The Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors are licensed healthcare professionals who primarily concentrate on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of spinal disorders and other mechanical conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care places a strong emphasis on the body’s ability to heal itself without employing surgery, drugs, or other medical measures.

Patients often experience relief from a wide range of painful and dangerous symptoms by seeking quality chiropractic care. At Kentwood Family Chiropractic, we address countless health and wellness issues using a variety of approaches. Read more about some of our specific services below.

Modalities Offered

Spinal Manipulation & Adjustments

Spinal manipulation and adjustments involve applying controlled force to the spine’s joints to improve alignment and relieve pain. This foundational chiropractic treatment aims to enhance the body’s natural healing ability and improve overall function. It’s effective for treating a variety of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, and headaches.

Activator Method

The Activator Method utilizes a hand-held instrument to deliver precise chiropractic adjustments without the need for manual force. It’s designed for patients seeking a gentler alternative to traditional adjustments, offering effective relief for back pain, neck pain, and headaches. This method is especially suitable for individuals who are sensitive to traditional adjustments, including children and the elderly.

Stretching & Strengthening Exercises

Stretching and strengthening exercises complement chiropractic adjustments by improving flexibility, strengthening muscles, and stabilizing the spine. These personalized exercises are designed to support the body’s recovery and prevent future injuries. Patients receive guidance on performing these exercises safely at home to maximize their chiropractic care benefits.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) uses electrical impulses to stimulate muscle contractions, helping to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate healing. This therapy is beneficial for patients with muscle spasms, back pain, or injuries, promoting muscle tone and strength without stressing the joints. EMS is a supportive treatment that enhances the effects of chiropractic care.

Lumbar Distraction Decompression

Lumbar Distraction Decompression is a non-surgical technique that alleviates pressure on spinal discs and nerves, ideal for treating lower back pain, sciatica, and disc herniation. By gently stretching the spine, it helps herniated or bulging discs retract, encouraging healing and pain relief. This treatment offers a non-invasive alternative for those seeking relief from back conditions without surgery.
