— Services —
— Initial Assessment —
The chiropractor will take a thorough patient history, conduct a physical exam which may include neurological screening, orthopedic testing and functional assessments to help isolate the pain source and provide a diagnosis.
— Subsequent Visits —
After a diagnosis has been given, a treatment plan will be recommended based on the individual needs of the patient. Subsequent treatments may include one or any combination of the following interventions. Soft tissue therapy, therapeutic exercises and rehabilitation, sports taping, bracing and prophylactic care, joint/ spinal manipulation/mobilizations, functional integrative acupuncture, patient education, ergonomic assessments, or appropriate medical referral when warranted.
— Medical Acupuncture —
Western medical acupuncture is a therapeutic modality involving the insertion of fine needles into the tissue; it is an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture using current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology, and the principles of evidence based medicine. Acupuncture produces many of its effects by stimulating nerve fibers in the skin and muscle. This results in the release of various substances causing local blood vessels to dilate, increasing blood flow to promote healing.
— Clinical & Athletic Taping —
Tape, braces and supports are used extensively in athletics to correct form and provide support when treating musculoskeletal dysfunction. Many athletes rely on these supports to increase kinesthetic awareness, provide stability and temporary relief from painful sprains.
— Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture —
Also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture, Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation, or an Acupuncture Facelift, is the specific use of the ancient modality to improve muscle tone and dermal contraction especially in the face and neck. Along with the functional relaxation and restoration, the facial acupuncture treatment also stimulates the production of collagen, and improves circulation. The combination of local and systemic stimulation benefits complexion, reduces the appearance of fine lines, lifts sagging areas, and promotes a health natural glow. (*though results become apparent even after one treatment, a series of 7-10 treatments is recommended for best results.)
— Custom Orthotics —
Custom orthotics are manufactured to address your unique biomechanical needs and gait imbalances- they help your body restore a natural balance and normal movement patterns reducing strain, pain and discomfort! Health care practitioners will prescribe orthotics to patients suffering from chronic foot or lower limb problems or to athletes to help maximize performance during sport. Orthotics can decrease pain, not only in the foot, but in other parts of the body such as the knee, hip and lower back.
