Soft Tissue Specialist (id®)
In order to properly diagnose and treat a patient's soft tissue injury/dysfunction, a patient will be put through several movement assessments with Dr. Strickler. Once your soft tissue problems are targeted and diagnosed, treatment will begin to eliminate Adhesions and restore proper function. The effectiveness of this treatment protocol are almost always immediate in reducing pain and improving the patient's overall range of motion.
Manual adhesion release focuses on the most common cause of muscle and joint pain — Adhesions. Adhesions act like “glue” or "scar tissue", which limiting motion, causing pain, numbness and tingling. The Manual Adhesion Release treatment allows Dr. Strickler to remove soft tissue Adhesions thus eliminating your pain and improving your overall range of motion.
Instrument Adhesion Release is a soft tissue treatment that utilizes a specially designed instrument to reduce adhesion in muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises 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 spinal correction. 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 in health.
Shockwave Stem Cell Therapy
Strickler Spine & Sport is proud to be one of the first places in the Cedar Rapids to offer Storz Medical Shockwave Therapy. We know, however, that we won’t be the last because of the incredible results our patients have gotten from this therapy!
If you have repetitive, chronic pain or injury, we offer a natural, non-injectable way to help you heal through Shockwave Therapy. The results can even seem miraculous!
How Shockwave Therapy Works
This therapy uses sound waves sent through the body at a high speed. Your brain reacts by sending stem cells to the area to repair damage. Stem cells are always dormant in the body, ready to go anywhere that they’re needed. We simply jumpstart this healing process.
