Treatments

Dr. Kaput’s main treatment plan involves spinal manipulation, however, he also employs several other therapies such as massage and at home stretches.  The following are other therapies that allow Dr. Kaput to help you feel your very best.

Primary Therapy

Adjustments are the main component to chiropractic care as they help to correct vertebral subluxations.  By correcting subluxations, pain and inflammation are dramatically reduced, the spinal misalignments are normalized, tension and muscle spasms are reduced and relieved, and there is reduced nerve irritation and improved nerve communication.  All of these combined allow the body to reach an improved state of health and wellness.  Chiropractic adjustments are the only option to correct vertebral subluxations and the chiropractor is the only trained health professional to deliver these spinal corrections.

The spinal adjustment or manipulation refers to the procedure in which Dr. Kaput applies a controlled force into one or more vertebrae of the spine that are subluxated.  More frequently than not, the adjustment is primarily used in the pelvic area to help normalize and balance the sacroiliac joints.  Dr. Kaput delivers adjustments primarily with his hands and will also utilize a specialized mechanical tool.

Adjunctive Therapy

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, there are several other therapies that can be added to help patients achieve their optimal health.  Every individual is unique and requires different care depending on their situation.  Dr. Kaput encourages you to have a consultation to discuss your personalized treatment plan.
