Serenity Life Wellness offers physical rehabilitation services. By working to achieve muscle, soft tissue and joint health, not only can you improve your quality of life but also prevent potential issues. We treat those injured in auto accidents, work-related accidents, and personal injury. From a wellness perspective, our doctors offer solutions to help you move from relief of pain, to corrective care, and then to wellness.
Many seek chiropractic care because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this will require two to three visits per week for a time.
Most people are under the assumption that if they don’t feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them – that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.
Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.
Our therapists find the underlying cause of many recurring misalignments. Through combined modalities, the focus for corrective care is to re-establish strives to reduce pain, increase flexibility, range of motion, and function, build strength, and correct posture. Physical therapy is often prescribed for patients following spine surgery, to treat soft tissue trauma, nerve inflammation/injury, muscle spasms, fractures, arthritis, and many other problems. This leads to optimal functionality of the central and peripheral nervous system. We present a thorough care plan which may include massage therapy, exercise units, follow-up exams and a post x-ray to show comparison.
Stress accumulates over time creating micro-trauma in your body causing fixations that reduce movement and inhibit neurological function. Our brain only receives 10% percent of pain. So we only feel or become aware of a problem after it is too late. When the body actually tells us something is wrong usually the body will be undergoing an inflammatory process which affects the area of complaint--more importantly the soft tissue, joints and neurological function of the human body.
Movement is Life. When the spine is not moving correctly the body starts to compensate. Over time the weakest link in your body will break, predisposing you to injury. Although you may feel fine; these fixations in the body create a cascade effect which starts with the compensation of the musculature on your body and finishes with an inflammatory process that leads into a chronic illness.
We do not prescribe drugs nor perform surgery, instead we perform various manipulations, or adjustments, and other treatments that focus on restoring and maintaining whole body health.
Manipulation involves applying pressure to a specific area to release the vertebra so it can freely align itself. Sometimes several adjustments are necessary until soft tissues connected to the vertebra remember their correct positions.
Maintenance is Key to Healthy Living. Once your body has fully healed, routine follow-up care helps ensure that your physical problems do not return, and keep your body in optimal condition. Just like continuing an exercise program and eating well in order to sustain the benefits of exercise and proper diet, it is necessary to continue post care to ensure the health of your musculo-skeletal system.
When you make physical care a part of your lifestyle, you avoid many of the aches and pains that so many people suffer through, your joints will last longer and you will be able to engage in more of the activities you love.
INJURED? AUTO ACCIDENT?
Many chronic issues begin with traumatic physical events such as auto accidents, work-related accidents, or personal injury. These occurrences may cause severe trauma to your spine & nervous system. It's important to care for your spine as soon after your accident as possible to prevent the soft tissue from healing in a malformed position.
Common symptoms of trauma to the nervous system after accidents include: sleepiness, dizziness, dull headaches, neck/back pain, loss of range of motion in the spine, numbness, and/or tingling in the extremities. While, the traditional medical community will check for gross (or large) traumas like bone fractures, & concussions, we treat the acute subluxations (misalignments of the vertebrae causing nerve damage) that the emergency rooms and medical doctors are not trained to identify.
