Chiropractic Care

Dr. Reisnour practices diversified style chiropractic techniques, incorporating rehabilitative exercises into your treatment. Diversified is the most commonly practiced technique of chiropractic. At StartingBlock Chiropractic we use a elevating drop-style table, instrument-assisted adjustments, and traditional hands-on techniques. More tools in the toolbox means more options for patients.

Soft Tissue Treatment

We use a combination of soft tissue treatments to help improve your results. Cupping, is the application of suction to increase blood circulation in the area of treatment, introducing blood cells to clean up an area where there are adhesions or scar tissue. Instrument-assisted tools can help decrease sensitized tissue, help improve elasticity of scar tissue, increase circulation to improve healing, or decrease swelling from an injury depending on how the instrument is applied. The use of a instrument does not equal pain- it can make treatments more effective.

Movement-Based Treatment

Dr. Reisnour uses FAKTR, which marries together functional movement, instrument-assisted treatments, and rehabilitative techniques. Instead of only treating tissue in a static position, you will receive treatment during the movements that are problematic, as well as correcting improper functional movement patterns. She also utilizes DynamicTape off-loading techniques, which works well for acute injuries.
Dr. Reisnour is also a FMT-certified provider through RockTape for blades and taping techniques.

Drills and Exercises

Drills are an important part of rehabilitation of an injury. The function of a drill is to build a new movement pattern for the brain. The brain is what controls movement, not muscle memory. When an injury occurs, such as hitting your knee on the corner of your coffee table, you alter the way you move in order to prevent any more injury from occurring: pain avoidance. Pain is the signal that in injury occurred. When this pain persists, the brain continues this protective altered movement pattern. Now if the injury has healed, the brain sometimes continues this altered pattern; the longer the wrong pattern has been used, the more the brain has to be reminded to not use that pattern. Drills are an important learning tool for making patients confident outside of the clinic: you learn to recognize when you are reinforcing a bad movement pattern that caused you pain or discomfort and can help you correct the movement on your own. This is why drills are performed and is akin to when you learned to ride a bike or swim.

Exercises are how you build strength or conditioning and is also important to rehab of injury. If you have had weakening of a muscle due to an injury, surgery, or sedentary lifestyle, exercises will help build strength to support your body the way it was meant to. Often times, exercises are used in conjunction with drills, depending on the person and their reason for seeking care. Exercises are prescribed with sets and repetitions, i.e. 2 sets of 10 reps.

Our Patients

Don't let pain or fear of pain keep you from participating in the activities you want to do.

Dr. Reisnour has experience treating patients aged from infants to geriatric. It's our philosophy to give patients the tools and confidence to understand their injury, heal through active care at our clinic, and graduate to self-care as needed out of office.

Clients can be hesitant to start chiropractic care thinking, "Once I start care, then I'll always need to go." If the source of the injury is treated and the dysfunctional movement is corrected using the prescribed drills, most patients move past their injury. Our brains learn to build new movement patterns to avoid further injury. These new patterns are harmful long-term and make parts of our body move in a way that they normally wouldn't. This can cause pain, even after the original injury heals.

Active care is when you are treating a specific injury and requires several treatments. Many patients notice they feel better when they receive wellness care; wellness care is usually a stand-alone visit to check the body's joints are moving freely and can help prevent injuries from occurring- think of it as going in for a teeth cleaning, except for your joints. Some patients choose to come in once a month, it's a personal choice.
