|At Hellenbrand Rabideaux 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 office.
Chiropractic is a health care profession based on the scientific fact that the nervous system controls and regulates all functions of life by controlling every cell tissue and organ of the body. Interference with the nervous system (subluxation) due to structural dysfunction (misalignment of vertebrae) can cause impairment of functions both seen and unseen throughout the body. When the nervous system is functioning at peak capacity, the human body has more energy, greater resistance to disease and less need for pain. Only chiropractic examinations can detect such subluxations and only chiropractic adjustments can reduce their effect the nervous system to unlock the body’s natural self-healing ability to restore optimal function and health naturally and safely without the use of medication or surgery.
Chiropractic adjusting techniques offered:
-Extremity adjusting (arms, legs, hands and feet)
Dry needling is a treatment that helps treat muscle pain and soreness by placing small thin needles into specific trigger points or “knots” in order to correct movement impairments and relieve pain. This treatment is called “dry” needling because unlike shots at the doctor, no fluid is injected into the body through the needle.
The needle only remains in your skin for a short period of time – anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes, depending on the patient’s need, the severity of the pain, and other variables.
On Site Testing
The Insight Discovery Subluxation Station is a noninvasive series of tests which allows chiropractors to scan their patient’s neurospinal health. These scans easily and accurately identify areas of nervous system interference (subluxations) that may be preventing one’s nervous system from operating efficiently. The Insight Discovery Subluxation Station has been certified by The Space Foundation, a non-profit agency founded in cooperation with NASA.
On site x-rays are also available if needed to further assess one’s condition.
When necessary, we educate our patients on a special stretching and exercise program designed just for them to aid in their progression to optimal health and wellness. These programs can be performed in the comfort of their own home. We also offer electrical muscle stimulation in our office to aid in recovery.
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? We can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
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 patient is a whole person, and to help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
