The spinal cord tunnels through the spine's stacked bony segments, known as vertebrae. Even though the spine exists to protect the spinal cord, vertebrae often slide out of place and irritate delicate nerve material. This sliding can cause pain and other neurological symptoms, but can also occur without symptoms while still impacting health. Nerve irritation can occur at any age, but when it occurs in children, it can negatively affect their physical development.
Doctor of Chiropractic John P. Rempel believes it's important to ensure the spinal health of children, and at HealthZone Chiropractic, he specializes in administering gentle adjustments for kids, as well as treating all family members.
If an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, Europeans probably don’t understand the math; but the practitioners at Dimick Family Chiropractic are based in the metric-system-declining U.S., so they get it. With that knowledge, they use spinal adjustments and massage therapy to prevent as well as to treat ailments of the body. Under the direction of Doctor of Chiropractic Jeffrey M. Dimick, practitioners seek out the root cause of maladies and address them through holistic means. In addition to adjustments and massage, they use kinesio taping and spinal decompression to put the body back into balance, unlike a child’s checkbook.
At Meridian Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Jeff Yoder and his team quickly and efficiently treat patients with traditional chiropractic techniques and advanced technology. The doctor uses the ProAdjuster, a computerized device that exerts a small mechanical force on the body and measures the response through sensors and software. Dr. Yoder also employs physiotherapies such as muscle stimulation and traction. Nationally certified massage therapist and registered medical assistant Amy Warren complements treatments with a variety of modalities, including prenatal massage, sports massage, and rotator-cuff release, which allows break dancers to more fluidly execute an arm wave.
In the most general terms, Doctor of Chiropractic Ron Woods addresses spinal problems for people of all ages. However, his job has many focused offshoots. One is the treatment of symptoms stemming from auto accidents; another is work- and sports-related injuries. He even oversees targeted patient-care programs, including one for fibromyalgia, which incorporates therapies from hands-on adjustments to electrical muscle stimulation. And, when a patient's problems warrant even more detailed attention, he reaches out to neighboring physicians for specialty work, thereby forming a reliable network of caregivers.
The experienced practitioners at Indy Downtown Community Acupuncture meld traditional Eastern techniques with those of other wellness-oriented schools, administering acupuncture to clients in a soothing communal treatment room. At their first visit, patients chart their history and desired results and then step into the shared area's scape of cozy reclining chairs free of bitey geckos. Friends and family can undergo treatments together, offering moral support and tender glances throughout the group acupuncture session. During the treatment, an acupuncturist attends to each physique by targeting the client's chosen zones with hair-thin, sterile needles, which can stimulate the affected body part to rebalance corporal energies and resurrect moments from a past life as a spiny puffer fish. Acupuncture can imbue strained bodies with a variety of benefits including improved sleeping habits, enhanced joint mobility, and reduced stress.
Before beginning treatments, the Acupuncture of Indiana staff strives to understand each patient as a whole so that they can not only relieve symptoms, but also achieve wellness. Like an instruction manual with directions in English and Chinese, each of their acupuncture specialists has a background in Western and Eastern medicine so that they can provide multiple levels of insight. A medicinal treatment in practice for thousands of years, the tiny, pain-evicting needles used in acupuncture are delicately inserted into the skin at points along meridians or pathways, where aches and pains typically wait to jump out and scare neurological hikers.
