Pediatric ChiropracticHave you considered chiropractic for your kids in Farmington? At Bentley Chiropractic we firmly believe in protecting a child’s body by making sure they have the best possible functioning nervous system. It is well known that children bounce back quickly, but many parents don’t understand the long term effects of misalignment that children develop in their spine. Unfortunately, children do not always verbalize exactly what they feel when they are sore, uncomfortable or in pain. Just like with adults, if the underlying cause is left alone for too long it can develop into much more serious issues.
Disc Herniation TreatmentThe type of pain that is experienced due to a disc herniation depends on the type and position of the herniation. If the damaged disc is irritating a surrounding nerve, shooting pain and weakness into the legs may develop. The discomfort is often described as stabbing and lightening like. To understand how a disc herniation develops, it is best to think of the disc as a jelly donut. If the outer edges of the donut (disc) are damaged over time, most typically from wear and tear, the jelly in the middle of the disc can escape. This level of severity can be very difficult to reverse. However, chiropractic care has been shown to prevent the advancement of the herniation, and provide relief from the associated pain.
Chiropractic AdjustmentsIt is estimated that between 90-95% of women suffer from symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and 15% of women experience debilitating cramps. Over the counter medications and prescription medications can ease the symptoms and birth control can as well but all three of these avenues have side effects that range from headaches, nausea, decreased libido, mood swings and in extreme cases death. Chiropractic adjustments are a safe natural treatment that can improve premenstrual problems and pains for many women.
Spinal AdjustmentsAs with any condition, a person should always consider the most conservative approach to treatment first. Chiropractic care has been demonstrated in numerous research studies to slow or stop the progression of scoliosis. Our team at Bentley Chiropractic has the resources and experience to provide you the most appropriate care which may prevent you from having more invasive and aggressive treatments. To accomplish this, our team will perform a full health history to identify any factors that could be contributing to the presence of a scoliosis. Often occupational factors, lifestyle habits, previous traumas and recreational activities are at the roots of the problem. After these factors have been considered, we will likely perform specific spinal adjustments to reverse the body’s compensations and assist in the restoration process.
Nutritional ConsultationAs the science of chiropractic has evolved so have the techniques used within its practice. Common treatment methods have grown to include nutritional counseling, orthotics, lifestyle modification / exercise programs and physical rehabilitation programs. While these adjunctive treatments are certainly beneficial, spinal and joint manipulation remains the primary and most effective mode of treatment by our clinic. Statistics reflect that nearly 95% of patients that seek chiropractic care in Farmington do so as a result of musculoskeletal pain such as...
SubluxationIn order to make a proper diagnosis of plantar fasciitis, an exam must be performed. During the exam, your foot will be tested by performing reflexes, testing the muscle strength and tone, as well as coordination and balance. A structural evaluation will also be performed to check the knees, hips and pelvis. If there is poor weight distribution or improper gait (walking pattern) then that may have caused the plantar fasciitis. To rule out any other possible causes, such as a heel spur, fracture, or subluxation, an x-ray may be taken.
CryotherapyStatistically significant improvement was noted for 93% of the 28 patients studied in the Woodward study while under chiropractic care. In the research study chiropractic care consisted of spinal manipulation, PNF, and cryotherapy. Many of the patients were treated prior to the study with NSAIDS, soft colors and physiotherapy.
