Scope Chiropractic strives to promote top quality, patient centered, chiropractic care. We endeavor to promote and inspire living a healthy and active lifestyle.
Acupuncture is used to alleviate pain and restore function to specific areas of the body. It involves targeting very fine needles at trigger points (taught bands of hypersensitive muscle) and can relieve pain very quickly. For people who suffer with chronic or nerve pain the needles may be left in for up to 20 minutes to have a more central effect on the nervous system. This ‘dulls down’ the pain sensitivity of the brain, reducing the body’s sensation of pain.
Exercise prescription is what differentiates us to other Chiropractors. We prescribe specific functional exercises to help promote better body mechanics and prevent future re-occurrences of pain or dysfunction. Due to certain repetitive daily habits, we start to lose basic movement patterns which often go undetected until symptoms such as pain are produced. Our exercises are prescribed to reduce pain, improve mobility and restore basic movement and balance patterns.
Our goal is to keep our patients doing what they love doing for as long as possible. Our maintenance treatments are not only about providing treatment to tight or restricted areas, but are also about utilizing that time for patient support, updating exercises and modifying activities of daily living. We want to give our patients the opportunity to live a healthy, happy life through a well moving body.
We spend about one third of our life sleeping; hence, having a properly fitted and supportive pillow is vital for your spinal health. We can identify the appropriate levels of height and support that suits you.
