Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints.
Kinesiology Taping is a precise rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints. This technique allows the body’s normal range of motion as well as providing extending soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. Kinesio tape is latex-free and hypoallergenic which makes it “skin friendly” for patients with sensitive or fragile skin; such as, patients with diabetes, fibromyalgia or rheumatoid arthritis.

Myofascial release is an intervention administered to various patients to alleviate pain or restrictive tissue problems. The release treatment usually involves the application of gentle or moderate pressure on the connective tissues and leads to relaxation and eventual elongation of the fascia therein. These restrictions are often caused by traumatic accidents or inflammations of the soft tissue. Some patients get them as an after-effect of surgery. They always result in muscular tension and spasm of sharp pain.
Chiropractic care is not just for adults. In fact, more and more parents are seeing the many benefits of their children seeing a chiropractor every single day. Some of the benefits are improved sleep, improved behavior and attitude, and improved immune system function. Children encounter many physical stresses in their life that you may not realize. These stresses can cause your child’s spine to have issues in growth and development.

When detected early, scoliosis can be managed to prevent the progressions of the curvatures. Most cases of scoliosis appear for unknown reasons as scoliosis tends to develop before puberty in children who previously had no spine issues.
Many cases of scoliosis do not require surgery and respond extremely well to chiropractic care.
Common signs of scoliosis include:
- Head consisted tilted to one side
- One shoulder higher than the other
- One shoulder blade more prominent that the other
- Having an uneven or sunken chest shape
- One hip higher than the other
- One leg appears shorter than the other
Most people with scoliosis are unaware that they have it as it is not severe or painful enough to affect their daily lives. There is no cure for scoliosis, but if not cared for, scoliosis can cause additional issues into adulthood such as back pain, numbness or tingling in your legs, fatigue, and breathing problems. Luckily, chiropractic care along with back strengthening exercises are a great means to eliminate discomfort.
Sometimes all that stands between your daily pain and a happier, healthier you, is a chiropractic adjustment. Your body naturally wants to be in alignment, but our daily activities can push what is naturally aligned out of balance. Here at Anewed Horizon Chiropractic, we can help you achieve balance and proper alignment, giving you relief and improving your health.
Our goal in analyzing your spinal is to detect subluxations so that we can work with you at reducing these subluxations to get you back to living a healthy lifestyle.
One of the most important elements of chiropractic care is diagnostics. Chiropractic radiology is a tool utilized in care as a diagnostic practice to rule out pathology (such as possible tumor or fracture) and/or an additional aid to determine where to adjust the spine. Chiropractors rely on a variety of diagnostic techniques in order to fully understand what is occurring in the patient’s musculoskeletal system, and how a given treatment intervention could bring about positive results in each patient.
Components of the Gonstead System
When making a decision that concerns your health, why would you want to use anything less than all the information available? Everybody is different and every BODY is different. You deserve to have a specific analysis for YOUR specific body for YOUR specific needs. This will ensure specific, precise, and accurate care which ultimately leads to better overall function and health as well as increase your confidence in the doctor’s ability to aid you on the path to wellness.
The Gonstead Method of Chiropractic is considered the “Gold Standard” of Chiropractic care. It uses a comprehensive five-step analysis in order to find the root causes of the spinal and extremity problems. This allows the chiropractor to be very precise and accurate with your care to achieve great overall health, wellness, and longevity. With a specific Gonstead adjustment, we can reduce the subluxation, increase ranges of motion, reduce nerve irritation and improve mobility.
