My adjustment methods are wide and vary depending on what would be more effective for your condition. This encompasses the “classic” and time proven physical adjustment to the milder, gentler, non osseous methods. I also perform extremity adjustments, cranial therapy and a variety of muscle techniques to get you out of pain and functioning normally again as quickly as possible.
Nutritional therapy is also utilized for supporting all sides of the triangle as shown below. I use whole food supplements and only the best herbs from around the world.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Throughout one’s pregnancy, there may be pain and/or discomfort in the back and neck due to the ligaments and joints loosening up. Utilize chiropractic care to help realign your spinal cord and the ligaments and muscles that surround it to lessen pain and promote health throughout your pregnancy and during birth.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently so that they don’t aggravate their particular health challenge. We also provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient ́s return to optimal health. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle. Randy Schaetzke can provide a structured lifestyle and/or nutritional program based on your individual needs. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborative effort between our professionals and our patients.
We offer an alternative medicine therapy called myofascial release that is used for treating skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Myofascial release therapy is a hands-on treatment that utilizes gentle, sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulates the stretch reflex in muscles.
Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves above the range of human hearing to interact with tissues in the body that are either modified or destroyed. It creates a deep heat and increases the blood flow to the area being treated to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation.
The use of massage for trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries. Pressure is applied to a trigger point long enough to release and relax the muscle. This increases blood flow to the muscle to allow normalization and bring it back to a health state.
