According to Chinese Medicine, energy in our bodies flow through channels called Meridians. This energy called Qi, pronounced as “chee”, can get blocked and out of balance, leading to illness. These blockages can be caused by external factors (such as cold, damp weather, physical trauma, etc.) or internal factors (such as stress, unhealthy diets, etc.). The very fine acupuncture needles placed on identified points, assist to unblock the Qi and bring us back to balance. There is no western medical explanation for Qi; however, there is over 5,000 years of empirical evidence proving the effectiveness of acupuncture.
Using extremely accurate computer technology and the most current advances in chiropractic techniques we constantly deliver phenomenal results. We use the Activator Methods in our Chiropractic Care. Activator uses precision instrument adjusting of the spine – no forceful, cracking motions are used – to improve nervous system function and the body’s ability to heal. This results in elimination of pain and symptoms, and a healthier, longer life.
Chiropractors focus on subluxation, a change in joint function or alignment that is a main cause of neck and back pain. They treat these problems with hands-on therapy which involves gentle manipulation, applied pressure, soft tissue mobilization and manual mobilization of the vertebrae and other joints. All treatments are designed to meet the individual needs of each patient.
Along with specialized chiropractic treatment, Dr. Eickhoff will provide you with rehabilitation exercises, advice on posture and stress management, and nutritional advice. The most important aspect of chiropractic care is the comprehensive approach to treatment and management of a patient’s unique condition.
