Treatment

Adjustments can help you safely and completely eradicate your condition. Patients often hear a small popping or cracking sound in their back when being treated through adjustments. Don’t be alarmed. This occurs when spinal joints in your neck and back are stretched. Specifically, there is a fluid that surrounds your back’s joint capsules. There are small pockets of air bubbles in this fluid. As the joint tissue becomes stretched during adjusting, the joint itself opens and the shifting air causes the cracking sound.

After adjustments, our clients often report a remarkable increase in their ability to move their neck and back. Even though your muscles may remain sore or tight, the range of motion in your spine is vastly improved and decreased pain will fallow.

 

 

DIVERSIFIED TECHNIQUE

Diversified Technique is unique since it combines multiple chiropractic techniques that work on both the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. The use of the Diversified Technique involves an adjustment using manual thrusts in portions of your neck and back — and you may hear popping sounds as it gets adjusted. Don’t be alarmed, the sound is created as the joint segments are opened.

 

THOMSON TECHNIQUE

Thomson Technique or Thompson Drop Table is often utilized at Chiropractie Oosterheem. Sometimes leg-length inequality indicates otherwise undetected spinal mis alignments.
The Thompson Technique can be an integral part of most patients’ chiropractic regimen. Thompson Technique can be altered to address each patient’s chiropractic needs, which in turn can restore movement and mobility. The first stage, which is called the Leg-Check Analysis and composed of a series of checks designed to fine-tune adjustments for each individual patient — the essential premise being that the body is wholly connected, and that the body’s core (spine, legs, and hips) must be observed as a singular entity.  Chiropractors Matthew Schaer D.C and Steven Douglas M. Chiro are highly trained Chiropractor and well-regarded practitioners of the Thompson Technique.

 

ARTHROSTIM ADJUSTOR

At Chiropractie Oosterheem and Chiropractie Den Haag we often use a special instrument called an Arthrostim to adjust your spine. It is unique because it produces rapid thrusts at a rate of 12 times per second. This creates specific adjustive energy (force) and a barrage of afferent/information that the nervous system can use to modify dysfunctional patterns.

The Arthrostim Adjustor is especially useful on those patients who have brittle bones (osteoporosis) or are experiencing significant pain. Children and others who are apprehensive and who do not care for the “popping” can benefit where a LIGHT AND GENTLE THRUST is indicated.

 

 

 

 

Cranial Facial Release

Cranial Facial Release or CFR is an advanced endo-nasal cranial technique that has been successfully used in the treatment of various neurological and structural disorders for over 30 years in the United States and Canada. We are the first office(s) qualified to offer this advanced technique in Europe! And, Dr, Matthew Schaer is the ONLY Advance Practitioner in Europe!

The objective of CFR technique is to induce mobility in the cranial system, thus facilitating sinus drainage and normal cranial respiratory function. The technique is performed by inserting tiny balloons in the nose (specifically the naso pharynx) then quickly inflating them in order to:

  1. Mobilize the cranial bones (sutures)
  2. Unlock cranial fixations (sutures)
  3. Open Breathing passageways
  4. Correct cranial aberrations

Leander Table

Chiropractie Den Haag is the ONLY practice in The Hague to utilizes the Leander Flexion Table. This table combines two biomechanical activities: Distraction (to pull apart) and Flexion (to bend). Some of the Benefits from using this table include: Increase the intervertebral disc height. Traction reduces or eliminates disc protrusions (Hernias). Decreases intra-discal pressure by creating a centripetal force on the protruding disc allowing it to assume a neutral position. The Leander table can help remove subluxation (Segmental dysfunction) of the facet joints and restores physiological motion to this articulation. In addition our clients find it very comfortable especially older and osteoporotic patients.
