pain shouldn’t be your new normal
We are pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Lance Richardson. Originally from a suburb of Houston, Texas, he and his wife moved to Mena to be closer to family. He graduated from Texas Chiropractic College in 2011 and has been a part of multiple practices, managing patients with conditions from common back pain to more complex situations such as stenosis, scoliosis and herniated discs. He is trained to read plain film x-rays and MRIs in order to provide a proper diagnosis and to give you a plan that will help you to regain function and get back to your normal activities.
If you’re nervous about your first visit to a chiropractor, rest assured that Dr. Lance Richardson has different options for treatment including the standard spinal manipulation, as well as low force techniques and acupuncture. He will discuss all your options and what to expect so that you can understand what will work best for your situation.
This may include multiple methods of adjusting the spine, ranging from a hands-on, “diversified” method, to using an instrument-assisted technique via an adjusting tool.
ACUPUNCTURE AND DRY NEEDLING
Treatment for pain, muscle spasm and other musculoskeletal problems can be helped by inserting small needles in for pain relief.
This is a form of Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization that is used to break down scar tissue formation and reduce muscular spasm due to injury or repetitive stress.
After an adjustment, it may be recommended to use the Spinalator table that offers a passive way to stretch and move the spine using a foam roller.
In addition to the hands on treatment offered within the office, you might be instructed to perform specific, hand selected exercises that are proven to help you start moving even better.
When appropriate, low-force techniques such as myofascial release and trigger point therapy may be used to increase the range of motion and help with functional movement.
