We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and   expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Joseph Sheppard has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
 


 Massage Therapy

Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of therapy include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.


 Corrective Exercises

We teach our patient special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercise can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues an be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercise and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.


Lifestyle Advice

We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.



 Acupuncture

The practice of acupuncture is the stimulation of certain acupuncture points on the human body for the purpose of controlling and regulating the flow and balance of energy in the body.  The practice includes the techniques of piercing the skin by inserting needles and point stimulation by the use of acupressure, electrical, mechanical, thermal or traditional therapeutic means. Chinese medicine views the human body as a complete organic entity that interconnects the external phenomenal world and the physical bodily structure through a series of natural laws.  Chinese medicine focuses attention on the patient rather than on the disease, grouping together signs and symptoms of a disease and synthesizing them, until a clear picture appears that provides a diagnosis of the person as a whole.


Nutrition

Achieving nutritional balance in the body is essential in preventing disease.  The types of food that we eat and their combination can impact our health and well-being.  A great percentage of chronic disease symptoms are directly related to irregular or improper food intake.  For example sugar and fat will increase problems in diabetics.  In the case of arthritis and joint inflammation, dark shade vegetables should not be ingested, such as eggplant, potatoes, and green peppers. The practitioner will suggest dietary food changes, perhaps detoxification and elimination diets, reinforcing and detoxifying the organs' and glands' ability to improve function.  In the philosophy of Oriental Medicine, food is meant to support and regulate bodily functions.  Nutrition is very specific to the individual's overall condition, not just the symptoms of a particular disorder.  Direct consultation with the practitioner is recommended for this reason.
