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 a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Kenneth Trussell has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment. He is proficient in hands on manual adjusting, as well as, gentle lower force instrument adjustments.
From a Traditional Chinese Medicine prospective, Acupuncture relieves stiffness and pain by increasing circulation of Blood and Qi. From a more Traditional Western Medicine prospective, Acupuncture is effective because it stimulates the body to produce a hormone, enzyme, or neurotransmitter that creates a physiologic effect in the body. Acupuncture is effective in relieving pain because it has anesthetic properties. It improves flexibility, mobility, reduces inflammation, and eliminates muscle spasms by increasing blood supply to tendons, ligaments and muscles. Acupuncture influences the nervous system by controlling and connecting neuro-physiological relationships between all body systems by directing bio-electrical impulses through the nerve fibers.
This can be performed with needles or as laser acupuncture. Laser acupuncture is a healing technique that stimulates acupuncture points with low intensity "cold" lasers emitting infra-red light placed on or over affected areas and acupoints.For more information about Acupuncture click here.
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.
Frequency Specific Microcurrent
Frequency Specific Microcurrent is a set of treatment protocols developed by Dr. Carol McMakin based on electromagnetic therapies used by medical doctors and osteopathic doctors in the early 1900's. These physicians were using devices that delivered frequencies on two channels. One channel was thought to neutralize a specific condition or pathology and the other channel was thought to target a specific tissue or body part. Animal research has shown Microcurrent to increase ATP production by 500%. ATP is the substance every cell in your body uses for energy. The current has also been shown to increase the speed of waste product removal from the cells and increase the rate of amino acid (protein building blocks) transport into the cell by 70%. The implication of increased energy, increased protein building blocks, and reduced metabolized waste is accelerated healing and improved function. For more information on FSM click here.
A healing technique that stimulates tissues with low intensity "cold" lasers emitting infra-red laser light placed on or over injured or affected areas. It differs from laser surgery, which utilizes "hot" lasers. It is usually used to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate wound healing. It works through a process called photobiostimulation where photochemical and photophysical changes occur in the tissues even down to a cellular level.Lasers can also be used to stimulate acupuncture points to perform a "needleless" form of acupuncture.
To complement and enhance the healing effects of Dr.Trussell's specific chiropractic manipulative treatment, our office also provides the following procedures:
- Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
- Spinal decompression / Traction
- Super pulsed infrared laser
- Pulsed radio frequency diathermy
- Work hardening rehabilitation program
Rehab & Exercises
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises 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. 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 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? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Kenneth Trussell as a Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Internists has extensive nutritional training and can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
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 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 our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
