Full Spine adjustment
Gentle, effective full spine care that addresses and corrects motion limitations in the vertebral joints that make up the spine. I utilize a variety of different techniques and will personalize your treatment to your tastes to ensure a comfortable experience that gets results, whether you are dealing with back pain or you just want to stay well to perform and function optimally.
The top vertebra of the spine- C1 or the “atlas” is located where the brain stem becomes the spinal cord. This area is densely loaded with nerves and has a unique relationship with the skull and the rest of the spine. I practice a gentle and specific adjustment approach to this area that has proven results. Because of the location of the atlas this gentle adjustment can affect health and healing throughout your entire body.
A foot adjustment? Yes, every joint the body is made up of bones held together by ligaments and moved my muscles. Feet, ankles, wrists, elbows, hips and shoulders can all be adjusted. If you are a woman who wears heels, and you haven’t had a foot adjustment. you haven’t lived!
My focus with muscle work is more neurological- to re-establish the connection between the brain and the muscle. Muscles can have dysfunction due to inhibition, weakness and/or tightness. Identifying the cause and using state of art treatments provides effective and efficient treatment for muscle spasms, acute muscular pain as well as imbalances.
Scars and Adhesions:
For muscles with scars and adhesions from prior injuries or repetitive motion and chronic subluxation, addressing both the fascia and the muscle can improve your outcomes and speed healing and allow greater functional capacity. I use extremely effective techniques that are both diagnostic and therapeutic. It can make your next massage out of this world!
For stabilizing a joint, decreasing pain, correcting muscle function, and improving circulation of blood and lymph, kinesiotaping is an excellent adjunct for either healing or performance. You may have seen the Olympic swimmers with black tape on their shoulders. That is kinesiotape. It’s fast becoming a staple in most competitive sports. It’s a natural effective treatment that complements the chiropractic adjustment and muscle work beautifully.
