About Chiropractic Care
Aches and pains are signs that your body isn’t working right. Your brain, spinal cord, and all your nerves control how your body works. Physical, chemical, or emotional stresses produce a defensive posture. Muscles contract, locking spinal joints that pinch or irritate nearby nerves. A lack of nervous system integrity sets the stage for disease and ill health. A thorough examination helps chiropractors find these subluxations. Applying a precise force to stuck spinal joints helps the body “right itself.” Health usually returns as repeated visits restore nervous system integrity. That is why chiropractic care by the chiropractors at Benningfield and Associates has helped thousands of patients get well and stay well.
Chiropractic adjustments are the most essential part of your care. Spinal joints that are not moving right can choke or irritate nearby nerves. Chiropractic adjustments add motion to these stuck joints, reducing nervous system disruption. With this, health has the best opportunity to return.
Sometimes a specific, highly-accurate thrust is used, or an instrument delivers carefully directed energy; or a slow, constant pressure is used. Several areas may be adjusted, or just one and sometimes a popping sound is heard.
Because we rely on adjustments to help your body “right itself”, we are highly proficient. Most patients report a sense of well-being and ease. After all, if adjustments were not pleasant, our patients would not return.
Newborns, infants, children, seniors and even back surgery patients can get adjusted. Naturally, adjustments are tailored to your size, age, and particular health issue.
Active Release Techniques
Active Release Technique uses motion to fix the problem. Once the injury has been assessed, the doctor uses hands on treatment and patient motion to “free up” the problem areas. The doctors at Benningfield and Associates have been trained to palpate and treat over 300 muscle injuries and over 100 entrapments, which often are the cause of numbness and tingling.
Active Isolated Stretching
Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a style of rehabilitation developed by Aaron L. Mattes. AIS uses repeated 1.5-2 second stretches to gently and effectively increase flexibility and the ability of the body to deliver blood, oxygen, and nutrients to its cells. The integration of your nervous system with your muscles is enhanced, allowing for improved coordination. AIS combined with proper strength work can help relieve muscle soreness and spasm, address chronic pain, assist in the recovery from injury, as well as reduce the likelihood of becoming injured in the first place.
NUCCA Upper Cervical Care
The Upper Cervical Spinal Correction, which is barely felt by the patient, requires no forceful pulling, twisting or jerking motion of the neck. It is specifically designed to correct head/neck misalignment, to restore body balance, and to reactivate brain communication to the areas affected by misalignment.
