Chiropractic Adjustments and Services
Here at Front Street Chiropractic our doctors believe in providing one-on-one services for your treatment. If you are looking for a doctor that cares about your overall well being, then you have come to the right place. Our doctors utilize various chiropractic techniques to adjust the spine.
These services are suitable for a wide range of patients including; pregnant women, infants, children, adults, athletes, and senior citizens.
Types of adjusting include:
- Manual Adjusting (use of hands and nothing else)
- Drop Table Adjusting
- Flexion-Distraction Technique
- Activator Adjusting
- Chiropractic BioPhysics
- Motion Palpation Technique
Generally our doctors will perform soft tissue massage and myofascial release. Employing Graston tool assisted technique, Active Release (ART), and others, to prepare joints for a manual adjustment. The combination of the soft tissue work with the adjustment makes the treatment extremely effective and long lasting.
Rehabilitation and Corrective Exercises
Regaining strength and developing proper biomechanical function of joints and muscles is imperative to the recovery process. Our doctors will teach patients effective exercises designed to rehabilitate their injuries and to develop core strength and flexibility.
Working to correct posture and other dysfunctional movement patterns that the body may have adopted over time is essential for long term results.
Health is only as good as the foundation it is built upon. Proper nutrition is important part of that foundation. The doctors can provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices for s individual needs. Ranging from injury repair, weight loss, liver detoxification, to preventative care, and more. We also work closely with an in-office Nutritionist and Registered Dietician when a more in-depth consultation is appropriate.
Body Composition Analysis
Using a Bio-Impedence Analysis Machine (BIA) we can quickly, and painlessly assess the tissue and fluid compartments of the body to determine: the overall health of a patient’s cells, if a patient has a toxicity issue in their cells; hydration level of the patient; basal metabolic rate; and percent body fat. This is an excellent way of objectively keeping track of progress in treatment.
Dr. Kinneavy is Certified in the Webster Technique. This technique is used in the case of a Breech presentation on a pregnant woman. This extremely gentle approach helps the baby to flip into the proper position. It is based on the idea that the uterus is attached to the sacrum (a bone in the pelvis). When the sacrum is rotated out of position the uterus shape twists, making it difficult for the baby to invert as it normally would toward the end of pregnancy. Simply by fixing the sacral position, the uterus is released and the baby is able to get into the proper position for birth.
