Chiropractic Care

Dr. Italia adjusting patientAt Italia Chiropractic Health Center, you can consider us a combination of an orthopedic and physical therapy practice. Let’s say you have a back problem, and you go to an orthopedist who examines you and takes a history. The doctor will do some physical exam tests and come up with a diagnosis such as back strain.

The orthopedist will then give you medication. In contrast, as a chiropractic office, we will perform a similar evaluation, but instead of providing medicine, we offer natural care in the form of therapy, exercise and nutrition.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care

The chiropractic adjustment is used to improve joint mechanics. If a joint doesn’t move properly due to an injury we will have to realign the body through a correction. Chiropractic care helps to restore proper alignment, range of motion and normal biomechanics so the body can move the way it’s supposed to move. Then we can add in some postural and stability exercises to keep the biomechanics moving.

The primary technique we use is Diversified, which employs a variety of methods to move joints. Dr. Italia also has been trained in Flexion Distraction, motion palpation, and Drop Table. “The beauty of Diversified is you’re trained in a wide variety of techniques,” he said.

Think about going to a doctor if you have an infection. That physician has a broad array of antibiotics from which to choose. There’s more than one available as some people have reactions to certain antibiotics.

With chiropractic, some people do better with specific techniques. One person could do better with Diversified and another with Flexion Distraction.

Dr. Italia never takes a one-size-fits-all approach to care. He provides chiropractic based on what he finds in an examination and his training. It also depends on each patient’s condition and skeletal structure. For example, if a 90-year-old man has arthritis or osteoporosis, Dr. Italia won’t use a technique that he’s performing on a 20-year-old man with a healthy spine.

If you’ve never been adjusted before and have some anxiety, Dr. Italia will have you begin with some gentle stretches before adjusting you.
