Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Doreen Lewis-Overton, a Certified Clinical Nutritionist, with chiropractic diplomate specialties in nutrition and internal diagnosis, can provide a structured nutritional program, based on your individual needs, using state of the art blood work and allergy testing.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office uses, as independent contractors, Licensed Massage Therapists that deliver specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
We teach our patients exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle, full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each of our patients is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
