Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a drug-free, non-invasive manual approach to health care. Chiropractors must have an undergraduate degree prior to attending Chiropractic College. Their training consists of four intensive years of chiropractic education, which includes a one year internship under the guidance of a senior clinician where they develop and refine their skills. Chiropractors assess disorders related to the spine, nervous system and joins of the extremities and provide diagnosis, treatment and prevention of those disorders. The primary goal of chiropractic manipulation, also referred to an an adjustment, is to treat areas of decreased movement in the joints of the spine and extremities which can create a reaction in surrounding soft tissues (ligaments, muscles and nerves) resulting in pain, dysfunction and muscular spasm. Dr. Mandy utilizes the following modalities in her treatments: Spinal Manipulative Therapy (SMT)/Adjustments, Soft Tissue Therapy, Kinesio Taping ®, Thumper®, Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), Pre and Post-natal Chiropractic, Webster Technique, and Custom Fitted Orthotics.

Naturopathic Medicine

Acupuncture and Traditional Oriental Medicine
With many centuries of history behind it, traditional oriental medicine is still regarded as mainstream medical care in East Asia and is gaining increasing popularity around the world. Acupuncture, traditional herbs, and moxa are used to regulate the flow of energy (Qi, “Chee”) through the body’s organ systems and meridians.

Clinical Nutrition, Dietary Counseling and Supplementation
A good diet is the cornerstone of health, and making the right dietary choices can prevent and help treat disease. A Naturopathic Physician can help you optimize your diet and choose supplements that cater to your unique needs. Choosing the right diet can help correct fatigue, hyperactivity, skin conditions, anxiety and gastrointestinal disorders.

Lifestyle Counseling
Naturopathic Physicians are trained to help you bring balance back into your life. Whether you are a busy mom or you have a demanding job, finding time for everything that’s important can be difficult to fit in. Naturopathic Doctors view health as a lifestyle, and treat the mental and emotional components of a disease, not just the physical.

Botanical Medicine
Plant extracts in the form of tinctures (alcohol extract) or tea (water extract) can be used to treat many medical conditions and support overall health. Plants contain nutrients as well as constituents with medicinal actions. In contrast to pharmaceutical medications where only 1 or 2 active constituents are used, botanical medicines contain many other synergistic compounds that naturally occur within the plant.

Homeopathic Medicine
Homeopathy originated in Europe several centuries ago. Homeopathic medications contain small amounts of plant, mineral, or other naturally occurring substances. The principle of homeopathy is to use very dilute remedies, carefully selected based on the unique mental, physical and emotional symptoms of the patient, to bring the body’s energy back into balance.

Prolotherapy
Prolotherapy, also known as Regenerative Injection Technique (RIT), is a treatment in which a substance is injected into joints, ligaments and tendons to stimulate collagen and connective tissue repair. The injected solution contains dextrose, which promotes the body’s own ability to heal chronic injuries by initiating a controlled and localized inflammatory response. Connective tissues such as cartilage, ligaments and tendons generally heal poorly after injury due to their low blood supply. The patient is left with chronic pain, ligament laxity or joint instability due to incomplete healing. Prolotherapy is ideal for any musculoskeletal pain, sub-acute or chronic sports injury, or for a joint or connective tissue that heals poorly after an accident. Most patients require 3-6 treatments, and treatments are usually administered every 2-6 weeks. This treatment offers permanent results and is an excellent alternative to surgery for ligament repair or joint replacement.
