WHAT WE OFFER YOU
University Chiropractic and Wellness serves families and individuals of all ages. We assist patients in achieving a greater quality of life through a holistic healthcare model. Not only do our services alleviate pain, but we also strive to educate our patients and inspire them to take hold of their health and contribute to the well-being of future generations.
Our individualized treatment plans provide care for the whole body, as we believe the entire body must be in working order to achieve optimal health. We do not interrupt the body’s healing powers, but assist in spinal integrity, guiding the nervous system to proper function.
We provide chiropractic adjustments in order to treat subluxations or misalignments of the spine using contemporary chiropractic techniques. Adjustments are safe and effective in alleviating pain and correcting the problem at the source. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Amber Aiken has years of training and experience in performing chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Amber incorporates the following techniques into her practice: Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson Drop, Activator, and extremity adjustments.
Contingent on specific patient need, we provide Kinesiology taping for tissue gliding, joint support and function. Kinesiology taping enables the body's tissues to separate from the muscles underneath to provide an appropriate glide of muscles. After tissue injury or inflammation, our tissue can put pressure on our muscles. By allowing a separation, this can help to alleviate that pressure which can cause pain. Kinesiology taping also provides the essential stability, swelling reduction, muscle function, and promotion of good postural patterns that our joints need to move correctly. Pain relief can also be a wonderful benefit of kinesiology taping by creating a space in our joints for good range of motion. In addition, it is hypoallergenic and water resistant which enables it to be worn up to 5 days.
To improve blood circulation and function, we also provide cupping therapy. Cupping therapy is a technique used to improve blood circulation to specific areas, while relieving muscle tension. Cups are placed specifically on areas over tissue damage or tense and tight muscles. This is a great way to promote new tissue repair for healing, and good muscle function.
MYOFASCIAL RELEASE (MASSAGE THERAPY)
Depending on your treatment plan we also offer myofascial release to support and alleviate pain in the muscular system. Myofascial release is a medical-based massage that focuses on the problem areas to release muscles and lactic acid build up. We have licensed massage therapists (LMTs) with years of experience and training to serve our patients. Massage therapy complements chiropractic adjustments, which can lead to quicker and more noticeable results.
Our in-office rehabilitation center is an essential component of chiropractic care and overall wellness. Our licensed staff will assist patients in stretching and corrective exercises to help strengthen the muscular system. We also use electric muscle stimulation to relax muscles, increase flexibility, decrease pain and inflammation, reduce muscle spasms, and promote healing.
As part of our goal to contribute to a higher quality of life and wellness of our patients, our doctor can provide specific recommendations on nutrition, exercise and other healthy lifestyle choices to patients so that they are able to reach their optimal level of health and well-being.
