How We Practice

 

Structural balance, strength and flexibility are key factors to regaining, maintaining and maximizing physical health. Because most structural imbalance involves multiple factors, our approach to resolving it is threefold.

  • First: we provide gentle, low-force adjustments to the joints. Misaligned, dysfunctional joints are the root cause of many types of dysfunction.

 

  • Second: we offer soft tissue therapies, which allow your muscles to release their tight hold. Not only will you feel more relaxed, but oxygen and nutrients will have an easier time reaching your muscles, allowing them to heal and properly support and move your properly aligned joints.

 

  • Third: we teach you how to take care of your body, with rehabilitation exercises and stretches that are specifically geared for your condition. Teaching your body proper posture and correcting faulty movement patterns is key to maintaining health over the long haul.

  • In Addition: we provide nutritional guidance and recommendations so that your body has all the building blocks it needs to flourish.  Your daily food choices are most important! We also offer well researched and highest quality supplements to the diet containing several different formulations to fit your individual needs.

Chiropractic Technique

 

Based on your individual needs, the Doctor will custom-tailor a treatment plan using some or all of the following techniques:

  • Low-force adjustments. Low-force, specific chiropractic adjustments are a safe and gentle way to correct dysfunction in the cranium, spine, pelvis and extremities. This involves holding specific manual pressure to the area being adjusted. The pressure is applied directly on a joint or bone and is easily tolerated. Sometimes the affected joint is slowly moved through a range of motion as the pressure is held steady.

  • Other techniques include Active Release, acupressure, cranio-sacral, and logan basic methods. These techniques focus on manipulating the ligaments and tendons, allowing for less stress and improved movement patterns of the joints.

  • We focus primarily on low-force adjustments, however, when appropriate we also perform traditional, specific high velocity chiropractic adjustments utilizing Gonstead technique.

Other Services Offered

  • Massage therapy: (COMING SOON!)Traditional therapeutic massage helps release muscle tension − and it feels great too! Whole body, sports specific, aromatherapy and deep tissue are utilized.

 

  • Cranio-sacral therapy: Cranio-sacral therapy gently manipulates the cranial bones, sacrum and muscles to ease restricted nerve passages and allow unobstructed movement of the cerebrospinal fluid.

 

  • Rehabilitation exercises: Rehabilitation exercises teach your body new ways of holding itself. We'll guide you through the right exercises for different stages of your healing − teaching you stretching, core stabilization, strengthening and posture modification − without overwhelming you.

 

  • Connective tissue release: These therapies encourage tense muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia to release their tight hold. Sometimes they need strong stimulation with deep tissue massage, ischemic compression, Graston instrument assisted or Active Release techniques; other times gentler methods such as active assisted stretching and stretch & hold are most effective.

 

  • Physical Therapy Modalities: We utilize ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation and at times spinal traction devices.

 

  • Nutritional Support: Based on your specific needs, as well as your overall level of interest, we can help you with a diet plan, supplementation and detailed detoxification programs.
