Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic tableA chiropractic adjustment is a safe form of manual therapy designed to treat various conditions such as headaches, neck pain, lower back pain, and sciatica. Restoring proper spinal alignment will reduce pain and stiffness by increasing range of motion and improving blood flow to help normalize nerve function and reduce inflammation. Proper alignment is critical for pain relief and optimal function. When applied effectively it is an integral part of a patients healing process.

Here at Christie Chiropractic, we are committed to getting you out of pain and restoring normal range of motion to your body through specific chiropractic adjustments. This will allow you to live in greater comfort and health – ultimately, encouraging organic healing and lasting wellness.

How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractic care can be adapted to the meet the needs of each individual patient. For this reason, most people can benefit from chiropractic care regardless of age or condition.

When it comes to pain, chiropractic care tends to offer immediate relief. As adjustments to the spine block certain pain receptors to the body, increased comfort is common after only one or two visits to the chiropractor. Chiropractic care is also used to renew mobility by rehydrating the spinal discs. This leads to less joint, vertebral, and muscle compensation as well as the slowing of the degeneration process.

Our Diverse Approach

Christie Chiropractic offers a multifaceted approach to chiropractic care. Well-trained in a variety of adjustment techniques, Dr. Christie is able to serve each patient on an individual basis. While she most commonly performs the Diversified Technique and Thompson Technique, both manual, hands-on approaches to care, she also commonly relies the following general adjustment methods:

  • Manual Manipulation – After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.
  • Graston Technique – Using these curved stainless steel instruments, we can successfully resolve adhesions and scar tissue, offering a pleasant sense of release.
  • Activator Method® – Activator Method® is gentle and low-force. This instrument-assisted technique has been known to relieve symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches.
  • Active Release Technique – Active Release Technique (ART) addresses soft-tissue-related complications. Soft tissues of the body include the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves.
  • Therapeutic Exercises and Rehabilitation – This is used to restore strength, endurance, and bulk to detrained muscle groups. It also helps to increase blood flow to injured tissues to quicken the onset of the healing process.
  • Erchonia Cold Laser – Erchonia Cold Laser uses lasers to provide relief from chronic pain by altering cellular function.
  • Electric Muscle Stimulation – This therapy is not only relaxing and enjoyable, it assists the body’s healing process by flushing inflammation-causing chemicals and other toxins from the muscles, thereby reducing inflammation, relaxing tight muscles and providing pain relief for both acute and chronic conditions.
  • Webster Technique – The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment used on pregnant women.
