Chiropractic

Chiropractic table

Chiropractic is the science and art of disorders of the neuromuscular skeletal structures (particularly the spinal column and the nervous system) and the innate recuperative powers of the body. Chiropractors identify structural and functional changes within the musculoskeletal system, affecting neurological, lymphatic and vascular function.

The chiropractor's goal is to remove spinal nerve interference and normalize function. Chiropractors can help prevent future problems through education, exercise and lifestyle modifications.

Electrical Acupuncture

The proper term for this title should be “Acupoint Physical Medicine." Acupuncture is specifically defined by individual State Boards as; “the insertion of needles beneath the skin surface." Even though the “practice of acupuncture” through needle insertion requires a state license. All health professionals certified in physical therapy may utilize the “principles of acupuncture” while utilizing quick, effective, Acupoint stimulation through accepted non-penetrating procedures.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

EFT is based on a new discovery that has provided thousands with relief from pain, diseases and emotional issues. Simply stated, it is an emotional version of acupuncture except needles aren't necessary. Instead, stimulation of the well established energy meridian points on your body is done by tapping with the fingertips. It launches off the EFT Discovery Statement which says, "The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system."

Extremity Adjustments

Extremity means arms and legs, hands or feet, etc. Chiropractors adjust or manipulate the hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, feet, ankles, knees and jaw joints. Chiropractors have published studies of treament for acute inversion ankle sprain, knee problems, elbow pain (lateral epicondylitis), plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, Achilles tendonitis, hip osteoarthritis, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff muscle injury, carpal tunnel syndrome, ribs and TMJ (jaw joint).

Hair Analysis/Lab Testing

Hair Analysis

A hair analysis is a test that measures the mineral content of your hair. The mineral content of your hair reflects the mineral content of your body's tissue. The hair can be up to 300 times more sensitive than the blood in measuring the mineral content. Heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, arsenic, lead, cadmium and more can be detected, as well.

Homeopathic Remedies

What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathic medicine is a clinical-pharmaceutical system which uses microdoses of substances derived from palnts, minerals or animals for the purposes of stimulating the natural healing response. [Bellavite & Signorini, 1995]

This system claims to cure diseases using remedies which are prepared according to particular procedures of dilution and dynamization (percussion which adds kinetic energy according to the principles of physics).

These remedies are chosen according to a complex methodology based on the law of similars.

Kinesiology Taping

Kinesiology tape is a thin, stretch, elastic cotton and/or nylon strip with an acrylic adhesive. Therapeutic kinesiology tape can benefit a wide variety of musculoskeletal and sports injuries.

Kinesiology tape is used for treating athletic injuries and a variety of physical disorders. For the first decade after its introduction in the late 1970’s, practitioners in Japan were the main users of the therapeutic kinesiology tape. By 1988 the tape had been adopted by Japanese Olympic and professional athletes before spreading across the world.

MediCupping

What is MediCupping?

MediCupping is a modern adaptation of the ancient Chinese technique, “Acupuncture cupping”. Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which cups made from bamboo, earthware, or glass are made devoid of oxygen by very briefly inserting a small flame into them, and quickly placed on the skin to create suction. This suction is believed to mobilize blood flow to promote healing of a broad range of medical ailments.

Naturopathic Medicine

A naturopathic physician is a doctor trained like any other doctor of general family practice. Naturopathic physicians diagnose patiets' problems similar to other physicians but they don't use pharmaceutical medicines. They use natural botanicals, herbs, homeopathy and nutritional supplements. Naturopathic physicians are trained to not just treat symptoms, but to treat the cause of the "dis-ease."

Neurotransmitters

The human nervous system is responsible for coordinating thousands of processes, from muscle contractions to crying. The center of the nervous system is the brain, which contains over 100 billion specialized cells called neurons. The nervous system also contains very important chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. The brain uses neurotransmitters to tell your heart to beat, your lungs to breathe and your somach to digest. Neurotransmitters are also necessary for thought processes, emotions and other essential body functions including sleep, energy, panic and fear.

TMJ Splints and Orthotics

TMJ or TMD

TMJ, also known as TMD (Temporo Mandibular Disorder) stands for termporo mandibular joint, which is the joint connecting the lower jaw (mandible) to the skull (termporal bone). The lower jaw and skull are connected by a number of muscles and ligaments which work in harmony with each other if the lower jaw is in the correct alignment with the skull. The head of the lower jaw bone is called the glenoid fossa. There is a cushion or shock absorber between tese two bones called an articular disc.
