The Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractors are licensed healthcare professionals who primarily concentrate on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of spinal disorders and other mechanical conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care places a strong emphasis on the body’s ability to heal itself without employing surgery, drugs, or other medical measures.
Patients often experience relief from a wide range of painful and dangerous symptoms by seeking quality chiropractic care. At River Edge Chiropractor, we address countless health and wellness issues using a variety of approaches. Read more about some of our specific services below.
The “classic” chiropractic treatment, manual adjustments are done by hand to perform a broad spectrum of coordinated contact movements. Manual adjustments may be used to address various patient health and wellness concerns. Applying direct pressure at specific points, we can dramatically improve the function of muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and other soft bodily tissues.
The Activator Method
This therapeutic approach requires the use of a specific hand-held tool called the “activator.” A spring-loaded, mechanical instrument, the activator aids in chiropractic adjustment by delivering a rapid, low-force impulse with extreme precision. An activator adjustment can accomplish many of the same benefits as a manual adjustment by improving the body’s alignment and helping with overall body function.
At our chiropractic practice, we specialize in the SacroOcciptial Technique and take a holistic approach to spinal health. We believe that the spine is the key to overall bodily function, and our goal is to optimize spinal alignment for better health and wellness. We work with patients of all ages, from infants to seniors, to address a range of issues including pain, stiffness, and other symptoms. Our team is led by Dr. Honig, who is a highly experienced SacroOccipttal Pediatrics Technique Practitioner and the only one in the state of New Jersey. We are committed to providing the highest quality care to all our patients and helping them achieve their health goals through safe, effective, and personalized treatment plans.
Our chiropractic practice offers the Webster Technique, a gentle and non-invasive method for balancing the pelvis and reducing tension in the surrounding muscles and ligaments. This technique helps improve fetal positioning, reduce the risk of difficult labor and delivery, and enhance overall maternal health and well-being. Our team is highly trained in this technique and has helped many expectant mothers find relief from back pain, sciatica, and other pregnancy-related discomforts. If you’re pregnant and looking for a safe and effective way to support your health and your growing baby, schedule a consultation with us today.
Flexion distraction is a chiropractic technique used to treat a variety of conditions, including disc herniations, sciatica, and spinal stenosis. The technique involves the use of a specially designed table that gently stretches and flexes the spine to decompress the discs and relieve pressure on the nerves. Flexion distraction is a safe and effective treatment option that can help reduce pain, improve mobility, and promote overall spinal health. At our chiropractic practice, we use flexion distraction along with other proven techniques to help our patients achieve optimal health and wellness.
There are many healthcare applications for ultrasound equipment, and chiropractic care is another! We employ therapeutic ultrasound therapy to relax muscles, alleviate inflammation, boost blood flow, speed the healing of injured tissue, and break down internal scar tissue that otherwise might limit mobility. Chiropractic ultrasound works by producing sound waves to produce vibrations that penetrate deep into the body to generate therapeutic heat.
Otherwise known as e-stim, electro-muscle stimulation uses clinical electrical equipment that produces pulses that replicate the signals emanated by the neurons of the human nervous system. By directing mild electrical currents to specific nerves, e-stim produces muscle contractions that improve blood flow and promote tissue repair. Electrical stimulation is a powerful therapy that has also been used to block pain receptors and even restore the natural motor function of stroke victims with nervous system paralysis.
In the wake of an injury or a surgical procedure, many people can benefit greatly from a targeted physical rehabilitation regimen. When patients come to us for rehabilitation, we will use a combination of adjustments and other modalities. For post-treatment care at home, we generally recommend a program of exercises to help in recovery from physical trauma and to rebuild former mobility and range of movement.
Whether part of a prescribed physical rehabilitation program or for general preventative or restorative purposes, chiropractic exercises can be powerful complements to regular chiropractic office visits. The pelvic tilt and the supine bridge are just a couple of exercises that virtually anyone can do at home to improve their overall health and wellness. When you come to us for treatment, corrective exercises may be one way that your treatment continues outside of our office!
Pregnancy & Pediatric Care
When provided by a chiropractor with proper specialized training, chiropractic care has proven to be safe and effective for pregnant women as well as babies and young children. During pregnancy, chiropractic care has proven extremely helpful in the management of back, hip, and joint pain that goes hand in hand with carrying the extra weight of a baby. Pediatric chiropractic care includes treating young people for conditions that include headaches, sports injuries, poor immune response, allergies, asthma, ear pain, colic, sleep disturbances, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
