Acupuncture

[WD_Button  id=185] Curious to try acupuncture? You might be amazed at how many of your symptoms can be successfully relieved by this 3000-year-old system of medicine. But how does it work? Increasingly, science is revealing what the ancient Chinese mapped out through centuries of clinical observation and documentation. Many acupuncture points appear to exist in areas with a high concentration of nerves and blood vessels also known as “neurovascular nodes”. These nodes reach very specific areas deep within the organ systems as well as on the surface of the body. Thus, the explanation that is easiest for most people to understand is: needling acupuncture points has a direct effect on increasing blood circulation locally and in areas that are distal to (far from) the actual needle insertion. The needles additionally activate…

Chiropractic

[WD_Button  id=185] CHIROPRACTIC: A health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation. - The World Federation of Chiropractic The spine has an important function in the body.  It protects the spinal cord, which is the central highway between your nervous system and every cell, organ, and tissue of the body.  A healthy and aligned spine gives you the ability to walk, run, jump, lift, and feel every sensation in your body. When one of the spinal bones shifts out of its normal position, there may be pressure on surrounding, joints,…

Cold Laser

[WD_Button  id=185] COLD/LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY The effects of the Low Level Laser therapy are photochemical (cold), not thermal. Hot lasers in the medical world are used for surgical precision, while cold lasers are used for healing precision. During treatment with our 635 nm laser, an interaction between your body cells and photons from the laser occurs which creates a “photochemical” reaction. The cold laser enters the body tissues, alters the cell membranes permeability, and at the cellular level is absorbed by the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the powerhouse of each cell and like an engine, they make energy. Energy is needed for all body processes. Specifically, the Erchonia PL5000 laser we use promotes the following: 1. Rapid cell growth and repair of damaged tissue 2. Faster wound healing by…

Kinesiotape

[WD_Button  id=185] Don’t you hate it when you bang your toe on the corner of a table? My first reaction is to grab it and rub until the pain stops! What most people don’t realize, is this reaction is actually scientifically proven to reduce pain!! What they also don’t realize is that this "pain gate theory" is actually mimicked by kinesiology tape. Everyone has seen this tape on the Olympians the last few years. It has been become more and more prevalent as athletes, as well as the general population,realize the benefits of taping. Kinesiology tape does multiple things. It provides neuromuscular re-education to the muscles. . It reduces pain, decreases inflammation, changes the way the muscle responds to stimulus, and distributes the function of the area involved in injury.…

Spinal Decompression Therapy

[WD_Button  id=185] NON-SURGICAL SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a revolutionary new technology used primarily to treat disc injuries in the neck and low back. This treatment option is very safe and utilizes FDA-approved equipment to apply distraction forces to spinal structures in a precise and graduated manner. Distraction is offset by cycles of partial relaxation. Spinal decompression therapy, a distraction-based unloading and positioning technique, has shown the ability to gently separate the vertebrae from each other, creating a vacuum inside the discs that we are targeting. This "vacuum effect" is also known as negative intra-discal pressure. The negative pressure may induce the retraction of the herniated or bulging disc into the inside of the disc and off the nerve root, thecal sac, or both. It happens only microscopically each time, but…

Custom Orthotics

[WD_Button  id=185] [caption id="attachment_58" align="alignnone" width="640"] Custom Orthotics – Sole Supports[/caption] If you are like the majority of people with some degree of arch loss, either from birth or overtime, there are some critical facts you need to know.  All common foot problems, such as bunions, plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, calluses and corns, etc. are usually caused by a low arch when we are standing, walking, and running (weight-bearing activities).  There are a number of reasons why so many of us have, at varying degrees, flat feet. Mostly it comes down to body weight, gravity, and our ever-changing walking surfaces, from concrete to carpet, to tile, to wood floors.  The first two are constantly flattening the foot down against the hard surfaces we live on.  The ligaments that support the bones…
