East West Chiropractic has developed a comprehensive conservative protocol for the treatment of spinal disc bulges and herniations. 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. Chris Deveau has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Cox Flexion Distraction/Saunders Decompression
Cox Technique is rich in bio-mechanical research used in the treatment of spine and disc issues. The Cox table and technique are the primary treatments utilized by the doctors in our office.
To complement and enhance the healing effects of the chiropractic manipulative treatment, we at East West Chiropractic also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
Cold Laser, Ultrasound, Interferential Electrical Muscle Stimulation, Mechanical Traction, and Moist Heat Therapy
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.
Physical Therapy is used in the evaluation and treatment of physical dysfunction involving the muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones and fascias due to injury, disease, disability or condition. Depending on the patient's unique individual diagnosis and needs, a p.t. treatment plan may include strength and mobility training, manual therapy, joint mobilizations, along with other modalities. EWC is fortunate to be able to offer our patients an on-staff certified physical therapist right here in our office.
Pulse Electromagnetic Field Therapy
Also known as PEMF, Pulse Electromagnetic Field Cellular Exercise is a therapy in which electromagnetic fields reach deep inside your body to replenish the energy in low voltage cells. As a cell looses its energy it becomes unhealthy and unhealthy cells result in pain and disease. With the recharging of the cells, waste is pumped out and nutrients and oxygen are absorbed, restoring your body to its natural state of healthy balance. East West Chiropractic is one of the only local providers of PEMF Therapy and our patients have seen tremendous results.
Acupuncture is a 3,000-year-old healing practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is a safe and effective way of treating a number of conditions such as, allergies, arthritis, depression, headache, back & neck pain, hypertension, nausea and vomiting, anxiety, insomnia and joint pain. By inserting a fine, sterile needle into specific acupuncture points or acupoints, these areas become stimulated thus triggering a healing response. Our bodies' energy flows along specific pathways known as meridians and when they become blocked our bodies become unbalanced. Acupuncture clears these pathways restoring natural flow, balance and health.
Lifestyle Advice /Stress Reduction
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. We also realize that stress is the reason for 70% of all doctors visits and teach patients how to lower their stress score. 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.
Corrective/Core Stability Exercise
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen the core muscles 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 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? Dr. Deveau and his team 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 community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
