Chiropractic care uses a holistic approach to address the underlying conditions that are responsible for symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, and chronic headaches. But it is SO MUCH more! Dr. Ben and Dr. Jessica use spinal manipulation, physiotherapy modalities, and diet/lifestyle modifications to focus on improving the overall health of your spine, nervous system, and musculoskeletal system.
Did you know the nervous system controls ALL body systems including:
From your heartbeat, breath, and digestion, your nervous system has a hand in it all. Healthy movement patterns equal a healthy nervous system. When your body isn’t moving properly due to dysfunction in the muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and fascia, your nervous system suffers. By addressing the dysfunction (often times presenting as pain), we can optimize your nervous system function and improve your overall health.
During your first visit to Radiant Life Chiropractic, Dr. Ben or Dr. Jessica will perform an examination to determine the exact cause of your symptoms. Once the cause is determined, treatment received will be tailored to your individual needs. Dr. Ben and Dr. Jessica are trained in various chiropractic manipulation techniques, including Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson, Activator, and Motion Palpation.
Kinesio Taping offers structural or muscle support; it can correct postural problems and increase blood flow and lymphatic drainage. When applied correctly, the latex-free, fiber tape lifts the skin to create a small space between the muscle and dermis layers. That space takes the pressure off swelling or injured muscles, allows smooth muscle movement and makes space for drainage and blood flow. The result is improved circulation and better healing.
Myofascial Decompression (Cupping)
Myofascial Decompression (MFD), otherwise known as Cupping, is a therapeutic soft tissue technique where plastic vacuum cups, using a pneumatic pump, are placed on the skin to release the underlying fascia and muscle tissue. Here are some of the conditions commonly treated with MFD:
• Break up adhesions/scar tissue already present
• Decrease myofascial dysfunction
• Increase blood flow to a slow healing muscle, tendon or ligament
• Reduce scar tissue formation
• Release trigger points and decrease tightness in a muscle and the surrounding fascia
