Chiropractic Adjustment (Spinal Manipulation)

Chiropractic care is both an art and a science. It’s a natural, drug-free approach to health and wellness.

By focusing on the spine and the central nervous system, chiropractic care helps restore our bodies to optimal function. It seeks to re-establish normal spinal mobility, which can reduce or even eliminate pain.

We focus on subluxation, or spinal misalignment. When you’re out of alignment, you might experience symptoms like:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Back pain
  • Numbness in the arms and legs

By reducing the misalignment, we can help you find:

  • Increased range of motion
  • Reduced pain
  • Improved function
Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the treatment of the body’s meridians. These invisible energy pathways conduct qi (pronounced “chee”) throughout the body.

A careful assessment helps the doctor identify energy patterns that are disrupted. Then, non-invasive treatments restore balance.

Acupuncture dates back more than 2,000 years. Today, more and more people are finding relief from a variety of disorders, thanks to this ancient healing practice.

Massage

We specialize in therapeutic massage. This clinical massage works to loosen muscles and includes strengthening and stretching techniques. The massage therapist uses manual manipulation to focus on 1 or more of these goals:

  • Facilitate healing
  • Improve flexibility and muscle tone
  • Improve athletic performance
  • Encourage long-term biochemical correction

Massage Therapy for Injury Recovery

Recovery after an injury or surgery can be tiring and frustrating. However, therapeutic massage can facilitate healing and play a significant role in pain management.

The massage therapist manipulates:

  • Tendons
  • Muscles
  • Soft tissues

This work relaxes muscles and encourages circulation.

Therapeutic massage can reduce inflammation and scarring. It can also prevent loss of function and help you bounce back better than before.

Sports Training Massage

Massage is a valuable part of any training regimen — both before and after an event. Sports massage:

  • Increases athletic performance
  • Enhances flexibility and range of motion
  • Reduces post-workout recovery time

Before an event, sports massage can prepare the muscles for strenuous use. It also stimulates the nervous system, increasing circulation. Massage also helps prevent injury by supporting proper biomechanics.

After an event, sports massage:

  • Removes the toxic build-up of lactic acids
  • Relaxes tightened muscles
  • Encourages circulation

Massage gets oxygen and nutrients pumping into vital areas, accelerating recovery time. Taking time out for massage can mean less down time overall.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Deep tissue laser therapy uses light to energize damaged immune cells and increase circulation. It’s a non-invasive, non-surgical way of reducing or even eliminating pain and inflammation.

The increased flow of blood and oxygen throughout the body speeds healing and restores function. Treatments are safe, painless, and fast. Five to 10 treatments can produce life-changing results.

Deep tissue laser therapy can dramatically reduce pain associated with:

  • Low-back strain
  • Bulging, fused, or slipped discs
  • Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
  • Temporamandibular joint disorder
  • Arthritic conditions
  • Post-surgical recovery
  • Headaches, including migraines
  • Sports injuries (pulled hamstrings, calves, etc.)
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Many other joint, muscle, circulatory, and inflammatory conditions
Spinal Decompression

What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a non-surgical traction based treatment for herniated or bulging disc is the neck and low back.

Effective for Many Conditions
Anyone who has back, neck, arm or leg pain caused by degenerated or damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression. The conditions include herniated or bulging disc, spinal stenosis, sciatica, facet syndrome, spondylosis or even failed spinal surgery.

Why Decompression is so Effective
Doctor skill combined with the computerized traction head are keys. Proper assessment, correct positioning and use of pre-programmed patterns of distraction and relaxation my reduce disc pressure allowing nutrients to accelerate disc healing.

Athletic Performance Enhancement
The role of chiropractic in sports is three-fold: it speeds recovery from injury, it enhances performance, and it helps prevent future problems.
Orthotics

Your feet are the foundation of your body. So, balance and support are important.

 

Most people with foot imbalances have little or no pain in their feet. Instead, the pain is transferred to other areas of the body.  Weakness or unstable positioning in either foot can contribute to pain in the knees, back, and neck.

Orthotics are shoe inserts that balance your feet. By stabilizing your stance, orthotics help:

  • Improve posture
  • Enhance the body’s performance and efficiency
  • Reduce pain
  • Contribute to whole-body wellness

We use advanced digital technology called The Associate to evaluate postural health. Foot Levelers, the leading orthotics producer, developed this scanner. It tests for foot and posture imbalances that impact overall bodily function.

With this information, the doctor can recommend proper orthotics to correct any imbalances.

Nutritional Therapy, Cholesterol Screening

Your nutritional fitness tells a lot about how your body is operating. At Kansas City Chiropractic, we have thorough methods to test your body’s levels of:

  • Nutrients
  • Cholesterol

These tests and a thorough consultation help us understand how you’re addressing your body’s needs — and how we can help you be more effective.

We’ll identify areas of excess and areas of deficiency. Then, we’ll recommend a specific plan to help your body function at peak efficiency and wellness.
