Chiropractic care/manipulation is the art and science of being able to discover and correct areas of the spine that are not functioning properly. By correcting these areas of misalignment, fixation or inflammation, chiropractors can improve nerve flow throughout the body. Messages start in the brain, travel thorough the spinal cord within the spine and then exit out of the spine through the nerves to the body. Everything in the body, including muscles, sensations and organ/gland function, is controlled by the nervous system. Just as it is important for the blood to travel through arteries to bring oxygen to the body, it is important for messages to travel along nerves to all of the cells within the body. Chiropractic care focuses on helping to keep the nervous system healthy which results in helping the body to be healthier.
Chiropractors also utilize their techniques to help joint dysfunction outside of the spine such as in the shoulders, knees, elbows or wrists. This can help reduce pain and increase flexibility.Therapeutic and Rehabilitative Exercise
Patients receive therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises to strengthen and stretch postural muscles and supportive muscles of joints. A joint will perform much better when the muscles supporting it are balanced. This can help with reducing pain and improving flexibility. For example, low back pain can be greatly reduced by strengthening the core.Physical Therapy Modalities
Electric Stimulation and Ultrasound are often used to reduce muscle spasm, reduce inflammation and to cause the body to release its own natural pain relievers called endorphins.Nutritional and Vitamin Protocols
Nutrition and vitamin protocols are used to help people optimize their health. This can range from using vitamin D to create bone health, immune health and relieve pain to giving magnesium for muscle spasms and cramps. One very important focus is bringing down inflammation. Everything you put in your body either produces or inhibits inflammation. We now know that chemical inflammatory markers are responsible for many things other than just pain. For example, inflammation is involved in plaquing of the arteries, high cholesterol, diabetes and arthritis. We teach people about the use of omega 3 fatty acids, or fish oils, to reduce inflammation. We also teach which foods are pro and anti inflammatory.Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is used to reduce muscle spasm, increase circulation, increase lymphatic flow and most importantly, to reduce stress. Massage therapy is a great compliment to chiropractic care and focuses on keeping the muscles healthy and balanced. We also offer a special massage therapy technique, called myofascial release. This techniques helps to free adhesions within muscle and its casing.
