Here Is A Little Information About Us
At Ellis Chiropractic, the chiropractors are trained in several different chiropractic techniques including the Palmer Package, Activator methods, Thompson Drop, and Gonstead. The chiropractor utilizes a combination of manual adjusting, instrument adjusting, rehabilitative exercises and other therapeutic modalities to help achieve an optimal level of care for each patient.
The massage therapists at Ellis Chiropractic specialize in medical massage therapy. This is massage therapy treatment that is prescribed by either one of the chiropractors at Ellis Chiropractic or an outside medical professional. Medical massage focuses on treating an injury or condition with the intent to restore the patient to pre-injury status or to maximum medical improvement. Medical massage requires a higher level of proficiency due to the interactive nature of the massage care with the care being given by the referring provider. While medical massage therapy is the specialty of the massage therapists at Ellis Chiropractic, it is not the only type of massage therapy available at the Puyallup massage clinic. Each massage therapist may also provide the more traditional spa style relaxation massages.
Spinal Decompression is a form of therapy that was designed to reduce the symptoms of a compressed or bulging disc. Chiropractors, physical therapists, and other medical practitioners use spinal decompression to remove the pressure that a bulging disc puts on the nerve and therefore reduce the symptoms such as numbness, tingling, and weakness that are caused by this pressure. Spinal decompression is also used by the chiropractor to stretch the muscles of the neck or lower back that have become tight due to injury or overuse.
Ellis Chiropractic provides chiropractic, massage therapy, spinal decompression and other rehabilitation and therapeutic modalities to it’s patient base from the downtown Puyallup, WA office location.
