PEAK HEALTH, MEANS WHOLE BODY HEALTH!
You were born to be healthy. Proper structural alignment, nervous system function, and muscle function are all important factors for optimal health. Brain and spinal health have a profound influence on bodily function. Misalignments of the spine can stress the body leading to pain and dysfunction throughout the whole body including your spine, muscles, nerves, brain, and organs.
These misalignments are caused by stress (physical, chemical, and emotional). Minimizing and adapting to stressors allows the body to function more efficiently. Correcting misalignments helps reduce stress on the muscular system and nervous system as well as restore proper communication within the body. Chiropractic care is most effective when paired with nutrition and lifestyle changes.
Taking proper care of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems can help you stay out of pain to enjoy your favorite activities. We use several different chiropractic methods to correct misalignments and restore function.
Gentle Adjustments, Percussion (vibration therapy), Pelvic Blocking,
Traction, Activator, and Gentle pressure
Functional Wellness is a holistic, patient-centered approach to health that gets to the root cause by looking at the whole person, not one specific area. It combines all areas of health including Nutrition, Lifestyle, Exercise / Movement, Hydration, Sleep, Stress Management, Environment, Detoxification, Targeted Supplementation, and more. We work to build a solid foundation for health and wellness.
When the fish is sick, change the water! Symptoms are the body’s way of telling us that something is wrong or needs to be addressed. It is giving you a signal that something needs to be changed. Changing our environment through lifestyle is difficult, but the benefits can be life changing. Benefits can go beyond symptom reduction such as increased energy, improved mood, and improved overall health.
We use many different tools such as a comprehensive health history, current lifestyle habits, physical exam, Kinesiology Testing, and patient goals. Laboratory tests provide valuable insights but can be expensive. We are very selective of ordering tests and do not recommend any tests unless they are absolutely needed.
To help assess the function of the body, we use Kinesiology Testing or manual muscle testing. Kinesiology Testing is a diagnostic tool which gives immediate feedback through the muscular and nervous systems to quickly, efficiently, and effectively identify what areas of the body need support and how to support them.
Kinesiology Testing checks for neurological response or neuromuscular firing. This allows a more detailed view on what is going on in the body. We can assess different aspects of health such as the nervous system, muscular system, and organ systems to select the best treatment for each individual. Treatments may involve specific chiropractic adjustments, joint mobilization, manual muscle release, cranial techniques, neurolymphatic points, trigger points, clinical nutrition, and dietary management.
MANUAL MUSCLE RELEASE / MANUAL MUSCLE ACTIVATION:
Manual Muscle Release is a technique used to address the muscles, tendons, and nerves of the body. With manual muscle testing, we can identify exactly which muscles are not firing properly (turned off) and get them engaging or firing.
Through accidents, injuries, physical activity, poor posture, microtraumas, and other stressors, muscle function can become dysfunctional leading to overcompensation. Over time, these muscles get fatigued causing pain, reduced movement / mobility, or injury.
We use Manual Muscle Release to get these muscles to activate or fire. This is done by applying pressure to certain muscles and moving them through a specific pattern. This helps stimulate the muscle, release restrictions, reduce pain, reduce compensation, improve mobility, improve muscle firing, and improve movement.
SPORTS NUTRITION, PERFORMANCE,
In sports, every inch matters. Athletes will do anything to gain an edge on their opponents. We have helped optimize performance for professional, collegiate, and high school athletes. Peak performance is highly influenced by structural integrity, muscle function, nutrition, and recovery. We have found that addressing the whole body not only makes athletes healthier, but allows them to take seconds off their time, have more power, recover quicker, and more.
Chiropractic is a growing profession with all major professional sports and most collegiate schools having a team chiropractor. Chiropractic care has countless benefits in keeping players healthy, preventing injuries, speeding recovery, boosting performance, improving muscle firing, improving range of motion, enhancing balance and coordination, improving accuracy, and reducing pain.
The human body is electric. Every thought, sensation, and movement require electrical impulses. Interrupt these, and you have a problem. It’s easy to see how an injury would disrupt the body’s delicate bioelectrical field. What you may not realize is that there are frequencies that balance and energize these electrical fields to rapidly facilitate healing.
The use of electricity for diagnostic imaging and treatment is widespread throughout many healthcare professions. Radiologists use MRI imaging using the body’s electrical fields. Orthopedists use electrical stimulation to accelerate the healing of fractured bones. Neurologists employ it in nerve regeneration.
We use Microcurrent Therapy to deliver electrical impulses that stabilize and energize injured tissues. The premise behind Microcurrent Therapy is that all cells and tissues have a unique electrical signature. Targeted frequencies have been identified for virtually all tissues and organs, and Microcurrent Therapy can be used as a painless passive therapy to target them.
Kinesiology Tape can be used for a variety of structural applications. Common uses are for muscles, joints, nervous system, and circulatory system. This specific tape is elastic and is applied to speed the healing process. Kinesiology Tape can provide support to muscles, improve mobility, improve quality of movement, and enhance recovery. It may also help reduce inflammation and swelling through the lymphatic system.
