Specific Spinal Adjustments
Adjusting the spine is the cornerstone of chiropractic. We utilize multiple techniques in order to provide the greatest service to our patients. Along with the traditional manual adjustments, your doctor may use special tables or adjusting instruments for infants, children, and pregnant women. For those knowledgeable in chiropractic, Dr. Riley primarily uses Diversified (Hands On) technique, Nimmo, some activator, and Thompson.
Certain types of physiological therapeutics are used in our office to assist in relieving pain and speeding the recovery time of tissues. Depending on your history and examination findings, your doctor may add a regimen of physiological therapeutics modalities designed to help the healing process of muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These therapies include, but are not limited to ultrasound, heat, cryotherapy (ice), and intersegmental traction.
Learning how to use your body properly is an essential part of the chiropractic approach to health. Throughout your chiropractic care, you will be instructed in the proper use of an exercise program, custom-tailored to your individual needs. These exercises become an integral part, not only of getting well, but of staying well. Exercise helps to strengthen the spine and reduce the likelihood of reinjury.
Simply stated, "You are what you eat." Often, the difference between regaining health and remaining ill is the patient's eating and drinking habits. During your initial consultation, your doctor will ask specific questions to determine if you require special nutritional advice. It is a critically important part of your chiropractic care and overall health.
Here at New Bern Chiropractic Care we offer a wide variety of nutritional supplements such as Glucosamine/Chondroitin, Omega 3 fish oils, Calcium, magnesium, Mona Vie, BIOFREEZE for stiff and achy joints, and many more vitamins and supplements!
