Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture is a complete system of medicine that allows a properly trained and qualified practitioner to manage many different health concerns. TCM Acupuncture can be used alone or in conjunction with other systems of medicine to help facilitate improvement in health and resolution of symptoms. The goal of TCM Acupuncture treatment is to resolve health issues and to restore and maintain the body’s natural state of wellness. It is a unique system of medicine that utilizes and encourages the bodies innate ability to heal. The documented physiological effects of TCM acupuncture support the observed clinical benefits. Like any form of medicine, it is both a science and an art.
Chiropractic Care – Pregnancy / Perinatal
Chiropractic care is a wonderful addition to your perinatal health team. Prenatal chiropractic care helps balance the pelvic muscles, ligaments and joints, allowing for improvement of biomechanical function. Feel more mobile, have less back and hip pain and allow you to continue your regular activities throughout your pregnancy. Adjustments are modified to ensure patient comfort and safety. Dr. Kelly has additional training in pregnancy and post-partum care and is Webster Technique certified.
Chiropractic Care – Pediatric
Our goal with chiropractic care for infants and children is to optimize sensory-motor development and correct neuromusculoskeletal (NMSK) issues before they become bigger problems. NMSK issues we commonly see are breastfeeding troubles, developmental delays, abnormal crawling patterns, head tilts, trauma, sports injuries, headaches, back pain and postural strains. Although parents often bring their children in for specific issues, many parents choose to bring their infants and children in for wellness care – ultimately correcting problems before they become long-term issues. Adjustments are modified significantly for infants and children and are very safe. Dr. Kelly has extensive additional training in pediatric chiropractic are and is a member of the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association).
Functional Range Conditioning
A system of joint health, and mobility training based in scientific principals and research. Mobility refers to the amount of USABLE motion that one possesses across a particular articulation (joint). The more mobile a person is, the more they are able to maximize their movement potential safely, efficiently, and effectively.
Supervised Exercise Therapy
The research supporting supervised exercise therapy is vast. The mechanisms of response to exercise include improvement in daily functional efficiency, healing of chronic tissue through small doses of inflammatory activation, increased pain tolerance, and adaptations within skeletal muscle.
Registered Massage Therapy
Registered massage therapists provide a special dimension of health care to help some patients in ways that no other discipline can match. Massage therapists are an essential element of world-class treatment and prevention of acute and chronically painful conditions. Research shows that massage therapy including remedial exercise can reduce pain, anxiety and stress, improve joint movement, sleep and ones quality of life.
