Chiropractors are physicians that specialize in neuromusculoskeletal (nerves, muscles and bones) disorders. Nerves control the function of vital organs, skin sensation, muscle function and much more. Chiropractic Care focuses on the relationship of the spine and nervous system in order to promote total body wellness. At Stamos Chiropractic Inc., we consider your health history, perform examinations and use orthopedic tests to diagnose conditions to arrive at a specific treatment plan customized for your individual needs. This is not a one size fits all program.
Posture assessment will help assess muscular imbalances, postural compensations and dysfunctional movement patterns. These issues are the leading causes of pain, discomfort and often lead to degenerative changes throughout the body. These screenings will determine which Corrective Exercises are necessary to accomplish our goal of “Your Body In Balance”.
After a postural assessment has been administered, a personalized rehab program will be tailor made to improve your individual posture and muscular imbalances. These corrective exercises will consist of stretches, strengthening exercises and balance skills. Combining these key rehab exercises will help correct imbalances and strengthen muscles that support the spine which is key for injury prevention, optimal health, and performance.
Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization is a technique using tools to break down fascial and scar tissue, and stimulate tissue healing. Adhesions within the soft tissue may have developed as a result of surgery, immobilization, repeated strain or other mechanisms, are broken down allowing full functional restoration to occur. Conditions this technique is useful for include carpal tunnel, tennis/golfers elbow, tendonitis, “muscle knots” etc.
Good nutrition is the foundation to living a healthy lifestyle. Combined with exercise, your diet can help you achieve a healthy weight, reduce risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease, hypertension and diabetes) and promote overall health. Implementing a whole food nutritional program will give your body what it needs to stay healthy, active and strong. Making small changes to your diet can go a long way!
