At New Life 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 San Carlos office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. 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 Doctors of Chiropractic, Dr. Julia Mason & Dr. Janet McCaffrey have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment. Our doctors use many techniques that include; Diversified, Gonstead, Drop Table, SOT blocking and Activator. Adjusting techniques are tailored to your specific condition and need.
More and more women are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. During pregnancy weight-bearing changes occur. This can cause added stress to the spine. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help you to stay more comfortable and it can also help to facilitate your birth. (Click Here to read more about pregnancy and pediatric care)
Deep tissue, acupressure, sports, and cross fiber techniques release muscle spasm, improve circulation and reduce the effects of stress. We also offer pregnancy massage.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them 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 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 provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patientÂ´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Our doctors can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
