Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. Chiropractors use adjustments to correct subluxations of the spine and extremities. Subluxations contribute to health disorders and pain. Dr. Carlee utilizes Chiropractic adjustments and CranioSacral as well as Activator instrument, Drop Table adjusting, and other light touch adjustments. She also does viceral adjusting to correct abnormal organ and tissue motion. Chiropractic can treat headaches, neck pain, mid back pain, shoulder problems including rotator cuff injuries and pain, low back pain, disc injuries, pain resulting from auto accidents, knee and ankle pain, and many other conditions.
Applied Kinesiology is a non-evasive technique of testing structural (back pain, sciatica, neck pain), chemical (digestive, hormonal, neurochemicals) and mental (stress) aspects of health using functional assessment of the neuromuscular / neuromechanical system. A.K. is also used with other standard methods of diagnosis. Biochemical
Pregnancy Care - Pre and Post Natal
Women’s bodies experience many different changes during pregnancy. Chiropractic may benefit pregnant women by reducing low back pain, having shorter labor times, and by detecting, preventing, and correcting the position of the baby. Dr. Carlee’s goal is to support pregnant women, make sure they are comfortable, and empower them to have the birth they want. After birth, the mother’s pelvis changes in many ways, most importantly the biomechanics. These changes can bring discomfort and imbalances with nursing, sleeping, walking, and even going to the bathroom. Restoring these imbalances in the pelvis along with core and pelvic floor rehabilitation, is pertinent to getting the mother's body to heal and function better, much like it was prior to being pregnant. Her goal is to promote optimum health before, during and after pregnancy for both mother and child. This will form the foundation of a lifelong partnership in health and wellness for the whole family.
Yes! Children can be adjusted, although it may appear different than what you've experienced for an adult. Children have the same joints that we do, but they’re not quite fully formed yet. Rather than being truly bony they are more cartilaginous, so the adjustments have to be done with less force; this is due to the increased flexibility within the joint and the smaller surface area the doctor is treating. If a child is experiencing spinal dysfunction, their ability to learn through touch, taste, sight, smell, and hearing, may be hindered.
