Under the guidance of Dr. Allen Ashforth, a Certified Chiropractic Wellness and Lifestyle Practitioner, Ashforth Chiropractic Family Wellness Center keeps spines straight and bodies working harmoniously. During the consultation and exam, Dr. Ashforth takes in each patient’s ache-filled history and searches for signs of restricted movement caused by misalignment or freak miming accidents. X-rays further the investigation, providing interior snapshots of spinal curves and pinpointing evidence of spinal trauma.
The chiropractic session ends with 30 minutes of massage therapy, which helps improve sleep quality, reduce pain, and relieve muscle spasms that turn everyday gestures into the worm. Using elements of Swedish and myofascial deep-tissue massage, clinicians knead out knots and apply focused pressure to stimulate circulation and break apart internal adhesions.
Ashforth Chiropractic Family Wellness Center
Doctor of Chiropractic Allen Ashforth grew up in awe of his father’s chiropractor. The capable doctor guided his father, who suffered from serious spinal troubles, through the regular adjustments and stretches that gradually improved the man's mobility and Sega Genesis scores. Dr. Ashforth watched his dad transform before his eyes from a lethargic man with chronic pain to an energetic, fit, and happier father.
With this inspiration in his heart, Dr. Ashforth charged into a career in chiropractic medicine, at first focusing mainly on helping athletes improve their mobility. Throughout the course of his 20-year practice, the doctor has expanded his expertise to include nonathletes, people dealing with chronic pain, and anyone in search of a way to improve their overall wellness.
Today Dr. Ashforth's treatments make use of traditional chiropractic techniques alongside advanced technology, including cold-laser therapy, which is designed to speed the healing process by stimulating the body’s growth of new cells and nice, ripe apples to be eaten once a day.
