When needed, X-rays are ordered. Once an accurate diagnosis is reached, an individualized treatment plan is created for each patient to meet unique needs. It’s never a one-size-fits-all approach with Dr. Milam. With manual adjustments, Dr. Milam can fix any existing subluxations (spinal mis-alignments) to eliminate pain, improve joint mobility and improve function. Depending on your condition, spinal decompression therapy may be used in combination with manual adjustments. This therapy is done on a traction table with a computerized device that gently stretches the spine to increase space between the spinal bones.
Soft Tissue therapy is the ideal adjunct therapy with spinal adjustments and spinal decompression therapy. It helps prepare the body to accept the adjustment while increasing oxygenation and blood circulation to the injured area for faster healing. It’s highly effective for soft tissue injuries. With cold laser therapy, the laser utilizes light energy to penetrate deep and enhance healing at a cellular level. It also helps reduce inflammation and pain. Dr. Milam uses Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) for tendonitis, bursitis and proximal plantar fasciitis. This device uses high-energy acoustic waves to reduce pain, increase metabolic activity and accelerate the healing process. In addition, Dr. Milam also provides on-set movie chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue therapy for actors and production crews.
