chiropractic care

why see a chiropractor?

Every day, our bodies are subjected to a number of stressors such as poor posture at work, long hours of driving, sitting at a computer, lack of rest and eating on the run. Over time, we may experience the consequences of a hectic lifestyle in the form of pain in our backs and joints as well as decreased energy and even disease. Unfortunately, in today’s world removing these stressors is often difficult. So instead it is essential that we maximize our body’s ability to adapt to the common stressors of everyday life. This is where chiropractic care can help.

Some people see a chiropractor to help relieve pain and discomfort, while others are looking for a way to improve their athletic performance, gain more energy, and thereby maximize their physical potential.

Dr. Carla Inoque offers rehabilitation and wellness solutions that incorporate chiropractic and physical therapy to decrease pain, increase strength and flexibility and reduce the risk of re-injury.

how chiropractic care can help

A chiropractor is able to analyze and correct any underlying structural imbalances in the spine and joints that have led to injury and pain. Correcting the structural imbalances may require adding motion to joints, releasing scar tissue in the surrounding muscles and providing a home exercise program to add stability to joints and muscles. In the end, improved balance can mean better coordination, less wear and tear on the joints, increased energy throughout the day and a quicker reaction time in sports.

what to expect at your first visit

Dr. Carla Inoque is a chiropractor who recognizes that every person’s body is unique in the way it manifests symptoms of imbalance. Whether you choose pain relief, injury prevention or improving your sports performance Dr. Inoque can help. Initially a complete history is taken to pinpoint the daily stressors and demands on the body. Then a postural assessment and thorough evaluation of the body’s joint and nervous system imbalances are conducted. A personalized treatment plan is then put together that takes into account the patient’s lifestyle, current condition and goals.

Follow – up visits:

On each visit, a mini structural assessment is conducted before and after treatment to ensure that balance is being restored and your goals are being achieved.
