CHIROPRACTIC SERVICES

CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS
- Gentle hands-on adjusting technique that repositions joints in the spine and in the extremities for optimal function. Adjustments allow for the flow of nerve energy to reach the organs, tissues and muscles so that the life force energy is fully expressed. The result is improved health and well-being. Personalized treatment plans are implemented for fastest recovery.

ACTIVATOR ADJUSTING - This utilizes an adjusting tool that produces a repeatable measurable force that is applied to the joints to correct malfunction. It is a wonderful tool to be used on babies, those with osteoporosis, or those who find manual adjustments uncomfortable.

APPLIED KINESIOLOGY - This is a system of evaluating body function that utilizes muscle testing and reflex testing to determine functional problems in the body.

PHYSIOTHERAPIES - These include ultrasound which is a modality for deep muscle therapy. It is used to decrease muscle spasm and scar tissue formation produced from old injuries. Plus it reduces swelling and promotes healing in new injuries. Electrotherapy is a modality which promotes pain relief by stimulation of the natural pain killers in the body as well as promotes healing in the body. Intersegmental traction is a therapy used to open up the joints of the spine stimulating water imbibition (absorption of fluid into the spine providing nutrition and expansion of the disc). It also stimulates the ligamentous fibers of the spine for greater strength

ACUPUNCTURE - A system which is used to balance the energy flow in the body by the placement of needles in specific areas along meridians (which are life force energy pathways). When blockages occur in these channels dysfunction and dis-ease occur. A stimulus can be placed on these acupuncture points to balance the chi energy.

HAIR ANALYSIS - A sample of hair can be analyzed for its mineral content as well as the presence of heavy metals and toxicity within the body.

MASSAGE THERAPY - Licensed massage therapists trained in a variety of body working techniques are available. Massage therapists are trained in applying pressure or vibration to the soft tissues of the body, including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Therapy can be applied to parts of the body or successively to the whole body, to heal injury, relieve psychological stress, manage pain, improve circulation and relieve tension. Where massage is used for its physical and psychological benefits, it may be termed "therapeutic massage therapy" or manipulative therapy.

COMPREHENSIVE BLOOD ANALYSIS - The blood chemistry from a CBC and SMAC lab report is analyzed for nutritional deficiencies and organ dysfunction.

FOOD ALLERGY TESTING - A blood sample is taken and challenged with a variety of foods and spices to determine if the patient has an allergic reaction to the foods that he or she is ingesting. The severity of reaction is measured and a guideline of food rotation schedules is suggested so that the patient can decrease his or her exposure to reactive foods.

NUTRITIONAL CONSELING - A questionnaire combined with a thorough history and kinesiology exam are used to gather information regarding the nutritional state and health challenges a patient is experiencing. Herbs, vitamins, glandulars, homeopathy and professional grade nutracudicals are used to correct nutritional imbalances and organ dysfunction. Life style modifications, including exercise programs, are implemented. Detoxification programs are available to assist in removing toxic stress and promote optimal function of the lymph, intestine, liver and kidney systems. Studies have shown that toxic build up is a contributing factor to the development of cancers and degenerative diseases.

EAR CONING - This is a method of removing ear wax and toxins while helping sinus and ear infections. This can safely be used on infants.

SALIVA HORMONE TESTING - Saliva samples are collected and sent to a lab to determine the hormonal content and balance. Adrenal stress, female hormones, and post-menopausalprofiles are available.

BACH FLOWERS - Holistic remedies used to balance and harmonize the patient through the personality through the bodies own physical system to fight disease and associated stress. They work on the emotional state of the patient. It changes negative attitudes into positive ones which result in heightened peace and harmony within the disturbed person. These formulas were discovered by Dr. Ed Bach who observed that the emotional and mental state of the persons affects the physical state of the body.
