Describe your services:
I offer truly comprehensive, individualized natural healthcare. Depending on your specific needs, I will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan utilizing one or a combination of the following treatments: chiropractic treatment (spinal and/or extremity adjustments/joint manipulation including manual or instrument adjusting), homeopathy, acupuncture, sports & spinal rehabilitation (physical therapy), massage, myofascial release techniques, nutritional counseling including vitamins & herbs, stress management, physiotherapy modalities including cold laser therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, & ultrasound.
How does your healing modality work?
All of the healing modalities I use involve improving the body’s ability to heal. When this occurs, optimal health is achieved, and most acute and chronic diseases are cured.
Chiropractic involves detection of joint restrictions or “subluxations”, and restoring normal motion & neurologic functioning through manipulation or “the adjustment”. This is a procedure in which a specific force is applied at a precise location to a restricted joint. The purpose is to restore normal joint motion, which leads to decreased tension & decreased spinal nerve irritation. Decreased nerve irritation leads to decreased pain & decreased muscle spasm. As the function of your joints improve, so does the function of your central nervous system. This often leads to improved health.
Homeopathy works based on the application of the law of similars, which states that the same substance that can cause disease in a healthy person can be used to treat someone suffering from that same or similar disease. The homeopathic remedy is a natural substance, which is highly diluted. When taken orally, it triggers a healing reaction of the body which ultimately leads to cure. Much more information about how homeopathy works is available on our website: www.progressivechiropractic.com
Acupuncture works by stimulating the release of endorphins to decrease pain, and speed healing. Traditional Chinese Medicine uses the theory of energy, or “qi”, pronounced “chee”, to explain how acupuncture works. Qi flows through the body via channels called meridians. If the qi flow is altered, the resulting deficiency, excess, or stagnation of qi causes bodily malfunction, illness, and inability to properly heal. Acupuncture, in which needles are inserted into specific points along these meridians, restores the proper qi flow, thereby returning the body to a state of improved health and decreased pain.
How do you see your services evolving over the next three years?
After fifteen years in practice, I still continue to master new techniques, and participate in continuing education programs, so that I can continue to remaining on the cutting edge of the art & science of practice. Continuing to search for techniques that will improve patient outcomes is my ultimate goal.
