Although people do not have to wait until they are in pain to visit our clinic, pain is one of the main reasons they do. Whether they suffer from back pain, headaches, neck pain, whiplash or other injuries incurred from auto accident injury, sports or at the workplace, chiropractic care can help. Chiropractic treatments have also been used to effectively treat carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoporosis, arthritis, allergies, asthma, shoulder pain, sciatica, scoliosis and stress. Our chiropractor's techniques are effective for not only alleviating pain caused by a wide range of conditions, but also for treating the cause of the pain.
Each visit starts with an exam, evaluation and consultation at which time Dr. James can discern what issues need correction or attention and employ the most effective treatment plan. Treatment plans can consist of a single technique or a combination of techniques, depending on each individual situation.
One of the most common chiropractic treatments is spinal manipulation, also known as adjustments. An adjustment consists of a quick, yet gentle, thrust to the spine to correct a subluxation or misaligned bone in the spine. Spinal manipulations guide the bone back into its proper positioning so the body is once again balanced.
The Activator method is another common treatment method at our St Peters chiropractic clinic. The Activator is a hand-held, spring-loaded instrument that emits a rapid pulse, which can help restore balance to the spine. Our chiropractor first uses the instrument to detect abnormalities in the spinal joints and then applies the instrument to the affected areas to deliver low-force adjustments. The Activator can be effective for alleviating back pain and correcting other issues.
Other natural treatments offered in our St Peters chiropractic clinic include spinal and postural screenings, myofascial release, physical rehabilitation, corrective exercises, relief from headaches & migraines and trigger point therapy. Our treatments each have a role in restoring or maintaining a body's full mobility and functioning. Our St. Peters chiropractor also offers nutritional advice, which is a vital component for whole-body health and one more way chiropractic care can help people achieve it.
