The Ultimate Approach
The body works as a whole, not in parts. Think of a single chain link compared to the flow of your bodies structure. When held at one end and shaken side to side, it should move in a smooth chain of events. The body should work in the same way. When the body is working properly you have a well functioning system. If a “kink” occurs in the flow, dysfunction occurs. This dysfunction causes stress to the area (nerves, joints and muscles) and can cause symptoms (pain, stiffness, decreased motion, numbness/tingling, etc.) in that area and areas that work with that region. The “kink” in your motion can come from a number of things such as repetitive motion, past/current traumas, poor posture, or other different types of stressors.
Our treatment plans use chiropractic adjustments to improve joint motion and stimulate improved nerve activity, treat the soft tissue using deep tissue work (myofascial release/Gua Sha tools/trigger point therapy) to relieve muscle tension and provide pain relief. To design a personal treatment plan for you and have you feeling your best, we also like to get to know you as a person. Treating your injury is only one part of getting you to better health. We also need to look deeper into your lifestyle and see what areas can be improved upon to help prevent injuries from reoccurring. This can include:
- postural ergonomics
- exercise programs
- stretching/strengthening programs
- stress management
Treating your body as a whole instead of in parts helps the body perform at it’s peak level.
