Once Dr. Bremer has performed an examination and taken your patient history, imaging studies may be needed to confirm diagnosis. The doctor will then discuss the findings with you and decide with you what the best plan is for your individual case. A treatment plan will be created if chiropractic is determined to be appropriate for your care. Educational materials are available to help you understand the process.
Chiropractic is mainly spinal manipulation and adjustment to align the body properly as a way to alleviate pain. Patients mainly seek chiropractic treatment for back and neck pain. According to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), chiropractic treatment has also been found to improve migraine and tension headaches.
Zone therapy is a technique created by Peter Goldman. It is a consolidation of 6 systems that contribute to the balance of your whole body. When one of the zones is disrupted it will cause an imbalance within your whole body that could create pain, distress, health issues, and at times diseases.
Each of the systems, or zones, are regulated by a specific part of the brain. When focusing chiropractic adjustments to these specific zones can restore the communication your brain has with your spinal cord. When this communication is restored you can think about it as a computer system being reset to its original factory settings. This can be translated to your body’s system being restored back to when it was communicating properly before the disruption of one of your zone’s happened.
In studies, both chiropractic and physical therapy have proven to decrease back pain equally. Gravon’s Natural Chiropractic Center offers both types of care because some health problems require strengthening and stretching exercises that can only be provided in physical therapy. It may be used in conjunction with chiropractic and other therapies.
Chiropractic treats the whole patient and nutrition is huge part of that practice. The body must have proper nutrition, hydration, rest, exercise, and overall wellness to assist in the decrease of pain. Nutrition also plays an important part in helping patients with additional health issues such as diabetes, obesity, allergies, and coronary artery disease. Chiropractors are treating patients in a way that incorporates the body’s own healing power, so nutritional counseling is an important part of the treatment plan.
Massage at a chiropractic office is very different than one in a spa. Gravon’s Natural Chiropractic Center offers therapeutic massage. This type of massage is provided by a therapist with medical knowledge and is targeted towards relieving areas of pain.
Dr. Bremer may recommend an exercise program to enhance your chiropractic treatment. Check with your medical doctor if you have any health conditions prior to starting any exercise regimen. Multiple studies show that exercise helps low back pain in particular. Aerobic, as well as back and abdominal exercise, supplement your chiropractic care for great results.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method of curing various ailments and illnesses. Small needles are inserted into specific areas of the body to encourage the nervous system to release chemicals for pain relief. In conjunction with chiropractic, acupuncture can provide additional alleviation of pain.
