Never before in the history of the chiropractic profession has the correction process been as effective and painless as it is today. Many of the newest, well-researched techniques generate progress more quickly and effectively than ever before. Our doctors are highly trained and certified in all the methods used in patient care and require the same level of experience and commitment from all members of our wellness team. You can trust in the care we deliver to facilitate your health and well-being.
Massage can do more than make you relax, it can actually help flush your body of toxins, improve circulation and aid the process of healing. This approach can help relieve pain for many patients and may be prescribed by one of our doctors to facilitate the healing of muscles and tissues that have been compromised. Gentle massage can even boost your immune system in a feel good, relaxing way.
Nothing complements your spinal correction like strengthening weakened muscles and tissues with corrective movement and stretches. When your spine injured or out of alignment, your body may be using muscles and tissues incorrectly which causes weakening and sometimes pain. By working with our targeted movement programs, you will quickly build strength and flexibility while alleviating low back pain, headaches and lack of mobility. Chiropractic Life Center’s doctors will prescribe a rehabilitation plan directly related to your personal condition and will be checking you and your progress throughout your recovery or wellness program.
Most of us are unaware of the activities and lifestyle elements that may be aggravating our health and postural alignment. As an enhancement to chiropractic corrections, we offer lifestyle guidelines geared to help you fulfill your specific health and balance goals. This might include adding certain programs to your lifestyle such as mediation and avoiding other activities that sap your strength and alignment. We encourage you to inquire about our highly specialized lifestyle guideline sessions for a healthier, happier you.
Traction / Decompression Therapy
Spinal Decompression Therapy is an FDA approved, non-surgical therapy designed to relieve pain and problems associated with spinal disc issues. Bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, sciatica, and arm or leg pain can often be related to your spinal discs pressure. Discs problems may generate symptoms including pain, numbness, tingling and weakness. Chiropractic life center may choose to offer spinal traction (both cervical and lumbar) therapy, to provide relief. Please call our office at 503-255-7746 today to determine if this treatment is right for you.
Our doctors pay keen attention to the little aspects of your health that make a big difference. Stress and tension can come from the mind. Breathing exercises done correctly can relieve stress, lower blood pressure, improve rest, and restore health.
Eat for better health. Chiropractic care is intended to help patients achieve balance and restore optimal health. This requires eating to nourish your body and allow it the opportunity to convert food into energy. Our doctors may suggest certain dietary adjustments for you as well as vitamin supplementation. Our team can furnish you with an individualized plan to help guide you for your specific needs.
Attention to detail is critical. If it's needed on-site X-rays are available to keep you from having to leave the clinic or go to a separate imaging facility. The procedure is painless and quick.
