Therapies & Methods

Chiropractic Adjustments

Hands or a small instrument is used to reposition the joints of the body. This spinal manipulation helps correct structural alignment, and can improve the body's physical function, reduce joint inflammation, and alleviate pain.

When performed by a trained specialist, this highly controlled manual procedure will rarely cause discomfort, and often delivers immediate positive changes in symptoms after treatement.

Intersegmental Traction

The Anatomotor has a moving top on which the patient glides back and forth just under the normal respiration rate. Two sets of adjustable-height massage rollers straddle the spine and rhythmically loosen taut muscles. This deep-kneading massage effectively prepares the patient for traction which actually separates the spinal vertebrae.

Clinical Nutrition

We are firm believers in the concept that your nutrients should come from a healthy, vitamin-rich diet. However, supplements can provide your body with compounds that may otherwise not be consumed, and can help your body get the proper nutrients that it needs in order to function efficiently.

These products are not intended to prevent or treat any specific disease, and are certainly not substitutes for a regular healthy diet, but certain supplements can be used appropriately to address deficiencies that can reduce the body's capacity for maximum health and nourishment.

Dr Sheldon D.C. is a Clinical Nutrtionist and brings 30 plus years experience with his patients. He offers 30/60 minute Nutritional Consultations at Sheldon Chiropractic and Wellness and classes 4 times a year.

We carry a complete line of high quality Nutiritonal Supplements:

Standard Process, MediHerb, Energetics, Designs for Health, Metagenics, OrthoMolecular, Biotics, Juice Plua, Anabolic Laboratories, and Natural Vitality.

Auto Injury-specific Care

Car accidents can be very traumatic on the body. The range of possible injuries is wide and varied, and the symptoms may not present themselves right away, which is why it is important to be examined right away by a doctor trained in the biomechanics of the human body.

Even minor auto incidents can result in serious physical ailments that can greatly affect your quality of life. Immediate chiropractic treatment after such a trauma can help relieve the pain and reduced mobility brought on by whiplash and other car-related neck and back injuries.

Gentle Activator Adjustments

A hand-held tool is used during chiropractic spinal manipulation to apply a controlled, precise, and gentle "low force" thrust to reposition the joints in the body. This highly researched technique was designed to provide a way to adjust the spine so quickly and exactly that the natural muscle resistance is greatly reduced.

This method is safe and reliable, especially gentle and comfortable, and is recognized and covered by Medicare. Its high level of precision and control make it a great tool when adjusting small children, the elderly, or those in muscular discomfort.

Contact Reflex Analysis

In this technique, a variety of body reflex and muscle resistance testing methods are used to determine weaknesses and identify the origin of a blockage or problem. Reflex areas on the skin represent various organs, glands, and bone structures, and an abnormal neuromuscular reaction at these points can help identify underlying problems.

CRA is a non-invasive, safe, and natural way to determine imbalances in the body, including physical and nutritional deficiencies, trauma from injury, and infections. While it is not a method of diagnosis, it is a simple method for preventative and investigative analysis of possible underlying causes of ailments.

Medical Massage Therapy

Medical Massage Therapy is performed by a Licensed Massage Therapist and is specific to areas of your body that Dr. Sheldon specifies will assist the patient with their Chiropractic Care. Each session is 50 minutes in length. Some insurances do cover part of your therapy when billed in conjunction with chiropractic adjstments.

Cash Pricing is also available for those who do not have coverage for therapies. 
 

Certified Pediatric Care

Birth is one of the most physically traumatic events in human life. Early chiropractic care can help ensure that the nervous, skeletal, and immune systems can function optimally, promoting healthy and active development from birth through childhood.

Research has shown pediatric chiropractic care to be effective in a variety of common childhood conditions, including headaches, ear infections, colic, constipation, and asthma, as well as back and neck pain.

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy can stimulate all cell types including muscle, ligament, cartilage, nerves, etc., so a number of conditions can be treated by cold laser therapy. Some of conditions that may typically be treated by cold laser therapy include:

  • Arthritis pain
  • Back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia pain
  • Knee pain
  • Neck pain
  • Tendonitis
Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation

Mettler Electronics Interferential Sys-Electric Stim (NMES)

Pads are placed on the areas of the body affected which elicits muscle contraction using electrical impulses.

The impulses are generated by a device and delivered through electrodes on the skin in direct proximity to the muscles to be stimulated. The impulses mimic the action potential coming from the central nervous system, causing the muscles to contract. The electrodes are generally pads that adhere to the skin.

Hands Free Ultrasound HF54

Ultrasound uses ultrasonic sound waves to gently vibrate the cells in the targeted body part.  This vibration can break down scar tissue which impedes healing, reduces range of motion and can cause abnormal nerve growth in the area leading to chronic pain.  Ultrasound can be used for a deep heating effect, reduce pain, inflammation and even dissolve certain bone spurs like heel spurs.
