When you are suffering from an unexpected pain or injury, or when you simply require general health attention without waiting for an appointment, we are the provider you need.
Chiropractors work with the spine, not just because it's often the source of neck and back pain, but because it houses and protects the central nervous system -- that system which monitors, controls and regulates all body function, and allows the body to adapt to internal and external influences.
You can be assured – we have a commitment to excellence when it comes to the level of care we provide
Chiropractic care is a safe, drug-free, non-invasive approach to health and wellness for the whole family, including children. Chiropractic emphasizes the nervous system’s interaction with the whole body.
Rather than focusing on symptoms, chiropractors have a holistic approach to wellness and utilize therapeutic techniques and lifestyle changes to achieve optimal spinal and nervous system function.
Acupuncture provides a therapeutic effect by facilitating the activity of the body’s natural healing mechanisms, thus restoring normal sensation and function to an area of imbalance. It is well established in scientific literature that acupuncture also has analgesic (pain relieving) effects, and the addition of electrical stimulation of acupuncture needles (electroacupuncture) has enhanced these effects.
The Thompson Technique utilizes a "Segmental Drop Table" to enhance the motion force imparted towards the segment or area to be Adjusted.
Dr. Thompson introduced the concept of adding motion by inventing a headpiece that would drop away as the adjustive thrust was applied to the vertebral segment.
Orthotics are specially designed shoe inserts used to relieve pain, correctly align the body, and support foot, leg, knee, and hip function. Just as no two feet are alike, no two pairs of orthotics are built alike. They are custom crafted based on a pressure scan of your feet as you stand, walk, or run. Orthotics increase stability and motion control, offer extreme shock absorption, and correct biomechanical imbalances due to leg length discrepancies, uneven hips, or tight musculature.
In the chiropractic profession, Activator means two distinct things:
1) An adjusting instrument used to manipulate dysfunctioning joints,
2) An analytical procedure using leg-length analysis to determine where, when and when not to perform an adjustment.
Chiropractors generally use an Activator instrument to perform a spinal adjustment.
chiropractic and pregnancy
During pregnancy, hormonal changes, the laxity of connective ligaments, and shifting of weight-bearing structures, may cause many pregnant women to experience low back pain. Also, as the center of gravity changes, so does the tension to the spine.
Dr. Amini's years of experience has proven to her that many women find their labor shorter and experience less discomfort if they've received chiropractic care.
cold laser therapy
Laser therapy is the use of monochromatic light emission from a low intensity laser diode or an array of high intensity super luminous diodes to treat musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions and to heal wounds. The light source is placed in contact with the skin allowing the photon energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with cellular function restoring normal cell function and enhancement of the body’s healing processes.
Registered Massage therapists are highly trained to perform treatments to the soft tissues of the body, specifically the muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments for the purpose of optimizing circulation and speed up healing of injured soft tissues. Techniques can vary, and may include traditional Swedish and non-Swedish techniques in addition to advice on self-stretching and home care techniques. Massage Therapy can be used to achieve a relaxing effect and promote overall well being.
chiropractic and children
We make sure that the adjustments are modified to fit a child's size, weight, and specific spinal problem. Parents often report that their children seem healthier under chiropractic care. Studies indicate that regular chiropractic checkups are especially beneficial as natural spinal curves are developed.
Dr. Amini has a special interest in treating children of all ages. She has 6 years of experience treating children including her own daughter (toddler).
