At Peterson Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different services we offer in our Durham office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Erick Peterson has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Graston Technique® provides clinicians worldwide with an improved diagnostic and treatment technique for many challenging musculo-skeletal conditions. Used by physical and occupational therapists, hand therapists, chiropractors and athletic trainers, stainless steel instruments comb over and “catch” on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies areas of restriction. The instruments enable clinicians to treat soft tissue lesions in a precise manner and with greater specificity. Once the tissue dysfunction has been identified, the instruments break up the scar tissue so it can be absorbed by the body. By incorporating stretching, strengthening and ice in the treatment and rehab process, clinicians can rebuild the soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue.
Graston Technique® speeds rehabilitation and recovery, reduces the need for anti-inflammatory medication and allows patients to continue everyday activities. GT gives back the control that often is lost when injury strikes.
To complement and enhance the healing effects of Dr. Erick's specific Chiropractic adjustment treatment, we at Peterson Chiropractic also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
- Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
- Mechanical traction
- Moist heat therapy
- Dry Hydrotherapy
