At Integrative Chiropractic Pediatrics / Palisades Family Chiropractic we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer.
Care for newborns and infants is drastically different than what you may envision when you think about chiropractic care. Depending on the needs/problems of the child, Dr. Lisa will use very light pressure, stretching, cranial therapy and craniosacral techniques to reverse the effects of abnormal womb position, birth trauma or other subluxation causing factors to a child. Nutrition, sleeping positions, and activities of daily living are important factors incorporated into treatment as well.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Lisa has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises 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. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
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. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Lisa can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Spinal and postural evaluations can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. Posture is a window to the spine and it allows Dr. Lisa to see how the body has compensated for spinal restrictions and muscular imbalances. Determining the problems and developing a program to correct them is the key to spinal integrity and long term balance and stability of the body.
