We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. 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 Lafayette chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Jennifer Weida has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS) percussion therapy is different than other soft tissue techniques. The DMS device uses deep, rapid, short-duration vibration to stimulate soft tissue and accelerate the growth and repair of tissues. The device has been proven effective at improving circulation, reducing pain, improving tissue regeneration, releasing trigger points, decreasing lactic acid build-up, breaking up soft tissue adhesions, and increasing lymphatic flow and range of motion and function. It also provides a gentle stretch to the muscles and connective tissues to loosen tight muscles and stimulate weak ones, addressing imbalances in the body and improving posture and movement, which improves responsiveness and performance.
Common Injuries & Conditions:
- Muscle Soreness
- Shin Splints
- Muscle Spasms & Cramps
- TMJ Syndrome
- Herniated or Bulging Discs
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Frozen Shoulder
Percussive massage can expedite the rehabilitation process of muscles that have been injured due to trauma, surgery or disease. The contractions caused by percussive massage help to strengthen muscles of individuals who may not be able to participate in physical therapy. Percussive massage can be used in patients with partial or full paralysis. The muscle contractions caused by percussive massage stimulate the muscles and prevents non-use atrophy while also improving reflex responses in which the nerves respond to stimulation.
Recent studies have shown that percussive massage causes contractions that are up to 30 times more powerful than normal voluntary contractions. This leads to enhanced muscle strength and improved muscle recovery. Percussive stimulation also improves muscle tone and balance, relieving muscular tightness and reducing the physical stress placed on bones and joints. It increases blood circulation to bring more oxygen and nutrients into the muscle, and reduces muscle fatigue and soreness.
At Chiropractic Solutions, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. 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 from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself 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. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition 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. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals 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? At our Lafayette chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Jennifer Weida can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Lafayette community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 765-838-3489 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
