Acupuncture is an old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine dating back over 4,000 years. It still remains effective today as a way to strengthen the body rather than merely treating symptoms. It is primarily used to relieve pain as well as treat other conditions. More than 3 million Americans and 200,000 children in the U.S. have had acupuncture to help relieve a symptom or condition. Because of its low side effects, it has been the treatment of choice for many doctors across the country. It is even more popular in other countries.

Chiropractic Adjustments (including Specialty Upper Cervical Adjustments)
Upper cervical chiropractic treatment works on the first two bones in the neck called the upper cervical spine, overall health of your body. Signals go back and forth between the brain and spinal to every cell, organ and system in the body. communication between the brain and body is sent to the nervous system by the brain stem. Any irritation to the central nervous system can create a miscommunication between the brain and body, causing the body to become unhealthy. The top two vertebrae, the Atlas and Axis, are prone to injury or misalignment because they are the most mobile segments of the spine. If left untreated, an upper cervical misalignment can lead to irreversible spinal degeneration and chronic ill health. Misalignment of the upper cervical can be caused by physical or emotional stress car accidents, falls, sports injuries, bad posture, job injuries, or even birth trauma. Unfortunately, patients hear about upper cervical care only after years of unsuccessful and ineffective traditional treatments. in time, without proper treatment and care, ignoring the care of the upper cervical spine can escalate to severe health problems that may require surgical intervention. Upper cervical care focuses primarily on treating the cause of pain whereas traditional medicine, medication and surgery provide alleviation of the symptoms.

The pain may be due to that area compensating and being over-worked from another area not pulling its weight. Our rehabilitation program includes strength, flexibility and agility training as well as training focused on coordination of body parts and motion to prepare the individual to return to full participation.
Pre-treatment and post-treatment to show progress
One of the most important elements of chiropractic care is diagnostics. Chiropractic radiology is a tool utilized in care as a diagnostic practice to rule out pathology (such as possible tumor or fracture) and/or an additional aid to determine where to adjust the spine. Chiropractors rely on a variety of diagnostic techniques in order to fully understand what is occurring in the patient’s musculoskeletal system, and how a given treatment intervention could bring about positive results in each patient.
