At our clinic we evaluate the entire physical structure, since injury, despite
the cause, can result in compensations involving many related regions of the
body. These compensations often result in undesirable dysfunctional joints that
alter the biomechanics of your movement and can, in many cases, ultimately lead
to pain and/or other negative symptoms.
For example, a mild ankle sprain can often lead to dysfunctional joints in the
foot. Once the natural shock absorption of the foot is altered in this way, the
body may attempt to compensate by involving the knee, the hip, the pelvis and
eventually the low back etc. Sometimes, only then does the pain become apparent
and appear to "come out of nowhere" weeks or months later. Especially in cases
of long-existing, chronic problems, you can receive treatment again and again
for your low back pain without lasting results; if the original problem - the
immobile foot - has not been addressed as well.
This basic biomechanical principle underpins our holistic approach to the 'Total
Body'. Whatever and wherever your problem is, we perform a complete evaluation
of the neuromusculoskeletal system, to discover all the factors involved with
each problem. Then, using various chiropractic manipulation and soft tissue
techniques we restore motion and function to those joints.
As part of the recovery process, exercises and/or specific stretches will be
prescribed to address areas of imbalance thus helping to stabilize the injured
area and prevent reoccurrence.
Often soft tissue imbalances, a poor diet and/or other health related issues
can act as complicating factors to a more complete recovery. In these cases a
referral will be made to a recommended professional to assist in the healing
Whether your condition is old, or new, whether it is the result of elite
athletics, work-related injury, poor posture, trauma or otherwise, we apply
the same principle: treat the Total Body to optimize and restore normal
