What is Wellness?
Wellness is a lifestyle and a state of mind. Being pro-active, sleeping well, putting constructive foods and drinks into your body, and exercising on a regular basis are keys to the wellness vehicle. But do you want to do the minimum and drive the wellness moped? Or do you want to truly live the lifestyle and drive the luxury wellness sedan? Staying active and eating right are not pro-active habits, they are simply what should be doing. Being pro-active involves doing whatever you can to live your life to the fullest. Without a fully functioning nervous system, you cannot achieve your full potential. And don’t you owe it to yourself to live up to your potential? The wellness state of mind involves never stopping your quest for better health. Health, along with wealth, are the two things in life that you can never have enough of…
The reality is that there are over 150 different types of chiropractic treatments. Chiropractic was founded on having profound effects on the nervous system, helping to restore and maintain its integrity so that the brain and body can communicate without interference.
Another reality is that the point in which the body’s internal environment can no longer withstand the stress of external forces, is the time when the body will begin to break down. Then, it takes time for the body to develop into conditions. From emotional stress to more resistant viruses and bacteria to the hormones pumped into the foods that we eat to the toxicity of the environment, in today’s world there are more external forces working against our health than ever before. Taking a pro-active approach is the best way to stay healthy and live a full and happy lifestyle. What better service can you do for yourself than to ensure that your body is functioning at its best? To maintain and strengthen the body’s own natural healing abilities?
At World Class 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 Burlington and Mebane offices.
Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing “state of the art” chiropractic techniques to return your spine and nervous system to its full potential. 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.
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 by as much as 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 are not dietary specialist nor do we promote a specific brand of nutritional supplements. However, we do provide our patients with recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Basically, if you are eating well balanced meals on a regular basis you’re doing better than the average American. We believe everyone should be supplementing daily because today’s foods do not provide enough of the necessary vitamins & minerals our bodies need to fight the viruses and toxins we are exposed to these days.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. As a regular patient you will receive this service as a regular progress check throughout your care plan. We also 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.
Kinesio tape is an elastic tape with many health benefits. Not only does it provide support to weakened joints, it can help realign posture, reduce painful movement, relax spasming muscles, and even provide improved blood and lymphatic flow. Watch any professional athletic competition and your bound to see some of the athletes wearing bright colorful tape. That’s kinesio tape. If it works for them, it can work for you! You don’t have to be a professional athlete to warrant the health benefits from kinesio tape.
Graston technique uses tools made of surgical steel to reduce muscle spasms and adhesions between tissues. A gel is applied to the skin over the injured soft tissue and the tools are run over the gel with varying pressure to break up the spasms and adhesions. The effects are very similar to a deep massage but can be completed in just a few minutes. This is a highly effective treatment option for shoulder injuries, trigger points, tension headaches, and many more.
