Canning Chiropractic Services & Care
Wellness and Prevention
Those who have never been to a chiropractor may assume that the practice is restricted to only cracking one’s back and dealing with joint pain. This simply is not true. In addition to working with the spinal joints, chiropractors work to enhance the fluidity of movement, ensure muscular health, optimize performance, and may even help with indigestion and nausea or bloating. Many individuals visit a chiropractor simply to ensure that they are healthy and that their body is in good shape and to avoid developing future problems.
Prenatal and Pediatric Care
Did you know that both children and pregnant mothers can benefit from chiropractic care? Even newborns can benefit from a visit to the chiropractor to ensure that everything is properly aligned and developed. In fact, bringing your kiddo to a chiropractor can help ensure that any problems are caught early and addressed.
Moreover, pregnant mothers who often feel restricted due to the pregnancy can regain mobility safely under the guidance of a certified chiropractor. The procedure is completely pregnancy-safe and can even help reduce pregnancy-associated pains.
Accidents and Injuries
An accident or injury can cause lasting pain, discomfort, or even loss of movement. Every injury has its risks and its optimal recovery speed. Going too fast may cause greater injury while not moving enough can have complications as well. Whether you have been injured at work, during a motor accident, or because of athletic activity, a chiropractor can help you recover. At Canning Chiropractic, we will work with you to assess your injury and create a recovery plan that is suited for your unique situation. Dr. Canning has extensive experience treating a variety of injuries and can help reduce pain while promoting healing and increasing mobility.
Canning Chiropractic offers state of the art technology including Tytron Thermography. Tytron is one of the newest tools in the chiropractic field and is designed to help detect a variety of spine-related problems. The scan is swift and noninvasive, covering the upper cervical area or the full spine in about 15 seconds.
Why You’ll Love It
If you happen to be the type of person who is very diligent about understanding your health and body, the Tytron can help! Dr. Canning and our staff will happily walk you through the images on the Tytron to give you a better idea of your body’s situation. As you work with us, you’ll be able to visually see the changes on the scans as the problem improves while you feel the results.
How It Works
The Tytron relies on the nerves that originate from the spinal column and go on to innervate specific areas of the skin called dermatomes. Humans have a total of thirty dermatomes with eight cervical dermatomes, innervated by the neck area of the spine, twelve thoracic dermatomes from the upper and mid-back, five lumbar dermatomes from the lower back and five sacral dermatomes from the very end of the spinal cord. The dermatomes help control temperature and blood flow to the body. If something is wrong within the spinal cord, the temperature will vary, signaling a problem. The Tytron picks up those heat differences and isolated problematic areas.
At Canning Chiropractic, we are an upper cervical practice specializing in the activator technique. The Atlas bone is a small bone at the base of your neck that helps connect your head to the rest of your spine. As the first bone of the spine, the Atlas is small but extremely important. When the Atlas is misaligned, the entire spine and body can suffer.
Some signs of a misaligned Atlas include:
- Reduced or painful range of motion in neck, mid-back, low back and hips
- Poor posture
- Leg length difference
- Bodyweight imbalance
- Muscular imbalance leading to muscle tension and/or tenderness
- Progressive degenerative changes in vertebrae, discs and/or disc spaces
The Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic approach relies on manipulating the Atlas bone- either gently or with light force to ensure that this small bone is in the correct, orthogonal position. At Canning Chiropractic, we use the activator technique to carefully maneuver the Atlas and ensure optimized alignment. The procedure is safe and painless and, after the Atlas is corrected, the rest of the spine tends to follow which improves balance and improves bodily functions.
