Chiropractic Techniques from Our Frankfort Chiropractor
Our Frankfort chiropractor at Advanced Chiropractic Wellness, Dr. Scott Stratton, employs a variety of services to provide a high standard of chiropractic care for patients just like you. These techniques include:
Chiropractic Adjustment - Chiropractic adjustment is a safe, effective method for treating subluxation, abnormal joint motion caused by misalignment. The traditional Diversified Technique makes use of careful, precise manual adjustments to specific joints, based on a preliminary evaluation using x-rays and other diagnostic methods. Dr. Stratton uses chiropractic adjustment to free up stiff joints, normalize spinal alignment and posture, reduce musculoskeletal strain and relieve nerve impingement.
Activator Method - The Activator Method is the only instrument-based chiropractic adjustment technique whose effectiveness is backed up by extensive documented evidence. Our Frankfort chiropractor has special training in this method, which features a handheld adjustment device known as an Activator. This device can deliver extremely fast thrusts to small areas of the body -- so fast, in fact, that the muscles don't have time to tense up in reaction, which allows for gentler adjustment sessions.
Applied Kinesiology - Applied kinesiology is a highly useful companion therapy to chiropractic adjustment. This modality can help us find underlying ailments that affect your biomechanics as well as your systemic function. that's because it operates on the principle that muscle function can serve as a direct indicator of systemic health or illness. We test the strength and resistance of individual muscles under stress or while you are tasting certain foods. Weakness on a specific muscle indicates a problem in the internal organ or physical system associated with that muscle. Dr. Stratton can use applied kinesiology as part of a "whole-body" healing plan to help you recover from sports injuries, auto accident injuries, workplace injuries and many other issues requiring rehabilitation.
Acupuncture - Traditional Chinese Medicine uses a complex map of acupuncture points and meridians that followed the flow of energy, or "qi," throughout the body. Pain and illness were the results of disturbed qi flow, which could be corrected through the insertion of hair-thin needles at specific acupuncture points. Modern studies indicate that acupuncture influences nerve signaling and stimulates the production of pain-relieving endorphins in the body. Our Frankfort chiropractor may prescribe acupuncture as a complement to chiropractic adjustment and other techniques to relieve pain and improve physical function.
Nutritional Counseling - Nutritional counseling can provide essential support for chiropractic care as part of an integrated healing and wellness plan. Our clinic provides an advanced diagnostic techniques called Nutritional Response Testing (NRT) that uses acupuncture points to help us determine any food sensitivities that may be impairing your health. We can also provide the necessary nutrition advice to steer you away from damaging foods toward a life of healthier eating.
