Watson chiropractic has a variety of treatment tools to get you back to feeling your best. Treatments are always customized to address your specific requirements.

Spinal manipulation/ Adjustment:

The chiropractic adjustment is a therapeutic procedure that relieves painful restricted joints as a result of injury. This is a high-velocity low amplitude thrust to the restricted vertebrae resulting in an audible release of gas, caused by releasing joint pressure thereby restoring normal joint mechanics. 

Tissue injuries can be caused by repetitive stresses such as sitting or lying with poor posture for a lengthy period, or a single traumatic occasion, such as lifting a heavy object. This will lead to physical changes within the joints that trigger pain, inflammation and diminish function. Spinal manipulation can be an ideal treatment choice to alleviate pain, restore mobility, loosen tense muscles, and help tissues heal more quickly.

During an adjustment, a patient rarely feels any discomfort. However, in cases where you experience aching or soreness, it’s typically mild and the effects disappear in less than 48 hours. To reduce the symptoms, you can apply heat or ice to the painful area. Also be sure to let Dr. Watson know at or before your next appointment. 

Myofascial release therapy

Myofascial release therapy is almost always often performed to localized areas of complaint in tandem with chiropractic treatments. It involves putting compression and tension through some of the tight and restricted muscles. While the muscle is under this tension, the muscle is then stretched through its range of motion. It can help relax the tight bands of muscles, break up scar tissue from micro-trauma, restore blood flow and lymphatic drainage, and help restore motion to the area. It also helps ‘loosen’ the area around a restricted joint before a spinal manipulation. 

The muscle and joint system are intimately connected. What affects one system, affects the other by default. Therefore, if you are experiencing pain, it’s ideal to treat BOTH systems as opposed to only treating one, and ignoring a major component of pain.

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique, in which fine solid needles (acupuncture needles) are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites, and stimulated manually or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of changing abnormal activity of the nervous system. This change or neuromodulation, occurs through mechanisms at multiple levels, namely: peripheral nerves, spinal cord, brain stem, brain and cerebellum.


Myofascial Cupping has been around since the early 19th century – only recently has the image of purple circles on professional athlete’s backs created attention to an ancient myofascial therapy. The cups and techniques have changed over time, but the basic premise of the cups providing suction to decompress the underlying tissue remains the same. Cupping will increase tissue glide by increasing blood flood as well as fluid to between the fascia and muscle tissue and is an effective tool in restoring normal tissue function and decreasing pain.
