We provide spinal 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 a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Alaina Sloman has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment. She practices the Palmer package: Thompson Drop, Toggle, Diversified, Gonstead Technique. She also does Activator adjustments.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" 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.
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? Dr. Alaina Sloman can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Rock Tape Application and Muscle Release Techniques
At Arrow Chiropractic, we believe the muscles have to be treated as well as the spine, in order to achieve optimum spinal health. Dr. Alaina practices several different muscle release techniques making it easy on the patient and helping them to the road of recovery.
Rock Tape has been used by all walks of life. When training the spine to be aligned, sometimes the muscle needs help to follow suit. The Rock Tape application helps support the injured or recovering muscles in conjunction with joints that the muscle attaches to as well. Schedule your appointment today to see what muscle release techniques and Rock Tape application can do for you!
