CrossFit beats you up, as do many other training regimens. Here’s a look at some of the services we offer at Catalyst Chiropractic.

At Catalyst Chiropractic, we offer several services that compliment traditional chiropractic adjustments. Those services are cupping therapy, myofascial release and hypervolt therapy.

Cupping therapy is kind of trendy now, but it’s actually been around for quite some time. The suction in the cups creates a vacuum causing your skin to rise and redden as your blood vessels expand. Typically we leave cups on for between 3-5 minutes. The number of cups we use depends on the size of the area affected. Sometimes we will slide the cups across the skin.

Myofascial release is the process of using a stainless steel instrument paired with a lubricant to slide across the skin covering dysfunctional muscles. This technique is designed to break up adhesions (microscopic scar tissue) between painful, problematic muscles and their fascial covering.

Percussive massage aka hypervolt therapy is performed with the Hyperice Hypervolt. Up to 3200 RPMs can be used for warming up pre-workout, or recovery post-workout. It’s safe to say the hypervolt is easily our clients favorite modality we can provide.

If you want to try any or all of these out, reach out to us. We’d love to work with you.
