Chiropractic addresses the neuromusculoskeletal system in a holistic manner. Many common problems are caused by dysfunction in the muscles, joints and nerves, or a combination of those. Chiropractic doctors are trained to analyze the relationship between muscles, joints and nerves in order to determine the source of physical pain. With this knowledge, chiropractors address the root of the patients issue to relieve present pain and prevent future problems.
Dr Fagen and Dr Bain commonly treat:
• Low Back Pain
• Neck pain
• Shoulder / Rotator Cuff pain
• Rib Pain
• Pinched Nerve
Our treatments always include an assessment, and a hands on approach. We often use modalities such as interferential current or laser, and also often adjust spinal joints when appropriate. For those who are uncomfortable with or not candidates for manual adjustments, we use instrument adjusting (activator tool) or gentle mobilizations to achieve proper spinal motion and release. We also send our patients home with home exercises to do.. so be prepared to do your homework!
At RHCC, we use the Bioflex laser system. Laser therapy is an extremely safe and effective tool to heal injured and damaged cells. There is no pain or discomfort during treatment, and clinical results are impressive.
THREE DIFFERENT TYPES OF LIGHT
The bioflex laser system uses 3 different types of light to stimulate cellular healing: Red, Infrared, and Infrared Laser. The different lights are applied sequentially, and each penetrates deeper than the last.
STIMULATES CELLS TO HEAL
Cells respond to light stimulation by increasing production of ATP, their main energy source. This allows damaged cells to heal and work more efficiently.
Laser therapy is safe and effective on any damaged tissue. This means that we can use it to push healing on any part of the body (with the exception of the eye).
Patients report excellent results on tendinitis, low back pain, disc herniation, knee sprains and more.
Your feet are the foundation of your body. When your foundation is unstable, the stresses are sent up the biomechanical chain. Many people have feet with too little support -- hyperpronation. This causes stress on the knees, the hips, and low back, and has even been implicated in upper back and neck issues. Orthotics are a simple way to correct improper foot mechanics. We recommend you replace your orthotics every two years, as both your feet and symptoms change over time.
Orthotics are custom fit to your foot, to provide you with the exact correction that you need. Ideally, you barely notice your orthotics. In fact, the only thing you should notice is that you feel better!
Most insurance plans cover a portion or all of the cost of new orthotics. It is a good idea to call your insurance company and find out your specific policy coverage. Please see our insurance information for a list of questions you can ask them.
