Chiropractic means treatment by hand. Before you receive treatment for your ailment we take a very thorough history to identify all of the components of your health that either caused or aggravate your problem further. We also want to identify any issues that may prevent you from responding to our care, such as stress, poor diet and insomnia to name a few.
Once your chiropractors have returned you to as optimum a state of health as possible, it is advisable that you visit us on a regular basis to be determined over time to prevent regression. In others where they have achieved full recovery preventive care is also advised as the activities of daily living are the source of many of our health issues. The role of your chiropractor is to not only directly treat, but to coach and remind you to maintain healthy habits to prevent regression over a long time period.
More Than Chiropractic
Doctors Bair-Patel, Heubner and Foy all are licensed chiropractors and are registered to perform acupuncture. There are many chiropractic techniques and our chiropractors use Applied Kinesiology, which uses very accurate muscle testing to more fully assist in diagnosing the many components that can create a larger symptom pattern. Our senior clinician, Dr. Bair-Patel, is well on his way to gain certification in Functional Medicine which uses a scientifically founded approach to lifestyle medicine involving the manipulation of diet and the application of nutrients and herbs to reduce symptoms and improve health.
Finally, all of our chiropractors are proficient in prescribing ergonomic changes as well as isolation exercises to improve musculoskeletal symptoms.
The chiropractic team is supported by a broad team of therapists that can dispense under the guidance of your chiropractor, therapies such as laser, diet and supplement, orthotics and finally Medex and personal training.
