WELLNESS CARE




When you seek out a Chiropractor because you are in pain or discomfort this is called

CONDITION BASED CARE.



Don't live with PAIN!!!
 

  
 
All nerve communications from the brain to other parts of the body
must pass through your neck. Maintaining proper cervical (neck) alignment is of critical importance.
 
                                           Back Pain
 
All sensations are carried by the nervous system, some of which are
pain, numbness and tingling. The central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) is protected by the skull and vertebral column. This is why proper vertebral alignment is of critical importance. 

 
                                            Headache
 
 
Upper cervical subluxation commonly causes tension headaches, migraine headaches, insomnia, dizziness, chronic tiredness, amnesia and many other symptoms.  

 


Many people don't realize that chiropractic care is beneficial for more than neck pain, back pain and headaches. It can also help with the shooting pain (into the arm, leg or other areas of the body) that is associated with a pinched nerve as well as extremity joint pain.
(examples of extremity joints are shoulders, hips, knees, ankles, feet, wrists, elbows, hands and jaw)

All sensations are carried by the nervous system, some of which are
pain, numbness and tingling. The central nervous system is protected by the skull and vertebral column. However, once the nerves come together, outside of the skull and vertebral column, they have no bony protection, only a thicker outer covering on the nerve itself. Therefore, these nerves can easily become irritated by extremity joint dysfunction. That is why the peripheral nervous system depends on proper extremity joint function to remain free from irritation.  
 

MAINTENANCE CARE

Sometimes patients have neck &/or back pain for years, delaying chiropractic treatment for whatever reason. These chronic areas of spinal stress & immobility lead to osteoarthritis and disc degeneration. When the pain from thier condition becomes unbearable, these patients eventually end up seeking chiropractic care.  By this time, the spinal subluxations (dysfunctional joints) coupled with chronic disease (osteoarthritis &/or disc degeneration) commonly complicate regular chiropractic care outcomes. Many times these patients can become pain free with chiropractic care BUT often need regular (usually monthly) adjustments to MAINTAIN their pain free status. Rarely, patients wait so long before seeking chiropractic care that the spinal (vertebral) joints have fused causing permanent nerve compression &/or damage.

While insurance companies cover Chiropractic Care for pain related conditions, most still DO NOT pay for MAINTENANCE care,
despite its obvious importance.

WELLNESS CARE


Wellness care is when you are pain free but still getting regular Chiropractic (usually monthly) adjustments to maintain the mobility
(movement) of your spinal joints.
Maintaining proper spinal movement helps you to avoid many common health issues.
If left untreated, these immobile spinal joints (subluxations) cause stress on the spinal ligaments, calcium deposits and bone spurs. These stresses eventually lead to osteoarthritis and disc degeneration. If still not corrected, these fixed joints may even lead to nerve damage and vertebral fusion. 

Help avoid these common health issues and optimize your health,

Spinal and Extremity Adjustments
 
 
Why is normal spinal motion important?
Normal motion of the spine allows each vertebral segment to move independently, pumping the disc (IVD) between. This pumping is necessary for normal nutrient supply and waste elimination. Extremity joint function is also important for proper mobility and peripheral nerve function.
  
Why an adjustment helps.
The bony spine protects the spinal cord. Even a small disturbance of normal spinal functioning can affect delicate nerve tissue and cause many common health problems. The chiropractic adjustment reduces nerve dysfunction and retards the degenerative process started by joint fixation.
 
Are adjustments safe?
Numerous government and private studies have found that not only is chiropractic care the preferred and most effective form of initial care, it is also the safest
   
  


 
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
 
  
 
Prescription Strength Electrical Muscle Stimulation
 
Prescription devices can only be purchased with a medical prescription for therapy and should be used under supervision of an authorized practitioner, for the following uses:
 
  • Relaxation of muscle spasms
  • Prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy
  • Increasing local blood circulation
  • Muscle re-education
  • Immediate post-surgical stimulation of calf muscles to prevent venous thrombosis
  • Maintaining or increasing range of motion
 
 
 
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
  
 TENS is a non-invasive, low-risk nerve stimulation intended to reduce pain, both acute and chronic.
 
  
Ultrasound Therapy
 
 
There are three primary benefits to ultrasound. 
 
  • The first is the speeding up of the healing process from the increase in   blood flow in the treated area.
  • The second is the decrease in pain from the reduction of swelling and edema. The third is the softening & breakdown of any scar tissue in the treated area due to the gentle massage of muscles, tendons and/or ligaments.
