Chiropractic is a conservative treatment of health problems without the use of drugs or surgery intended to reduce vertebral subluxations through specific chiropractic spinal adjustments. The goal is to restore optimal posture and spinal alignments which results in improved range of motion and reduced spinal wear and tear.

Chiropractic Biophysics CBP® Technique
Chiropractic Biophysics CBP® Technique emphasizes optimal posture and spinal alignment as the primary goals of chiropractic care while simultaneously documenting improvements in pain and functional based outcomes . The uniqueness of CBP® treatment is in structural rehabilitation of the spine and posture. The Doctors in our office utilize this advanced technique along with other modalities of care.

Sports Medicine
The Physicians in our office are equipped to work with sports injuries of all types. We work with a wide range of levels: from the preschooler in dance, to high school athletes, weekend warriors, and semi-professionals. We have been the team physicians for several semi professional teams for over a decade and a half including the Rockton Rush, Rock River Raptors, Beloit Titans. Our office has provided Chiropractic and Sports Medicine at home games for the Rockton Rush since 2005 and we currently house the Rockton Rush Training Center.

K-laser Class IV Laser
Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal. The effects of laser energy include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. During K-Laser USA Therapy, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level increasing metabolic activity within the cell. By improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) is stimulated. The cascade of beneficial effects that follows includes increased cellular function and tissue repair.

Kinesiology taping
We utilize Kinesiology tape for many conditions we treat in the office. Kinesiology tape is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It can be used to treat sports and non-sports injuries, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee and back pain. While microscopically lifting the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, it then creates a decompressive effect to the muscle and underlying fascia. It is 97% cotton and 3% nylon and wearable for days at a time, safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric, and successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions. See the science behind Rock Tape, used in our office.

Physical Rehabilitation
Caraotta Chiropractic Orthopedics utilizes physical rehabilitation as an adjunct to chiropractic to help rehabilitate various conditions through stretching restricted muscles and facilitating and strengthening inhibited and injured muscles.

Auto and Work Injuries
Individuals injured in automobile accidents should have a thorough Chiropractic examination. It is not uncommon for individuals to have undetected problems that could surface weeks, months and even years after traumatic incidents.
