Dr. Monte Venis has studied and practiced chiropractic for more than 35 years. His experience and knowledge base can be helpful for pain reduction, injury treatment, and ongoing wellness.
We frequently use the Diversified technique, which is the most common form of chiropractic adjustment and the one you are probably most familiar with already. After determining where the spinal bones seem to be out of position or moving improperly, your chiropractor applies a carefully directed and controlled pressure to the spine vertebrae done by hand.
Dr. Venis has been practicing the technique for decades, with his ability to treat lower back pain, whiplash, neck pain, headaches, and other ailments. Most patients happily experience relief after treatment.
Activator is a chiropractic treatment instrument technique that utilizes and delivers a low force gentle treatment to the spinal vertebrae. The activator instrument may be preferable for children, seniors, or people with arthritis.
Dr. Venis will determine where and how to apply the technique or if another method is better suited to your needs.
The Cox Technic flexion-distraction method stretches and also decompresses the spine. The experience can reduce pressure on discs and nerves, while also allowing the vertebrae and facet joints to move into correct their position, thus reducing lower back pain.
The technique requires a Cox flexion-distraction table with several moving parts. The doctor slowly and gradually adjusts the table to gently stretch the spine while also applying hands-on adjustments. Patients with back pain, scoliosis, sciatica, and a variety of other conditions can achieve greater wellness with occasional treatment this way.
This treatment supports the effectiveness of your other adjustments. An intersegmental traction table massages your spine with rollers that relax and elongate the muscles, improve circulation, and improve joint function.
Trigger point therapy treats muscle pain due to a variety of causes. You may have constant stress in your life, or you may be dealing with tight muscles after a fall or accident.
Our trigger point massage therapy finds those knots of tension, built-up fluid, and toxins, and releases the stress with carefully applied pressure. It brings you the pleasant benefits of massage along with the targeted approach of chiropractic care.
Myofascial release is a therapeutic form of muscle therapy that treats the muscles and connective tissue (facia).
Unlike a simple massage, Back and Neck Pain Center of Clearwater provides myofascial release with an emphasis on healing and restoring your posture, flexibility, and strength. Think of it as improving the way your body feels and moves, rather than simply relieving stress.
The power of electrical impulses can be harnessed and directed to treat muscle pain and spasm. We use electrical muscle stimulation (or EMS therapy) with a variety of settings available to achieve different effects.
After determining which muscle groups could benefit from electrical stimulation, we place adhesive electrodes on the skin. Dr. Venis will choose the appropriate EMS setting, such as micro-current to promote healing or interferential to reduce pain and muscle spasm.
EMS causes the muscles to contract. There’s slight tingling, but the procedure should not be uncomfortable. The process can start with very low voltage to allow your mind and body to acclimate to the sensation.
We can also heal soft tissue and muscle injuries or reduce muscle spasms by using therapeutic ultrasound. In chiropractic care, the high-frequency sound waves of ultrasound work as a micro-massage.
Benefits of therapeutic ultrasound include increasing blood flow, reducing swelling, stimulating cellular repair, and relaxing stiff joints.
