CHIROPRACTOR NIAGARA FALLS
You may think our Chiropractor Niagara Falls doctors are all about adjusting your spine or fixing your hip issue or treating your pain in the neck but they think bigger... they think broader... they think the whole picture. As you start talking about that specific source of concern our docs are rapidly creating a road map in their minds based on what you are describing to them.
MAPPING OUT THE ANATOMICAL HIGHWAY
Our docs don't just treat the site of pain because they think big when it comes to your concern. There are countless structures at the source of the concern but also up and down stream from it.
Here's a few examples of what we're talking about:
- The Spinal Column
- Muscle tissue
- Nerve fibers
- Blood vessels
Each of these are all intertwined in the beautiful and beloved thing our docs like to call ANATOMY. These structures all run together up and down your body, from tip to toe, each like their own highway.
Smooth and uninterrupted function among each of these structures is called homeostasis (aka Balance, Harmony, Good Health, Happy Times). When one, or a few, of these highways get jammed up... it's as painful as traffic going into Toronto on a Monday morning.
Our docs map out in their minds what segments, structures, sites and accessory routes are jammed up and leading to your source of concern. They think BIG for you. They use a hands-on approach to not just treating one tissue, but rather treat the whole picture of dysfunction to restore flow and alleviate the concern.
HANDS ON HEALTH CARE
Our doctors are what we like to call "Body Mechanics." Have you ever seen a Gray's Anatomy Text book? Google it to see what we're referring to. Our chiropractors have this extensive knowledge of your anatomy in their brain!!
They have an astonishingly detailed amount of working knowledge when it comes to what's under your skin. They have trained their hands to pick up the slightest changes in anatomical alignment, normal movement or architecture. They have also been trained in how to use their hands to remove any interference within different structures to help you regain homeostasis and get back to doing what you love.
Chiropractic Offerings Include...
Our docs practice Neuroanatomical Acupuncture. What this means is their application of acupuncture is intended to RESET an imbalanced nervous system. Your nervous system is a massive communication network. An obstruction at any point in this system equals static, which in the human experience equals pain and poor mobility. The insertion of an acupuncture needle at a troubled area restores communication flow in your nervous system.
Our Chiropractor Niagara Falls docs focus on Manual Therapy to get you moving again and reduce symptoms of pain, discomfort and poor mobility. Through techniques known as myofasical release, fascial distortion principles and spinal manipulations/mobilizations, they can help you...
- Stand straighter
- Stand taller
- Feel less pain
- Improve your arm reach
- Resolve tight or sore hips
- Walk with more ease
- Take the "creak" out of your knees
- Keep up to your kids... or your grandkids
- Dance like you're 20 again
- Run as fast and as gracefully as a gazelle
- Pump more iron
- Ride your Harley or your Road Bike or your Cruising Bike
- And any other quality of life thing you are looking for
LITECURE LASER THERAPY
We have a class IV Laser System on site at the clinic that our docs integrate with their treatment. Our patients love this warm, soothing and incredibly effective therapy. Laser therapy helps to bring down the big baddie in so many people's musculoskeletal concerns: Inflammation. And while this treatment option takes out inflammation, it is soothing and gentle. Everybody Loves Laser. It's great for seasoned chiropractic patients and also those who are looking for a more subtle approach to their care.
Shockwave therapy is to our WIN modalities what Juggernaut is to X-men. Not into comics? Ok... let us explain...
Shockwave uses a strong impulse at a site of concern to breakdown walls of scar tissue and improve blood flow. A short, frequent and high intensity burst of energy (in the form of a shockwave) is delivered to the soft tissue area that is injured, scarred, contains adhesions, is painful and/or is inflamed.
The sensation that patients experience at the site of treatment is a rapid, high frequency, vibration. This therapy...
- Increases blood flow to the injured site (which is essential to speed healing)
- Changes the biochemicals in the injured site to prevent pain and inflammation
- Break apart scar tissue
- Reduce muscle spasm
- Eliminate trigger points
- Reset nerve fibers, which changes pain signals to the brain = Prevent the communication of Pain
What to Expect during a Shockwave Treatment
One Shockwave treatment lasts approximately five minutes. Many people find combining a chiropractic visit, where they receive manual therapy, acupuncture, adjustment, etc., with a Shockwave treatment to help speed the recovery process.
The best outcomes in healing have been observed when people receive three to five Shockwave treatments, each one week apart.
Shockwave causes most people to feel a mild to moderate discomfort, but it is well tolerated. Our WIN Doctor is always conscientious to check in, make sure you are ok and adjust the intensity based on your comfort level. It is normal to experience a mild discomfort after treatment, as Shockwave kicks up a lot of biochemical/neurological/anatomical activity. The net result over time is improvement at the site.
What Shockwave Can Treat
It is one of our more assertive treatment options and is ideal for persistent or stubborn conditions. Our docs have seen Shockwave work well for:
