Foot pain
  • Headaches
  • Leg pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain

Traditional & Electroacupuncture Offered

For some conditions, William will use traditional acupuncture; however, the main method of acupuncture he uses is electroacupuncture. This type of acupuncture uses electrostimulation on top of the needle to significantly enhance treatment.

According to William, if you have trigger spots that are in dysfunction along the spine, neck or anywhere in your body, they need to be released to create a free-flowing form of energy. Electroacupuncture can relax the musculature in the body that promotes healing.

By inserting a needle into a point and stimulating it, microcirculation is created under the skin, bringing interstitial fluid to the area. As a result, the muscles relax, alleviating the pain. Similar to chiropractic, acupuncture has to be done repeatedly over a period to reduce the dysfunction in the muscle.

What to Expect

When you come in for your appointment, William will get your history and determine what your problem is. He’ll have a question and answer period with you and will sometimes do range-of-motion studies.

After the questions and answers portion, William will have you put a gown on and then lie on a table—face up or facedown depending on where your pain is. He puts his patients at ease, ensuring they’re comfortable right from the start. William wants patients to know that acupuncture isn’t painful and that the needles used are ultrathin.

William begins by palpating the muscle in the area that they’re having trouble with. He bases his treatment on what he feels as he’s touching the skin. “For example, if someone comes in for headaches, I have to find out where the headache’s coming from.” As another condition that William treats often, low back pain can be caused by subluxations of the spine. Sometimes it’s caused by nothing more than tense muscles on either side of the spine contracting.

ART (Active Release Technique)  Belton, TX

ART (Active Release Technique)

Active Release Technique (ART) is a soft tissue therapy designed to rid injured areas of scar tissue. Here at Montgomery Chiropractic we incorporate ART in our treatment of musculoskeletal disorders to remedy injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, rotator cuff injuries, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, tennis elbow, headaches, and back pain. All of theses conditions tend to have one thing in common: the result of an overused muscle.

We are all prone to over-using muscles while at work and in our daily lives, no matter the occupation. Overuse Syndrome is common in our society. As a result of our work duties, athletic events and daily lives, we are all at risk of developing this syndrome due to repetitive stresses on the same structures. These stresses may not be painful at first, but the body learns to compensate for long term use resulting in the soft tissue adapting and changing over time.

Chiropractic Adjustments  Belton, TX

Chiropractic Adjustments

Dr. Micah is proud to be able to offer our patients an array of adjusting techniques to promote better health and wellness. Through chiropractic care, the body can heal itself naturally, without the use of medication.

With safe, effective and non-invasive chiropractic, we seek to relieve your pain and correct the root cause of your problem.

A chiropractic adjustment involves high velocity thrusts applied to the vertebra, relieving sensation, discomfort, and spasms in the surrounding muscles. It also releases joint cavitation, which is caused by the release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide.

Although many people visit their chiropractor and have an adjustment when something feels out of alignment, a regular visit will help you avoid any pain in the future and will keep your body feeling great all day long.

If you are having one of those days when you are not in the best mood, an adjustment may actually help. Your body will feel much better, which will naturally improve your mood.

Cold Laser Therapy  Belton, TX

Cold Laser Therapy

Imagine the surprise when researchers learned that certain light frequencies could actually reduce inflammation and enhance the healing process!

When patients learn that we use laser therapy in our practice, they have visions of a powerful, steel-cutting beam of light. The “cold” laser we use has only a tiny fraction of the power. Instead, its value comes from the frequency of the light it emits, not its intensity.

Specific Wavelengths
Instead of the full spectrum of light that comes from the sun, our low level laser produces light in a narrow frequency. Frequencies in the red portion of the rainbow are shown to assist the healing of soft tissues. Apparently, cells of our body have receptors that are sensitive to light.

How Does It Work?
How can certain frequencies of light speed up or slow down biological processes? Many theories have been suggested, but from practical application with real patients, we know it works for:

  • Wound healing
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Pain management
  • Cell regeneration
  • Scar tissue reduction

While scientists debate the mechanism by which low level laser works and publish their work in the scientific literature, our patients are just delighted that it works!

Diversified Technique  Belton, TX

Diversified Technique

The goal of the Diversified Technique is to reduce nerve interference. There are no special or unique procedures needed. Patients are assessed using these various mechanisms: history and basic examination (orthopedic and neurologic), palpation, x-ray, leg checks and reflex procedures as well as others.

The procedure involves analyzing the full spine and extremities. The majority of adjustments used in Diversified are manual adjustments, HVLA (high velocity, low amplitude), or long lever manipulations aimed at cavitating the joint and creating an audible release. This sound is known by patients as the “popping” or “cracking” sound associated with adjustments. Some chiropractors utilize specialized equipment such as drop tables or pelvic blocks.

Spinal Decompression  Belton, TX

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive mechanical procedure performed within our office to help alleviate back pain. It involves gently stretching the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs (the cushions that separate the vertebrae in the spine). By relieving this pressure, bulging discs can retract back into place which takes pressure off the nerves in the spine. By decompressing the spine, it permits water, oxygen and other fluids to work their way back into the discs allowing them to heal naturally. Spinal decompression is an excellent option for anyone with chronic back pain who wants to get back to living a pain-free life as quickly as possible.
