At Northwest Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our offices.
We provide spinal and extremity joint correction utilizing gentle 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 Doctors of Chiropractic, Dr. Shelby and Dr. Evans have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Dr. Shelby and Dr. Evans are both certified acupuncturists. They have been treating patients with acupuncture in various forms since as early as 1996.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s 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? Our doctors can provide a structured nutritional plan based on your individual needs.
We teach our patients special exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
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 patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
Neurological Applications of Applied Kinesiology (NAAK)
Dr. Evans specializes in one of the most advanced Applied Kinesiology systems in the world, Neurological Applications of Applied Kinesiology (NAAK). NAAK is a fusion of Applied Kinesiology, Chiropractic Neurology and Functional Medicine. This technique allows the doctor to assess the functional abilities of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and all the organs and tissues innervated by the nervous system. This creates a system with infinite variables and combinations of treating the whole body all the way to the cellular and genetic levels. NAAK has been especially useful in cases of chronic pain, concussions, sports injury prevention, and undiagnosed illnesses. For more information click here.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. These types of postural and spinal screenings are a part of the normal procedure here at Northwest Chiropractic.
If you are a professional bus or truck driver, you know how rigorous the demands of your job can be. In order to ensure your and the public’s safety you’ll most likely need to take a DOT (Department Of Transportation) physical.
A DOT physical is a checkup that’s required for commercial vehicle drivers by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
This exam makes sure that you are able to meet the physical requirements of your job.
NRT (Nutrition Response Testing)
Dr. Shelby specializes in Nutrition Response Testing, which is a non-invasive way to test your body and discover what deficiencies or underlying issues are causing your symptoms and health conditions, developed by Dr. Freddie Ulan.
When you give your body the exact nutrients it needs it can heal itself. The best way to give your body what it needs is to discover what is lacking and help the body get back in balance. This is done with Nutrition Response Testing. We find out what your body needs and create a clinically designed , personal nutrition program based on the testing.
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patient in the car of the human frame, in nutrition and in the cause and prevention of disease.” Thomas Edison
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy that stimulates healing by using low levels of laser light.
The technique is called “cold” laser therapy because the low levels of light aren’t enough to heat your body’s tissues.
During this procedure, low level laser light is applied directly to the targeted area. The body tissue then absorbs the light. The laser light cases a reaction within the tissue and the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration (healing). Although you’ll feel the laser device touching your skin, the procedure is painless and noninvasive. There will be no sound and you’ll feel no vibration or heat. Each treatment typically only takes a few minutes.
The main uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation such as in:
- Ligament sprains
- Muscle strains
- Tennis elbow
- Back pain
- Joint pains
- Muscle spasms
