Chiropractic adjustment, also referred to as manipulation, is performed by a chiropractor with the intention of correcting improper vertebrae alignment resulting from daily activity, trauma, stress, and environmental toxins. There is an overall systemic effect when vertebrae are out of place. Without proper spine alignment, nerve flow to systems in the body is impeded, and we can't function at our peak.
Chiropractors use either their hands or an instrument to move vertebrae and other joints back into place. Adjustments are an excellent way to keep you functioning at your highest level. When the body is in alignment, optimal flow from the brain to nerves and systems is achieved, and the body is able to respond and perform as designed.
Pain is either reduced or alleviated with time, and the wear and tear of disease-causing inflammation is reduced, especially if a healthy diet is also incorporated.
In addition to exams and spinal adjustments, our office provides ultrasound and electric muscle stimulation to help reduce pain and inflammation.
While recovering from injury or trauma, patients can greatly benefit from corrective exercises prescribed by their chiropractor.
Dr. Lehman will work with you to determine which exercises will benefit you the most, help you feel better faster, stay better longer, and prevent further injury.
Allow us to teach you how to stretch problem areas, assist you with flexibility and strength training, and determine if any activities or exercises should be restricted during your recovery.
*Chiropractic adjustments work best when performed in conjunction with corrective and therapeutic exercise.
Just a few minutes a day can greatly improve a patient's coordination, flexibility, strength, and range of motion while helping to reduce pain.*
Custom Foot Orthotics
Our office is committed to helping you rediscover a healthier you as you heal.
Orthotics are a great way to help prevent or correct pain and injury caused by standing and walking. Many people feel that orthotics are only appropriate for patients with foot problems, but abnormal foot mechanics can affect the entire body's alignment and lead to problems with ankles, knees, hips, lower back and headaches.
Orthotics can help realign and support the bones within the foot and ankle, taking pressure off other parts of the body. In addition, orthotics will help with weight distribution and pressure-reduction for toes, bunions and other parts of the foot.
Orthotics are an excellent investment for anyone who wants to improve their overall health by supporting the body that will carry them thousands of miles over the course of a lifetime. They can be worn on a daily basis, and utilized during most activities to reduce further stress. In some cases, they may even help prevent chronic problems that result in knee, hip and back injury.
During an orthotic fit, a patient's weight, health history, activity level and working environment are considered. Our orthotics are molded to your foot and worn home that day.
They are affordable, high quality, and a great investment into your overall health and well being. Our office provides custom orthotics which can be fitted during a regular office visit. Ask us about fitting yours today.
