Chiropractic Care

I provide spine and extremity adjustments using the Cox table, a drop table, an arthrostim instrument and a tule board.  These newer correction methods are safe, comfortable and effective. As a Chiropractic Physician licensed in both Florida and California I have years of training and experience with musculoskeletal issues and internal medicine problems.


Corrective Exercises

I teach my patients exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem while showing them how to avoid microtear stretches and DOMS.  (delayed onset of muscle soreness)  A strong emphasis is also placed on proprioception work which keeps the musculoskeletal system balanced and youthful.  All exercises, (or as I call them therapeutics), can be performed in the comfort of your own home with minimal equipment.  In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can also be out of place or strained by improper alignment, diet and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.


Lifestyle Advice

I often find it helpful to “coach” patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge.  Patients with scoliosis, ligament laxity and a history of a sprain/stain often need to modify certain activities and exercises to stay in optimal shape and avoid future injury.  My goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. I recognize that each patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness as a collaborate effort between doctor and patient.


Acupuncture

Top of the line Japanese Serrin needles are used for optimal patient comfort and safety. Both 5 element and 8 principle technique is utilized.  Gua Sha, cupping and TDP lamps are also used.  Often for faster and more complete results chiropractic is included in the treatment mix.

Acupuncture is an excellent modality for symptoms of cold/sinus infections, nerve pain from shingles, post-operative recovery, auto-immune disorders, hormonal issues including infertility, menstrual and post menstrual and overcoming dysfunctional muscle patterns.


Cold Laser

By injecting billions of photons of visible and invisible laser light deep into tissue structures, swelling can be reduced and the healing of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints can be increased.


LED (light emitting diode) red and blue

LED red light rejuvenates skin by stimulating fibroblasts to produce a little collagen and decrease the enzymes that break down collagen. Depending on the condition, red (633nm) or blue (415nm) light can be used to treat:

  • Arthritis
  • Muscle Spasm
  • Decrease skeletal muscle recovery time
  • Muscle and Joint Pain
  • Muscle Tissue Tension
  • Joint and Muscle Stiffness
  • Diminished Local Circulation
  • Inflammatory Acne Vulgaris
  • Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles
  • Can shrink the size of fat cells.

Safe, researched exercise recommendations

I often find it helpful to “coach” patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Patients with scoliosis, ligament laxity and a history of a sprain/stain often need to modify certain activities and exercises to stay in optimal shape and avoid future injury.

In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can also be out of place or strained by improper alignment, diet and overuse. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.

Nutritional Counseling

I provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance your return to optimal health. Proper nutrients can help minimize formation of scar tissue and can also help reduce the risk of degeneration.


Cupping

Cupping helps to heal overworked muscles which is why it is commonly used by athletes.

Cupping uses various type of suction cups to create a negative pressure which pulls up on the skin and fascia and allows the muscles underneath to release. Cupping supports venous return and improved circulation as well as stimulating and supporting lymphatic flow.

Cupping is a unique type of therapy in so far as instead of pushing down on the bone, skin and muscle which is experienced in most bodywork therapies as well as in foam rolling, cupping pulls up. This pulling up helps the fascia to release from the muscles underneath so that they are able to relax.


Gua Sha

Commonly used for sore and achy muscles, back pain, strains, sprains, muscle spasms and even the common cold, Gua Sha can result in improved flexibility, performance, range of motion and faster recovery time from a hard work-out.

Gua Sha is an instrument-assisted, myofascial release therapy, for soft tissue mobilization. By mildly frictioning the skin, this therapy works to smooth out tight knotted muscles, move toxins like lactic acid and uric acid out of the body and break up scar tissue.
