At Paradise 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 Scottsdale office.
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. Kyle Palmer has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a treatment for bulging or herniated discs in the neck and lower back. It can also be used to treat sciatica, degnerative disc disease, and some failed back surgeries. It is a non-surgical computerized traction table that separates in the middle. A patient is strapped in the supine (lying on back) position; the distracted force is applied to relieve pressure on the spine that may be causing pain. This therapy is intended to create negative pressure on the spine so that the vertebrae are elongated; pressure is taken off the roots of the nerve, and a disc herniation may be pulled back into place. The amount of force is tailored for each patient. Each treatment lasts approximately 15 to 20 minutes and the typical duration of prescribed treatment is 10 to 20 sessions.
Massage therapy is intended to reduce stress and fatigue while improving circulation throughout soft tissues. There are a variety of different massage techniques. Swedish massage uses long, kneeding strokes on the muscles and moves the joints to increase flexibility. Deep tissue massage uses patterns of strokes and deep pressure on parts of the body where muscles are tight or knotted, focusing on the layers of deep muscle. In trigger point massage, therapists use a variety of strokes but applies deeper, more focused pressure on myofascial trigger points. These knots can cause symptoms elsewhere in the body. Pregnancy massage is practiced by positioning the mother's body with pillows and padding, allowing maximum comfort and safety for mother and baby. Pregnancy massage has been found to reduce stress, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, and relieve aches and pains in muscles and joints. It's a popular complementary therapy during pregnancy for back pain, when choices for pain relief, such as medication, are often limited. Our massage therapist, Dena Mercer, has been with our practice since December 2005. She has extensive training in all of the above massage techniques. Dena is in on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Please call to ask us about our promotional massage packages, which include discounts and incentives!
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them 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 by as much as 30-40%. 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 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.
