spine, ankle, or knee. The adjustment is generally associated with a ‘popping’
or ‘cracking’ noise.

Bio-mechanical and Ergonomic Education

Ergonomic education refers to the process of designing or arranging workplaces, products, and systems so that they fit the people who use them, often following an injury or in a preventative sense.
Dry Needle Therapy
Similar to acupuncture (traditional Chinese medicine) with regards to the use of acupuncture needles to treat the musculoskeletal and nervous systems based on modern neuroanatomy science. The ‘dry’ component merely refers to the lack of fluid being injected into the trigger points.
Deep Tissue Massage
A type of massage therapy that uses firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). It's used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Trigger Point Therapy
A form of remedial massage therapy in which direct pressure is applied to specified points on tender muscle tissue to bring about reduction in muscle tension and pain relief. Each muscle has potential trigger points which can become activated by muscle overuse, inflammation, trauma, electrolyte imbalances, infections, and nerve pain.
