Chiropractors are concerned in the correction of movement dysfunction, also known as "subluxations" which some refer to as the body’s misalignments. Chiropractors seek to ensure that the spine and the rest of the body are working harmoniously. To do so, patients may be provided a plan that will require light stretching, some exercise, chiropractic care, and a healthy diet.
Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints. After a history, consultation and examination, a chiropractor can prescribe specific exercises that are safe and effective for your condition.
Custom foot orthotics are designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look similar to insoles, but are biomedical appliances that are custom made to correct specific foot imbalance. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot while standing and walking. Understanding that everyone is different, custom foot orthotics are made just for you.
Acupuncture is an old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine dating back over 4,000 years. It still remains effective today as a way to strengthen the body rather than merely treating symptoms. It is primarily used to relieve pain as well as treat other conditions. Millions of people have sought acupuncture to help relieve a symptom or condition. Because of its low side effects, it has been the treatment of choice for many doctors around the world.
