Our doctors receive ongoing training beyond the standards and have access to the latest research on chiropractic care through the Dr. Sid E. Williams Center for Chiropractic Research at Life University.
Focused on a natural approach to regaining health, improving spinal, neurological function, and optimizing wellness and overall personal performance.
Chiropractic is from Greek words meaning done by hand. Contemporary chiropractic care is focused on a natural approach to regaining health, improving spinal/neurological function and optimizing wellness and overall personal performance. It is grounded in the principle that the body can heal itself when the skeletal system is correctly aligned and the nervous system is functioning properly. To achieve this, the provider uses his or her hands or an adjusting tool to perform specific adjustments of the spinal vertebrae.
Health is more than merely the absence of disease. Chiropractors are experts on the nerve system (brain, spinal cord, and nerves to limbs and organs), and how it coordinates the activities of every cell and system of the body. By ensuring there is clear communication to all systems, chiropractors help people experience more of their innate potential for optimum health and performance.
Our functional kinesiology experts provide therapy services using personalized techniques to support your chiropractic care goals.
Sometimes you may need physical or therapeutic modalities in addition to your adjustments. These therapies will help provide you with relief and help to restore normal functional movement. These services may not be recommended for everyone. It too will depend on your specific case and findings. A few of the different modalities that we use in our offices include:
Electrical stimulation (E-stim):
E-stim therapy uses electrical pulses to target either muscles or nerves. E-stim therapy for muscle recovery sends mild electrical signals to targeted muscles to make them contract. By causing these muscle contractions, blood flow is improved, which helps repair injured muscles. This procedure helps accelerate recovery and provides relief from painful or uncomfortable symptoms.
Spinal traction is a form of decompression therapy. It helps to relieve pressure from your spine by stretching the muscles and ligaments surrounding your spine and taking pressure off of your discs. It not only helps to relieve pain, but it also helps to correct problems with your spine.
Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves that use both heat and relaxation to break down scar tissue and increase local blood flow. Ultrasound can be used to reduce pain and improve your mobility and range of motion.
An x-ray is often necessary to provide qualitative and quantitative data to determine a highly customized care plan.
An x-ray can help identify irregularities in the spinal bones, including fractures, bone spurs, as well as rule out a pathological cause of pain or numbness and tingling. Additionally, a chiropractor can analyze and measure the alignment of the vertebrae to determine if the patient has scoliosis or changes to the spinal curve. And x-rays can also indicate signs that may point to problems not directly shown by x-rays, such as torn or lax tendons and ligaments, and potential disc problems.
X-rays are an excellent tool for chiropractors to ensure an individualized care plan to improve the patient’s well-being.
Chiropractic adjustments focus on the underlying cause of improper tone and tension within the nervous system. Specific gentle contacts are made to stimulate the nervous system to pay attention to areas of the body holding patterns of tension and altered tone.
When the body carries these tensions, it becomes more susceptible to injury. Chiropractic care promotes good health prior to accidents, and also serves as a non-invasive way to eliminate acute and chronic pain caused by a variety of events.
