Primary Therapy or Adjustment
This occurs when a chiropractor applies force to realign the vertebrae of the spine.
Soft tissue and massage therapy help relieve pain and muscle spasm. Some common adjunctive therapies are massage therapy, trigger point therapy, somatic therapy, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, acupressure point therapy, and rolfing.
Chiropractic understands the importance of exercise when it comes to living a well and healthy life. Chiropractic promotes and supports regular exercise because it has been scientifically shown to increase health by lowering blood cholesterol levels, strengthening the immune system, lowering body fat, increasing one's sense of well-being, and increasing muscle strength, tone and function. It also helps the body recover from injury.
Maintaining a regular stretching program once the wellness stage of treatment has been completed will help keep tissues flexible and loose, increasing mobility and preventing the development of new injuries.
Doctors of Chiropractic receive thorough training in the areas of human diet and nutrition. They can design a personalized dietary or nutritional program to minimize the risk of developing health conditions and to assist your body in achieving and maintaining optimal health and superior wellness.
Chiropractic care is more than just a health and wellness program. It is a lifestyle. Chiropractors are trained to help you make healthy lifestyle decisions so that you can continue to live a life full of health, wellness, and vivacity.
