Services We Offer …
At Espinosa Family Chiropractic Centers, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is the list of services we offer in our office. We serve the Greater Sacramento Area and are located in the beautiful East Sacramento Neighborhood.
CORRECTIVE CARE CHIROPRACTIC
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing “traditional” 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. As Doctors of Chiropractic, our staff have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment as well as continual education to make sure we are always giving the best care possible.
Corrective Care Chiropractic is a completely different approach to achieving and maintaining optimal health. A true Corrective Care Chiropractor will evaluate the Central Nervous System (CNS) and spinal function. The Chiropractic Corrective Care doctor evaluates the person for not only trauma and pathology, but more importantly, for function. Since our CNS controls every single one of our cells, tissues, and organs we need it to function as close to 100% as possible. When we see a patient for the first time at our clinic we always let them know there are two basic forms of chiropractic care. One being relief care, which is pain control, and the other is corrective care, which works on the underlying structural abnormalities (that are causing the pain) to return the body to its healthiest functioning state. It’s kind of like spinal orthodontics.
Although all Chiropractors are able to give relief care, the Corrective Care doctors and staff at our office will search for the true cause of any health condition and design a specific plan of action for each patient. The Corrective Care adjustment and alignment process, similar to what an Orthodontist does to teeth to correct their alignment, in time can often correct the spinal alignment. Thus stopping, or at least slowing down, the degenerative decay in the spine. This often requires several visits over a period of time. However, it will not require bracing the spine but instead giving very specific Chiropractic adjustments to slow down the degeneration at the spinal level and improve nerve function. Corrective Care Chiropractic can aid in building a healthy body and immune system by slowing down mechanical decay in the spine and helping the patient to function at an optimal level to maximize their overall health and quality of life.
We teach our patients special “back care” exercises designed just for them, to help strengthen and correct their own unique problems. 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.
BACK CARE CLASSES
Another way we teach our patients special “back care” exercises is through our bi-weekly Back Care Class. Our doctor teaches a back care class that will give our patients the necessary tools needed to take care of themselves even when they are not in the office. This consists of teaching our patients what chiropractic is, what specific chiropractic adjustments do to their bodies, and how they can assist their bodies during this healing and corrective process. On top of teaching the patients all this, the doctor will also show them how to do different daily stretches, proper sitting positions, proper sleeping positions, and much more.
We often find it helpful to “coach” our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to keep from aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle doing the activities they enjoy the most. We recognize that each of our patients is a whole person. Helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborative effort between our professionals and our patients.
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at Cal Expo events, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
