Through Chiropractic Care, we focus on the relationship between the nervous system and the spine. We will strive to reduce pain and improve functionality, while taking steps to enhance overall health and well-being for our patients.
What to Expect…
A typical visit to Windsor Hills Family Chiropractic Center will include myofascial release (deep muscle work) applied to tight muscles, rehab training, Cox distraction and a low-force adjustment. An impulse instrument will be used on the neck (low-force instrument adjusting). Dr. Claire specializes in low-force techniques, which are gentle enough for a young child or elderly person.
- The ScoliRoll® is a type of scoliosis treatment for thoracic (upper and middle) or lumbar (lower) scoliosis. It is a unique device which can be used as a supplement to other scoliosis therapies, such as specific exercise programs and rigid or dynamic bracing.
- The Denneroll orthotic device creates a specific bending moment, de-rotating and straightening the scoliosis. This allows for muscle and ligament stretch and also creates the opportunity for spinal stabilization exercises while the scoliosis is in a straightened position.
By using the patented Denneroll orthotic device, the ScoliRoll® aids in curve straightening, de-rotation of the spine and ligament stretch (especially for patients with stiff scoliosis curves to improve spinal flexibility).
We utilize laser treatment to maximize circulation and stimulate secretion of anti-inflammatory enzymes to reduce pain and boost healing. This entails using both pulsed laser light and infrared light to help with:
- Wound Healing
- Carpal Tunnel
- Elbow Tendonitis
- Diabetic Neuropathy
- Scar Tissue
- Joint Pain
Ultrasound is a machine that uses sound waves to generate heat within a particular part of your body. We apply gel to the probe and your body part (to eliminate air) and in a circular motion we will rub the probe on – your shoulder joint for example – to generate heat in the joint, increasing blood circulation.
Ultrasound aids in loosening up tissues to allow them to respond better to stretching or other manual techniques for tight joints or muscles. It is also helpful in acute injuries for non-thermal effects. For example, no heat is generated but it can increase blood flow to reduce inflammation or swelling.
Unlike regular chiropractic, which focuses mostly on immediate pain relief, Chiropractic BioPhysics® goes one step further to correct the source of the problem. Most patients not only report relief from pain and discomfort, but as their posture begins to align, they notice other conditions improving as well.
Chiropractic Biophysics helps to improve the following conditions:
• Back and Neck Pain
• Headache / Migraines
• Postural Deformities
• Shoulder Pain
• Trouble Sleeping
• Low Metabolism
• Acid Reflux / GERD
• Plantar Fasciitis
• Frozen Shoulder
• Disc Herniations
Cox® Technic is a non-surgical, gentle spinal manipulation that treats herniated or bulging discs, canal stenosis and other spinal related conditions. This method is performed with the patient lying on The Cox Table, which is a specially designed chiropractic instrument.
- The Cox Table permits the effective administration of flexion-distraction, decompression (creating a vacuum on the disc to draw it back off of the nerve root to relieve pain), adjustment and manipulation.
The overall goal of Cox® Technic is to help spinal pain patients go from "pain" to "no pain" as quickly as possible. It works with the body’s design to encourage its natural healing process and return patients to their desired quality of life.
We provide custom-molded, individually designed shoe inserts used to treat many conditions affecting the foot, leg, hip or back. Orthotics may not be for everyone, but they have been proven to be very effective in relieving common complaints.
Custom designed orthotics can help improve the following conditions:
Shop Vionic Sandals
- Corns and calluses
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Hammer toe or claw toe
- High arch
- Forefoot pain
- Limb length deformity
- Lower back pain
- Morton’s neuroma
- Plantar fasciitis (heel pain or spur)
- Runner’s painful knee
We carry Orthaheel/Vionic sandals at our practice, which have a standard arch needed to decrease heel, knee, hip and lower back pain. Vionic began with the work of renowned podiatrist, Phillip Vasyli, a pioneer and innovator in the field of lower-limb biomechanics. We are happy to offer these stylish, comfortable and alleviating shoe options for our patients. Ask us about them today!
