Chiropractic adjustments and manipulations
Unlike conventional medicine which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, chiropractic care emphasizes improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place. All people would rather be healthy and avoid illness, if they could and this is one of the main reasons for the big surge in the popularity of our wellness center.
People are recognizing the benefit of seeking an alternative to traditional medicine; as a patient at CoreFit Chiropractic, we will personally tailor a wellness program specifically targeted to your wellness needs using the least invasive yet highly-effective techniques and services.
Adjustments to the spine correct improper position and restore proper alignment, joint function and balance. Improper alignment of the joints (referred to as subluxations), creates imbalances and dysfunction occurs which leads to pain, disability and can lead to degeneration and arthritis. When Dr. Walter performs gentle manipulations of the spine, he fixes subluxations thus restoring proper nerve system functions and allowing the body to properly function and heal. Subluxations can be caused by acute trauma or injury, biomechanical imbalances, postural distortions or other stresses.
Manual Therapies are hands-on treatment approaches such as trigger point therapy, massage, manual traction, gliding, and mobilization aimed at modulating pain, increasing range of motion, reducing soft tissue inflammation, inducing relaxation, facilitating proper movement and improving individual function.
Common benefits of routine chiropractic care:
- Improved nerve communication
- Improved joint motion, balance and coordination
- Increased body function and performance
- Improved posture
- Alleviation from pain & recovery from injury
Computerized Functional Testing
This testing incorporates a dual inclinometer system to measure range of motion, a manual muscle strength tester, and an algometer to measure pain tolerance thresholds. These objective measurement tools can be essential in identifying and diagnosing mechanical dysfunctions, imbalances, and instabilities. This valuable information is used to establish a baseline of treatment aimed at restoring your proper function and your ability to perform your daily activities pain free. The testing is easy and painless and provides valuable information based on your own personal needs.
