Ask Us Your Chiropractic Care Questions!
What exactly is chiropractic care? How does it help?
The goal of chiropractic care is to bring your entire body into optimal health by correcting mechanical misalignments in the spine and anywhere else in the body where dysfunction is present. Vertebral misalignments are called “subluxations” and they can pinch nerves and cause imbalance and pain of all kinds in the body. Our chiropractor uses hands-on and instrument adjusting techniques to realign the spine, which enables the nervous system to direct healing resources where you need them.
What is a spinal adjustment?
Our chiropractor, after diagnosing your condition with x-rays and Applied Kinesiology muscle testing, uses gentle, precise pressure with his hands, or with impulse vibrations from an instrument, to work the vertebrae back into correct alignment. Dr. Secrest uses low-force, Applied Kinesiology based technique, called Koren Specific Technique (KST) that is very comfortable and effective for patients of all ages and health conditions.
What kind of conditions can be treated with chiropractic care?
Our chiropractor can help you with almost any musculoskeletal injury or condition and more. Here are a few examples: back pain, neck pain, whiplash, headaches, migraines, sports injuries, car accident injuries, TMJ, carpal tunnel syndrome, women’s health concerns, elbow, shoulder, knee and foot pain, arthritis, tendonitis, stress, allergies and even ADD/ADHD. Dr. Secrest, DC has a holistic, collaborative approach to healthcare; if he feels that additional treatment is needed by another discipline, he will refer you.
Who is a good candidate for chiropractic care?
Dr. Secrest, DC can help patients of all ages and situations. His adjustments and techniques are gentle and intuitive for babies, children, and the elderly, very relieving for pregnant women who need drug-free pain relief, and strong enough to provide appropriate care for athletes, dads and construction workers.
