What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a method of natural healing to relieve pain associated with neuromuscular complaints, such as headaches, sciatica, joint pain, etc. With an emphasis on neurology, individuals are assessed for neurological tone, and prescribed reconditioning programs. You can expect a thorough, individualized review of neurology, biomechanics, and the structure and function of the spine, and its effects on your musculoskeletal and neurological systems. With proper functioning of these systems, we can help you to restore your health.
Disorders of the musculoskeletal system can result in pain, weakness, and limited range of motion. At Newton Health and Wellness, we understand the limitations that can be created by chronic pain, We use a variety of methods to reduce the symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders by restoring function and ease. Depending on your particular diagnosis, a customized program will be designed for you utilizing a combination of therapies that may include:
- Manual Manipulation (spinal and extra-spinal adjustments)
- Spinal Decompression
- Low Level Laser
- Electric Stimulation
- Ultra Sound
- Manual Soft Tissue Therapies (myofascial and massage)
- Physical Reconditioning and Rehabilitation
- Yoga & Pilates
- Balance Reconditioning
The complexity of the interrelatedness between the musculoskeletal and neurological systems cannot be underestimated in any health condition. The specific link for each patient is part of the process of discovery. “How does the upper thoracic spine influence the asthmatic patient so they don’t require their inhalants any more?” is an example of a chiropractor’s approach to treating a patient.
