Chiropractic Care is Not Just for Neck and Back Pain

Any number of factors, such as falls, accidents, stress, tension, or over-use can cause improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine, called subluxations. These events can interfere with the vital exchange between the nerves, tissues and organs. Although many people think of back and neck pain when they think of chiropractic medicine, in fact subluxations can result in a multitude of symptoms including:

 

Treating the source of the problem, not just the symptom

Doctors of chiropractic are trained to locate the source of pain or discomfort, even though it may actually be far from the location where the symptom is occurring- and then we correct or adjust the joints in the body to set it up to heal on its own.
The doctors of Pure Wellness will custom tailor each patient’s care. We will choose the best correction or adjustment dependent upon your age, condition, and health goals. The important aspect to remember is that chiropractic success occurs by addressing the source of the problem, not masking the symptoms.

  • Arthritis
  • Shoulder pain
  • Headaches
  • Sciatica (pain radiating down through the pelvis and back of the thigh)
  • Arm pain
  • Hip and knee pain
  • Pinched nerves
  • Disc problems
  • Muscle spasms
  • Peptic Ulcers
  • Constipation and other organ dysfunctions

Pure Wellness Massage

Massage therapy can be one of the most important steps in your chiropractic care program. Together, chiropractic and massage can facilitate the natural healing process by keeping the body in proper alignment and ensuring a free flow of nerve impulses and circulation of fluids.

Benefits of Massage

The therapeutic effects of massage are recognized by personal and clinical experience, and supported by scientific research. They include:
• General relaxation
• Improved circulation
• Muscle relaxation
• Reduction of anxiety
• Improvement in cellular nutrition
• Relief from negative effects of stress

Today’s Health Problems

Many of today’s health problems are caused by chronic stress and conditions of modern living and working. Prolonged mental and physical stress may lead to tension headaches, backaches, ulcers, colitis, blood sugar irregularities, high blood pressure and heart disease. Too much stress has also proven to impair the immune system leaving us vulnerable to many diseases and inhibiting our recovery.

Driving or riding in daily commutes, and sitting for long periods of time at work stations can tax the body. The repetitive movements required in certain occupations, such as office work (ex., computer data entry, filing or sorting), physical labor (ex., carpentry or gardening), playing musical instruments (ex., violin or guitar) and sports (ex., golf or tennis), all lead to chronic muscle tension, dysfunction and pain. Muscles shorten with chronic tension, which leads to the loss of flexibility in joints, misalignment and poor posture. Therapeutic Massage Can Help! Contact us!

Spinal Decompression Therapy

Our KDT Spinal Decompression System offers patients a painless, non-surgical and side effect-free treatment for conditions previously refractive to traditional medical care. Spinal Decompression can help relieve pain and symptoms associated with many low back and neck pathologies. Some common conditions treated are herniated discs, facet syndromes, degenerative discs, bulging discs, and spinal root impingements.  Spinal Decompression can significantly reduce recovery time over traditional therapies from several months to just a few weeks.

Spinal Decompression is a classification based application of axial traction with the intention of decompressing a compressed structure, namely a disc. It is based upon directional preference positioning and specific protocols. We administer treatment parameters at safe force levels based upon science and research standards. Decompression accelerates tissue healing with a dramatic decrease in pain and inflammation by a process called osmosis which is an interchange of fluid in and out of the discal space. Unlike all other treatment modalities, Decompression therapy actually takes pressure off of the spinal nerves, helps disc pathologies heal, and is a powerful non-addictive drug free form of pain management.

What Conditions Can Benefit from Spinal Decompression?

  • Bulging Discs
  • Herniated Discs
  • New and Old Disc Injuries
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Failed Back Surgery

Kinesio-Taping

Rehabilitative taping technique designed to facilitate the body's natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body's range of motion. 

Dr. Joelle Renaud is our certified KINESIO-TAPING® practitioner.

 

KINESIO-TAPING® is very beneficial for:

  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Low back pain
  • Disc herniations
  • Ankle sprains/strains
  • Bruising
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Tension headaches

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

This effective 15-minute therapy works by transferring electrical impulses through the skin to the underlying nerves and tissue. This causes a blood flow increase to the area of pain or spasm, resulting in reduced muscle inflammation and soreness. Ice is also applied along with EMS to help further decrease pain, spasms, and swelling. This allows your muscles to relax and is typically completed before your chiropractic adjustment.

Computerized Range of Motion Testing

Spinal injuries will often result in a reduction in the normal ranges of motion in the body, as well as affecting many muscle groups. With our state-of-art computerized range of motion evaluation system, we are able to give accurate and objective assessment of the regions of your body which need the greatest attention.
