Acupuncture is part of what is known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has been practiced for thousands of years. Acupuncturists want to understand not only the symptoms, but also what is causing them. The main tool in acupuncture is the needle, but Acupuncturists can also use acupressure, massage, cupping, moxa and more to active the acupuncture points that are on the Meridians. These Meridians are circuits linked to different organs which run all over our body. Meridians and points have specific actions, therefore depending on the symptoms and the goal of the treatment, the acupuncturist will stimulate the appropriate points and the meridians. Acupuncture can assist in alleviating a large variety of problems.
Chiropractic is a non-invasive and drug-free approach to health care that focuses on optimizing your body’s own ability to function at its best. A chiropractor’s job is to remove any interference to the nervous system through specific chiropractic adjustments. The nervous system is the master system of the body, so removing subluxations (misalignments of the spine) allows this communication between the brain and body to be uninterrupted. Chiropractic focuses on addressing the cause of your symptoms, not just camouflaging them.
Chiropractic provides long-term relief for people with conditions such as: back and neck pain, headaches, hip and knee pain, sciatica, scoliosis, shoulder pain, numbness and/or tingling in the hands/fingers or feet/toes, disc herniations, poor posture, pregnancy-related pain, as well as a variety of other conditions in babies and adults alike.
All new patients are requested to fill out a complete history, after which we will discuss health concerns and goals during a one-on-one consultation. Next, a thorough spinal evaluation will be performed including posture checks, range of motion studies, two computerized spinal nerve system scans, and palpatory evaluation before adjusting the spine and/or extremities. Digital foot and gait scans for custom orthotics are available upon request.
