We strive to provide care that improves the health of the entire body with a myriad of treatment options.
General Chiropractic Care
A chiropractor is trained to employ non-surgical and non-medicinal techniques for patient pain management associated with spine-related problems. The conditions treated are many, as are the current types of treatments being employed by chiropractors. Chiropractors treat mild and acute back pain, slipped and herniated discs, pinched nerves, misaligned vertebrae, as well as headaches, earaches, leaky gut, whiplash, jaw, hip, knee, and shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, tendinitis, scoliosis, and other non-spine related disorders throughout the body. Chiropractors use manual manipulation to realign the vertebrae along the spine in order to remove pressure from the surrounding soft tissue, such as the muscles, ligaments, joints, and nerves. Along with manual manipulation, there are several other chiropractic therapies that we employ, such as cold laser therapy and light therapy, wobble chair therapy, ultrasound therapy, infrared sauna, and power plate therapy.
Natural Advancements in Chiropractic Care
- Reiki. Reiki is a form of natural healing that uses the energies of the bodies. Reiki promotes healing for many different maladies, and is very natural. There aren’t any special tools, devices, or special tables or chairs that are used in Reiki healing.
- Nutrition and Benefits of a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet. Many, though not all, spine issues and back related problems are related to obesity. Carrying too much weight on the body can cause many problems. The spine being the major support system of the physical body sustains tremendous work and pressure by carrying the extra weight. Opting for a plant-based diet can improve your health in many ways. By lowering your body weight, you give your spine some relief. The pressure on the joints, ligaments, and nerves along the spinal column will be relieved and some pains felt prior to the weight loss will be alleviated. Eating a plant-based diet means removing processed foods from your diet. This includes chips, sugar substitutes, even refined sugars. Essentially, with a plant-based diet you are eating fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, and legumes. Some other benefits besides weight loss and spinal relief include lower blood pressure and cholesterol and increased energy.
