Chiropractic Services

Whether you’re feeling pain due to a recent injury or you’re suffering with chronic pain you can now get relief. The chiropractors at Pearson Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Center will have you feeling better and enjoying your life again through a series of safe, pain-free adjustments. Conveniently located in Auburn, Federal Way and Kent, a typical visit takes just 20 minutes.

During your first visit to Pearson Chiropractic you’ll undergo a comprehensive exam including a health history consultation, orthopedic and neurological exam and x-rays, if needed. Your chiropractor may give you instructions for home treatment including heat, ice, stretching or exercises to provide temporary relief until your follow-up visit and treatment. You should allow approximately 30 minutes for your first visit.

After assessing your current health situation, you’ll receive chiropractic adjustments to help you start on the road to feeling better. You may receive heat or ice treatment to improve your adjustment results. Many patients enjoy a “massage” on a traction table after their adjustment where their muscles are relaxed, helping achieve longer lasting results from your chiropractor’s adjustment. And, it feels wonderful!

Chiropractic Treatments We Specialize In

A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is the primary chiropractic treatment method for back, neck and joint pain.

There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Some practitioners may use force and twisting, while other techniques are more gentle. Regardless of how they are performed, these techniques are intended to restore or enhance joint function with the objectives of reducing pain and resolving joint inflammation.

When vertebrae shift out of place, there is an overall systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow, our nerves, our immune system, and our minds cannot function at their highest peak.

Chiropractic adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level without any discomfort. When the body is adequately aligned, it becomes able to respond and perform as it was built to do.

The Graston Technique® is the original and most advanced form of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). Our skilled chiropractors and therapists often use the Graston Technique® to resolve pain and tightness in the body. IASTM is a treatment utilizing hand held instruments to break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions in soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and nerves).

Pearson Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Center is Graston Technique® Certified.

Myofascial tissue is a thin, strong, fibrous connective tissue that extends throughout your body to provide support and protection to your muscles and bones. Chronic neck and back pain, muscle spasms, headaches, difficulty breathing and reduced flexibility may all be due to a problem in the myofascial tissue that is tight and more rigid, rather than soft and relaxed.

Myofascial release therapy relieves pain by stretching and loosening the tightened fascia that are restricting blood flow to the area. This increases circulation and lymphatic drainage, and takes the pressure off nerves that have been compressed at trigger points.

Results can include pain relief from several conditions including: carpal tunnel syndrome, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, headaches and fibromyalgia, to name a few.

Active Release Techniques (ART) are soft tissue methods that focus on relieving tissue tension. This is done by removing fibrosis/adhesions which can develop in tissues as a result of overload due to repetitive use. This service is coming soon to our Pearson Chiropractic locations!
