At Better Life Chiropractic & Wellness, 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 Sheboygan office.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing the latest technology and chiropractic techniques. For those who do not like the popping sounds that a manual adjustment creates, we can utilize the ProAdjuster and other techniques. Equally as safe, they all provide great results for our patients.
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. John Reitz has years of training and experience in helping patients reach their goals.
We will teach you specific stretches and exercises designed to help stabilize adjustments so that your body heals. 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 patients' return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Dr. John Reitz can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
SPINAL & POSTURAL SCREENINGS
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.
Your feet are the foundation of your body. They support you when you stand, walk or run. They also help protect your spine, bones, and soft tissues from damaging stress as you move around. Your feet perform better when all their muscles, arches, and bones are in their ideal stable positions.
By stabilizing and balancing your feet, Foot Levelers orthotics enhance your body's performance and efficiency and contribute to your total body wellness. Our orthotics complement Dr. John's treatment when you stand, walk, and live your active life.
CHIROPRACTIC FOR KIDS
The Chiropractic care that we provide is an effective and affordable program that addresses children's health conditions associated with the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Gentle, noninvasive and drug-free, chiropractic adjustments help and prevent a wide range of health problems. Recent research by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) found spinal manipulative therapy safe and successful in caring for children of all ages. Chiropractic America reports that natural, drug-free chiropractic care is sometimes more effective than traditional medical approaches for chronic earache, scoliosis, and neck pain.
Periodic ongoing adjustments at a young age may help stave off the above ailments before they begin. Proper spinal alignment now may delay or prevent degenerative bone or joint disease, such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. In addition to maintaining children's health, regular visits to our office will help instill the value of proactive health care in kids. They'll be more likely to monitor and manage their health as they grow up and less likely to be afraid or in denial of any health problems. Encouraging good lifelong health habits is one of chiropractic's best benefits for kids.
Lower Level Laser Therapy
We are proud to bring Erchonia's low-level light therapy (LLLT) to Sheboygan County!
When the body sustains an injury, cells are damaged and fail to function normally. The laser administers low-level light through the skin layers where it eventually is absorbed by the light-sensitive elements in the cell. Similar to photosynthesis where sunlight is absorbed by a plant and then converted into energy so that the plant can grow, the Erchonia light is absorbed by the cells causing a biochemical change that helps restore normal cell activity. LLLT has been found to offer superior healing and pain relieving effects compared to other electrotherapeutic modalities, especially in the early stages of acute injuries, and for chronic problems. LLLT is a universal method of treating muscle, tendon, ligament, connective tissue, bone and skin tissue with one simple piece of equipment, however, the best results are achieved when it is used to compliment other manual therapy techniques. It is non-invasive, drug-free, pain free and of short duration-usually 2-5 minute per treatment.
Studies have shown that low-level lasers can treat a variety of pain syndromes, injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions and pathologies up to 60 percent faster than traditional therapies. LLLT can treat both acute and chronic conditions, including:
golf & sports injuries
muscle sprains and strains
chronic or acute pain
inflammation from rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis
minor nerve damage
carpal tunnel syndrome
This is the laser being used by the National Football League, Major League Baseball, Professional Golf Association tour members, various members of the U.S. Olympic Team, and virtually every major professional sport.
However, the scope of this technology reaches far beyond the realm of high performance elite athletes and directly into the arena of your everyday life. Experience the powerful addition of the Erchonia laser now available at Better Life Chiropractic & Wellness!
