Prenatal and Pediatric Specific Care
Proper nervous system and spinal function is crucial to the development of your baby and essential to the well-being and comfort of mom. The effects of chiropractic care during pregnancy are far-reaching and extend way beyond treating pain, they optimize the baby's and mom's potential to have a comfortable pregnancy and postpartum healthy lifestyle.
By ensuring that the neuro-biomechanics of the pelvis and spine are in proper alignment and motion, chiropractic care helps to ensure that the developing baby has plenty of room to grow within the womb. By maintaining this proper alignment and motion throughout pregnancy, chiropractic care can also improve the ability of the expecting mother to have a safe and natural birth process – which is something that is extremely vital to the health of both mom and baby.
Most children will experience their first subluxation (neuro-biomechanical alteration in the spine which is hindering their nervous system from communicating properly to their entire body) at birth. Birthing trauma is no joke. Because of this, the 3 doctors at Global Health believe it is vital to get them checked early in their life so that they may grow and thrive and be 100% connected to themselves and their environment, allowing them to truly reach their full potential.
A.M.I.T. (Advanced Muscle Integration Technique)®
Dr. Tracy is a Certified AMIT Specialist. The AMIT system of analysis performs a functional evaluation of 720 muscles in the body. Treatment follows to restore the injured or affected area.
In simple terms, when a muscle is over stressed beyond its ability to handle a load, the tissue either tears or is neurologically inhibited. This condition is defined as either “Arthrogenic Muscle Inhibition” (AMI) or “Neuro-Proprioceptive Inhibition” (NPI). AMI is caused when the joint is injured or inflamed. NPI is caused when a muscle or connective tissue is injured.
Massage therapy and chiropractic care are both fantastic for relieving pain, restoring mobility, and increasing overall health. When used together, these compatible therapies extend the health and wellness benefits of each service, benefiting the patient in a variety of ways. Massage therapy deals with the soft tissues, where chiropractic focuses on the nervous system, the musculoskeletal structure, and hard tissues. Knowing how these services work together can greatly improve your musculoskeletal function, thus improving your overall health and optimizing your performance.Using a variety of massage techniques, therapeutic massage improves circulation, decreases muscle tension and stiffness, and promotes relaxation. Increasing circulation delivers oxygen and nutrients that stimulate healthy muscle function, which promotes healing, reduces pain, and can prevent future injuries.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a Non-Surgical treatment of neck and low back conditions performed on a specially designed table in a face up, face down or side lying position. Clinical consideration and your comfort are used in deciding which position will be best for you. We may begin in one position but in later sessions it may be necessary to change positions. You will remain fully dressed during the treatment though we recommend wearing loose fitting clothes, and removal of your belt and objects from your pockets.
You will be comfortably positioned on the table and fitted with a wrap-around harness. This restraint is what allows the unloading of the spine and discs by the traction motor. Your position on the table, the harness, and angle of the gentle distraction allows for accurate and focused treatment to the affected disc. Once comfortable on the DTS the computer controlled traction device is programmed to deliver a gentle stretching force to the spinal vertebra. This force is delivered directly to the harness system. The DTS system applies the gentle force then releases it approximately every minute throughout the session. The total treatment time is usually less than 20 minutes and often just 10 minutes initially. Most patients report simply feeling a subtle and gentle stretching at their lower back or around their hips. Since DTS Therapy is a comfort-based procedure, patients usually report a sense of relief and relaxation during the session. Many patients even fall to sleep.
Low Level Laser Therapy
Low Level Laser Therapy (3LT™), commonly known as LLLT, is a form of phototherapy which involves the application of low power coherent light to injuries and lesions to stimulate healing. Low Level Laser Therapy (3LT™) is used to increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair, resolve inflammation, and give pain relief. Erchonia Medical is one of the leading research companies on lasers and they are the developer of 3LT™ technology. Cold laser therapy is a major advancement in healing and is rewriting the medical books on what is possible for chronic injuries, pain management, neurological impairment, and facilitating the healing process in disease conditions.
