At Ballston Chiropractic and Acupuncture, 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 Arlington 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. BCA uses low force techniques when needed such as flexion-distraction which great for releiving pressures on low back disc- nerve complexes.
Ballston Chiropractic and Acupuncture uses this relatively painless, natural technique to promote health and decrease pain. Works great in conjunction with cupping or chiropractic adjustment.
Individual 1 hour massage sessions or massage packages available. Please call office to inquire about rates and scheduling.
Active Release Technique
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly with ART. ART treats overused/abnormal tissues by increasing blood flow and restoring proper tissue movement/function.
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)
Radial pressure waves help offer a non invasive treatment solution to long term insertion and soft tissue pathologies. Local treatment in the affected area will help support and reset the healing pattern. Physical effects of Radial pressure waves, pain reduction and increased blood circulation.
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 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.
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?
