Here at Bates Chiropractic, we have many different services to fit your specific needs. Whether you are experiencing back pain, feeling out of alignment, or just want to get healthier, we can help.
To help all of our patients, we offer the following services:
Corrective exercises can help make any pain that you are experiencing go away and stay away. These exercises will strengthen and correct the irregularities of your body which may be causing your pain. Most of these exercises are able to be performed in the comfort of your own home. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles or connective tissues that are out of place can also cause pain.
There are also other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches. These pains are caused by muscles and tissues that are not properly aligned. Overtime, this can cause injury. Feeling aligned will help your body achieve balance and true health. It is important to do each rehabilitation exercise regularly. Strengthening weak areas and regaining lost strength will have you well on your way to feeling better.
These exercises typically combine stretching, aerobic conditioning, and strengthening exercises. These plans are all customized for your mobility level and pain level. Being able to implement and execute the exercises properly is very important to your entire healing process.
A chiropractic adjustment can make you feel so much better. Your body does not want to be out of alignment, and that’s exactly what an adjustment can help address. It is also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation. The adjustment refers to the manipulation of the vertebrae that have abnormal movements and are not functioning properly. A chiropractic adjustment will assist in fixing these issues.
The goal of chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, increase the range of motion, reduce nerve irritability, and improve mobility. Our compassionate and qualified chiropractor will work with you to relieve this pain and get you back to being pain free every single day.
A chiropractic adjustment involves high velocity thrusts applied to the vertebra, relieving sensation, discomfort, and spasms in the surrounding muscles. It also releases joint cavitation, which is caused by the release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide.
Although many people visit their chiropractor and have an adjustment when something feels out of alignment, a regular visit will help you avoid any pain in the future and will keep your body feeling great all day long.
If you are having one of those days when you are not in the best mood, an adjustment may actually help. Your body will feel much better, which will naturally improve your mood.
It may seem obvious, but many people don’t realize that their health is a product of their overall lifestyle. The choices we make in life have an effect on our health — an effect that could be positive or negative.
There are many negative lifestyles choices that we make. Some of these are small, some of them are more significant. Some of them are even things we do on a daily basis for years. But even if we know something that we do is having a negative effect on us, it can be difficult to break free from that pattern of behavior.
That is why it can be extremely beneficial to talk about lifestyle choices, and get advice on ways to eliminate negative elements from your life. We are happy to provide lifestyle advice to anyone who is wishing to improve their health.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about your own lifestyle choices, please contact us today. We’d be happy to speak with you and address any thoughts you might have.
Part of healing the entire body is monitoring what goes into it. The body uses food as fuel, and what fuel we choose has a significant effect on how our body functions.
That is why nutritional counseling is one of the most important services we can provide for people. By teaching people about what types of foods allow their bodies to function optimally, we empower people to make positive choices that benefit their health.
While nutrition is not an overly complicated concept, it can be difficult to implement the concepts into your daily life and turn that into good habits. That is why nutritional counseling can help people change the way they eat and ultimately the way they feel.
Massage therapy and chiropractic care complement each other. Both therapies work together, creating a synergistic effect that results in a much faster recovery time. The goal of massage therapy is to better one’s well-being. It does not just cover up the illness but rather ensures that the pain will not come back at a later date.
Massage therapy can be used as both preventive and restorative therapy. When used in combination, it will assist you in reaching your optimal health so that you can live the life you want without any limitations. Our friendly and helpful staff will work with you through any pain.
Massage therapy is great for recovering from physical injuries due to car accidents, sports injuries, or a variety of other causes. The immune system is stimulated when it is massaged. By doing massage, your body’s natural energy is able to heal itself. There will be increased blood flow to the area that is being massaged which also helps healing.
The improved circulation will help decrease the pain and stimulate the nerves. Massage therapy is the solution to your pain. There are many different types of massage therapy depending on your specific needs. The swedish massage is for relaxing the body. It will also help rejuvenate tissues and muscles. A deep tissue massage will go even deeper into the body to repair the damage.
These are just some of the services that we provide here at Bates Chiropractor. We love assisting others and helping them feel better again. No matter what your pain or injury is, we will work with you to ensure that you are pain free and feeling great.
