Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Martin Bates has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.

Corrective Exercises

At Bates Chiropractic Inc, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.

Lifestyle Advice

Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.

Nutritional Counseling

What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Fremont chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural  treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!

Rotator Cuff Syndrome, Tendonitis, Frozen Shoulder

What begins with a painful, stiff, inflammed shoulder that's too painful to move, can become more serious if left untreated. Shoulder problems begin with accidents, sports injuries, prolonged bad posture at the computer, or chronic inflammation. If one doesn't maintain movement, the shoulder naturally becomes more stiff and eventually becomes stuck due to scarring, trigger points, or adhesive capsulitis, what is commonly known as 'Frozen Shoulder'. At this point, you might even be out of most of your pain, but unable to move your shoulder normally. This condition can last months to couple of years. Medication, physical therapy, even injections don't always restore normal movement. Our office treats frozen shoulder and rotator cuff syndromes with NAT (Niel-Asher Technique) which utilizes a specific sequence of therapy designed to first, reduce inflammation pain, and second, restore normal shoulder movement. There is no stretching and torquing the shoulder as in physical therapy, which often times exacerbates the problem. This technique takes into consideration the way your brain reacts to shoulder pain and actually changes the way you use your upper body. So no matter what stage your in: freezing  = painful, frozen = stuck, or thawing = getting some movement back... we can be of great help in this area.

Spinal & Postural Screenings

There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Martin Bates can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Fremont community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 510-739-6393 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
