Chiropractic is the largest natural health care profession in the world, which focuses on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Developed over 100 years ago, chiropractic care is a conservative, drug-free, surgery free, hands-on approach to musculoskeletal complaints. Common complaints treated with chiropractic care include, but are not limited to, back and neck pain, headaches, pain in the joints of the arms and legs, whiplash and sports-related injuries.
ACUPUNCTURE AND CHINESE MEDICINE
Chinese Medicine, which includes Acupuncture, is a medical modality grounded on the premise that disease—whether chronic or acute— results from imbalances in the body’s flow of energy (qi). These imbalances can be remedied by inserting hair-thin needles into well established “acupoints” along pathways called Meridians. Chinese medicine has been practiced and refined over the past 2500 years, making it the oldest continually practiced medicine in the world. Although, still relatively new to the West, it’s strengths are catching on as a powerful modality for addressing a vast array of health issues from pain, migraines, allergies, and chronic degenerative diseases. At Advanced Chiropractic we use a variety of Chinese Medical techniques to provide the most comprehensive care available. These modalities include Acupuncture, herbal medicine, cupping, gua sha, injection therapy, and electro-acupuncture. For a more details about acupuncture visit
Massage therapy normalizes the body’s soft tissue matrix by applying systematized movements and pressure to areas of tension or inury. Our massage therapists use a variety of methods, including applying fixed and moveable pressure to normalize muscle tension. Massage therapy breaks down muscle adhesions and improves circulation, which brings oxygen to the affected area and helps the body rid itself of waste and helps speed up the recovery from disease.
Functional nutrition is an emerging new field that looks at the way food affects your body and illness processes. Many don’t associate their poor health with what they put on their plate. But more and more, we are understanding that food either promotes health or it promotes disease. Functional Nutrition is a method or promoting foods that have known biologically-active compounds which when in defined quantitative and qualitative amounts provides a clinically proven and documented health benefit, and thus, an important source in the prevention, management and treatment of chronic diseases.
