We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing Chiropractic Biophysics technique. The style of adjustments we use is safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. We have very gentle adjusting techniques for babies and children, including the Activator and Impulse adjusting instruments. For pregnant women, there are special techniques utilized, including Webster and Bagnell techniques.
At Alterman & Johnson Family Chiropractors, we teach our patients how to perform special exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be contributing to subluxation patterns. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. Targeted corrective exercises and stretches from doctors will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our doctors to address a specific symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our doctors will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid, or do differently, to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges, or undoing what the doctors are trying to do. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
"I was a little bit skeptical about taking my newborn son to a chiropractor, but he was four weeks old and extremely colicky (I never experienced colic with my first son) so I was desperate to try anything! After only a few adjustments, he stopped screaming uncontrollably every night and he was sleeping for 6-7 hours straight! He's now 9 weeks old and the happiest baby! I am so thankful that Dr. Alterman was recommended to me. I just wish I had seen her myself during my super uncomfortable pregnancy!"
