Relieve the pain. Feel better today.
Maybe it was an injury at work or whiplash from a car accident. It may be low back pain or headache pain that has gotten worse. The bottom line is it hurts and you want it to stop. Dr. Russ can help you feel better quickly. He uses a variety of chiropractic techniques including hands on manual adjusting, activator, and impulse adjusting. Dr. Russ uses light muscle massage and Biofreeze analgesic lotion to reduce pain and swelling. He will also instruct you on light stretching exercises and cold therapy to use at home.
Once your pain has improved, Dr. Russ will decrease the frequency of treatments and begin using more deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy. In some cases he may use intersegmental traction. These steps will further help reduce muscle spasms, inflammation and help your body maintain proper spinal alignment to keep your pain from returning.
Dr. Russ carries a variety of doctor grade nutritional supplements including; Metagenics, Standard Process, Davinci and DC Labs. These nutritional supplements can supply your body with the vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients it needs to function at its highest level.
If you choose, you can take your body to the next level with preventative wellness care. This is a phase of care where you are no longer in pain but want to maintain wellness through regular chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Russ compares this to regular dental checkups that prevent tooth decay and gum disease or regular oil changes on your vehicle to prevent major engine damage. Regular chiropractic adjustments, good eating habits, nutritional supplementation and exercise can all help your body function at its peak and help prevent future pain and disease.
EXERCISES FOR HEALTHY LIVING
It’s no secret, stretching and strengthening exercises can help maintain a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Russ can provide you with exercises to help you feel stronger, have increased flexibility and feel better.
