In a world where prescription medications and surgery are too often the first options offered to patients, many are instead seeking “alternative methods” shown to work effectively with minimal to no side effects. S.P.A.R.C. Chiropractic uses Chiropractic Manipulation Therapy (CMT), or “the adjustment,” to help assist with our other natural treatment protocols to restore, preserve and optimize patient health. CMT is a natural, safe and cost effective treatment which we fully stand behind.
Here at S.P.A.R.C. Chiropractic, we take research seriously. We specialize in Evidence-based Practice (EBP), which is at the forefront of the medical research paradigm today. EBP research has quantitatively proven that chiropractic manipulation can:
FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SCREEN & FUNCTIONAL REHAB EXERCISES
Functional movements are defined as everyday movements involved in a person’s daily activities. Leading chiropractic physicians are no longer simply spine or back
doctors. They have expanded their expertise to using scientifically proven methods to assess the whole kinetic chain instead of one individual region in order to uncover the root cause of the patient’s pain. This assessment is performed through functional movement screens, a protocol used to target specific faulty movement patterns. Left uncorrected, these faulty movement patterns can reduce the body’s full capability to thrive in activities of daily living and lead to injury or chronic pain. Based on our assessment, we will develop a unique, functional exercise program to address each patient’s needs.
Massage therapy is one of the adjunct treatments we provide to help patients attain wellness and improve their health. Research shows that massage benefits include, but are not limited to: healing injuries, recovery from exercise, and reducing stress, pain, muscle tension, anxiety and headaches.
Traditionally an eastern medicine treatment, acupuncture is utilized by many western practitioners today. Now backed by numerous amounts of research for it’s effectiveness, acupuncture is used to help heal all sorts of disease and injury, including strains and sprains, back pain, addiction, anxiety, and upper respiratory infections, to name a few. It is said that when one’s chi, or “life force,” is blocked, the result is the manifestation of disease or injury. Acupuncture is used to tap into channels or meridians throughout the body by stimulating specific points that help the natural flow of the chi. Here at S.P.A.R.C. Chiropractic we use a blend of eastern and western teachings to help complement our patients’ treatment protocol.
INTEGRATIVE NUTRITION THERAPY
Nutrition is the foundation of optimal healthy living. With so many burdens affecting healthy, clean eating these days, choosing the right foods can be confusing. Here at S.P.A.R.C we believe in educating patients on diet and the healing properties of food so they can make informed decisions for their themselves and their families. Through the use of elimination diets and blood work, we uncover vitamin and mineral deficiencies, food sensitivities and allergies, as well as help with weight loss and detox programs.
Cold Laser (AKA low level laser therapy) is a non-invasive method to help reduce acute and chronic pain. The therapy is FDA cleared and offers patients an alternative to drugs and surgery. Laser therapy has been shown to speed recovery for many types of injuries including, but not limited to post-surgical, sports, and motor vehicle accidents. Laser therapy is also effective at reducing pain and inflammation related to injury or chronic disease such as arthritis. Laser treatments last a few minutes depending on the condition being treated. Patients generally see results after 2 to 5 treatments. Your doctor will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition.
