Like periodic eye examinations and regular visits to the dentist, chiropractic care respects the time it takes for the body to heal, and helps the healing to happen without dysfunction. Think of it as orthodontics for the spine. Timely chiropractic care restores proper alignment so your body can heal properly, and allows maximum healthy functioning of your spine and related muscles and nerves to be restored.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin, disposable, sterile needles (short, microfibers of surgical steel) just below the top surface of the patient’s skin at strategic points on the body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. At Back in Action Wellness Center acupuncture is used in an integrated approach to healing to improve recovery rates and relieve pain by unblocking the energy fields in the body.
Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of healing those tissues. Massage therapists use manual techniques that include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and/or causing movement of the body. While massage therapy is applied primarily with the hands, sometimes the forearms or elbows are used. These techniques affect the muscular, skeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, nervous, and other systems of the body.
The Chiropractor or Massage Therapist is able to recommend customized workout regimens that integrate Back in Action Wellness Center’s on-site weight machine, stationary bicycle, elliptical machine and stretching area, as well as rehabilitative exercises to be done in our center or at home, as appropriate.
