Chiropractic Care and Adjustments
Chiropractic focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and their effects on your general health. Misalignment of the spine, known as vertebral subluxation, has harmful effects on your body. Chiropractors give adjustments to the spine to restore joint integrity and neuromuscular function.
A properly functioning spine and nervous system are crucial to your health and happiness, and to your body’s ability to heal itself.
Dr. Clark specializes in the “specific prone” chiropractic technique. This technique involves light, gentle adjustments of the spine to correct subluxations, to alleviate pain, and to aid in allowing the body to heal itself.
Corrective Exercises and Stretching
Chiropractic treatments can be significantly more effective when coupled with a well designed exercise program. We teach our patients how to perform exercises and stretches that will help speed up their recovery time and repair the muscles and connective tissues that may have been damaged from the past.
With a spinal injury, work accident, auto accident, or other specific injury, these stretches and exercises can be crucial to a full recovery. All of this is performed to help our patients achieve a state of health and wellness that they have been missing out of for years.
Many of our patients have habits or have made life decisions that have led them to the point of injury. Most people don’t even realize it, but they are repeating the same activities or motions, day after day, that eventually cause their body to break down and stop working.
Most have been doing it for so long, that they don’t even remember what it felt like to be healthy. They have just accepted this crippled state of living. We make it our goal to help you get back to 100%, where you can enjoy a fulfilling and happy lifestyle. You can go back to enjoying all activities in life, without the pain, without being tired, and with a new sense of wellness.
Nutritional supplements and/or healthy food choices are a key factor when your body is trying to repair itself after a injury and even after a chiropractic treatment. Your body needs the proper nutrients to function correctly and the sad truth is that most of us are doing a poor job of giving our body what it needs.
We can provide a structured nutritional program, based on your specific needs and/or injury. We may also recommend nutritional supplements, in the event your normal diet does meet the recommended nutrients. Talk to your doctor during your exam if you would like advice or diet suggestions.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings are very important to recognize problems before they lead to more serious injuries. We provide spinal screenings to schools, places of employment, malls, and other health related events.
We will be happy to bring our staff and equipment to your location and provide a quick and simple health screening for your group. Health screenings are very important for environments where work related health issues cause problems. If you would like a free health screening for your group or work place, please contact us to schedule the best time and location.
Adjusting Kids and Educating Parents
More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children. Parents seek care for conditions such as colic, ear infections, asthma, allergies, and headaches. The expertise of the chiropractor is in checking the child’s spine for misalignment that impairs the the central nervous system.
