We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Don has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Acupuncture is the practice of manipulating the body's Qi (pronounced chi) or "vital energy" to promote and increase one's health and wellbeing. It has been practiced in almost every civilization on the planet for thousands of years. Acupuncture theory is that the Qi follows invisible paths on, through and around the body. These paths are called meridians and again are not visible but are more like the latitude and longitude lines that we use on a map, we know there are there and we use them to navigate but we just cannot see them.
The type of acupuncture practice by Dr. Don is Meridian Acupuncture. He uses a tool called Electo Meridian Imaging. Much like MRI's or CT's, this allows one to see how the energies are moving throughout the body.
Electro Meridian Imaging measures the body's electro magnetic resistance at key acupoints. This will determine if a meridian is within or outside the accepted boundaries of the body by either being too high, too low, extremely split from left to right or ideally, within normal limits.
The meridian system is very similar to radio in that radio waves likewise cannot be seen by the human eye but we all understand that they do in fact exist. Meridian acupuncture compares to radio in that if a city has 12 radio stations, much like our 12 meridians, it is imperative that each specific station broadcast at its individual frequency. In other words if a station is operating at 94.5 on the dial it comes in loud and clear, however if it comes in at 94.4 or 94.6 the radio broadcast is only static. There is nothing wrong with the radio only the fine tuning is out of adjustment. A simple adjustment to the radio will bring it into full normalcy.
We teach our patient's special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30 - 40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
