Chiropractic Services in Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, and Sarasota

Chiropractic Adjustments: This is where it all starts. Re-align your body so that your movement is more efficient and less tearing and causes less wear on your joints and ligaments. Improve circulation throughout your body.

Reduce or eliminate pain: Finally get relief from that injury or repetitive stress that has bothered you for years. Feel more comfortable in your own body. Experience improved health and a strengthened immune system. Feel great. And that’s just the beginning!

Nutritional Counseling:  Dr. Nichols will help you learn how the vitamins, supplements, and nutrients in your body interact with each other.  Proper nutrition can help you heal more quickly, think more clearly, achieve greater focus, and even lose weight.

Corrective Exercises: Corrective exercise help your body move the way it should so that you feel less pain, and your body heals more quickly. These exercises also help you avoid future injuries. Spinal and postural screenings factor in as well and may catch problems where your family doctor has not.

Lifestyle Advice: We take a whole body, whole person, and whole life approach to your health. Your work ergonomics, your nutrition, your hobbies, and general living conditions are all taken into consideration. Dr. Nichols or a health care partner will then recommend lifestyle changes when needed--and these changes can change your life! 

Massage Therapy: Massage therapy can complement the work your chiropractor does in many ways. Perhaps the most important way is by improving oxygenated blood flow to the injured area, which helps speed up healing. Massage therapy is important for pain management as well.

Physiotherapy: When it comes to your health and pain treatment, we use a number of natural, non-invasive techniques and technologies. Moist heat therapy, cryotherapy, mechanical traction, paraffin baths, ultrasound treatments, and electrical muscle stimulation are some of our main alternative treatment types.
