At Forest Creek 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 Round Rock office.
Chiropractic is a healthcare system that uses evidence based science to help patients suffering from back and neck pain as well as other conditions. Chiropractic is drug-free and non-invasive form of health care. Chiropractic care includes a wide variety of other treatments, including manual or manipulative therapies, postural and exercise education, ergonomic training (how to walk, sit, and stand to limit back strain), nutritional consultation, and physical therapy.
In addition, chiropractors today often work in conjunction with primary care doctors, pain experts, and surgeons to treat patients with pain. Most research on chiropractic has focused on spinal manipulation for back pain, but recent studies has also been shown that chiropractic spinal manipulation may be helpful for migraine, neck pain, and whiplash. Many other problems—including other musculoskeletal pain, headaches, asthma, carpal tunnel syndrome, and fibromyalgia—has also been studied.
We utilize the following methods to ensure you the best quality care:
- Chiropractic/spinal adjustments
- Soft tissue therapy
- Spinal decompression
- Cold laser therapy
- Electrical stimulation
- Stress management
- Nutritional counseling
Sports are not only to professional athletes. Treatments will extend beyond the spinal column which includes extremity care and treatment of muscles, ligament, and tendons. Sports participation lead to strains, sprains, and stress on different parts of the body.
Whether your personal goal is walking, running, swimming, we want you to get better as fast as possibly without the use of drugs or surgery, and get you back to an active life. Lifestyle changes may help prevent injuries from happening and flaring up again. Dr.Herb will identify how and why you were injured in the first place and then address that problem, lowering the chances of re-injury.
Depending on what type of sport you play, injuries will differ. Common injuries can include:
- Back and neck injuries
- Muscle strains
- Spinal misalignments
- Stress factors
- Shoulder injuries
- Knee/ankle injuries
- Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow
Swinging a golf club repetitively can create a lot of mechanical breakdown in your body. From your neck to your feet, you can experience the consequences of improper technique or timing that can lead to pain, which hurts both you and your golf game. Using 3-Dimensional swing analysis equipment and a deep understanding of golf swing mechanics, Dr.Herb can get you on the right track for swing efficiency and form. A more controlled, efficient swing will improve the way your body feels and the way you feel about your game. Our golf fitness program also utilizes some of the best golf swing research in the world. With Titleist Performance Institute certified therapists, we can compare your swing to that of the pros to help maximize you potential. Don’t just swing and hope for the best – use science to be the best.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises 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. 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 patient is a whole person, and helping 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 patient´s 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? Herbert Kellins can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
At Forest Creek Chiropractic, we believe massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
We are currently searching for a great massage therapist to add to our team.
