the relief you’ve been looking for
you are not alone
When you work with Dr. Nicholas J. Circolone FACO, you can rest assured that your concerns will be heard and addressed. Dr. Circolone can not do the work alone. It’s a team effort to help you reach manageable or pain-free levels. Our team offers guidance and support during spinal decompression, myofascial release, and various other therapies. We have offices in Chattanooga, TN, and are accepting new patients at both locations!
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a form of therapy that involves stretching the spine with the use of a traction table or device. The treatment is designed to relieve pressure on the spinal discs and nerve roots in the spine by creating negative pressure within the affected area. This negative pressure can help to reposition herniated or bulging discs and promote the flow of nutrients, oxygen, and water into the discs, which can improve their health and function. The therapy is typically performed over a series of sessions, with each session lasting 20-25 minutes. Non-surgical spinal decompression is generally considered safe and non-invasive and may be a viable alternative to surgery for some individuals with certain spinal conditions.
Myofascial release is a type of therapy that focuses on releasing tension and restrictions in the fascia, which is the connective tissue that surrounds and supports muscles and other structures in the body. The therapy involves applying gentle, sustained pressure to specific areas of the body where fascial restrictions are present, with the goal of loosening tight or stiff fascia and restoring mobility and function to the affected area. Myofascial release may involve the use of hands-on techniques, specialized tools, or other modalities. The therapy is often used to treat a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, stiffness, and restricted range of motion, and may be combined with other therapies to achieve optimal results.
Stretch therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on stretching the body to improve flexibility, mobility, and range of motion. The therapy involves working with the doctor, who will guide the patient through a series of stretches and exercises that are designed to target specific areas of the body. The stretches may be performed on a mat, a table, or using specialized equipment and may involve active or passive movement. Stretch therapy may be used to treat a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, stiffness, and limited mobility, and may also be used to enhance athletic performance or prevent injury. The therapy is often tailored to the specific needs and goals of the patient and may be combined with other therapies to achieve optimal results.
Dry needling is a therapeutic technique that involves the insertion of thin, solid needles into trigger points or areas of tight muscle fibers to relieve pain and improve mobility. The therapy works by causing a small, controlled injury to the affected area, which can trigger the body’s natural healing response and help to release tension in the muscles and soft tissues. Dry needling is often used to treat musculoskeletal conditions such as chronic pain, muscle tension, and spasms and may also be used to improve athletic performance or prevent injury. While dry needling is generally considered safe, there may be some minor side effects, such as soreness or bruising at the insertion site.
muscle stimulation (E-Stim)
Sometimes muscles can atrophy and have a difficult time contracting, so muscle stimulation treatment can induce movement and help with recovery. Muscle stimulation is a non-invasive and non-painful process of sending electric currents through the muscle, forcing them to contract.
Therapeutic ultrasound works in conjunction with chiropractic treatment to help patients overcome pain and stiffness. When ultrasonic energy reaches injured tissue, the waves increase blood flow and accelerate the healing process. It’s a pain-free and effective treatment that can help you live a more comfortable life.
trigger point therapy
Trigger point therapy focuses on trigger points to relieve pain and pressure. Waste products can build up around nerve clusters and cause nerve pain, so with trigger point therapy, Dr. Circolone will break up the lusters and ease your symptoms. Trigger point therapy can also help with numbness or tingling.
High arches or flat feet can cause stress and inflammation in the plantar fascia, leading to plantar fasciitis. Left untreated, this can lead to a spinal imbalance and knee, ankle, hip, and back pain. Orthotics can restore your balance and ensure your body remains properly aligned by providing the correct degree of cushioning where it’s needed.
