ChiropracticRemoving unwanted pressure from the nerves allows your body to function more efficiently. The side effects are decreased pain, decreased inflammation, improved organ/joint/muscular function and better overall health!
Rehabilitation/Corrective ExerciseAdding corrective exercise to your regime will help your body work more efficiently. It is imperative that we move correctly day-to-day, otherwise our aches and pains will continue to come back. Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is the foundational support to each individual’s corrective exercise program. DNS is a type of rehab that focuses on the developmental process of an infant and the neural connections made during major developmental milestones of one's life.
AcupunctureAcupuncture promotes and restores the balance of energy within the body. Tiny, hair-thin needles are used to stimulate acupuncture points on the body, stimulating the flow of Qi (“Chinese word meaning “life energy”), which then sends signals to the nervous system and immune system offering information on how to inhibit pain, relieve stagnation and resolve disease processes. In Chinese medicine, acupuncture is linked to the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy, or Qi, in the body.
Auricular Acupuncture is also used, in where the focus is on the ear, which is one of many microsystem's within the body. Acupuncture can be used for any type of imbalance, such as with emotional disorders, digestive complaints, or with chronic inflammatory conditions. There will also be an option for acupuncture or dry needling during a chiropractic session, as a musculoskeletal treatment. Both dry needling and acupuncture with electrical stimulation quickly relax tight muscles that are in spasm and stimulate tissue healing. Both modalities are easy to use in conjunction with spinal manipulation and allow the patient time to relax in a quiet room. Acupuncture is beneficial to relieve stress of all kind, along with relaxing overworked muscles in active individuals.
