Doctors of Chiropractic focus on the neuromusculoskeletal system and have a holistic approach to your body's overall wellness. They diagnose and treat a variety of conditions. Chiropractors use soft tissue and myofascial therapy, various modalities (ultrasound, electrotherapy), chiropractic adjustments, exercise prescription, custom foot orthotics and other advice to correct mechanical fixations in the spine and joints, relieve pain and return the body back to normal function. Chiropractic has been found to be effective in the treatment of low back pain, neck pain, headaches, etc. Chiropractors work with patients of all ages to relieve initial joint and muscle pain, give rehabilitative care and preventative maintenance care to help you stay as healthy as you can be.
Acupuncture can help to relieve pain and stress and increase vitality. We use fine high-grade surgical steel disposable needles, which are used once only to stimulate acupuncture points in your body. It not only helps to eliminate or reduce pain, but also increase your physical functioning and give you a greater sense of well being. Recent studies have found acupuncture to be safe and effective in the treatment of arthritis of the knee, shoulder pain, low back pain, headaches, neck, hip, and elbow pain, etc.
Do you have foot, knee or lower back pain? This may be due to ill-fitting footwear or improper foot mechanics. Custom foot orthotics can help correct these compensations and allow you to walk, run and live pain free. They correct improper foot biomechanics in order to affect your body from the ground up. Many health insurance plans cover these, so be sure to inquire about your plan.
