We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Brian Grindstaff has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
At WellnessFirst Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, drug-free traction therapy for the relief for the cervical or lumbar spine. The spinal decompression machine stretches the spine, creating negative pressure that enlarges the space between the discs. This motion balances the pressure that has built on the affected discs over time and eventually allows the disc to return to normal position. During this procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxations phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it. This vacuum effect accomplishes two things. From a mechanical standpoint, disc material that has protruded or herniated outside the normal confined of the disc can be pulled pack within the disc. Also, the vacuum disc is stimulated in growth of blood supply, directly stimulating a healing response. This results in pain reduction and proper healing at the injured site.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
Colorpuncture.org defines Esogenic Colorpuncture as "a state-of-the-art holistic healing technology. It brings together knowledge derived from Chinese medicine and other energetic healing systems, modern photon biophysics and new biology, and insights from ancient esoteric healing philosophies, to create a new and unique system of informative/ energetic healing." The method of treatment involves the use of colored light frequencies to acupuncture points and other body zones to transmit light through the energy pathways of the body. This light penetrates deeply into the cells and helps restore cellular communication, aiding the body's natural healing process. "Each Colorpuncture treatment consists of a specific set of points treated in sequence using a prescribed pattern of colors. These treatments regulate the energy and information flow related to all the different systems of the body."
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Sullivan chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Brian Grindstaff can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Sullivan community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at (812) 268-3400 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address eacj patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
