At Shawnee Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our office.
Chiropractic is based on the science that the body is a self healing entity. Inferences in the body disrupt its ability to heal itself. Inferences can be caused by physical, chemical, and/or emotional stressors. A chiropractic adjustments intention is to relieve these inferences to allow the body to continue to function to its highest ability. A body functioning at it's highest ability can be seen as a decrease in pain, sleeping better, moving with ease, decreased anxiety/stress, increased athletic performance, and much more.
We use a hands on approach with both the Diversified and Thompson techniques to treat our patients both young and old. Low impact gentle adjusting is also used based on patient comfort. Doctors of Chiropractic are leading the field of preventative medicine with not only a impact on pain management but also nutrition and lifestyle education.
Acupuncture is a method of stimulating points on the skin to help the body heal itself. There is good evidence that acupuncture is effective for many different diseases and injuries. For example, recent research has shown acupuncture can benefit children suffering from asthma.
What is Laser Light Therapy? Low-level-laser therapy harnesses and magnifies energy from the invisible spectrum of light. The therapeutic laser gives these photons of light the ability to reach tissues up to 2 inches below the skin's surface. This process delivers energy and therapeutic light into damaged cells, so the process of repair and healing are greatly accelerated.
Combining the science of Rehabilitation with Chiropractic has been proven to help patients feel better and live more dynamic lives. Our office uses a hand on approach to injury rehabilitation.
