Techniques at Advanced Chiropractic Wellness of Frankfurt
Activator Method:The Activator Method is one of the most widely researched chiropractic adjustment techniques. It is the only instrument adjustment technique with clinical trials supporting the technique’s effectiveness. This gentle, low-force adjustment technique provides a controlled thrust that is comfortable for patients and highly effective. Dr. Stratton has received special training in Activator chiropractic adjustments for gentle, low-force spinal adjustments. By restoring correct alignment to the spine, Activator adjustments help to unlock the body’s ability to naturally heal itself from within.
Nutrition Counseling: For patients who are unsure of where to begin, nutrition counseling is especially beneficial. Our chiropractor provides actionable, no-nonsense advice and customized dietary recommendations to meet a patient’s specific health needs. Small dietary adjustments can make a big difference for overall health. Shifting eating habits to emphasize whole foods, organic fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and unprocessed foods support the body’s health from within. An anti-inflammatory diet can also help reduce inflammation and swelling following an injury.
Acupuncture: Our contemporary acupuncture treatments are based on the Ancient Chinese healing technique. According to the Ancient Chinese, acupuncture treatments balanced the body’s energy (known as the “qi”) that flowed along the body’s energy pathways (known as ‘meridians’). Imbalances in the qi or blockages in the energy pathways led to illness. Thin, sterilized needles inserted at specific pressure points along the body correspond with the meridians. Today, contemporary science understands that these pressure points are linked to the central nervous system; activating these points produces physiological changes in the body including an increase in endorphin levels for natural pain relief. Research show acupuncture treatments are beneficial for a number of pain conditions and rehabilitation needs including back and neck pain, headaches and migraines, nausea, anxiety, and stress.
Applied Kinesiology: This innovative pain management and injury rehabilitation technique is beneficial for many common sports injuries, including ankle injuries, knee injuries and knee pain, IT band pain, sciatica pain, rotator cuff injuries, tennis elbow and TMJ. Our chiropractor integrates applied kinesiology treatments with chiropractic adjustments for enhanced injury rehabilitation following sports injuries, auto accident injuries and workplace injuries.
From pain management to injury rehabilitation, chiropractic care can help your body heal faster while reducing the risk for future injuries, pain and health problems. Schedule an appointment with our chiropractor today to learn more!
