Axis Chiropractic : The most modern up to date treatment methods for musculoskeletal injuries, chronic pain and nerve impingement syndromes.
Dr. Jose I. Muniz, D.C.
In 2002 April, At Parker College of Chiropractic he earned a Bachelors of Science in Anatomy and Physiology. He also earned his greatest accoplishment, which was his Doctorates in Chiropractic (D.C.). Dr. Muniz chose PCC because of the bachelors in Anatomy and Physiology that they offered, and most importantly, because they taught him nine well accepted chiropractic techniques. He felt this was very important, since not every body is the same. He feels that the body type and condition that the person has chooses the technique. Here is a list of the techniques that he practices:
This is standard osseous (bony) adjusting of the full spine. There are some 58 "set-ups" for correction of the spine (called spinal manipulation), and some 140 for correction of extremities (called extra-spinal manipulation), such as used for knee, ankle, elbow, shoulder, and wrist.
A full spine, x-ray specific technique using a individualized protocol and very thorough chiropractic diagnostic procedures, including x-ray, MRI, palpation, spinographs, instrumentation and the use of individual Gonstead tables.
A table-assisted technique for the full spine with standard protocols, using a drop-piece on the Thompson table for the adjustment. This technique is more comfortable for those who do not like to here the "popping noise".
Upper Cervical Technique
Originating with the famous "toggle recoil" of chiropractic's historical developer, B.J. Palmer, the technique concentrates on correction of a singular vertebra, the atlas and sometimes the axis (C2). This technique is very effective for people that suffer from headaches.
Sacro Occipital Technique
A technique which assesses the patient using a number of particular physical indicators to determine which of three primary categories the patient is presenting with. This in turn gives rise to a specific procedure for that category, along with further ancillary procedures to work with the patient's skeletal, cranial, and neurological systems in order to restore a more optimum level of balance and function. This technique is very effective for people that suffer from headaches.
Parker teaches both the basic and advanced technique, which uses a percussive instrument to deliver the chiropractic adjustment, and incorporates a specialized diagnostic system. This technique is good for people who do not like the popping noise associated with diversified and gonstead.
A spinal technique which utilizes a motorized table to assist in the vertebral correction, in which the adjustment is delivered to the patient during the motion of the table. This technique helps tremendoulsy to alleviate compression in the spine and to alleviate disc bulges. It gently pulls the spine apart like an accordion, this creates a traction along with a flexion/extension in the vertebrae. The result is a more flexible spine that can handle more compression. People that suffer from pain while sitting benefit greatly from this technique.
Applied Kinesiology Technique
The muscle testing work of Dr. George Goodheart, which gives specific indicators of weak and strong muscle groups through a series of specific challenges, and includes diagnostic procedures for finding subluxations, fixations, reflexes and cranial faults.
An advancement of the original work in trigger points, where the technique is extended so that spinal and other trigger points on the body are located while the patient is led through a range of motion, rather than while static. this technique will help to balance flexibility and tone of the muscles. Tight unbalanced muscles will pull the spine out of alignment causing nerves to be impinged.
Advanced Therapeutic Exercise
Exercise that has a goal of restoring muscular balance, normal range of motion, increasing strength and rehabilitating injured muscles, tendons and ligaments.
