Nerve impulses flow from the brain down the spinal cord and through the nerves, to every cell, tissue, organ and system of the body. These impulses can be disrupted when vertebrae lose their normal position or motion. This is called a subluxation. Subluxations are commonly caused by injury, repetitive activities and stress. Chiropractic adjustments help re-establish the normal function of the nervous system by restoring the correct position and motion of the vertebrae.
Treatments are not just limited to the spine. The body has joints in other areas, including the shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, hip, knee, and ankle/foot. Adjustments to the extremities are just as comfortable and beneficial as those performed on the spine.
In order to better prepare our patients for adjustments, as well as aid in the healing of muscles, we often utilize physiotherapy. The various therapies we offer are moist heat, ice packs, electrical muscle stimulation, interferential and ultrasound.
Massage encourages healing by promoting blood flow, increasing lymphatic drainage, improving muscle and connective tissue elasticity, and relieving stress. Like chiropractic, massage is safe and beneficial for people of all ages and stages of health. There are several different types of massages, each focusing on a slightly different therapeutic benefit. We offer Swedish/relaxation massage, myofascial release, deep tissue, and craniosacral therapies. Your doctor can help you to determine which type(s) best fits your needs and will work in conjunction with the therapist for optimal results.
We provide a full line of vitamins and herbal remedies to enhance our patients’ healing and overall health. We sell only the highest quality pharmaceutical grade supplements produced by reputable companies. Feel free to ask your doctor any questions you may have about improving your health naturally through diet and nutritional supplements.
