DR. ABS’ FAVORITE SOLUTIONS
What is a Chiropractor?
A chiropractor is a healthcare professional that focuses on healing the body naturally. Chiropractors use a variety of manual adjustments to restore spinal and extremity joint function and keep the nervous system functioning at its best. They help patients maintain optimal health and well-being all while avoiding unnecessary drugs or surgery.
What is an adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is a very safe, specific, controlled force applied to a joint to reduce misalignments in the spine and/or extremity with the goal of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability and improving function.
What are the benefits of an adjustment?
Adjustments reduce pain, increase movement and improve performance after traumas such as car accidents, slip and falls and sports injuries as well as release stored up tension in the body due to everyday stress or overexertion.
When should I visit a Chiropractor?
Think of your body as a high performance car. Just like your car needs a tune up to continue to drive at peak performance, your body needs a “tune up” in the form of a chiropractic adjustment to maintain optimal health and function.
Class IV Laser Therapy
What is Class IV Laser Therapy?
Class IV Laser Therapy is one of my favorite natural health solutions. This specific type of laser therapy applies a beam of light to the area of pain or injury and accelerates your body’s own natural healing process through photo-bio-stimulation.
What is photobiomodulation?
What this means is that light waves emitted by the laser stimulate the chemically damaged cells to produce beneficial enzymes, increase mitochondrial activity, increase lymphatic drainage via macrophage stimulation, and increased vasodilation. In simpler terms, the laser decreases inflammation and pain, while speeding up recovery and reducing scar tissue production.
What conditions does Class IV Laser treat?
Laser therapy Helps reduce pain and inflammation in knees, ankles, feet, hips, shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers. It’s also great for muscle strains, ligament sprains, tendinitis, neck pain, back pain, headaches, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Myofascical Trigger Points, Tennis Elbow and golfers elbow, Repetitive Stress Injuries, Plantar Fasciitis, Degenerative Joint Conditions, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Most Sports Injuries, Shin Splints, and more!
