Chiropractic adjustments are used to correct structural imbalances. The structural changes may be due to tense muscles, postural deformities, and improper nerve function. The adjustment is a way to move a joint and change the tone of muscles around that joint. The change in muscular tone has a feedback loop to the rest of the nervous system. At Family Chiropractors of Montclair we employ many different techniques to facilitate these changes. Once your problem is identified the doctor will utilize the technique best suited for you in order to correct your problem and enable your body to reach maximum health.
Chiropractic Practice Principles
- The body is a self-healing and self-regulating organism.
- The nerve system controls and coordinates all of the functions in the body.
- Any interference with the nerve system inhibits the body’s ability to regulate and heal itself.
- Interference to the nerve system is most commonly caused by misalignment of the bones called “subluxations.”
- “Subluxations” are most often caused by slips and falls, car accidents, stress, poor posture, poor sleep habits, sports impacts, birth process, etc.
- Maintaining a healthy and well-aligned spine enhances the body’s ability to get and stay well.
At Family Chiropractors of Montclair, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific
condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid
or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each
and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a
whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Montclair chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves
musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan
is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling
and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative
studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
Spinal & Postural Screenings
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Drs. Luis and Jayne Mizraji can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Montclair community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 973-783-5666 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
