Oakchunas Chiropractic Center: Our clinic utilizes state of the art equipment and treatment therapies in order to provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments are a safe, natural and effective procedure to fix subluxations in the spine and give your body the ability to heal itself.
Impulse adjusting or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, is a form of chiropractic adjustments whereby Dr. Oakchunas utilizes a hand held instrument that delivers multiple incremental thrusts per second, making it much stronger and faster than a typical single thrust administered by a manual adjustments. By dividing the energy of a single thrust into rapid successive inputs, impulse adjusting provides for a much more comfortable and effective adjustment. This type of adjustment is great for young children, the elderly, individuals with acute or extreme pain and sensitive individuals.
Why You Should Go to a Chiropractor
Part of the chiropractic approach involves determining whether the body’s natural structure has caused problems with the functions in other areas of your body because of reactions in the nervous system. Structural changes can affect the nerves and the spinal cord by affecting the normal communication of information from the brain to the rest of the body.
The Importance of Spinal & Posture Screening at our Clinic.
Back pain, neck pain and various other physical ailments often originate in the spine but in order to provide a comprehensive treatment plan to alleviate the symptoms, an exact cause must be determined. A spinal and posture screening serves as the initial step to formulating a specific solution to the health problem.
