Chiropractic Care

I am a big believer of chiropractic care. I feel that this type of medical treatment has many preventive values. There are many reasons to seek chiropractic care. Below is a list of common reasons.

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headache
  • Whiplash
  • Strains and sprains
  • Knee Pain
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Sacro-iliac Pain
  • Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
  • Work and sports injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Limited range of motion in the back, shoulder, neck or limbs
  • General health and well-being

Chiropractic treatment is based on the concept that restricted movement in the spine may lead to pain and reduced function. Spinal adjustment (manipulation) is one form of therapy chiropractors use to treat restricted spinal mobility. The goal is to restore spinal movement and, as a result, improve function and decrease back pain.

The term “subluxation” is used by doctors of chiropractic to depict the altered position of the vertebra and subsequent functional loss, which determines the location for the spinal misalignment.

Chiropractors practice a manual approach, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventative care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.

Chiropractors also may use a combination of treatments, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a complete history and diagnosing a patient, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies (Activator Method), and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.

My favorite form is the Activator Method Technique.
The activator method is a gentle low-force approach to chiropractic care. A small device known as the Activator Adjusting Instrument is used bringing balance gently and effectively. This technique has been used safely since the 1960’s and has been studied extensively. All ages can benefit, including babies. Relief to people has been found with a variety of health conditions. This technique utilizes specific protocols for the following reasons.

  • To detect spinal joint dysfunction
  • To analyze leg length inequality
  • To identify issues with body mechanics
  • To test neurological reflexes

The above picture is an example of an Activator Adjusting Instrument. There are several other models. . The Activator provides a controlled, fast thrust that is comfortable for the patient. The body’s muscles are therefore less likely to resist the adjustment.

My chiropractor refers people to me because he believes that the individual corrective exercises I prescribe with my Body Re-Design Program help hold the adjustments he has made. For this I am so grateful.
