Services What is chiropractic? Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.

The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.

Chiropractic adjustment rarely causes discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (as with some forms of exercise) that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours.

In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. When other medical conditions exist, such as cancer, stroke, asthma or autoimmune disorders, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.

Sport Specific Training is training that matches the actions and movements of the sport you participate in. Sport Specific Training, also known as functional training, can be used to achieve better results in any sport. It doesn’t matter which position you play, you can get better if you target moves in the gym that echo the moves you make in or on the court or field.

What you can expect from Sports Specific Training:

* Speed/agility training

* Strength training

* Explosive movements to enhance power

* Core strengthening

Personal Training includes guiding a client through a safe and effective fitness program that brings the client the greatest physical and behavioral benefits with the least amount of risk. It should incorporate all components of fitness, including muscular strength, muscular endurance, aerobic endurance, flexibility, and body composition. It typically begins by gathering health information from the client; this initial meeting is followed by a fitness assessment, the development of a detailed plan and then exercise sessions. Personal Training should also include a nutrition plan and guidance for positive behavioral changes.

Personal Training should never be a painful nor grueling workout that leaves an individual debilitated for days with excessive muscle soreness. The personal training program should match the participant’s goals and abilities, and it should be progressive as the person adapts to greater fitness levels.

Contact us to find out how you can experience one-on-one personal training right from the comfort of your own home. We are now offering virtual training to clients who want to lose the weight, feel better but can not afford the cost of having a private personal trainer. With the help of Skype, Dr. Heather Gansel can train you for a fraction of the cost.
