Our treatment programs, individually designed and tailored to fit each patient’s specific needs, combine chiropractic adjustments, Active Release Techniques®, and therapeutic massage to restore you to the most functional and optimal health possible.
“Our center is committed to treating your spinal sports & orthopedic injuries naturally without the use of drugs or surgery.” Dr. Barry Arvidson
There are three phases of care you can experience at Arvidson Chiropractic:
- Relief Care to Eliminate Pain
- Rehabilitative Care
- Preventive and Wellness Care through follow-up Treatment
It is important to understand the stages of chiropractic care because they are uniquely relative to those of other health-care disciplines. Because chiropractic addresses core physiological and biomechanical aspects of the body, the process to correct problems without drugs or surgery can take some time. Some conditions can be treated in a few visits, while others may take longer.
MANUAL ADJUSTMENTS/ MANIPULATION– correct subluxations (misalignment’s) and fixations (reduced joint motion) of the spine which may cause “pinched”, irritated, or inflamed nerves.
ACTIVATOR – A low force adjustment technique to help restore normal joint motion with comfort.
ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUES® – A manual soft tissue technique to break down adhesion working with problems of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE – We teach our patients special exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. This enhances the treatment process and helps maintain healing benefits, as well as reducing the likelihood of future problems.
LIFESTYLE ADVICE – We often find it helpful to “coach” our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most.
