Chiropractic Care - Natural Approach To Better Health

Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care alleviates pain, reduces muscle tension, increases blood flow, improves joint movement, corrects posture, and normalizes energy flow in your body.

The holistic approach is the major aspect of the chiropractic philosophy, and it is believed that the body is a self-healing organism. Chiropractic focuses on maintaining optimal health naturally and helping the body to resist disease by treating the causes of physical problems, rather than simply treating the symptoms of disease. Combining chiropractic care, proper nutrition and exercise will help you to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle and activate longevity.

Chiropractic is natural solution for treatment of:

  • Neck Pain
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Headaches
  • Sciatica
  • Radiating Pain
  • Sports Injuries
  • Posture correction
  • Muscle Pain
  • Joint Pain

Chiropractors specialize in the detection and correction of misalignments in the spine. By making small adjustments to correct spinal misalignments, and remove interference with spinal cord function, chiropractic can improve the body’s innate ability to heal itself.

Chiropractic helps you to return to pain-free life

These days, more and more people are looking to change their lifestyle, be healthy, have optimal physical performance, learn how to fight stress, learn about benefits of nutrition, and have healthy aging. Chiropractors have become more popular health care providers to educate you about necessary toward better living.

You might consider chiropractic care as fine-tuning for your body. Chiropractors focus on the nervous system (the brain and spinal cord), which manages the body’s resources to maintain a state of equilibrium and health. The brain sends messages through the spinal cord across the body’s network of nerves to deliver information to every organ and cell in the body. Any interference with nerve system inhibits the body’s ability to regulate and heal itself.

Misalignments of the bones of the spine are called subluxations. Subluxations cause interference with the nervous system. Subluxations can be caused by slips and falls, auto accidents, poor posture, poor sleeping habits, sports impacts, birth process, and even by stress.

Chiropractors specialize in the detection and correction of misalignments in the spine. By making small adjustments to correct spinal misalignments, and remove interference with spinal cord function, chiropractic can improve the body’s innate ability to heal itself.

Chiropractic care is also great for increased joint health, arthritic joint pain relief, increased performance and energy, increased sense of well-being and relaxation, improved balance and coordination, reduced degeneration and risk of injury and decreased tissue inflammation.

Our Complex Chiropractic Approach

Chiropractic Care

Spinal and joint manipulation is applied to abnormal vertebra (spinal segments) with the goal of improving functionality, reducing nerve irritability and restoring range of motion in the back. Manual manipulation is also known as chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic mobilization is referred to movement and stretching of the muscle and joints with the goal of increasing the range of motion within those areas.

Neuro Cranial Integration Technique

Neuro Cranial Integration (NCi) is a revolutionary technique that focuses on re-aligning cranial bones with the goal is to restore the optimal function of the nervous system. This re-alignment removes tension off cranial region, balances brain inside out, restores proper flow of Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) throughout the spine and the rest of the body, releases muscular and fascial fixations. NCi helps to restore balance and achieve health on all levels – structural, physical, mental and emotional. Read about NCi here…

Manual Therapy & Massage

Joint mobilizations are techniques to improve arthrokinematic motion at a joint. Manual therapy also includes soft tissue techniques, such as myofascial release, deep tissue massage, trigger point treatment to improve elasticity, reduce stiffness and spasms of involved muscles and fascia, stretch connective tissues and positional release to reset nerve receptors in the muscles and tendons to reduce tension.

Therapeutic Massage is among the most natural means of restoring and maintaining a person’s health and well-being. Massage is an integral part of chiropractic care. The advantages of receiving therapeutic massage are numerous and well documented. Therapeutic massage has been shown to be extremely beneficial for a variety of health conditions with the most prevalent being stress-related tension.

Physical Therapy

Electrical stimulation and ultrasound are used to reduce spasms, relieve pain, increase blood supply into affected areas, reduce inflammation and trigger point activity. Implementation of these modalities will assist in healing.

Therapeutic Exercises

Exercise is used to release contracted muscles, tendons and fascia; improve strength, performance and functional capacities (endurance); improve flexibility, balance, coordination circulation and respiratory capacity; promote relaxation self-awareness.

Lifestyle modifications

Assistance to develop strategies how to decrease daily stress, improve posture and balance, improve ergonomics for your home and work place, teach proper techniques to avoid back injuries, guidance with learning home care exercises, improve self–awareness.

Our musculoskeletal system was designed for physically active individuals. We have to move in order to keep our body systems healthy. Without movement and physical load we deteriorate and might develop multiple health related disorders. If you are not engaged in a physical activity program on a regular bases, your body is not receiving health-related benefits. Please visit our New York Chiropractic office to learn more about benefits of exercise, proper ergonomics and how to implement it to your every day life.

What to Expect During Chiropractic Visits

During the initial visit, health history is taken and physical examination performed with an emphasis on your spine. If a chiropractic treatment is considered appropriate, a treatment plan will be developed.

During follow-up visits, manipulation (adjustment) may be performed. A chiropractic adjustment is “the art” of using a specific force in a precise direction that is applied to a spinal or any other joint. This helps the bones to return to normal position and restores motion in joint segments.

Chiropractic adjustment rarely causes discomfort. If this is the first time you get an adjustment, your body might not expect the change a chiropractor introduces. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (as with some forms of exercise) that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours. This reaction is normal and should not alarm you.
