Premier Family Wellness & Spinal Care utilizes the Blair upper cervical technique. Blair upper cervical care focuses on correcting misalignments found within the upper neck. These top joints in the neck have the most control on body posture and nerve function between the brain and all parts of the body. Therefore, corrections that positively affect the alignment of the head and neck allow the entire spine to unwind, bringing the body back into balance, effectively creating long term stability. Blair upper cervical chiropractic utilizes precise and gentle adjustments to the upper neck, delivered painlessly and without twisting or cracking. Even though the primary focus for treatment is on the neck, upper cervical chiropractic successfully helps millions of patients around the world every year suffering from migraines, fibromyalgia, neck and back pain, sciatica, numbness and tingling, vertigo and more.
At Premier Family Wellness, 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.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient’s unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient’s range of motion, while also aiding in a patient’s recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
Cold Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is thought to help accelerate the healing process. It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality. Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure; it does not burn or heat up the skin and does not require a surgical incision. This means that there is no prolonged recovery time. Healthcare professionals use cold laser therapy in a variety of ways. The main uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation. Sports medicine and physical therapy practices use cold laser therapy in the treatment of minor injuries and sprains. It is used to help reduce swelling and promote healing of the joints and soft tissue. Doctors commonly use cold laser to treat inflammation caused by arthritis and other chronic autoimmune diseases. Studies have so far found that cold laser therapy does not have serious side effects when used properly by a doctor or trained professional.
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 Christopher Perkins can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Farmington community, we provide screenings at community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 248-478-6203 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
We know that employers are acutely aware of the costs associated with lost man hours. When employees are not able to function at their best, or if they are not able to work at all, the “ripple effect” has a negative impact on everyone within the business, as well as with the employee and their family. Depending on your type of business, we offer two key services to address this issue BEFORE it becomes a problem; “Employee Health Fairs” and “Community Wellness Fairs”. The purpose of these fairs is to provide early detection of health issues, increase health awareness through wellness screenings, and to educate the community around us to be smarter healthcare consumers with the help of our Farmington upper cervical chiropractors. …CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE
