The most significant aspect of any chiropractic treatment is chiropractic manipulation of the spine or joints of the extremities. Commonly referred to as an “adjustment”, chiropractic manipulation is performed to improve lost range of motion, increase segmental joint mobility, stimulate joint position sensors and promote normal function of the central nervous system. The adjustment is vital in restoring normal joint function and range of motion and improving overall joint health. Chiropractic manipulation is a safe, gentle and effective method for treating neck, mid back and lower back pain in addition to disorders of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and ankle. By restoring normal function to the musculoskeletal system, especially the joints of the spine, manipulation allows the nervous system to operate without interference and regulate the various systems of the body and promote optimal health.
Chiropractic Adjustments have been shown to improve more than just joint pain. We see great success with relief from headaches, colic, and ear infection issues in children, menstrual cramping, and more. Contact us today for a free consultation. If we are not able to help with your condition then we will point you in the direction and refer you to the appropriate healthcare provider.
In conjunction with chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitation is an essential component of any treatment plan. Studies have shown that without rehabilitation, recovery from an acute injury or chronic condition takes longer and the potential for exacerbation or re-injury remains high. Physical therapy can help improve motion, increase muscle strength, and enhance balance and coordination. For each patient, a rehabilitation program will be custom-designed to expedite the recovery process and prevent re-injury or exacerbation. Physical therapy programs that we offer include pre- and post-natal conditioning, lumbopelvic stabilization programs, cervical stabilization programs, sports injury rehabilitation, balance and stability training, flexibility training and postural re-education and training. For many disc injuries, we utilize the McKenzie technique as a treatment method with great success.
Soft Tissue Manipulation
Dr. Weeks utilizes both Instrument Assisted techniques as well as manual Myofascial Release techniques to assist in the treatment and healing process. These techniques are performed to decrease muscle spasm, reduce tension and increase blood flow to the area to remove toxins and supply nutrients. Additionally, soft tissue techniques serve to improve flexibility, decrease pain, increase range of motion and facilitate tissue healing.
Dr Weeks has a big passion for all things athletic. This is not limited to the traditionally thought of sports like running, football, baseball, basketball, etc but branches out to anything you want to improve upon. Biking, weightlifting, dancing… even hunting! These things ALL require a body to function at its best.
