Services:

Chiropractic
   

  • Chiropractic is a branch of the health sciences which focuses upon the body's neuromusculoskeletal system. A chiropractor is concerned with how your body's skeletal and nervous system is functioning. Since your spine is the key highway for your central nervous system, a chiropractor is trained to use a variety of diagnostic methods to examine and treat your spine and bone structure.
  • Although the major focus of chiropractic is on the spine and central nervous system, your chiropractor is concerned with the wellness of your whole body. Since your nervous system determines how well you feel physically, mentally, and emotionally, many problems you are experiencing may be related to a problem with your spine and nervous system.

 

Acupuncture

  • Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world. Originating in China more than 2,000 years ago, acupuncture began to become better known in the United States in 1971, when New York Times reporter James Reston wrote about how doctors in China used needles to ease his pain after surgery.
  • The term acupuncture describes a family of procedures involving stimulation of anatomical points on the body by a variety of techniques. American practices of acupuncture incorporate medical traditions from China, Japan, Korea, and other countries. The acupuncture technique that has been most studied scientifically involves penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metallic needles that are manipulated by the hands or by electrical stimulation.

 

Orthotics

  • The feet are the foundation of the body.  Maintaining proper function of the feet will allow the rest of the body to perform as it should.  For many people, pain that is felt in the back, the knees or hips, even as far up as the neck, can be traced back to a problem that originates in our feet.  For example, a simple tendency towards the feet rolling inward as we walk, which often happens in association with weakness in the arches of our feet, can have profound effects on the rest of the body.  The lower leg (tibia) and upper leg (femur) will start to rotate inward to compensate for what is happening at the feet, thereby causing unusual and often painful stresses at the knees and hips.  Add to this the unleveling that will now occur at the pelvis, the shoulders, and the neck as the body attempts to right itself.  Suddenly that simple problem in the feet can be contributing to pain and causing altered biomechanics throughout the rest of the body!  In other cases it might be a foot problem like a heel spur, plantar fasciitis, neuroma, or other common causes of pain in our feet, that causes us to walk and stand differently because of the pain.  Again, this pain-avoidance behaviour can cause undue stress and now pain in the joints of the knees, hips, back, and rest of the body.  You should now be able to see that the feet really are the foundation of the body!

 

Ultrasound

  • Therapeutic Ultrasound is a common form of therapy in use by many Chiropractors.  Ultrasound works by applying powerful sound waves to the injured area.  It works by thermal effect, causing deep heating of injured tissues beneath the skin.  This increases the rate of healing of your injury.  The intensity, frequency, and depth of penetration can be adjusted to treat your specific condition properly.  Ultrasound is effective, safe, and totally painless.

 

Laser

  • Low-level Laser therapy, also known as "cold" laser or "soft" laser is one of the most recent advances in physical medicine.  A medical-grade laser can be used to help speed healing of many types of injury.  Laser light is effective, safe, and totally painless.  Laser can also be used to stimulate acupuncture points in patients who prefer laser instead of traditional acupuncture needles.  Modern medical lasers use a visible or infrared beam, and make use of specific wavelengths shown to most benefit injured tissue.

 

Rehabilitation & Exercise Prescription

  • Certain conditions require that you have an ongoing stretching or exercising program to bring you back to your normal health, and to prevent re-injury from occurring.  Doctors of Chiropractic are able to design a program that correctly addresses your health needs, while remaining comfortable for you to do.  Some cases require in-office visits to restore  your level of health, but others you can do in your own home, and at the convenience of your schedule.
