Chiropractors are doctors that focus on pain within the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Our approach is to address the patient’s needs by making an appropriate diagnosis to best address one’s health. Chiropractic care is used to treat complaints including but not limited to basic back pain, neck pain, joint pain, muscle pain, headaches, as well as bodily stress. We excel in restoring patients to a state of well being who have had extensive trauma due to accidents and injuries(sports related and non-sports related), herniated discs, sprains and strains, arthritis, tendonitis, scoliosis, sciatica, carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, fractures, gait abnormalities, rotator cuff tear, cervical and lumbar radiculopathy, chondromalacia patella, spinal stenosis, meniscus & ligament injuries, and much more.
Injured tissue can undergo physical and chemical changes as a result of a single traumatic event such as improper lifting of a heavy object, a fall, a motor vehicle accident, or through repetitive stress, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for a long period of time. This injured tissue can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function effecting everyday life. Chiropractic manipulation and care restores mobility, relieves pain and muscle tightness, and allows the tissue to heal.Research shows, more people are turning to chiropractic care first all over the world. What’s more is that in addition to most health insurance policies, Medicare, Worker’s Compensation, No-Fault, and Personal Injury now recognize and include non-invasive chiropractic care coverage as a very cost effective and safe alternative health approach.
Should surgery become necessary, we have many trusting relationships with various types of physicians which we can refer you to for consultation, most that work in the same facility as our clinic so you won’t have to travel far. Should surgery be the best fit for your circumstance, we will be here to see you through proper post-operative recovery and rehabilitation to help accelerate the healing process.
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting clean fine filiform needles into precise points on the body to relieve pain for therapeutic purposes. There are several layers of pathways/channels that exist in the body. These pathways or channels are treated with needles for pain and for proper system function, which correlates with the body’s organs such as the lung, large intestine, stomach, spleen, heart, small intestine, bladder, kidney, pericardium, gall bladder, and liver.
If you are considering acupuncture, Dr. Alexander or Dr. Rodriguez will assess you, evaluate your symptoms, and make a diagnosis as to which organ system(s) are involved and perform acupuncture treatment accordingly.
