Combining modern technology and ancient chiropractic techniques, the spine-soothers at West Hartford Chiropractic provide therapeutic treatment for acute and chronic conditions. The posture-propping procedure begins with a comprehensive chiropractic exam, in which backbone specialists assess overall spinal wellness. Next, West Hartford Chiropractic founder Dr. Moshe Laub will demand feats of flexibility, turning the spotlight on patients who can put hats on their heads with their feet, and tests reflexes by gently tapping knees to make sure they are not full of maple syrup. X-rays will occasionally be used to illuminate the dark corners of possible degeneration. Once any underlying conditions such as hula-hoop hip or texting-thumb syndrome are identified, the doctor will devise a treatment plan and corrective exercises. Targeted relief treatment may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and soft-tissue massage, as well as wellness techniques for discouraging discomfort at home.
Whether the malady is musculoskeletal or digestive, related to injury or stress, the multifaceted team at Whole Health Associates can personalize a holistic remedy to tackle it. The center’s naturopathic physicians complete a thorough consultation to investigate each patient's health history before diagnostic tests ferret out the root causes of symptoms, such as counterproductive habits or recent experiments with all-Twinkie diets. The staff often collaborates with chiropractors to create a well-rounded treatment plan, combining the latest advancements in modern medicine with alternative therapies such as massage, classical Chinese medicine, and homeopathy.
The center also specializes in therapeutic nutrition. Dr. Jennifer Stagg has extensive experience in treating metabolic syndrome and has served as the medical editor of the Journal of Herbs, Spices & Medicinal Plants. Dr. Jones-Born, on the other hand, offered nutritional advice with award-winning journalist Joan Lunden on an episode of the Better show and is a senior nutrition expert and consultant for the prominent eldercare website A Place for Mom.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Chase believes conditions such as back pain, migraines, and sciatica result from a condition called anterior head syndrome (AHS). The most visible sign of the syndrome is a head the droops forward in front of the shoulders due to factors such as gravity, the weight of the head, poor posture, or a really heavy hat. From this drooping comes a tense spine, which is an ideal condition from which pain can sprout. At Dr. Chase's clinic, Advanced Chiropractic, he and his staff treat AHS using structural-correlation techniques, which are chiropractic techniques that focus on correcting the spine and recentering the head between the shoulders.
The Beautiful Image system sculpts faces and bodies alike with the stimulating power of microcurrents. Its noninvasive silver metal wands emit specific frequencies that, when drawn across the skin, encourage the underlying tissue to return to a tauter, more-youthful state. These currents target crow's-feet and drooping jowls, as well as soft bellies and cellulite. Photos taken before and after treatments and news segments about the procedure back up the system’s efficacy.
