Chiropractic
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts that is based upon the understanding that good health depends upon a normally functioning nervous system. The nervous system functions to control and coordinate every function of your body. Your spine is comprised of a series of moveable bones housing the spinal cord and spinal nerves, which exit the cord through openings between the bones (vertebra). The spinal nerves form a complicated network, which supplies and influences all the tissues and organ systems of your body. Misalignments or “subluxations” of vertebra that make up the spinal column can irritate these spinal nerves and cause dysfunction. Once these spinal misalignments are corrected by a chiropractor adjustment, the irritation is removed, and the body’s health and optimal function can then be restored, often relieving pain and dysfunction.

    This is application of modalities/procedures such as ice, heat, ultrasound, muscle stimulation (TENS) and traction. In our center we use safe, state of the art machines such as short wave diathermy (like ultrasound) but penetrates down to the bone, promoting healing, reducing scar tissue and swelling for arthritis and rehab. (After and joint surgery) We are one of a very select group of doctors in California that uses this very expansive procedure for post-surgical or chronic arthritis patients. Our Flexion-Distraction (similar to traction) table which you may have seen featured on TV, is excellent for gently relieving low back pain cause by disk injuries.

    Stretching is so important: As you may be aware, damaged tissue, left untreated, causes soft tissue to become fibrotic. Fibrotic tissue (scare tissue) causes loss of mobility. Thus, stretching will help you. Cardiovascular exercise: Reduces muscular fatigue and enhances stamina. Also, great way to loose those unwanted calories and pounds. Weight training: Injuries are minimized with proper, doctor supervised technique instruction that we provide.

    Orthotics
    The structure of your foot supports your entire weight. The slightest misalignment of muscle and bones can cause many problems such as: Bunions, Hammer Toe, Arch, Heel pain, Leg, Knee pain, Hip, Lower Back and Neck pain. We can provide a thorough examination and prescribe prescription orthotics that is custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. These devises are made from a precise impression taken of your foot vs. “a generic” one size fits all. Orthotics are very comfortable and will gradually restore the normal balance and alignment of your body and bring relief from your pain and fatigue.

    Radiographic Diagnostic Analysis (X-Rays)
    When warranted, X-Rays and the analysis are a very safe and cost effective screening tool. The results of your x-ray findings will be compared to your important health condition  . The doctor will review your X-rays with you and answer your questions.

    Acupuncture
    This ancient healing art from China is nearly 5000 years old and is actively utilized all over the world today. Acupuncture is a system of inserting fine needles into specified points along channels in the body known as meridians. The meridians are believed to be pathways by which chi, or vital life energy, circulates. Acupuncture modulates the flow of this vital energy, so as to prevent the onset of illness or to redress imbalances that have resulted in pain and disease.
