Injury Care – Brain • Whiplash • Work
Dr. Best has always been an injury specialist, but has recently stepped up her training through an opportunity to study with the Spine Research Institute of San Diego. Through their program she became educated on not on the treatment of patients with brain and whiplash injuries, but also the fine art of diagnosing the sometimes subtle, but treatable, damage to these sensitive areas. This additional training equipped Dr. Best with the skills needed to better treat those patients coming into her office with work, auto, even sports or other type of injuries.
Dr. Best’s commitment to never stop educating herself has made her a better chiropractor and a better health care professional. She has learned, through her various trainings and experiences, the best way to explain the hard realities to attorneys and insurance companies. She has experience with depositions, and she always finds the time to help her patients, whether they need her in the examining room or the courtroom.
Massage Therapy makes patients feel better. From the time they are on the table, to the moment they walk out the door, until they walk back in for their next appointment, massage therapy is about the patient having a better quality of life.
It was also found that massage therapy can actual boost your immune system. The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine did a study on hormonal responses and immune system. They found that patients receiving massage had a significant decrease in hormones specific to immune suppression, and that there were measurable biological effects that may have a positive effect on the immune system.
Personal Chiropractics’ Therapists are trained in various techniques, including:
- Deep Tissue Massage
- Trigger Point Therapy
- Sports Massage
- Relaxation Massage Massage Therapy works, and combines with Dr. Best’s treatments, patients have had extreme success reaching their health goals.
STIM (Stimulation) Therapy Electrical Stimulation
STIM Therapy has been a recent innovation in chiropractic offices across the county. Physical therapy and sports medicine has begun integrating this therapy into treatment regimes, increasing results, and decreasing pain. Working with chiropractic treatment, this therapy works well for back and neck pain, headache problems, and other nerve issues. STIM therapy works to relieve inflamed muscles and nerves, and it functions as a means to allow inflamed muscles to relax, facilitating a natural healing process. STIM works to mimic the body’s nervous system. It does this through a series of safe, low frequency pulses concentrated on the affected area. During the process the muscles contract, increasing the temperature and blood circulation. The process is identical to the body’s natural healing process, but in the case of STIM, the stimulation comes from an outside source.
Because of the safe and effective method employed by STIM, many common nervous system disorders can be helped this way. STIM is not limited to muscular and joint pain, it can also be quite effective working towards the relief of constant headaches, numbness of the limbs, and chronic back pain. STIM has become a widely used process in our office. Personal Chiropractic stands behind the results, and the way it helps. This type of treatment encourags the body’s natural healing mechanisms. That means STIM can be tantamount to reducing a body’s dependence on medications and unnecessary surgeries, and that patients are healing. The symptoms that brought them to our office can be dealt with that much quicker, if we attack the underlying cause and make healthier patients.
