We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Timothy Angely has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them 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 by as much as 30-40%. 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 our patient is a whole person, and help 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? Dr. Timothy Angely can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs. We use Standard Process which uses only organic whole food vitamins and minerals.
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
To compliment and enhance the healing effects of Dr. Angely's specific Chiropractic manipulative treatment, we at Advanced Chiropractic Health Clinic also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
- Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
- Microamperage neural stimulation
- Mechanical traction
- Moist heat therapy
Trigger point dry needling or intra-muscular stimulation is a procedure that aims to reduce local and referred pain by means of producing a muscular contraction with a small filament needle. We’ve learned that a well-
placed needle into a trigger point or soft tissue can reset that muscle quicker and with less pain than when using one’s hands or other therapy instruments. It’s earned the term ‘dry’ because there are no injections made into the tissues of the body. Needling causes a localized inflammatory response to tissues in need of fresh nutrients, and helps relieve pain associated with arthritis, whiplash, nerve irritation, muscular strain, ligament strains and herniated discs.
Dry needling and acupuncture, while using the same needles, are two very different treatments. Acupuncture is used to treat from a holistic standpoint, while Dry Needling is more mechanistic in nature. Acupuncture is effective in reducing pain, but also aims at treating conditions such as digestive problems, infertility, flu and high blood pressure. Trigger point dry needling, on the other hand is useful for many orthopedic complaints such as:
- Cervicogenic headaches
- Acute and chronic neck and low back pain
- Ligamentous problems (plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinosis, ACL, MCL, LCL, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow)
- Muscular hematomas
- Shin splints
- Hip pain (IT band syndrome, piriformis syndrome)
- Rotator cuff syndrome, shoulder impingement syndrome
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Deactivates myofascial trigger points which can cause musculoskeletal pain
- Restores normal length and function to the involved muscle
- Reduces pain and inflammation
- Accelerates naturally / reduces recovery time
Frequency of dry needling sessions is dependent on the issue and the degree of its severity. Even better, when paired with other therapies such as chiropractic adjustments and tissue manipulation, dry needling more effectively helps reduce pain and restore function…
Massage is the intentional and systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body to enhance health and healing. Joint movements and stretching are commonly performed as part of massage. Research shows massage therapy can help in varying populations with anxiety, depression, boosting immune function, lowering blood pressure, heart rate, decreasing pain, range of motion, and quality of sleep.
