Chiropractic care is an effective means of achieving natural health and healing for a wide range of conditions. As conditions are as unique as the individuals living with them, any treatment plan needs to be built to meet their personalized needs. At Lakewood Ranch Chiropractic in Bradenton, we believe in providing a holistic, tailored approach to everyone we see, including children and pregnant women. To provide such a personalized approach, Dr. Nichols specializes in a variety of treatment options and techniques, including the following.
Realigning the spine is the basis of chiropractic care. As you go through life’s daily bumps and bruises – some of which are more severe than others – the joints and discs of the spine can be thrown out of alignment. As misalignment can lead to a wide range of symptoms, realignment must be at the heart of the healing process.
Physical Therapy and Corrective Exercises
The body was intended to function in a specific way, but injuries and weakness can prevent it from doing so. Through targeted stretches and exercise, you can not only speed up your road to recovery but also reduce pain, restore mobility, and prevent future injuries.
At times, a disc that is meant to act as a cushion for your spinal joints can be compressed and slip out of its proper place. This can put unnecessary pressure on the nerves, muscles, joints, and ligaments. Spinal decompression is a treatment through which the spine is stretched gently, allowing the disc to be pulled back into place.
Massage therapy can help speed up your healing time by removing obstructions and improving blood flow to the damaged area. It is also effective at helping to relieve pain, making it easy for you to function in everyday life.
Lifestyle and Nutritional Counseling
Holistic care is about more than addressing the source of pain. It is also designed to address the cause of it and help you make decisions that keep your body in optimal health. This can include making dietary, exercise, and other lifestyle changes. Dr. Nichols is happy to guide you through these changes and more.
