We perform advanced spinal correction utilizing a variety of chiropractic techniques. These techniques include Diversified, Leander Flexion-Distraction, Activator, and SOT (Sacro-Occipital Technique). Chiropractic care enables the body’s own inherent power to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The purpose of chiropractic care is first to remove discomfort, then to improve function, and finally to optimize overall health.
Understanding that our muscles and bones pull on and effect each other, we combine muscle and soft tissue treatment in conjunction with chiropractic manipulation. These techniques consist of massage, MRT (Myofascial Release Technique), TPC (Trigger Point Compression), PIR (Post-Isometric Relaxation), CFM (Cross Friction Massage), and IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization)
To complement and enhance the healing effects of the specific Chiropractic manipulative treatment our Doctors also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
- Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
- Aquatic Mechanical Massage
- Ultrasound Therapy
- Intersegmental Traction
- Moist heat therapy
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide complimentary screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. These screenings can also include complimentary chair massage in certain situations. Contact our Arcadia office today to arrange for a screening to be held at your event or workplace.
We teach our patients specific exercises designed to address their unique problems. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve your strength and overall health. They can also help the effectiveness of your spinal corrections and keep skeletal misalignments from returning. Muscle weakness and connective tissue strain make it difficult for joints to work properly. Specific exercises and stretches can help keep your body in balance.
We often find it helpful to “coach” our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle, full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each of our patients is a whole person. Reaching your best health and wellness is a collaborative effort between us as professionals and you as patients.
