My Chiropractic Philosophy
Chiropractic, although many times misunderstood, is about helping people live healthier, fuller lives. Chiropractic is based on the fact that the nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and system in the body. The chiropractic approach to better health is to detect, reduce, and help prevent nervous system dysfunction caused by subluxation of the spine.
In simplest terms, a subluxation is when one or more of the bones of your spine (vertebrae) move out of position and create pressure on or irritate spinal nerves. Doctors of Chiropractic locate subluxations and reduce or correct them. This is done through a series of chiropractic adjustments specifically designed to correct the subluxations in your spine. These adjustments stimulate self-healing, the way our bodies were naturally designed to overcome disease and distress. Adjusting subluxations can help your body heal itself from back pain, neck and shoulder pain, joint aches and pains, sciatica and many other issues.
Chiropractic Techniques I Use
Hands-on technique that uses high velocity, low amplitude adjustment to correct misalignments and remove interference to the nervous system. Diversified techniques help restore proper movement and alignment of the spine and alleviate joint dysfunction.
Hands-on technique that utilizes a specialized table that realeases (drops) when pressure is applied to the area of misalignment. Drop technique help restores proper movement and alignment to the spine and alleviate joint dysfunction.
Chiropractic Adjusting Tool
Small, hand-held instrument that delivers a quick, low force impulse to the area of misalignment which restores proper movement and alignment to the spine.
Chiropractic Tools I Use
Moist hot packs are utlized to help reduce muscle tension and promote relaxation which reduces pain and improves mobility.
Muscle stimulation uses electrodes to deliver a current into the soft tissue to reduce pain, improve blood flood, and increase range of motion in the muscle.
Cold gel packs are utilized with acute injuries to help reduce pain and decrease swelling & inflammation.
Therapeutic ultrasound delivers a deep, thermal effect on the muscles which stimulates a healing response. An increase in circulation accelerates healing which in turn increases your range of motion and reduces pain.
Deep Tissue Massage / Trigger Point Release
Trigger points are thought to arise from stress of overuse and trauma which can cause adhesions between muscles and fascia layers. Trigger points can lead to muscle stiffness and tenderness and result in decreased range of motion. Trigger point release reduces pain, increases muscle mobility, and reduces stiffness.
