Chiropractic Works of Park City is proud to be different.
It is my unrelenting belief that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism that can and will heal itself, given half a chance. I will go as far to say that ALL dis-ease is related to the nervous system being under unnecessary stress due to the presence of one or more spinal subluxations and associated inflammation. Regular chiropractic care can greatly help.
The benefits of regular chiropractic adjustments are numerous and include being pain free, feeling amazing and enjoying a healthy day-to-day existence. Many people unfortunately deal with unnecessary discomfort due to spinal subluxations, which are small misalignments of the spine. However small these misalignments are, the presence of subluxations can have a negative impact on the immune system and overall health. A simple example of this would be someone with gastric reflux, aka. heartburn, a very common disorder. A subluxation at the 6th. thoracic vertebra could very likely be the culprit? There are many examples of health issues that are due to the presence of one or more subluxations.
Each appointment consists of a half hour treatment that will include several types of therapy, depending on your individual needs. A session with Dr. Mann will typically include:
Full spine adjustments (every visit)
A full spine treatment is done by manipulating the spine (an adjustment) to remove any subluxations in the spinal column. Subluxations can in some cases cause pain, but in many cases, cause no perceived pain, but instead have a negative effect on the nervous system and the function of the cells, tissues and organs. Learn more about subluxation of the spine.
Extremity adjustments (when necessary)
Extremity adjustments can correct for misalignment in other areas of the body, such as the legs, ankles, toes, shoulders, arms, hands, and fingers. These adjustments can help the body function at its optimal level. People who have jobs that require repetitive motions or athletes tend to benefit from this type of treatment.
Vibra-cussor™ head-to-toe (every visit)
Vibra-Cussor™ percussive therapy is an exciting treatment approach for muscle and ligament problems and related myo-fascial conditions. The Vibra-Cussor™ delivers waves of percussive impulses deep into the tissues of the body, these percussive waves help promote lymphatic flow, circulation and decrease muscle spasm.
Core muscle stretching (every visit)
Core muscles are the cornerstone of your physical balance and well-being. They are important for exercising as well as for keeping you upright. Stretching and strengthening core muscles helps prevent back pain and injury, in addition to maintaining your flexibility. Core stretches are typically done passively prior to adjustments.
Cold laser (when necessary)
Cold laser therapy is used to stimulate any tissues that have been damaged due to injury. By stimulating the tissues with different wave lengths of laser light, inflammation, pain and swelling can be decreased and healing promoted. Learn more about cold laser therapy for pain.
