Chiropractic treatment is for patients of all ages with conditions ranging from back pain to headaches. This includes a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system involving the ligaments, muscles, and joints. The nervous system is often impacted by these conditions causing referred pain and dysfunction distant from the region of injury. At Stanley Family Health, we take a Holistic approach to our treatments and focus on the body as a whole. Therefore we will counsel our patients on diet, nutrition, exercises, occupational/lifestyle modifications, and various other beneficial healthy habits that we deem appropriate.
The Chiropractic Manipulation/Adjustment is applied to a specific area of the body to help restore and enhance joint function. This often helps resolve joint inflammation and therefore reduces pain. Keeping normal joint function and range of motion will allow your joints to be in optimal condition during the duration of their use. When necessary, we combine chiropractic care with our muscle therapy treatment procedures in order to completely and effectively treat not only the joint, but the muscles around the joint. Muscles obviously play a huge role in joint health so it only makes sense to have muscles addressed along with the joint manipulation.
