What are Chiropractic Services?

Chiropractic is an evidence-informed, non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. Chiropractors use a combination of treatments after taking a comprehensive health history, perform a detailed musculoskeletal physical examination and establish a diagnosis related to the spine, nervous system and joints.

Chiropractic treatment aims to correct dysfunctions related to muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. The main chiropractic treatment technique involves manual therapy, especially manipulation of the spine, other joints, and soft tissues, but may also include exercises, health, and lifestyle counseling.

Often chiropractors seek to ease pain and improve the viability of patients and lecture them on how they can be healthy through exercise, ergonomics, and other forms of therapies to promote optimal health and well being.

Benefits of Chiropractic Services

Chiropractors are majorly known for focusing on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and their impact on your general health and wellness. Chiropractic services are now widely in use, treating everything from back pain to stress to sports injuries. Some benefits of Chiropractic care include the following:

Provides powerful pain relief: one of the main benefits of chiropractic care is pain relief as well as finding the root cause of the pain and/or dysfunction. It can assist in the relief or even the treatment of some health and body issues like sciatica, neck pain, scoliosis, lower back pain, headaches, and frozen shoulder syndrome.

Promotes healthy joint function: inflammation is one of the top reasons for the development of muscle tension, joint issues, and pain. Chiropractic adjustments have been proven to help reduce chronic inflammation, thereby relieving lower back pain and joint pain. Chiropractic adjustments are intended to alleviate joint and back pain by returning the joint to its natural alignment, allowing it to properly support the body’s weight and achieve a wider range of motion.

Personalized treatment plans: every case and human body is unique to its own. A personalized assessment will help properly diagnose the root cause to provide the chiropractor with better insight on what may be occurring. From there, a personalized treatment will be provided consisting of various techniques such as joint mobilizations, manual therapy and corrective exercises.

  • Sports Massage Therapy

Chiropractic Techniques

Spinal Manipulation: also called spinal manipulative therapy is a technique where practitioners apply a specifically directed manual impulse, or thrust, to a joint, at or near the end of the passive (or physiological) range of motion. It’s designed to relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. It’s often used to treat back, neck, shoulder, and headache pain.

Myofascial Release:  is a technique that helps attend to groups of muscles and nerves that become trapped under adhered connective tissue. Fascias are layered bands of fibrous connective tissues. They surround and wrap organs, muscles and bones. Fascia could be affected by stress (often repetitive), trauma, postural imbalance and inflammation creating restrictions and adhesions referred to as snags.

Corrective Exercise:  is a technique that utilizes an understanding of biomechanics, anatomy and kinesiology to fix and address common movement compensations and imbalances to improve the overall quality of movement during workouts and in everyday life.

Who Can Benefit from Chiropractic Services?

If you have a history of headaches, upper and lower back pains, chiropractors are widely known for treating back and neck pain, they also treat bone and soft tissue conditions.

People seek the help of a chiropractor for many different reasons including pain relief, mobility, flexibility, health care and performance enhancement. Pain is the body’s warning system, but it’s not foolproof. Judging your health by how you feel can be dangerous. Many conditions and diseases are well advanced by the time you are aware of them.

Many people along with athletes use Chiropractic Services as a means of enhancing their performance and improving their overall quality of life.

As a chiropractor that also struggles with chronic pain myself, James is the best strengthening coach I've found to help with my ongoing pain problems. His solid knowledge about structural stability and mobility has opened my eyes about the role that rehab plays in therapy and in fitness. James is also super creative with exercise prescription, his instruction are easy to follow and results are immediate. Learning from him has made me healthier in my body and even made me a better chiropractor in my own practice. Highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for easy to follow solutions to your rehab needs in a relaxed clinic environment

My experience over the last few months with Lu Strength & Therapy have been truly phenomenal. Lu is extremely personable and an infinite source of knowledge. The attention to detail that comes with the treatment with the added transparency creates such great experience keeping me excited to come back! The take home strength and mobility workouts Lu uniquely curates for you are very enjoyable and highly effective. After years of jumping between various practitioners and my shoulder problems only exponentially worsening, within 2 appointments I felt confident that Lu’s approach would get me to where I needed to be and few months later, I was correct. To add, the appointment pricing to time spent with Lu has been better than anywhere else I’ve been. I genuinely couldn’t recommend a facility more!
