We provide a full range of services including:
- Injury Rehabilitation
- Corrective Excercises
- Nutritional Counseling
- Lifestyle Advice
Besides spinal adjustments and other chiropractic techniques, our chiropractor might also use nutritional counseling, lifestyle advice, and corrective exercises. This largely depends on the type of injury, you have, your symptoms, diagnosis, and also the types of health goals that you have. The approach that our chiropractor uses will be based on your evaluation.
A spinal adjustment will help ease pressure on nerves, promote the body’s natural healing process and align spinal discs to prevent pain from coming back. Keeping your spine in alignment offers ongoing relief from pain, stiffness and other symptoms that can stop you from being able to enjoy your favorite activities or do simple, everyday tasks.
Corrective exercises help make your muscles stronger and improve the flexibility in your joints, which reduces your risk of having additional injuries or pain. Nutritional counseling helps you learn more about proper nutrition to help you lose excess weight that can contribute to chronic pain. Lifestyle advice for pain relief involves making healthy choices throughout your day, so you can reduce your risk of dealing with persistent pain.
If you have sustained an injury or loss of mobility, our advanced training in rehabilitation and strengthening will result in a Custom Recovery Plan for you. These Plans use low-tech tools like foam rollers and stretching bands which empower you to complete rehabilitation in the comfort of your home. Additionally, we offer Kinesio Taping, McKensie exercises, and other corrective exercises to maximize your relief and results.
Beyond rehabilitation, we believe each individual has a unique nutritional requirement. Our nutrition counseling identifies the right balance of nutrients and supplements that are essential to promoting your health. We also provide long-term weight loss and management tailored to individual preference such as vegetarian or gluten-free diets.
We also provide postural screenings so that you can be checked for signs of spinal problems that need to be corrected.
