CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT

The adjustment is a quick, yet gentle procedure applied by hand, or with a tool (such as an Activator) to an affected joint. Chiropractic adjustments help to free our bodies from joint restrictions, fibrous adhesions, inflammation, spinal nerve irritation, and bulging discs. These adjustments are painless and serve to rewire the nervous system to promote healing and optimal function. Chiropractic doctors are the only health care professionals trained to deliver the chiropractic adjustment, which takes years of specialized study to perfect.

 

CRYOTHERAPY

In the acute phase of healing, cold packs are utilized to decrease inflammation and desensitize an affected area. See related blog post on “Heat vs. Cold” for more information

 

Cranial Sacral Therapy

Cranial sacral therapy is a gentle, noninvasive form of bodywork that addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. The goal is to release tension and restore motion in those areas which alleviates stress and pain.
Cranial sacral therapy seeks to restore the natural position of the bones and can decrease stress from chronic injuries as well as provide relief from migraine headaches, neck and back pain, temporomandibular joint disorder (the inflammation of the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull) and more.

 

KINESIO TAPING

Kinesio® Taping Method is a great therapeutic tool that can help while you are recovering from a sports injury and get you back in the game quicker. Kinesio® Tex Tape provides support for muscles and tendons, helps to prevent over-contraction of muscles, and also helps to reduce inflammation and swelling. Ask Dr. Seyhoon for more information, or if you would like a complimentary demonstration.

 

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

MFR (Myofascial Release ) is a type of deep, intense manual therapy which is used to break up adhesions, muscle spasms, and tension knots by working with and against the grain of the muscle while the patient actively stretches the same muscle. Unlike traditional massage, it is not meant to be soothing, but rather therapeutic.

 

NUTRITIONAL CONSULTATION

Most Americans are not getting adequate nutrition that the body requires for minimal function, let alone optimal function. Moreover, they are not eating the proper ratio of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats (the Food Pyramid Chart has led us astray), which leaves most of us overwhelmed and discouraged. The quality and quantity of foods we are consuming is resulting in greater risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other degenerative diseases that are ultimately preventative. We conduct in-depth, extensive nutritional counseling sessions for our patients who seek this type of advice. We work together to develop a plan for achieving your health goals and restoring your body to proper function and then beyond. Note: this service is included in Wellness Coaching.

 

PEDIATRICS & PREGNANCY

During pregnancy, many women experience musculoskeletal discomfort that can be relieved safely and effectively by chiropractic methods. Dr. Seyhoon is trained in treating children and pregnant women with back pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel, pubic symphysis disorder, premature contractions, breech turning, headaches, and back labor. Her mentor, Dr. Caroline Long, is renowned in Houston, Texas in the field of Chiropractic Pediatrics and Pregnancy, where Dr. Seyhoon trained for two years.

PROPRIOCEPTIVE & NEUROMUSCULAR RE-EDUCATION

Neuromuscular re-education is a specialized kind of proprioceptive training to help your nervous system coordinate its function, restore balance, and improve strength. Note that speed, strength and agility are a neurological phenomenon, so results are only achieved when the nerves are functioning efficiently. NMR sessions are 30 minutes and may include the use of mat exercises, therabands, physioballs, free weights, foam rollers and balance boards to help improve strength, stamina, flexibility, and balance.

 

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY

Also known as ischemic compression, trigger point therapy involves pressure applied to a muscle “knot” which has caused the muscle to be starved of its blood supply. Once the pressure is released, fresh blood flows quickly through the muscle and pushes out any tension, adhesions, or toxins.
