The Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractors are licensed healthcare professionals who primarily concentrate on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of spinal disorders and other mechanical conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care places a strong emphasis on the body’s ability to heal itself without employing surgery, drugs, or other medical measures.
Patients often experience relief from a wide range of painful and dangerous symptoms by seeking quality chiropractic care. At Wellspot Chiropractic, we address countless health and wellness issues using a variety of approaches. Read more about some of our specific services below.
Pregnancy & Pediatric Care
When provided by a chiropractor with proper specialized training, chiropractic care has proven to be safe and effective for pregnant women as well as babies and young children. During pregnancy, chiropractic care has proven extremely helpful in the management of back, hip, and joint pain that goes hand in hand with carrying the extra weight of a baby. Pediatric chiropractic care includes treating young people for conditions that include headaches, sports injuries, poor immune response, allergies, asthma, ear pain, colic, sleep disturbances, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
We offer an initial assessment of your history and background. Dietary guidance and meal planning assistance. Referrals to other services (such as therapy) to support your dietary goals.
The “classic” chiropractic treatment, manual adjustments are done by hand to perform a broad spectrum of coordinated contact movements. Manual adjustments may be used to address various patient health and wellness concerns. Applying direct pressure at specific points, we can dramatically improve the function of muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and other soft bodily tissues.
The Activator Method
This therapeutic approach requires the use of a specific hand-held tool called the “activator.” A spring-loaded, mechanical instrument, the activator aids in chiropractic adjustment by delivering a rapid, low-force impulse with extreme precision. An activator adjustment can accomplish many of the same benefits as a manual adjustment by improving the body’s alignment and helping with overall body function.
Pain, soreness, or injury in muscles, tendons, or ligaments can be very distracting and limit your daily life or fitness routine. KT Tape is designed to provide drug-free pain relief and flexible support to help keep you and your muscles active and recovering. If an active lifestyle is your priority, and pain, post-workout muscle soreness, or injury are constantly keeping you from your daily movement or goals, KT Tape is for you.
There are many healthcare applications for ultrasound equipment, and chiropractic care is another! We employ therapeutic ultrasound therapy to relax muscles, alleviate inflammation, boost blood flow, speed the healing of injured tissue, and break down internal scar tissue that otherwise might limit mobility. Chiropractic ultrasound works by producing sound waves to produce vibrations that penetrate deep into the body to generate therapeutic heat.
Intersegmental traction therapy is a procedure used by chiropractors to treat back pain, disc problems, and reduce muscle spasms. This type of therapy helps the healing process in your body and does not involve drugs or surgery.
Otherwise known as e-stim, electro-muscle stimulation uses clinical electrical equipment that produces pulses that replicate the signals emanated by the neurons of the human nervous system. By directing mild electrical currents to specific nerves, e-stim produces muscle contractions that improve blood flow and promote tissue repair. Electrical stimulation is a powerful therapy that has also been used to block pain receptors and even restore the natural motor function of stroke victims with nervous system paralysis.
Whether part of a prescribed physical rehabilitation program or for general preventative or restorative purposes, chiropractic exercises can be powerful complements to regular chiropractic office visits. The pelvic tilt and the supine bridge are just a couple of exercises that virtually anyone can do at home to improve their overall health and wellness. When you come to us for treatment, corrective exercises may be one way that your treatment continues outside of our office!
