We care about your health. We are dedicated to provide the best care for your condition by thoroughly examining your areas of complaint. Then, we use the latest massage therapy techniques combined with physical therapy modalities, such as heat, ice, electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound, diathermy, muscle stretching and exercise therapy. Once your muscles are softened by gentle massage, we use various methods of realigning your spine or relocating joints of the extremities to their normal positions.
Chiropractic treatment is designed to restore normal alignment of joints and thus minimize pain and suffering. Gentle manipulative therapy or “adjustments” are often effective in rapidly returning the injured person to a productive status. Dr. Grant can also provide guidance on proper lifting procedures and educating our patients about the proper ergonomics’s of sitting and working at a computer work station. We find that education of the mechanic’s of the body will help to reduce the incidence of work related injuries.
We teach our patients how to perform special “blueprint” exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body that may cause pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. Targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Grant can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrical Muscle Stimulation is one of the most effective ways to help the body through the healing process. A very small electrical current is sent into the affected muscle, which helps to reduce swelling and reduce muscle spasms. The body’s natural response to the electrical current is to release endorphins, which help to alleviate pain and/or discomfort.
Ultrasound can be very effective in addressing injuries related to joints, muscle spasms, and soft tissue damage. Not to be confused with a diagnostic ultrasound, a chiropractic ultrasound creates small sound waves that vibrate and massage muscles and soft tissues. This process helps the body to heal and decreases scar tissue formation.
