Spinal manipulation Therapy

This is the fancy word that is used for an "adjustment". 

What exactly is an adjustment? When chiropractors perform a manipulation (adjustment), we are taking the joint to its end range of motion. Once we find that the joint is in this position, a high-velocity low-amplitude thrust is performed. This is when you may hear the "popping" sound. (Click here to learn what is the popping sound)?

The purpose of this technique is to decrease pain, increase the range of motion of the joint, increase blood flow, and improve neuromuscular function. This technique has been thoroughly researched and is now highly recommended to be paired with exercise, and soft tissue therapy for it to be most effective.

Soft Tissue Therapy

Soft tissue therapy is a broad term that covers any therapeutic technique that involves treating muscle, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. Typically soft tissue therapy involves applying pressure to the tissue and stretching it, although there are various ways to provide soft tissue therapy. These techniques aid in improving range of motion, releasing endorphins (the "feel good" chemicals), improving blood flow, and increasing muscle activity. This technique can be utilized for most musculoskeletal conditions. 

Functional Integrated Acupuncture

Acupuncture allows us to reach tissues that our hands physically can't with manual therapy. The insertion of needles into the tissues causes the release of substances that help improve blood flow to areas of tightness and decreases sensitivity by affecting the nervous system. These effects help control pain, improve function, and speed up the healing process. Needles are kept in the tissue for 15-20 minutes to ensure the maximal efficacy of the treatment. 

Occasionally, electrodes may be added to the acupuncture needles to increase the effect on the neuromuscular system. Acupuncture can be helpful for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Let Dr. Jordan Villeneuve know if you wish to incorporate acupuncture into your treatments. 

rehabilitative or Corrective exercise

This is a big one. When you leave the clinic it is incredibly important that you are equipped with the tools that you need in order to stay out of pain and discomfort. When you think about it, you only spend a small fraction of time in the clinic, and the majority of it outside of the clinic living your everyday life. You need to be educated and prepared with the right tools in order to maintain a healthy life, and Dr. Jordan Villeneuve ensures you are ready to take life by the... well, you know the rest!

Examples of rehabilitative exercise

joint mobilizations

Joint mobilizations are a gentle manual therapy technique that is performed with the goal of improving the range of motion of the joint, decreasing pain, and increasing the function of a joint. Joint mobilizations help to increase the natural lubricant within the joints (synovial fluid) to help the joint move and feel better. These are commonly applied in Dr. Jordan's office, most notably to clients who may have risk factors associated with the application of spinal manipulation.

self-management strategies

Self-management is important so that you don't feel that you need to continue to see your health care professionals as often as you might think. 

Self-Management strategies are techniques that Dr. Jordan Villeneuve will send you home with in order to cope with your pain or injury. It is important that you are prepared to deal with your pain or injury at home while you are not in the clinic since you are spending most of your week on your own at home living your life. 

Some techniques include postural advice, exercise technique education, ergonomic evaluations (workspace advice), self-pain management, stress, hot/cold, and stretching.


Looking for custom orthotics within the Hanmer, Val Caron, and Valley East regions? Look no further!

Custom foot orthotics are prescription medical devices, designed to adjust and control the functions of the foot and its alignment with the lower leg. They are used to treat/prevent injury-causing motions including excessive pronation (collapsing in) and supination (rolling out) of the foot and make standing, walking, and running more efficient. Some custom orthotics are designed to redistribute pressure on the bottoms of your feet to alleviate pain from corns, callouses, or bony prominences. 

Dr. Jordan Villeneuve works with the Atlas Orthotic Group to provide his patients with the best possible orthotics that are made custom to your feet. All done right in the Valley East community. After a thorough biomechanical assessment of your foot and your gait pattern (walking) is performed, Dr. Jordan will take a 3D foam impression cast of your feet in order to ensure your orthotics are unique to you. 

Atlas Orthotic Lab has a vast online catalog of footwear that you can access here.

Ask Dr. Jordan Villeneuve if orthotics are something that interests you!
