At Oviedo Injury & Wellness Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Oviedo office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Current correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Martin Ressler has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Are you nervous about being adjusted?
Dr. Ressler can treat your conditions with an adjusting instrument that is low force, precise and does not involve cracking or twisting. It is a spring loaded instrument (picture below) that sends a gentle force into the joint and moves it back into position. It is pain free and gets fantastic results!
Considering having disc Surgery?
If you do not want to have surgery, the flexion/distraction table is a conservative alternative that can help in the recovery of your injuries.
Developed in the 1960s by James Cox, DC, the Cox Technic is based on chiropractic and osteopathic principles noted in the Manual of Osteopathic Technique by Alan Stoddard, DO, which was written about the early 1900s manipulative procedures of John McManis, DO. Years of refining have gone into the Cox Technic, which is taught in chiropractic schools and written about in textbooks. With its hands-on approach that uses a special flexion-distraction table, this specialized table is widely used today for cervical and lumbar disc herniations, as well as to increase spinal joint mobility and non-disc spinal disorders. Tables that are suitable for the Cox Technic include features such as a long y-axis that allows you to focus on each individual segment while maintaining control.
We teach our patient’s special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your recovery by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and alignment. Dr. Ressler has trained thousands of employees from companies such as Progress Energy, Siemens and Seminole County on ergonomics. He can teach you the same techniques to reduce your chance injury in the work place.
To complement and enhance the healing effects of Dr. Martin specific Chiropractic adjustment treatment, we at Oviedo Injury & Wellness Center also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
Massage therapy does much more than reduce stress. It also works on the soft tissues (the muscles, tendons, and ligaments) to improve muscle tone and break up scar tissue. Our therapist have advanced certification in sports, massage, neuromuscular therapy and lymphatic drainage. Massage therapy stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system (which runs parallel to the circulatory system), improving the elimination of waste throughout the body. Regular massage can have the effect of strengthening and toning the entire body. At its best, massage therapy has the potential to restore the individual physically, mentally, and spiritually.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
