Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is “a health-care profession that focuses on the spine and other joints of the body, and their connection to the nervous system,” according to Palmer College of Chiropractic. Doctors of chiropractic are primary care doctors who specialize in spinal health and well being. We focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and care of the spine and other joints. Chiropractors also provide soft tissue therapies and lifestyle recommendations, as well as  fitness and nutritional coaching. 

Our approach to Chiropractic begins with a comprehensive exam to look at the structure and the function of the spine. If joints are not moving properly or there are structural issue with the spine, we have several ways to correct that through non-invasive chiropractic using things like manual adjustments, e-stimulation, intersegmental traction, spinal decompression, laser therapy, flexion distraction, thompson drops, activator methods, and more!

Manual Adjustments

The most common chiropractic care is manual adjustments. The art of chiropractic lies in the adjusting. At Fredericksburg Chiropractic we believe in hands on manual manipulation for the majority of our treatment plans. Chiropractic literally means “done by hand” in Latin. Keeping this in mind, we believe it is best to use manual adjusting techniques for our patients. Our patients have excellent results from our hands on adjustments. 

Dr. McKinney is a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic and uses the Palmer Package. The Palmer Package is a set of adjusting techniques used to help patients return to a state of wellness. Palmer was the first chiropractic school and is often referred to as the ‘Harvard of Chiropractic’. For this reason Dr. McKinney traveled to Iowa to study Chiropractic and hone his adjusting skills. 

E-Stimulation

In addition to manual adjusting, we also offer e-stimulation, commonly referred to as e-stim. E-stim is administered to patients when they have very spastic muscles. The electrical impulses cause the muscles to repeatedly fire. These repeated muscular contractions in turn fatigue the muscles. When the muscles fatigue, it allows them to relax from their previous state of contraction which often takes pressure off the nerves that are causing the felt pain. The electrical stimulation is typically administered for 10 minutes prior to chiropractic treatments. The relaxed muscles will help the manual manipulation adjustment go smoother.

Intersegmental Traction

Following a chiropractic adjustment, we may administer intersegmental traction. After the chiropractic adjustment the patient lays on an intersegmental traction table which rolls up and down the axial spine. The rolling action helps induce motion back into the spinal joints as the machine rises on its Y axis while tractioning the spine on its X axis. Patients often describe the intersegmental traction table as a massage table. 

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression utilizes a gentle traction to stretch the spine, joints, and a wide range of important muscles including the back, hips, and thighs. Patients are gently leaned back into a supine position and the machine does all the work. Many fall asleep while being treated as the gentle vibration helps to further relax the muscles.

Laser Therapy

High Intensity Laser Therapy (HILT) is an amazing tool for many of our chronic patients. For those suffering with inflammation, our class IV laser will accelerate healing time by boosting the production of ATP which is the energy source of a cell, released by the mitochondria. Many patients feel instant relief with the soothing heat generated as a by product of a laser treatment.

Additional Treatments & Conditions

Spine Graphic

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative Disk Disease is when normal changes that take place in the disks of your spine cause pain.

Peripheral Neuropathy

Neuropathy is “the conditions that result when nerves that carry messages to and from the brain and spinal cord from and to the rest of the body are damaged or diseased.

Migraine Treatment

Migraines

More than 4 million adults experience chronic daily migraine, making it the 3rd most prevalent illness in the world.

Spinal Decompression

Non-surgical spinal decompression is a motorized traction that can help relieve back pain. It gently stretches the spine which causes the spine to change position.

Orthotics Treatments

Orthotics

Orthotics are a wonderful solution to help you with a variety of pain and provide postural support.

Massage Thereapy

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy works the tendons and muscles of the body. Our skilled massage therapist will use techniques that manipulate the tendons and muscles that are affected by inflammation and pain.

Chiropractic Treatment Plans

At Fredericksburg Chiropractic we offer a variety of manual adjusting treatments and treatment plans to fit your specific needs. Dr. McKinney is very hands-on with his adjustments. Common adjusting techniques used include Gonstead, Diversified, and Thompson. These are all tried and true adjusting techniques used by chiropractors across the nation. Dr. McKinney has a variety of techniques for the betterment of his patients, including extremity adjusting (ankles, knees, wrist, elbow, and shoulders). 

Each of our chiropractic patients are treated on an individual basis depending on their needs. As mentioned above, we focus on how the spine and joints of the body connect to the nervous system. So, if you have been suffering from headaches, anxiety, hip or leg pain, or other issues, our chiropractic care is here to help you by restoring your body to its natural functionality. When your nervous system function is improved, your entire body will operate at a higher level.

Have only visited with them twice, so far, but this far I am impressed!. From the first day, to the second day, exactly what I was told I would "experience " and be "treated for", has been exactly that. In the sun of two short visits, I already feel a slight relief, in the ridiculous pain I am dealing with. (Under the understanding that it takes time and does not go away over night). The personal interaction and one on one conversation/discussion is excellent and they will GLADLY listen to you and take everything you say/request, into consideration and use it to your advantage!. I will be going back over the course of the next couple weeks, and am greatly looking forward to it!

I came to Fredericksburg Chiropractic with foot and ankle pain that was keeping me from being active like I wanted to be. I'm married with 3 young girls and coach middle school basketball. It was depressing to think that I may not be able to run and get around like I did in the past. Dr. McKinney did a great job listening and crafting a plan to get me back on track. He did some things in the office to help relieve the pain and suggested I get custom orthotics. I've had the orthotics for about 6 months or so and now I'm playing basketball with the team and am able to work on my feet all day pain free. The whole staff there was friendly. I highly recommend Fredericksburg Chiropractic.
