The Care You Deserve
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
Wellness from the Beginning
Dr. Ritchie has been trained to work with pregnant women, and utilizes a table that adjusts for a pregnant woman’s body, and techniques are used that avoid unneeded pressure on the abdomen. Investing in the fertility and wellness of women who are pregnant or trying to conceive is a routine care for most chiropractors.
It is never too early to bring your child to the chiropractor. Infants just minutes old are often checked by the loving hands of the family chiropractor and it is not uncommon to stop by the chiropractor’s office on the way home from the hospital. The birthing process is physically strenuous for both mom and baby, so it is best to get them both cared for as soon as possible afterwards.
Healing from Trauma
The day of the accident, you may have quite a bit of discomfort immediately following the accident. However, there are many times when victims of the accident only feel, some pain in the neck, back arms or legs. The amount of adrenaline that streams through our bodies following an accident can tend to mask the severity of the injuries that a person may have sustained during the accident. Many accident victims go to the Hospital Emergency Rooms, following an accident, with some pains. However, the accident victims are usually instructed to monitor themselves, because the discomfort from the injuries that they have sustained is likely to get worse.
Even if you are not a chiropractic patient, you may come in for a nutritional consultation. Dr. Ritchie received her bachelors degree from Life University in dietetics in 2006 and will advise you based on your medical history, available lab results, medical diagnosis or other recent, valid test results to allow for a proper assessment of nutritional needs.
Health Comes First
ZERONA is the only FDA cleared medical procedure for the circumferential reduction of the waist, hips, thighs, and upper arms. ZERONA contours an anatomical area by safely disrupting the fat cell’s outer membranes, resulting in the release of stored intracellular lipids. Once released, the
stored lipids can be safely removed and processed by the body. Knowing that the fat removal process will take several hours, perhaps several days, how is it possible that ZERONA can reduce a person’s waist circumference after just one treatment? Simple – hydrophobicity! For all you chefs out there, you are already familiar with the principles of hydrophobicity. When oil is added to water, what happens? Oil droplets form.
Cold Laser Pain Management
The North American Association of Laser Therapy (NAALT) adopted the term Phototherapy in 2003. This inclusive term is defined as: a therapeutic physical modality using photons (light energy) from the visible and infrared spectrum for tissue healing and pain.
