We provide the following services for acute and chronic conditions: Chiropractic Adjustments We provide gentle and specific manual adjustments to help restore proper joint motion. Drop table and gentle mobilization techniques are also offered. These techniques can be applied to the spine, extremities and jaw. Flexion/Distraction Therapy This therapy can provide relief of pain as a result of a lumbar disc herniation, stenosis, arthritis, and spondylolisthesis. It is a gentle way to take pressure off the discs and posterior joints. The motion improves blood flow and helps decrease inflammation. Massage Soft tissue massage is offered for treatment and healing of acute injuries and chronic conditions. The type of massage and the pressure applied depends upon the individual, the diagnosis and the phase of recovery. Graston Technique Graston Technique utilizes hand held tools that detect and break up scar tissue in muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. Studies have shown this technique also stimulates formation of new collagen fibers. Ultrasound Ulltrasound therapy uses sound waves to improve blood flow, decrease inflammation and help facilitate healing of soft tissue injuries of the spine and extremities. Rehabilitative Exercise Instruction The body is designed to move. We want to make sure it is moving properly and as pain-free as possible. Our personalized exercises help to stabilize the spine and coordinate proper muscle recruitment and balancing. Balance Training By stimulating your proprioceptive fibers in your joints with specific exercises, it can improve your balance, help strengthen your body, and help to protect you from future injury. The exercises are started on a stable surface and we then advance you to an unstable surface, such as a BOSU, gym ball or TRX suspension training. Nutritional Counseling Good health is contingent upon a nutritious way of eating. It can be quite confusing and frustrating these days trying to figure out the fads and myths from the scientifically sound and unbiased nutritional research. We can provide you with the information needed to eat a delicious, healthy, and socially responsible diet. Weight Loss The program* is based on a whole foods diet, so you eat real, healthy food! There is no calorie counting or weighing/measuring of food. This program is anti-inflammatory, hypoallergenic and low glycemic index. This customized approach is about teaching your body to burn fat rather than sugar for fuel, thus maximizing your metabolic efficiency. The goal is to make healthy choices that last a life time so you can put an end to dieting! This program may also be very beneficial if you suffer from: irritable bowel; insulin resistance; autoimmune disease; type 2 diabetes; osteoporosis; high blood pressure; high cholesterol; or inflammatory bowel disease. *Consumption of healthy animal protein is advised. Food Allergy Testing and Counseling We can assist you in an elimination diet and/or blood testing to help determine food allergies and sensitivities. We also provide you with information and resources to help you purchase, prepare and enjoy your food. If eliminating certain foods in your diet is new to you it can be quite overwhelming. Let us help make it easier.
