Chiropractic care addresses the entire body and enhances the patient’s ability to move, think, and perform.
Adjustments help the body function properly by restoring appropriate joint movement and therefore decreasing pain. Adjustments also increase proprioception, this allows the brain to perceive where the body is in space and provide proper feedback.
Acupuncture is a therapeutic technique that involves inserting thin needles into specific points across the body. This encourages the brain’s release of pain relieving chemicals, such as endorphins and endomorphine, to ease pain, discomfort, and to promote healing.
Studies have shown great results in the use of acupuncture to treat a multitude of conditions ranging from musculoskeletal complaints (ex. Back pain, neck pain) to digestive issues (ex. Bloating, IBS) and mental health (ex. Stress, anxiety, depression).
Round cups are placed on particular areas of the body and a suction is created to decompress muscles and connective tissue. This, in effect, relaxes muscles, improves blood circulation, activates the lymphatic system, and calms the nervous system.
"I think it's important to have a chiropractor who understands your goals as an individual, and Dr. Runyan does just that. She works hard to bring you the best care possible so that you can be free from pain, and get back to the things you love as soon as possible. I always appreciate the ability to explain what is going on so that I understand why I'm hurting, and what I need to do to prevent it from happening again. Thanks doc!"
