At Apex Wellness Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Glendale office.
Chiropractic Techniques and Modalities
We provide spinal and extraspinal correction utilizing diversified approach manually and mechanically. The goal of the chiropractic adjustment is to realign joint subluxations which brings the bones of a joint back to their normal natural fit.
Spinal decompression therapy is FDA cleared and has a high success rate for pain relief associated with herniated or bulging discs even after failed surgery. The gentle stretch and traction of the spinal decompression treats the low back and neck by decompressing and opening up the spinal column. This increases blood supply and nutrients to the disc in the affected areas and can treat: pinched nerve, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, radiating pain into upper or lower extremities and improve range of motion.
Electrical Stimulation Therapy:
E-Stim is a therapeutic treatment used for muscle spasms, low back pain, post surgical acute pain, muscle re-education, maintain or increase range of motion, bursitis and tendonitis.
Therapeutic ultrasound is used to create a deep heat effect to relieve pain, muscle spasms and reduce stiffness caused by inflammation.
Myofacial Release & Trigger Point Therapy / IASTM:
Therapy is used for soft tissue injuries such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinosis/itis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, IT band, Tennis and Golfer’s elbow and rotator cuff tendonitis to break off adhesions and scar tissue allowing faster rehabilitation.
Rehabilitation and Stretch:
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. 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.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s 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? Dr. Teni Minaeian, D.C. can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
