Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Exercises Equals a Balanced Body

Chiropractic Solutions

Our chiropractors 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 to promote total body wellness.

This is not a one size fits all program. We will consider your health history, perform examinations, and use orthopedic tests to diagnose conditions to arrive at a treatment plan customized for your needs.

Posture Assessment

After a postural assessment has been administered, a personalized rehab program will be designed to improve your posture and muscular imbalances. These corrective exercises will consist of stretches, strengthening exercises, and balance skills. With these key rehab exercises, we will help correct imbalances and strengthen muscles that support the spine to prevent injury and ensure optimal health and performance.

Corrective Exercises

We will provide a personalized rehab program to improve your posture and muscular imbalances after administering the postural assessment. These corrective exercises will include stretches, strengthening exercises, and balance skills. We aim to prevent injury and provide you with optimal health and performance through our rehab exercises.

Soft Tissue Mobilization

Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization is a technique that uses tools to break down fascial and scar tissue and stimulate its healing. Adhesions within the soft tissue may have developed as a result of surgery, immobilization, repeated strain, or other mechanisms. Through our services, these are broken down which allows for full functional restoration to occur.
We can use this technique for various conditions. These include carpal tunnel, tennis/golfer’s elbow, tendonitis, and “muscle knots.”

Nutritional Counseling and Weight Loss

Good nutrition is the foundation to living a healthy lifestyle. Combined with exercise, your diet can help you achieve a healthy weight, reduce the risk of chronic diseases (such as 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. The small changes you make to your diet can go a long way!

Chiropractic Care and Auto Accidents

Finding the right chiropractor is extremely important when it comes to auto accidents. At Stamos Chiropractic Inc., we treat everything from small fender benders to serious whiplash injuries.

We will educate you on the recovery side of your accident and make the process as easy as possible for you. Our staff will help you fill out all of the appropriate paperwork, and our providers will make sure your documentation is thorough.

When necessary, we will take you through the stages of care and implement gentle chiropractic care, stretches, corrective exercises, and pain relief modalities. We also have a digital x-ray, which is important to rule out fractures or ligamentous damage.

Our team works closely with other health care professionals, such as medical doctors, pain management doctors, and orthopedic surgeons. This is to make sure that your care is being appropriately managed. Each case is different, and we take the appropriate measures to ensure our patients get the best care.

If you have recently been injured in an auto accident and have questions, call us as soon as possible. We offer free consultations and can help answer any questions you may have.

Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

An Effective Chiropractic Technique

Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment. This is used to improve neuromusculoskeletal (nerves, muscles, and bones) function within the pelvis.

During pregnancy, there is increased stress on the joints, muscles, and ligaments that help stabilize the uterus. Creating balance within the pelvis using this technique may reduce the cause of difficult labor for the mother (i.e.,dystocia).

ligaments

“Rotational misalignment of the sacrum may result in a tightening and torsion of the uterosacral ligament contributing to undue tension on the uterus. This may adversely affect labor progression, optimal fetal positioning, and natural, non-invasive birth outcome.” — Jeanne Ohm, DC

Potential Benefits of Our Services During Pregnancy

  • Maintain a healthier pregnancy.
  • Decrease neck pain, back pain, joint pain, or sciatica.
  • Reduce the time of labor and delivery.
  • Decrease labor pain.
  • Prevent potential cesarean delivery.

Factors That Influence Back Pain During Pregnancy

Hormonal Production

There is an increase in hormonal production during pregnancy to allow the pelvis to spread as the baby grows. This causes the joints to be less stable, which then causes pain.

Weight Gain

During pregnancy, women gain approximately 25-35 pounds with the majority of extra weight distributed around the abdomen.

Postural Changes

Postural strain increases since the body compensate for changes in the pregnant woman's center of gravity. This will put increased stress on the pelvic muscles, joints, and ligaments.

Family Care

Dr. Alison has additional post-doctoral training and experience in both pregnancy and pediatrics. Gentle and low force techniques are a safe and effective way of treating both expecting mothers and children.
