What is different about Carney Chiropractor Care?
I treat patients from the newborn to the senior members of our community.
I pay attention to medications, and nutrition when treating the elderly or any of my patients.
FASCIA RELEASE In the human body, fascia surrounds each muscle with an saran wrap like layer.
Fascia surrounds the heart, brain, lungs, kidneys, digestive organs and the liver. Fascia permeates our bodies and holds us together. When we have physical trauma from accidents or surgeries, fascia can become distorted, dysfunctional and become tight and unmoving. What once was a free-flowing protective layer around a muscle can become a smothering, tight sack that strangles movement and causes pain.
I treat FASCIA problems with a PERCUSSOR Instrument, which gives penetrating vibrations into arears of scar tissue and causes a relaxing release of tension. Following these treatments, there is often an increase in mobility of internal organs, an improved sense of well being, release from pain, an increase in ability to eliminate and an occasional emotional releases. Note- a high percentage of people suffering with pain, headache and/or lack of motion may be having fascia problems that may go undiagnosed. The standard test such as x-rays, ct scans, electromyography, etc., do not show the fascia restrictions.
LASER THERAPY I treat chronic/acute pain and other joint and neurological conditions with low level laser therapy. The laser is used to enhance tissue recovery and advance/speed injury healing time. Treatments can vary in time from seconds to minutes depending on the severity of the condition. Research studies show that there may be a -dose dependent response, so it may be more effective to treat at lower doses at multiple intervals than to treat a single time with high dose.
ACTIVATOR METHODS TECHNIQUE To address spinal joint dysfunction, we use an instrument called an Activator. This unique hand-held instrument was scientifically designed to give a very specific, low force adjustment. This technique utilizes specific procedures to detect spinal joint dysfunction, leg length inequality, detect mechanical joint problems, and test neurological reflexes. With these analytical tools, we can begin the process of restoring your overall spinal balance.
I graduated with honors in research from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa in 1989.
I have taken advanced courses in RADIOLOGY at Palmer College and can read x-rays, MRI, CT's, and understand the most critical injuries or deteriation of the spine and body.
While playing on the RUGBY Team at Palmer College. I was injured and learned first hand how to handle all types of sports injuries.
