At Sorrento Valley 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 San Diego office.
We are pleased to announce we are currently offering acupuncture to our patients along with chiropractic care. Acupuncture is an ancient form of medicine, practiced for over 2000 years and is considered a holistic approach to health due to its comprehensive view of the human body and disease. It involves the precise application of very fine solid sterile needles into specific points and cue's the body’s innate self-healing ability to achieve a state of homeostasis, or balance. Acupuncture’s most appealing quality is its use as a preventative medicine, because its goal is to treat the root problem or cause of the disease rather than suppress symptoms as does Western medicine. It can be used for all types of conditions including but not limited to musculo-skeletal issues, chronic body pain, post-operative pain, migraines, digestive disorders, allergies, gynecological issues, dermatology and addictions to name a few. From a biomedical standpoint, acupuncture relieves pain, reduces inflammation and restores the body’s natural homeostasis by activating the nervous, immune and endocrine systems. It is a natural and safe medicinal practice with few risks and no side-effects.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" 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. Our Doctors have years of training and experience in spinal adjustments.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them 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 by as much as 30-40%. 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 our patient is a whole person, and help 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? We can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
