02 Jun Finding The Root Cause of Your Pain……
Unfortunately, traditional medical pain treatment plans typically consist of medications to cover up or mask the symptoms with powerful painkillers, anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxers, steroid injections, and/or surgery.
At Sunset Chiropractic & Wellness chiropractic treatment is selected and designed from a thorough consultation, health history, physical examination (orthopedic/neurological testing), digital posture analysis, weight bearing sitting x-rays using 41 measurements and 23 angles analyzing and comparing the spine to a mathematical model. In specific cases additional diagnostics could be ordered (Digital Motion X-rays/CTs/MRIs) to obtain or confirm a diagnosis.
Through our specialized diagnostic procedures
our healthcare team of doctors and therapists identify the cause of the health condition commonly missed by lying down and standing diagnostics such as MRI, CT, and Static X-rays.
Sunset Chiropractic and Wellness’s Structural Correction Chiropractic Care rehabilitate the damaged spine and its damaged structures (muscles, ligaments, fascia, discs, bone, and nerves) improving the structure and functions, reducing and removing the pain, and improving overall quality of life.
Once a treatment plan is developed the first step to rehabilitate a weakened spine is to apply our Flexibility and Hydration Procedures. Specialized therapies that will decrease tight tissues along the spine, bring hydration and nutrients to the damaged discs, and increase spinal flexibility. Preparing the spine for the second component of the treatment.
The Alignment Procedures. This is when the doctor will shift the spine to better alignment based off of the x-ray measurements using hands, specialized instruments, and specialized tables.
After the alignment procedures we want the body to start holding these new positions naturally. This is where we will apply our Strengthening and Reeducation Procedures. This is a specialized body weighting system that will retrain the brain and strengthen the postural muscles along the spine to start holding new positions naturally.
All 3 forms of Rehabilitation have a positive effect on spinal correction rehabilitation and are used synergistically in our system of care.
1) Passive – the modality or rehabilitation tool is performing the treatment as the patient is not actively performing the treatment but only receiving the effects without conscious effort. Example: Traction
2. Active– the patient is consciously performing a treatment or movement such as a conscious isotonic or isometric postural exercise.
3. Reactive– the patient involuntarily reacts to stimuli causing unconscious involuntary neuromuscular spinal reflex reaction and reeducation. Example is Spinal Correction Body Weighting.
