Chiropractic care is both an art and a science. It’s a natural, drug-free approach to health and wellness.
By focusing on the spine and the central nervous system, chiropractic care helps restore our bodies to optimal function. It seeks to re-establish normal spinal mobility, which can reduce or even eliminate pain.
We focus on subluxation, or spinal misalignment. When you’re out of alignment, you might experience symptoms like:
Numbness in the arms and legs
By reducing the misalignment, we can help you find:
Increased range of motion
We offer physical rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions through a variety of conservative therapeutic treatments that relieve musculoskeletal pain and promote healing for all of our patients. Our office provides specific physical rehabilitation and therapeutic services that are tailored to meet each patient's condition and injury. The benefits of physical rehabilitation and therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aiding in recovery and range of motion. Ultrasound, therapeutic exercises, mechanical traction, manual traction, active and passive exercises, isometric strengthening, core strengthening, and various types of therapeutic massage are just some of the therapies we provide to get each patient feeling better in the shortest time possible.
Strengthening and Balancing
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and strengthen the tissues, promoting a vibrant and healthy lifestyle.
I specialize in therapeutic massage. This clinical massage works to loosen muscles and includes strengthening and stretching techniques. I use manual manipulation to focus on 1 or more of these goals:
Improve flexibility and muscle tone
Improve athletic performance
Encourage long-term biochemical correction
Massage Therapy for Injury Recovery
Recovery after an injury or surgery can be tiring and frustrating. However, therapeutic massage can facilitate healing and play a significant role in pain management.
Through massage, I manipulate:
This work relaxes muscles and improves circulation.
Therapeutic massage can reduce inflammation and scarring. It can also prevent loss of function and help your spine and joints bounce back better than before.
Sports Training Massage
Massage is a valuable part of any training regimen — both before and after an event. Sports massage:
Increases athletic performance
Improves flexibility and range of motion
Reduces post-workout recovery time
Before an event, sports massage can prepare the muscles for strenuous use. It also stimulates the nervous system, increasing circulation. Massage also helps prevent injury by supporting proper biomechanics.
After an event, sports massage:
Removes the toxic build-up of lactic acids
Relaxes tightened muscles
Massage promotes the addition of oxygen and nutrients into vital areas, accelerating recovery time. The addition of massage to your sports regimen is a proactive method to increase your overall athletic performance.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a non-surgical traction based treatment for herniated or bulging discs in the neck and low back.
Effective for Many Conditions
Anyone who has back, neck, arm or leg pain caused by degenerated or damaged discs may be helped by spinal decompression. The conditions include herniated or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, facet syndrome, spondylosis and even failed spinal surgery.
Why Decompression is so Effective
Proper patient assessment, correct bodily positioning, and intermittent traction and relaxation of the spine may reduce disc pressure allowing nutrients to accelerate disc healing. Focal stretching of spinal muscles reduces chronic tension, allowing for normalized mobility of the spinal joints and proper disc hydration and nutrition.
Athletic Performance Enhancement
The role of chiropractic in sports is three-fold: it decreases recovery time from injury, it enhances athletic performance, and it helps prevent future injuries.
Your feet are the foundation of your body. So, proper balance and support are key to overall body stability and function.
Most people with foot imbalances have little or no pain in their feet. Instead, the pain is transferred to other areas of the body. Weakness or unstable positioning in either foot can contribute to pain in the knees, back, and neck.
Orthotics are shoe inserts that balance your feet. By stabilizing your stance, orthotics help:
Enhance the body’s performance and efficiency
Contribute to whole-body wellness
We use an imprint of your foot to create the most customized orthotic for you. Your unique, customized orhotic will provide your foot and body with the highest quality of support possible.
Our soil has been depleted of rich minerals and our farmlands and oceans have been filled with harmful chemicals and pollutants. Today, more than ever, it is vital to our overall health and wellness to supplement our diets with vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants.
Nutri-West products are made to the industry’s most exacting standards of quality, purity and potency. Each of the more than 1,200 raw materials used in producing Nutri-West’s tablets, capsules, tinctures and topical gels undergoes regular, random laboratory analysis to assure that it meets the company’s exacting standards. Many of Nutri-West’s products are proprietary formulations developed for the company by distinguished medical and nutritional researchers.
More than 20 recognized authorities in the field of nutrition work on new formulations for specific nutritional situations on behalf of the company. Nutri-West products are manufactured and packaged in the company’s own ultra-modern production facilities in Douglas, Wyoming.
Both product formulations and production methods have been carefully designed with the final customer—your patient—in mind. For example, extensive efforts are made to insure that Nutri-West products are the most hypo-allergenic on the market. Formulations carefully avoid common allergy-reactive substances like soy, wheat, yeast and sugar (unless specifically necessary to accomplish a nutritional goal) while production methods have been developed which avoid adding unwanted byproducts such as sodium, preservatives and other chemicals.
Nutri-West’s concern with quality and wholesomeness extends to the environment, as well. Substantive measures are taken to make sure that our operations keep the air and water of Wyoming pure and fresh. Packaging is kept to an absolute minimum and is made of recyclable materials.
