Chiropractic Adjustments

The purpose of an adjustment is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile - or restricted in their movement - as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the patient. Chiropractic adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.

Dr. Liz's adjustments are customized to fit you, whether you are suffering from acute aches and pains or a chronic nagging condition. Based on a thorough history, exam and necessary tests, she will determine an adjustment regimen that fits your specific needs.

Massage Therapy

Often referred to as bodywork or somatic therapy, massage therapy refers to the application of various techniques to the muscular structure and soft tissues of the body that include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, vibration, rocking, friction, kneading and compression using primarily the hands or elbows.

Our office offers a variety of massage techniques- including deep tissue, sports, swedish and detoxifying. The highly trained therapist of The Chiropractic Sanctuary are mentored by Dr. Liz so that all patients receive customized and effective Sanctuary treatment in a tranquil and serene setting.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a natural, safe and effective therapy that has been used for many centuries to heal illness, prevent disease and improve well-being. Tiny, hair-thin needles are inserted into specific points in the body, where they are gently stimulated to trigger the body's natural healing response.

Acupuncture is effective for controlling pain and can regulate the body's physiological functions to treat various internal dysfunction and disorders. It has been succesfully used for the treatment of back pain, headache, migraines, and sports injuries. It is also helpful in treating anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, abdominal, menstrual cramps, weight control, infertility and much, much more as indicated below.

Therapeutic and Rehabilitative Exercises

Rehabilitative therapy works well in conjunction with Chiropractic Care. It can dramatically increase and maintain muscle strength and endurance, restore and increase joint range of motion, flexibility, coordination and good posture. Most physical conditions require strengthening specific muscles, ligaments and joints for improved health. Rehabilitative therapy can also help to decrease muscle spasm and plasticity, decrease swelling and inflammation of joints, promote healing of soft tissue lesions, prevent contracture and deformity of limbs, alleviate walking problems.

Dr. Liz works directly with our physical therapists to coordinate a program that is specific to your needs.

Nutritional Counseling

Proper diet and nutrition can make a profound impact on a person's health. Everyday choices of the foods we eat affect the body and how well it functions. Our office provides services for patients of all ages, ranging from infants to adulthood. Individualized nutrition counseling is provided for many health issues that are affected by the diet.
