At Taunton Chiropractic and Health Centre, we believe in an integrated approach to treatment. Your treatment plan may combine various disciplines in the appropriate combinations for optimal results.
Acupuncture is a therapeutic method used to encourage natural healing, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of the affected areas of the body. Acupuncture is both safe and effective – often successfully used as an alternative to medications and even surgery.
This technique is an innovative form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that targets problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Graston Technique uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat problem areas, thereby returning full range of motion and decreasing pain.
Since your feet support your entire body weight, the slightest misalignment of the muscles and bones can cause many different problems. Custom orthotics are medical appliances made to correct individual foot imbalances. Orthotics work on the feet similarly to the way that braces work on the teeth – by exerting gentle, consistent pressure to bring foot muscles and bones back into alignment.
Med-X Laser Therapy provides light energy to your body's cells to increase their function and stimulate your body's natural healing process - safely and easily. There are no known side effects. For some conditions this innovative, therapeutic healing method often eliminates the need to painful, debilitating surgeries and drug therapies. Med-X Laser therapy can effectivetly treat: head/neck/back pain, arthritis (osteo and rheumatoid), post-surgical recovery, muscle strains, joint sprains, repetitive strain (Carpal Tunnel and Tennis Elbow), and tendonitis.
Shockwave therapy involves application of shock waves that carries high energy to pain points within the body. These short-bursts of energy or pulses accelerate the healing process in the body by both;
Enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue and breaking down scar tissue and adhesion's. The pulses occur in short bursts of time creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The energy from the burst of the bubble penetrates tissue and stimulates cells that are responsible for tissue healing.
