At Sunset Hills 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 in our St. Louis office.
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 Doctors of Chiropractic, our treating physicians have had years of training and experience in spinal adjustments. Some of the common techniques utilized at Sunset Hills Chiropractic are Diversified, Thompson, Logan Basic, and Activator techniques.
Non Surgical Spinal Decompression
Spinal Decompression is a non surgical conservative treatment for patients who suffer with low back and neck problems. This treatment slowly lengthens or releases pressure in the spine through repetitive movements. The table pulls and releases, creating a pressure change within the invertebral disc, surrounding soft tissue and joints. Talk to your doctor today to find out if Spinal Decompression is right for you!
Acupuncture is known for its role in pain relief and has had success in managing both acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain, including but not limiting to: TMJ Disorders, nerve entrapment and muscle spasms and strain. Western Medicine has sought to explain acupuncture by using the gate theory of pain and stimulation of the central nervous system to release natural opiates, and as such, acupuncture has also found a role in analgesics. Acupuncture has also been used in conjunction with other therapies to treat a broad array of other health concerns such as: infertility, dysmennorrhea, allergic rhinitis, hemorrhoids, substance abuse disorders, anxiety and depression, and many other health conditions.
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 & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" 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%. 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 of our patients is unique in their own body and our goal is to help them reach true health and wellness.
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? The treating physicians at Sunset Hills Chiropractic can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
