Dr. Austin uses mainly diversified and Thompson spinal adjusting techniques, as well as the Activator technique. While some Chiropractors limit their scope of practice solely to the spine, Dr. Austin also specializes in extremity adjusting.
In fact, Dr. Austin routinely adjusts shoulders, elbows, wrists (carpal bones), feet, ankles, knees, ribs and even ears with great results. In fact over half of Dr. Todd's patients receive multiple extremity adjustments along with their spinal adjustment.
Dr. Austin prides himself on being extremely proficient at extremity adjusting, a skill which some Chiropractors may be lacking.
Dr. Austin is fond of using his clinic's many low level laser therapy (LLLT) devices for the treatment of sports injuries as well. Cold laser therapy helps to drastically speed up the healing process, increase range of motion and reduce swelling, edema & inflammation! In fact, many of todays professional sports teams are utilizing cold laser therapy to get their athletes back in the game quicker.
At Austin Family Chiropractic, Dr. Austin makes use of the same exact cold laser therapy device that the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings trainers use! Both in the
clinic and on the Foxes sideline, Dr. Todd also utilizes the same exact LLLT device that the trainers for the 2011 Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins and the 2010 Stanley Cup
Champion Chicago Blackhawks used to keep their athletes in tip top shape during their championship seasons!
Dr. Todd's Thermo-Active mobile supports work beautifully to provide cryotherapy (cold therapy) and compression simultaneously. This works great for icing and compressing shoulder and knee injuries, thus taking care of 2 of the 4 components of the RICE formula: Rest, ICE, COMPRESSION, Elevation.
Dr. Austin also performs double duty on the sidelines as not only the team Chiropractic Physician for the Springfield Foxes, but also as one of two team trainers performing icing, stretching and taping as well.
