TYPES OF DISORDERS TREATED
~~Patients receive advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques and brain based therapies designed to relieve pain, increase range of motion and improve function. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. McDuff has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, balance disorders and other related conditions originating from the spine and central nervous system. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
~~At McDuff Chiropractic Center, patients are taught how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body and brain which may be causing pain and/or loss of function and stability. Many of these corrective exercises, stretches and brain based therapies can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
~~Many patients seek help from Dr. McDuff for a specific pain condition such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While Dr. McDuff will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, it is often helpful to "coach" patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent you from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. Dr. McDuff recognizes that every single patient is a whole person, and uses his expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
~~What does nutrition and functional medicine have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Nutritional counseling can assist a patient on their 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? Through the clinical evaluations at this clinic, patients can be provided with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
