Chiropractic

ChiropracticA chiropractic adjustment is a quick, low force thrust applied to the nervous system to remove interference in the communication from the brain to muscles, the organs, the tissues, and the cells.
In short, it speeds up healing by improving the communication within the body. Adjusting the nervous system helps to free up energy to fully recover.

Applied Kinesiology

Applied KinesiologyApplied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing combined with other standard methods of diagnosis. AK, a non-invasive system of evaluating body function that is unique in the healing arts, has become a dynamic movement in health care.

The triad of health lists the three basic causes of health concerns. They are structural, chemical, and mental, with structure as the base of the triad. Literally, all health problems, whether functional or pathological, are involved with one part or all parts of the triad.

The physician who is aware of the triad of health, and evaluates every patient for all three sides, increases his ability to find the basic underlying cause of a patient┬┤s health problem.

Cold Laser

Cold LaserLow level lasers have been used world-wide for over 30 years. Over 3500 studies have shown that low level lasers:

  1. REDUCE PAIN by stimulating cells to produce their own endorphins, natural pain killers.
  2. PROMOTE FASTER HEALING by stimulating cells to increase the production of two major healing enzymes by as much as 75%.
  3. REDUCE INFLAMMATION by as much as 75%.
  4. INCREASE BONE REPAIR SPEED by stimulating fibroblastic and osteoblastic proliferation.
  5. RELAX MUSCLES and muscle spasms.
  6. DECREASE SWELLING by stimulating lymphatic drainage.
  7. ENHANCE THE IMMUNE┬áSYSTEM by increasing the number of “killer” cells of foreign material by 400-900%.
  8. RE-ENERGIZE CELL MEMBRANES to allow transport of essential nutrients across cell walls (nutrients will not cross an injured or sick cell wall, thus slowing healing) allowing a healthy new cell to grow.

Kinesiotaping

KinesiotapingDeveloped 35 years ago, by Dr. Kenzo Kase, Kinesiotaping has become the gold standard for therapeutic and rehabilitative taping. Most recently popularized by its wide use in the Olympics, Professional sports and high school sports.

Kinesiotape is latex free and has the same elasticity built in as your skin. It acts to normalize muscle tone, promote lymphatic and blood flow, and helps to reduce pain in an injured area.

While Kinesiotape provides the required support, it allows the muscles and joints to move through complete range of motion while the body heals itself. It is also water proof and can be worn for 2-5 days. For more information visit: www.kinesiotaping.com
