At MaxHealth Chiropractic, we are competitive towards getting people out of pain – FAST – without drugs, surgeries or injections. That is why we provide the highest level of therapeutic technology and rehab in today’s modern world.
The Chiropractic Adjustment is the cornerstone of our practice. Realigning the spine into proper position alleviates pain, degeneration and allows the body the heal and function at its best. We offer a wide variety of adjustment techniques, including instrument-assisted ones.
Active Release Techniques (ART) is a medically patented soft-tissue technique used to restore muscle length and function by breaking up myofacial adhesions, restoring oxygen to the tissues allowing each muscle fiber to glide back and forth like silk and without friction. During exercise and activity, muscles contract – relax, repeatedly over and over again. If an injury occurs, oxygen to those muscles becomes depleted and overtime prevents proper healing to occur. Oxygen deprivations within the muscle fibers cause fibrinogen to form. Fibrinogen is the precursor to scar tissue. Scar-tissue not only causes pain but also decreases an person’s ability to function by means of lessening their range-of motion causing other muscle to compensate. Compensation leads the athlete prone to further injury. ART treats and prevents all of those problems making ART the Gold Standard of soft-tissue techniques.
Dr. Max Cohen is a Certified Provider in Active Release Techniques. He gets amazing results with local athletes and those just looking to move and perform pain-free.
MaxHealth Chiropractic has recently added K-Laser therapy into our practice because we want to provide a high-quality treatment option for our patients to heal quickly, recover fully and reduce pain effectively. K-Laser is an FDA cleared therapeutic treatment that manages pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration.
Dr. Max is the only Certified Fascial Movement Taping Level 1 & 2 expert in Wellington. FMT is an evidence-informed kinesiology taping certification that redefines the previous understandings of the effects of elastic therapeutic taping on pain mitigation, circulation and proprioception. Movement therapy and performance enhancement via functional taping methods are studied in great detail. The emphasis on how to apply tape in a manner that improves movement and function is what makes FMT superior to other taping methods.
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is the product of an exercise philosophy know as Functional Movement Systems. This exercise philosophy and corresponding set of resources is based on sound science, years of innovation and current research.
Put simply, the FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness. The FMS generates the Functional Movement Screen Score, which is used to target problems and track progress. This scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.
At MaxHealth Chiropractic, our Chiropractic Technical Assistants monitor the FMS score to track progress and identify those exercises that will be most effective to restore proper movement and build strength in each of our patients.
