Chiropractic Care
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.

My Holistic Approach to Wellness as Your Waldorf Chiropractor

Every year millions of Americans turn to chiropractic care for a safe, holistic and effective approach to alleviate back, neck and shoulder pain. Chiropractic care is also sought out to relieve fatigue, pain in the extremities, and general poor health. Marked long term benefits can be realized and as your Waldorf Chiropractor we believe in dealing with the real problems rather than merely treating or hiding the symptoms.

We emphasize the importance of a healthy lifestyle and do not perform surgery or prescribe drugs other than natural dietary supplements. We might be giving you some suggestions on dietary changes as well as some specific spine exercises to do. These exercises will augment your chiropractic therapy between appointments here, at your chiropractic center. Our goal as your Chiropractor is to restore your entire body to optimal health.

Our Approach is Hands On as Your Chiropractor

A misconception by many people is that a chiropractic doctor is only for providing neck pain relief or back pain relief. While chiropractic therapy does include neck pain treatment and back pain treatment it really encompasses treatment of the whole body. We take a hands-on approach to your health by adjusting the imbalances in the skeletal system, particularly the spine. Chiropractic care is a noninvasive discipline that sees the body as a system of parts that work together in balance.

Misalignment in one or more of the spinal vertebrae causes nerve impulses to be disrupted, resulting in a number of symptoms. Unusual sensations could result in different areas of your body. They may also include swelling, fatigue or sinus and allergy issues. Many patients come to a chiropractic center seeking shoulder pain relief and hip pain relief and are pleasantly surprised to find that with chiropractic care, not only are they pain free but their allergy symptoms have disappeared.

Through a series of adjustments we will adjust your spine and other areas of your skeletal system to its correct alignment. Returning the vertebrae to their correct placement will restore proper function to the nervous system and the rest of your body will follow by healing. Our goal as your Chiropractor is to realign the spinal column, affecting the body as a whole, thereby restoring you back to complete health. Our aim is to achieve this without the use of drugs or surgery.

We Can Meet Your Needs at any Age as Your Chiropractor

Our training enables me to treat patients of every age. Misalignment of the spine can occur in any point of life. It even happens during the birthing process. Falls are a common occurrence as soon children begin to walk. A young body is subjected to a lot of jolting experiences especially in their early development. Sometimes these experiences can cause physical problems later in life. Children can benefit from a visit to the family chiropractor at a young age.

As an adult or senior citizen, you can benefit from chiropractic care as well. A visit to your Waldorf chiropractor will be helpful in maintaining your mobility as you age. We’ll help you by easing joint or back pain caused by natural degenerative changes or arthritis. The force of gravity alone is a known cause of misalignment of the spine as we age. This can show up as back pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, arm pain and a number of other ailments.

As you work closely with me, your Waldorf Chiropractor, we will aim to achieve our goal. Our goal is for you to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. Surgeries and the use of prescription drugs have caused speculation. If you are looking for a safe and natural way to heal your body and maintain your health, as your Chiropractor we can help you to do that.

I Can Help You with Allergies and Sinus Problems as Your Waldorf Chiropractor

Most people that live with allergies, sinus pain, headaches and recurring infections seek conventional treatments with over the counter or prescription drugs. Results with these treatments are minimally successful. Drowsiness, anxiety, and palpitations are just a few of the common adverse side effects that may occur with these medications. If this sounds like you, you may want to talk with this Waldorf Chiropractor since we may be able to offer you another solution.

As a professional Waldorf Chiropractor we can facilitate healing. This will relieve the aches and pains from misalignment of the spine and help to alleviate allergies and sinus problems. It may be difficult to imagine how chiropractic manipulation and adjustment play a role in helping you to relieve the suffering from sinus and allergy problems. For over a century people with these illnesses have been finding relief through chiropractic care.

Through the correction of spinal misalignment, as your Waldorf Chiropractor we can alleviate the symptoms. Regular chiropractic care allows the immune system to heal and to function more efficiently. Often this is exactly what’s needed to relieve the problems caused by allergies and sinuses. If allergies or sinus ailments are troubling you, consider coming in to your family chiropractic office for a visit.

We Promote Disease Prevention as Your Waldorf Chiropractor

As your Waldorf Chiropractor our job is to help you prevent health problems from occurring in the future. We will want to help you to identify areas in your life that might be creating excessive wear and tear on your body. For example if your work requires heavy lifting or repetitive movement, we can discuss ways that you can prevent damage from these activities. Sports activities are also causes for injury. Leg pain relief and arm pain relief is often sought after by the avid golfer.

Lower back exercises will strengthen your back and we may advise you to do them. As a Waldorf Chiropractor we recognize that many factors affect your health, including the amount of exercise you get, diet, sleeping habits, home and work environment, and your heredity. We can advise you and recommend changes in your lifestyle that will affect those factors. We are your Waldorf pain relief specialist and take pride in serving you.
