Here at Better Health Chiropractic we often employ spa like techniques to relax the patient prior to adjustment. This allows the body to accept the correction with ease. By complementing the adjustment with lifestyle coaching, the chiropractor and patient can work together as a team; the patient takes responsibility for their wellness. This translates to following a program including gentle adjustments to correct misalignment of the spine, exercise often in office followed by massage and lifestyle modification of better nutrition choices, and regular exercise. The different types of massage offered are Swedish deep tissue, hot stone, Himalayan Salt Crystal and different forms of deep heat therapy such as paraffin wax and mineral wraps called MediWraps are available.
Upon being accepted for care at Better Health Chiropractic, you would receive a through health history and examination. You may be given adjustments after x-ray films of the area of complaint are taken. The spinal corrections may be performed with instruments such as activator or a power tool adjuster or by hand with drop table or Palmer technique. Other techniques that we offer are A.K., Sacro-occipital / S.O.T. and cranio-sacral techniques. Computerized Spinal Decompression may be done to pull or the spurs of degeneration discs off of nerves, the pressure of combinations of degenerating discs and bony spurs may be alleviated with this decompression therapy as well. We can coach you in Physical therapy including core muscle strength training which improves posture. The improved nerve flow to the organs from spinal corrections and greater room for the organs due to better posture will allow better function including digestion and lung capacity. Improvement in organ function gives more energy and vitality!
There may be a blockage of nerve and energy flow despite a lack of symptoms such as pain. Laser puncture / Needleless Acupuncture may help this. The cold laser is used similar to acupuncture or acupressure to trigger a reaction from the body by concentrating the energy on meridian points. These points are part of the body’s energy pathways. This non-surgical treatment of neck and shoulder complaints is widely being used in the NFL and in the USPS tour de France by team chiropractors. Low level lasers penetrate energy deep into the tissue to speed healing and unblock energy flow.
If you do have pain or recent stiffness, there is a good chance that insurance will pay for your chiropractic care. But even if do not have pain or insurance coverage I urge you to consider chiropractic care as your health is your most precious possession. Together we will set goals and a plan to achieve them. Joint degeneration and scoliosis is often halted, occasionally reversed as evidenced by radiology reports that I have from the two local hospitals.
