Chiropractors focus on the health of the joints of the body, particularly the spine. Through a variety of hands on tests, the chiropractor will determine which areas are not moving as well as they should, how this is affecting the overall function of the body, and if an irritation of the nerves are involved (eg: disc herniation).

 Chiropractic Adjustment

The main tool chiropractors use to correct this is the adjustment, or spinal manipulation. Dr. Jackie will determine which type of chiropractic adjustment is suitable for you based on your condition, your age, your bone health, and your personal preference. Dr. Jackie practices Diversified, Thompson, and Activator Techniques for spinal adjustment.

The goal of the adjustment is to decrease pain, increase function, and get you moving and feeling your best. Dr. Jackie may also recommend exercises, stretches, or modifications to your lifestyle that will enhance your long term health and prevent future illnesses.

 Sports Care

As an athlete, you push your body to the limit to reach and maintain your peak performance. At some point you’re likely to incur injuries. When you do, how you treat those injuries will often determine how quickly and completely your body will recover.

Receiving immediate care from Dr. Jackie at the onset of your injury can help accelerate and optimize your body’s natural healing process. Unlike conventional medical care which often focuses only on treating your symptom or injury, chiropractic care goes beyond to identify and treat the underlying source of the problem. Dr. Jackie approaches the health of your body as an integrated whole, considering the history and condition of your muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and nervous system to provide a natural, comprehensive treatment program for optimal results.

 Prenatal Care

Pregnancy brings many new changes to your body which can disrupt your nervous system. Hormonal fluctuations can cause nausea, heartburn, indigestion, migraines, mood swings, fatigue and more. Physical changes to accommodate your growing child can cause muscles strains, stretch ligaments and irritated nerves. This can result in backache, pelvic pain, joint stiffness, and sciatica. Dr. Jackie’s gentle chiropractic care helps prevent and alleviate these symptoms, without the use of medications.

The goal of the adjustment is to improve your pelvic alignment and relieve any tension in the ligaments surrounding the pelvis. Maintaining optimal spinal health during pregnancy can greatly reduce or eliminate pain and discomfort, improve mobility and flexibility, and even shorten your labor, delivery and recovery time.

 Pediatric Care

Newborns experience birth trauma, infants bump and roll, toddlers topple and tumble, and children climb and fall. As a parent, you see lots of bumps and bruises come and go. It is important that these injuries heal properly to prevent complications as they grow. Dr. Jackie has helped many young patients safely and naturally regain their health.

For pediatric care, Dr. Jackie gently applies specific pediatric technique to relieve tension on the affected structures. Some of the common conditions include:

  • Preteen Sports Injury

  • Postural Adjustment

  • Congenital & Adolescent scoliosis

  • Auto Accident

  • Toddler Injuries (eg. falls, rolls, bumps)

  • Torticollis

Flexion Distraction Technique

Flexion distraction technique utilizes a specialized table that gently distracts or stretches the lumbar spine in a rhythmic pumping motion. This treatment takes pressure off of the spinal discs,and in turn reduces spinal nerve inflammation.

 Myofascial Release

When repetitive trauma, poor posture, and inflammatory response occurs, fascia, which surrounds all muscles of the body, can reorganize, thicken, and shorten, which can affect mobility as well as cause pain. Myofascial release therapy stretches, separates, and loosens the fascia to restore motion, increase blood flow and relieve pain.

IAST/Graston Therapy

There are many forms of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue. The most commonly know term for this treatment is “Graston” and has been around for decades. Dr. Jackie practices this technique by using a variety of stainless steel instruments to break up adhesion’s and to treat chronic inflammation. It is great for removing adhesions and restoring range of motion in joints.

 Rock/Kinesio Taping
