In addition to chiropractic adjustments, treatment may include herbal medicine, acupuncture, and ultrasound therapy, as Dr. Mathes addresses your unique needs.
Adjustments – In order for your body to function at its best, your spine must be properly aligned. Your spine is composed of many small bones that house and protect the nerves in your body. If your spine is not properly aligned, it irritates these nerves, causing pain and dysfunction.
Dr. Mathes uses a highly specific, gentle, low force adjusting technique called Activator®. There is no twisting, no “cracking” sound, and muscles are not stressed. These adjustments are comfortable for patients of all ages.
Herbal medicine offers an alternative to expensive drugs and their side effects. Herbal medicine has been the primary care in Europe for over 100 years. With certification in Herbal Medicine, Dr. Mathes can provide the herbs that will best benefit your needs.
Acupuncture is an ancient art that has been used for healing for thousands of years. Dr. Mathes uses chiropractic acupuncture as an adjunct therapy to assist in the healing process.
Ultrasound Therapy – Ultrasound therapy reduces pain, swelling and inflammation, and so aids in the healing process. Dr. Mathes provides in-office ultrasound therapy.
Chiropractic and Children – From colicky babies to fast-growing youngsters, all children benefit from chiropractic care. Babies with colic will often sleep through the night pain-free after an adjustment. Chiropractic care can reduce the pain from ear infections without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractic is safe and effective health care for children of all ages, as well as adults.
