How Technology Can Improve Your Results—Naturally!

shockwave therapyAt Bissell Clinic, we want the best for our patients. We know that our hands can only do so much—and in today’s modern world, we’re proud to welcome the use of technology to help us bring you the best possible care.

Many of you know that in our practice, we often recommend patients undergo Shockwave Therapy sessions or spend time on our Spinal Decompression table. Why? Because the results are incredible—and these machines can help you get well and stay well, preventing future injuries from occurring again while unlocking your true health potential and getting back to what you enjoy.

But did you know that we also offer postural assessments using evidence-based posture analysis software? This software has been mentioned in several medical journals including the USA’s Journal of Physical Therapy Science and Europe’s International Network of Sport and Health Science. When one thinks of posture often the thought only goes as far as straightening the spine, however, posture relates to how you carry your body beginning with your feet all the way up to how you carry your head.

If just one area is out of balance, your whole body will be affected whether you feel it or not. Natural adaptations will occur in the body to accommodate this altered posture and can ultimately lead to chronic pain, increased propensity for injury, altered gait, lack of balance and changes to your skeleton including the development of bone spurs and other changes that cannot be corrected.

This software can measure exactly how much one’s shoulders are unbalanced, if the ribcage is shifted, and if one’s hips are uneven – even if only by mere centimeters- measurements that are often imperceptible to the naked eye. The best part is that you get to see a picture of yourself along with the marks of how your body should be aligned.

Knowing where the problems are is only the first step. If it turns out that things are a bit less than perfect, we will provide treatments or recommendations to correct any misalignments or biomechanical imbalances which can include ergonomic education, home exercises and stretches, foam rolling, and massage recommendations. More serious cases may benefit from working one-on-one with one of our providers who will employ neuromuscular reeducation techniques to retrain how your brain and body work together.
