Our Techniques and Services

Personalized Care with a Comprehensive Approach

Our chiropractic techniques at Dr. Bob Rush, Chiropractic Relief & Wellness  in Northeast Philadelphia

Our comfortable adjustment room

Each of us is different, and the care Dr. Bob provides reflects each patient’s personal needs – from the technique he chooses to use in adjustment, to the amount of pressure he applies.

He uses many adjustment techniques in his practice, and specializes in deep tissue work for chronic pain and “mysterious referred pain.”

Our deep tissue work includes:

Trigger Point

By applying direct pressure or stretching of the affected muscle, we can reduce muscle spasms and flush out accumulated toxins to allow oxygen, vitamins, and minerals into the body. read more»


Using these curved stainless steel instruments, we can successfully resolve adhesions and scar tissue, offering a pleasant sense of release. read more»
