The Movement Chiropractic and Wellness offers a wide variety of services to get you out of pain, your body balanced, and back to health. I will briefly cover some of our services below.
I’ll start with wellness care because ultimately this is where I want each and every one of my patients to end up. “Healthy”, “optimally functioning”, “pain free”, “disease free”, “feeling great”, and “symptom free” are terms I like to use with patients who are in our wellness care program. Most people do not start here when they enter my office, but this is where they eventually end up if they choose health as a lifestyle.
You may have heard the statement… “Once you start going to a chiropractor you always have to go.” This statement is usually meant in a negative connotation. Let me help you understand what this really means by asking a couple questions.
- “Once you start going to the dentist do you always have to go?”
- “Once you start eating healthy do you always have to eat healthy?”
- “Once you start brushing your teeth do you always have to brush your teeth?”
Do you see that you don’t have to keep doing anything you don’t want to which makes you feel good, promotes health and healing, and prevents disease and symptoms? Pretty cool huh? You get to choose. But remember, everything you do or don’t do has consequences.
So back to answering our question…No you do not have to receive chiropractic treatment for the rest of your life, but you also won’t benefit from an optimally functioning nervous system. A nervous system that without interference can stop spinal degeneration, prevent pain and muscle spasms, and keep your immune system strong to fight disease and sickness.
Unfortunately, adjustments don’t last forever. So we have to figure out when your spine goes out of alignment and get you adjusted as soon as possible. It only takes two weeks for your spine to start degenerating when you are out of alignment (subluxated).
The complete Wellness Care Program in our office encompasses chiropractic treatment, exercise rehabilitation, massage, and whole food nutrition. You get to choose how much you want to participate.
This one is easy to understand. Depending on your case, we choose the best chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic modalities, exercises and stretching programs, and nutrition to get you feeling “good” as soon as possible. Some of the treatments we may use include:
- Chiropractic Adjustments
- Electrical Muscle Stimulation (high/low volt)
- Therapeutic Rehabilitative Exercises
- Cervical Tractioning
- Strapping (Rock Tape)
- Trigger Point Therapy
- Light Therapy
- Nutrition (detoxification, gut health, thyroid health, liver health, weight loss, brain health, immune function, inflammation protocols, etc…)
Only about 7% of chiropractors offer this. Understanding that the neck (cervical spine) naturally has an optimal curve (“banana curve”) that promotes health and prevents pathological tethering and spinal degeneration is why we feel it is so important to correct when necessary. After taking a thorough consultation, orthopedic and neurological tests, and x-rays, we determine if you are a candidate for our corrective care program. The program not only gets you out of pain, but more importantly it addresses degeneration and cervical curve restoration.
We see a 95% success rate for those who qualify and go through this program. People who have struggled for years with headaches, fatigue, sickness, pain, and muscle tension have benefitted from this program.
“Auto Accident Injuries”, “Worker’s Compensation Injuries”, “Slip and Fall Injuries”, and “Sports Injuries” are categories for types of injuries we treat. Since 1998 I have successfully treated thousands of injured people who could not find help elsewhere. I also work closely with neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, athletic trainers, massage therapists, physical therapists, and physiatrists (pain specialists) as part of a team to get you the best care for healing and back to pre-injury status.
Understanding the phases of healing for injured soft tissue is an important part of giving the appropriate treatment at the appropriate time. Combining a musculo-skeletal treatment approach with an understanding of the nervous system (along with nutrition) provides the quickest and longest lasting recoveries from soft tissue injury.
There is so much to discuss here. Because the CDC and FDA do not protect us from companies that are poisoning us we have to educate ourselves on healthy food choices. When you take into consideration the accumulation of toxins (mercury, fluoride, aluminum, pesticides, herbicides, dyes, etc…), GMO’s, MSG, and hormones in our food with depleted nutrients, it’s no wonder we are getting sick.
We are passionate about the importance of whole food nutrition that is chemical free, GMO free, MSG free, hormone free, pesticide free, and herbicide free. We understand that most people need to detox before they can benefit from whole food nutrition. Our goal is to educate and guide our patients to healthy eating.
Our office addresses many conditions that are a result of poor diet choices causing a breakdown in health.
- Hormone issues
- Gut issues
- Liver issues
- Brain fog
- High blood pressure
- Muscle spasms
- Difficulty sleeping
- Weight loss
Obesity is a huge problem in this country and it leads to many diseases, poor quality of life, and even death. We take weight loss seriously. There are many reasons a person may be overweight.
Our fat cells protect us from the toxins that enter our bodies. Typically, the more toxic you are the more fat you will have. A fat cell can increase 60x its normal size just to protect you from toxins. Detoxing your body is a good start to losing weight.
Other people are overweight because of a low functioning thyroid. This shuts your metabolism down leading to weight gain. We address all components of hypothyroidism from reviving your Thyroid Stimulating Hormone to making the thyroid receptors work better.
Cortisol is also a cause of weight gain. When you are stressed your adrenals release cortisol causing your thyroid to shut down. Most people’s adrenals are overworked and stop functioning correctly. We are able to test for adrenal fatigue and offer nutritional support for healing.
Psychological reasons cause people to over eat. We work with food portions, food combining, food elimination, and food timing.
Eating the wrong foods will cause weight gain. High fructose corn syrup and processed foods keep the body from eliminating harmful calories. Understanding what foods are bad to eat and how these foods cause weight gain will help to change bad eating habits. Did you know that bread is addictive? It has the same receptors in the brain as opioids.
Once we have done a full evaluation (metabolic assessment) we can put together the best weight loss program that is specific for you. All of our weight loss programs are safe and doctor supervised.
We have several weight loss programs that guarantee a minimum of 10lbs of loss in just a couple weeks. Some of our patients have lost over 40lbs in only three weeks.
We have a state of the art digital x-ray. I feel it is important to fully evaluate our patients. Using x-ray to assess the spine and surrounding structures gives us a more comprehensive evaluation and treatment approach. It also protects us and our patients from liability like pathology that could be missed without having an x-ray. There are some chiropractors who do not x-ray, but It is never good to guess and I would never want to guess about a patient’s health.
Since 1998 I have provided school physicals to thousands of students. Same day visits, no waiting time, and only $50 an exam, it is a great convenience to many students and their parents. Best of all, you don’t have to wear a silly gown.
We do offer some massage in the clinic, but most of it is referred to Body Mechanix Massage a few blocks away. We know the benefits of massage and that is why we combine many of our wellness programs to offer discounted chiropractic and massage. With our “Miracles of Massage” program you can receive a full 60 minute massage for only $35. Now that’s a deal!
