What We Treat
Our aim at Colonial Chiropractic is to offer our patients comprehensive chiropractic care and other natural solutions to common health problems. We combine Chiropractic Care, Physiotherapy, Massage Therapy, and Rehabilitative Exercise Programs individualized to meet your healthcare needs.
Conditions we manage:
Auto and Work Injuries
Neck and Back Pain
Painful Joints / Arthritis
Auto Accident Injuries
Car accidents tend to produce injuries despite how low the speed or minimal the impact. Initially, the pain or stiffness may not be limiting enough to miss work or see a doctor, but it may become chronic and begin to affect your daily activities. Seeing a chiropractor after a car accident may uncover any underlying injuries that traditional medicine might miss.
Dr. Yacucci is a certified workers compensation provider in the state of Delaware. There is no charge for a consultation, and no referrals are needed from your primary or work physician. We provide treatment for a wide range of work related injuries, and patients are eligible for up to 30 visits a year. We work along with numerous other practitioners and will make appropriate referrals when necessary.
Repetitive injuries, prior spinal surgeries and trauma can cause chronic pain to develop over time. Dr. Yacucci has established a treatment protocol that combines manual therapies, exercises and nutrition, as well as working along with other pain practitioners. While following this protocol, many patients have been able to decrease the use of pain medication and increase their physical activity.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrical Muscle Stimulation is an exceptional way to help the body in the healing process. This is accomplished by sending a very small electrical current into the affected soft tissue injury or muscle spasm. The therapy utilizes this current in an effort to help reduce swelling and release trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. It does this by provoking the release of the body's natural relievers of pain; relaxing the muscles and allowing a body to return to its normal state.
Therapeutic massage is an excellent method for improving overall health and musculoskeletal efficiency. Massage aids in the removal of toxins that can build up in the muscles of the body, improves circulation, and increases flexibility in both muscles and connective tissue within the body.
