At Hambrick Chiropractic, we specialize in two techniques.
The Advanced Orthogonal Technique specifically detects and corrects subluxations of the upper cervical spine, most specifically, the first bone in the spine called the Atlas or C1.
However, subluxations can occur anywhere there is a vertebra with spinal nerves surrounding it, and misalignments can occur anywhere there is a joint (knees, shoulders, feet, hands, etc.).
To address this, we also incorporate Activator Methods®.
Both procedures utilize pre and post evaluations so that adjustments are never administered unnecessarily, and both are performed with instruments that allow us to be more precise, gentle and consistent than we could ever be with our hands alone.
You will be pleased with how we provide relief and restore health without any popping, twisting, turning or cracking of your joints.
Chiropractic may help with some of the symptoms associated with the following conditions:
- Trigeminal Neuralgia
- Neck Pain
- Cervical Headaches
- Herniated Discs
- Back Pain
PEMF stands for Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields, which are widely used to improve circulation and cell metabolism. Pulsed electromagnetic fields are not the same thing as static, or non-moving magnetic fields, which are generally unable to deeply penetrate the body. A pulsed electromagnetic field, however, is quite dynamic, and able to penetrate all the way through the body, creating a cascade of effects within the body.
It is important to distinguish between the electromagnetic fields used for therapeutic purposes, and other man-made electromagnetic fields from power lines, microwave ovens, cell phones, etc., which can cause damage to our bodies. The PEMF therapy we recommend is a safe, natural electromagnetic field, and is complementary to the chemistry and functions of the body.
You have over 75 trillion cells in your body. Cells are the basic building blocks of all living things. They provide structure for the body, take in nutrients from food, convert those nutrients into energy, and carry out specialized functions.
PEMF increases cellular membrane permeability. This allows better circulation of oxygen and nutrients into your cells. Additionally, PEMF helps eliminate carbon dioxide and waste product out of the cells.
PEMF may assist in reducing pain and inflammation, the stimulation of tissue healing and the strengthening of bones.
PEMF therapy may help with some of the symptoms associated with the following conditions:
- High blood pressure
- Damage and diseased tissue
- Pain, swelling and inflammation
- Torn tendons
- Fractured bones
Spinal Decompression Therapy
Nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy, stretches and relaxes the spine intermittently in a controlled manner. This process creates a negative intradiscal pressure (pressure within the disc itself), which pulls herniated or bulging disc material back into the disc space and promotes the passage of healing nutrients, into the disc and fosters a better healing environment. The process also provides relief to compressed and inflamed joints of the spine that are not necessarily effected by a bulging or herniating a disc.
Conditions Commonly Treated:
- Lower & Upper Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Herniated or Bulging Disc
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Sciatica (leg pain)
- Spinal Stenosis
- Failed Back Surgery
- Facet Syndrome
- Arthritis and more
MLS® Laser Therapy
MLS Laser Therapy uses specific wavelengths of light that have a strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema effect on tissues that are exposed to the laser.
Painful conditions accompanied by swelling or inflammation benefit from this technology.
Natural Foot Care
Your feet are your foundation. Each foot is home to thousands of nerve endings and the information they receive and pass on to the rest of the body is extraordinary.
When your foot feels the ground, there are thousands of touch receptors in the nerve endings giving feedback to the rest of the entire nervous system.
Since your nervous system runs your entire body, any foot impairment, dysfunction, injury, pain, or improper footwear can not only hinder things such as your lower leg function and balance directly, but also your entire health.
This is why Dr. McClanahan, an Oregon podiatrist and inventor of Correct Toes, says most people do not have a foot care problem, but a foot wear problem.
Functional Health & Wellness Evaluation
We offer nutritional counseling using a number of tools to help evaluate your nutritional deficiencies.
ZYTO scan. ZYTO is an electro-dermal screening tool that utilizes Galvanic Skin Response to determine an overall state of health and wellness.
Meridian Autonomic Testing. This is an energetic testing system utilizing acupuncture meridian points to determine nutritional deficiencies and system disfunction.
Smart Pulse HRV. Smart Pulse uses heart rate variability to determine not only the integrity of your heart and vessels, but also the health of your autonomic nervous system, the part of your nervous system responsible for organ function, including heart health.
Functional Blood Chemistry. Functional blood chemistry analysis uses your lab tests to evaluate nutritional deficiencies and the supplemental nutrition that will bring your health back into balance.
We offer several nutritional products for sale including products produced by American Nutriceuticals for specific conditions, as well as general dietary supplementation products from Standard Process.
