To realign the spine and put your bones back in the order prescribed by campfire sing alongs, opt for Swanson's skeleton-shuffling, posture-straightening chiropractic treatment. At the beginning of your session, your chiropractor will perform a full chiropractic exam, checking your muscular scaffolding for any out-of-place pieces and giving your nerve endings a look-see to make sure none of them are being pinched by a crab. Should your interior décor require a closer look, x-rays will be taken as well. When your points of pressure are fully identified, your chiropractor will use hands, or gorilla gloves if they're feeling mischievous, to apply gentle, precise pressure that puts bones back in their rightful places—relieving pressure on any nerves affected by the misalignment and targeting specific conditions, including sciatica, lower back pain, tennis elbow, Wii tennis thumb, and fat Elvis pelvis.
Maintaining a healthy body depends on addressing issues from the inside-out and, at Lakeway Health & Wellness Chiropractic, the staff focuses their attention on using natural treatment modalities to correct problems with the nervous system. The husband-wife team of Drs. Dustin and Amy Ferrell treats patients using proven chiropractic techniques that don't simply relieve painful symptoms, but also address the underlying structural concerns that prevent the body's natural healing processes. When the spinal column is perfectly aligned and the nerves are able to function unencumbered, clients should begin to notice an improvement in their overall wellbeing. Aside from performing chiropractic adjustments, the doctors can also help their patients through nutritional and exercise counseling as well as sessions that employ the Graston Technique?a treatment modality that uses stainless steel instruments to locate signs of tissue damage and then jump-start the natural healing of the tendons, ligaments, and various soft tissues in the area.
At Bloom Chiropractic & Wellness, they understand that each patient has unique needs as it relates to their musculoskeletal health. That's why Dr. Ashley Sawinski begins by gaining a thorough and detailed understanding of each patients? condition, symptoms, and aggravating factors. She then performs a set of comprehensive orthopedic, neurological, and motion palpation tests, with x-rays taken if necessary. By pinpointing the source of pain and discomfort, she can confidently create a personalized chiropractic treatment plan for maximum effectiveness, whether the cause is a car accident, work injury, or poor postural habits.
The majority of Total Wellness Austin's treatments are customized to meet the needs of each individual, and they all help to strengthen the relationship between mind and body. Owner Lori Massad-Koska sets the tone by developing individualized yoga programs for her clients that assist in lowering stress and improving flexibility, and a series of online instruction videos allows her students to practice in the comfort of their home or their car on the commute to work. Massad-Koska's classes also incorporate furry best friends in Doga sessions, which allow pooches and their pet humans to stretch together.
In addition to sun salutations, Total Wellness Austin aids its clients in the quest for better health with acupuncture, massage, and chiropractic care and prompt extended sweating with boot camps led by certified personal trainers. Their focus on wellness extends from clients to the community in which they live: mental-health workshops raise donations for the family room at the Travis County courthouse, which helps comfort children in trouble, and a band of skilled instructors teach free yoga sessions for vets, their spouses, and bands of migrating penguins.
Doctor of Chiropractic Amy Hess's mission is to educate her patients about vertebral subluxation, which causes spinal bones to become misaligned, as well as about proper nutrition. But before she can do any of that, she needs to educate herself about the patient and attempt to determine the causes of their vertebral subluxations, so she asks them detailed questions about the sports they've been involved in, the number of car accidents they've been in, and if they've ever been a professional limbo dancer. Hess then takes the time to explain her services, such as thermography scans—which use digital thermal imaging to suss out pain—and ashiatsu massages—which blend deep-tissue, Swedish, myofascial, and trigger-point therapies and require Hess to walk over the patient's back. She also teaches her patients healthy eating habits during nutrition consultations and posts a healthy recipe every week on her Facebook page.
Throughout her more than 25 years in practice, Doctor of Chiropractic Cynthia Schade has always aimed to treat more than the back. She thinks of each patient as a whole person, and that conscientious care shows in her methods. Two of her own staff members became health care practitioners as a result of her treatments: Kelly Grosch found relief from tennis elbow thanks to Dr. Schade's knowledge of the soft-tissue-mobilization method known as the Graston technique, and went on to become a chiropractor and master the technique herself.
Today, Dr. Schade and her staff at Active Life Wellness and Healthcare, including fellow chiropractor Cynthia Lara, ease clients’ aches and promote their wellness in a welcoming environment. Their careful adjustments and soothing massages can treat a variety of conditions, including injuries resulting from car accidents and neck pain resulting from chain mail ties.
