Chiropractic Care

In life, joints often get “stuck” (joint fixation) and muscle tension develops. Chiropractic care greatly assists with joint fixation so that the body can move with ease and without pain. Through a thorough examination of your spinal and extremity joints, we can locate the problem areas. It’s then possible for us to develop a sound and comprehensive care plan that will help you to feel your best. Our plans are usually between two weeks to a couple of months in duration.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

  • Better mobility and balance to help prevent injury
  • Improvement in muscle tension, stiffness and joint pain
  • Increased ability to engage in physical activity and sports
  • Strengthened brain-body connections resulting in better focus and concentration

Conditions That Respond Well to Chiropractic Care

Although it’s commonly known that chiropractic is a tremendous asset in eliminating pain, here are other issues that we focus on:

  • Better sleep patterns
  • Chronic Pain
  • Neck and Back Pain
  • Muscle Pain/Tension
  • Gait issues (attention on foot, knee and hip dynamics)
  • Headaches
  • Post Injury Recovery
  • Injury Prevention
  • Improved Coordination and Balance
  • Postural problems

Our Popular Techniques

All our research-based techniques are gentle. Our approach is always low-force or no-force, resulting in a happy and relaxed patient. One of our specialties is Activator Methods®, which is an instrument-assisted adjustment that requires no twisting or popping of the spine. This technique is precise, accurate and effective.

We also feature Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT), where the body does all the work in its realignment. Comfortable blocks are used to facilitate rapid healing. Another popular approach is the Thompson Drop Table. This technique provides a great adjustment with very little force.

Active Care

The care at Brain & Body Health is dynamic. We don’t provide a passive adjustment and then shoo you out the door. Our patients first do customized exercises in our rehabilitation area. The exercises are followed by a gentle and precise adjustment and any necessary therapies, such as ice, heat, muscle stimulation, massage or cold laser. The visit ends with another session of rehabilitative exercises.

This system of active care reinforces the new patterns of realignment that are being introduced into the spine. Patients heal more quickly; their health and function are optimized.

Looking at the Whole Person

When a patient comes in for treatment, Dr. Liz looks at their entire lifestyle so she can assess all the factors that may be contributing to slowing down the healing process. Those factors include nutrition. Chronic inflammation may be the biggest factor that slows down healing, but so does cellular health and oxygen delivery. When Dr. Wells sees a nutrition defecit that can hinder the patients ability to reach their health goals she will reccomend supplements. Patients can see her supplement recommendations for their specific goals, thru our patient portal, or they may go to Fullscript and browse their full catalog.
