Chiropractic

Chiropractic

Chiropractic is simple, effective and remarkably safe. Chiropractors assess, diagnose and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal system (i.e. joints, muscles, nerves, tendons and bones), without drugs or surgery. Chiropractic is based on these few simple concepts:

  1. Our body is self-healing and self-regulating
  2. Our Central Nervous System co-ordinates every cell, muscle and organ in our body
  3. Interference to our Central Nervous System disrupts our body’s ability to run itself effectively. This is usually caused by a locked up joint and tight surrounding muscles. This is called Subluxation.
  4. Chiropractors correct subluxation by applying a gently, precise adjustment to the spine, thereby restoring communication between the brain and the body.

Chiropractic simultaneously relieves pain, improves structure, restores nerve communication to the body and boosts our health and well-being. Health returns with scheduled adjustments and your good health choices. Chiropractic has helped many millions of people get well and stay well.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression

Involves stretching the spine, using an advanced, computerized traction table with the goal of relieving back, leg or neck pain. Spinal decompression tables use the same basic principles that Chiropractors use. Decompression therapy is applied with the goals of relieving pain and promoting an optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerative or herniated discs. It is the goal of traction to create a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of the herniated or bulging disc material. It is also creating a lower pressure in the disc that will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances into the disc.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy is a breakthrough treatment in pain management and mobility restoration.

With shockwave therapy a high intensity sound wave interacts with the tissues of the body. The application of acoustic waves creates capillary micro-ruptures in tendon and bone and significantly increases the expression of growth indicators. The result is a domino of beneficial effects such as stimulation of collagen, neovascularization ingrowth, reduction of chronic inflammation, and dissolution of calcium build up and scar tissue. This creates an environment where quick healing can occur and a return to normal is experienced, functionality is restored and pain is relieved. Success rate of this therapy is 77%-80% and sometimes even higher for certain conditions.

Usually there is a reduction of pain after the first treatment. There can be some discomfort during treatment but since it lasts on average of five minutes it is tolerable. For many there is no discomfort at all. It is recommended that patients refrain from physical activity in the region for 48 hours after treatment. Most conditions require three to five sessions lasting approximately 5-15 minutes. Treatments are usually done 3-10 days apart depending on the condition.

Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy

Is light and light emitting diodes tuned to a specific wavelength . This allows the light to be focused into powerful beams which can irradiate diseased or traumatized tissue with photons. These photons are partially absorbed by the cell and used to alter cellular function.The result is a cascade of physiological reactions leading to restoration of normal cell function. This is why laser is so effective in reducing or eliminating pain. Laser is non invasive and non toxic. The therapy is completely safe and has no adverse side effects.

Conditions treated:

  • Eliminating pain-acute or chronic
  • Restore normal range of motion
  • Decrease stiffness
  • Muscle spasms
  • Musculoskeletal conditions
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injury
  • Wound healing

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy

It a gentle, hands-on method that supports every system in the body, releasing tension and enhancing your body’s own ability to heal. Craniosacral therapy taps into a motion called the craniosacral rhythm that can be felt most strongly at your head (cranium) and spine (sacrum). The craniosacral rhythm is created by a “wave” of fluid which continuously ebbs and flows in the space around the brain and spinal cord. Because your body is connected in all its parts, the rhythm can also be felt throughout your tissues. Tension anywhere in the body can restrict the flow of the craniosacral rhythm. The therapist uses a gently touch, often less than a dime’s weight, to subtly correct the rhythm which allows tension to spontaneously release, allowing for positive change to occur in the body.

Which systems does it help the most

Nervous System: Releasing tension that blocks the craniosacral rhythm can deeply calm the nervous system. Stress related conditions often improve including anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, and depression as well as menstrual irregularities, breathing difficulties and headaches. In addition, visceral problems, hearing difficulties, and injuries to the head or spinal cord can improve. It is also helpful in treating children with birth trauma, learning difficulties, chronic ear problems, and hyperactivity.

Circulatory System: As the body relaxes, circulation improves. Benefits include increased energy, reduced pain, improved immune system function, and faster recovery from surgery and injuries such as whiplash.

Musculoskeletal System: Craniosacral therapy provides relief for many painful musculoskeletal conditions, Even complex problems such as TMJD, fibromyalgia and arthritis, as well as sciatica or scholiasts often respond well to this gentle but profound therapy.

This therapy is suitable for all ages from infants to the elderly.

Session

For a session you lie completely clothed on a comfortable table. No oil and no traditional massage strokes are used. The therapists begins by placing the hands beneath a section of your spine often the skull or tailbone, and simply feeling or listening to the craniosacral rhythm. Hands may also be placed on your ribs, shoulders, thighs or feet, and may hold a position for some time depending on your needs. Sessions are often deeply relaxing. You may have a sense of dropping or deepening into the area your therapist is working on. You may also feel a pulsing or warmth. After a session you may feel sleepy, energized or a little scattered. Even if you fall asleep or don’t feel much of anything at first, subtle but profound changes may be occurring that will help you heal over time.

Sessions are 45 minutes
