What Services does HOH Chiropractic & wellness offer?
Hastinfs On Hudson Chiropractic diagnoses and treats dysfunction and subluxation related to the spine and joints of the body. This includes improper spinal bone alignment and motion, muscular dysfunction as well as associated symptoms and conditions.
Subluxation or misaligned spinal bones can result in improper signal from the brain to the muscles, tissues and organs of the body. In muscles you may experience tension or spasm, this is a result of subluxation/misalignment. Many times, along with spinal or extremity adjustment, there is need for correction of associated muscular dysfunction. Techniques to treat muscular dysfunction are offered and include Muscular Relief Therapy (MRT), Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Technique (IAST) as well as SpiderTech Taping Technique. Please see our page of services for a more detailed look inside each of these techniques.
What is an Adjustment?
An adjustment is a specific light to moderate force manipulation of the any joint in the body. Although, most of the adjustments are done to the spine, they can be of great help to other joints of the body. You may hear a popping or clicking sound when the adjustment is made, this is normal! If you have any hesitation with adjustments, please feel free to contact Dr. Caitlin for a free 15 minute chat.
Why don’t you take Insurance?
Unfortunately in today’s world, insurances continue to increase deductibles as well as co-payments. Insurances also make it very difficult for the patient as well as the doctor to be paid for due services. We believe that chiropractic care as a maintenance or preventative medicine should be affordable to all so that we can decrease the amount you will have to pay on over all medical care in the future! Keeping you healthy and your body in a state of total wellness will save you money ! Many patients find that our plans are very affordable and are significantly less than a copay or deductible they would have to pay anyway.
What is Preventative or Maintenance Care?
Every day there is cause for your body to experience subluxation whether it be from a physical cause, a stressful situation or from the environment you’re living in. Dysfunction and subluxation are often long standing as well, stemming from past sports injuries, accidents or traumatic life events. It is essential you keep your spine aligned on a regular basis. Just your everyday posture, workplace ergonomics, sleeping positions and stress can cause misalignment in your body.
Regular spinal checks for maintenance are very helpful in maintaining optimal wellness. When we detect and correct subluxation before it becomes a problem, we can prevent times where you experience acute injury or dysfunction. This in turn improves quality of life and function of your body by freeing up the nerves (which run in between each and every vertebrae) to properly send signals to and from the brain to every tissue, muscle and organ of your body!
It is always suggested that someone that wants to obtain optimal health and wellness also eat a proper diet which is full of all of the essential vitamins and minerals that our bodies need. For this reason I suggest a full nutritional assessment and often times supplements for my patients as well. You can find more information on the supplements I recommend on my nutraMetrix page.
