Dr. Kuder has been serving the Osage County area since 1999. His specialty is the chiropractic adjustment followed by a combination of specific muscle techniques. He uses a low force adjusting style called Sacro Occipital Technique. For the soft tissue muscle techniques sometimes referred to as Acupressure, Active Release Technique or Myofascial Release, Dr. Kuder uses his hands to assess muscle groups/joints for tension, lack of movement or decreased range of motion. These techniques combine active movements by the patient with directed manual pressure or tension on the muscle or affected areas and joints. Dr. Kuder is a participating provider for Medicare and BCBS
Dr. Wells uses a variety of techniques as described below.
Diversified technique is a high velocity low amplitude thrust that puts motion back into the joint so that it has proper motion to decrease impingement on a nerve, help with muscle tension and allow the segment to move efficiently.
Instrument assisted adjusting is for high velocity and really low amplitude adjustments. Also known as the activator technique. This can be used on patients with an acute inflammation around the joint, elderly patients that are prone to fractures due to osteopenia and young children
IASTM is an instrument assisted soft tissue manipulation that uses tools to break up adhesions in tense muscles and helps allow the muscle and tissue to heal properly.
