Chiropractic Care

Adjusting backPain is a warning signal, much like the “check engine” light on your car. It’s your body’s way of saying, “Hey, something isn’t right here!” That something is dysfunction. Your body is an entire system that works together. If a part isn’t working as it should, you start to feel pain.

As a chiropractor, Dr. Rahman’s job is to figure out where those areas of dysfunction are, particularly the joints that aren’t moving as they should. He applies a chiropractic adjustment to make the joint mobile again, which will improve how your entire body functions.

The Gonstead System

Dr. Rahman is a practitioner of the Gonstead Technique, which involves five vital components:

  1. Visualization. Your gait may be observed, and any swelling or redness around the spine will be examined.
  2. Static palpation. Your spine and muscles will be touched to determine where areas of tenderness are.
  3. Nervo-Scope®. This instrument reads the temperature around your spine to identify any areas that need help.
  4. X-Ray Analysis This allows us to see any malformations or misalignments.
  5. Motion palpation. The movement around the joint will be felt to see whether a joint is stuck.

A thorough analysis is carried out on every single one of your visits at Burke Mill Chiropractic. It gives an incredibly scientific approach to your care.

Are you looking for a gentler touch? Dr. Rahman can accommodate you. He uses Maitland Mobilization, which releases restricted joints. A softer touch is used to do so, making it comfortable yet nearly as effective as a manual technique. If your pelvis requires adjustment, Dr. Rahman has a drop table to make it easy on you.

Have you ever felt a tight area of muscle, almost like a knot or bead? It needs to be released, and that’s where this technique comes in. Trigger point therapy involves holding these tight spots for 30 seconds to two minutes, forcing them to loosen up.

To warm up before your adjustment, you can take advantage of our massage tables (intersegmental traction) and electrical stimulation devices. These will help relax your muscles and joints, making your adjustment easily carried out.
