Unfortunately, many people are reluctant to seek chiropractic care after their sports-related injury or car accident trauma because of misconceptions about the practice. At Reza Chiropractic of St. Petersburg, we want to clear up the misunderstandings in order to promote health and wellness to pain patients in the area.
Our staff approaches medicine by focusing on how musculoskeletal health can affect the entire body’s function and overall wellbeing. Additionally, our practice emphasizes diagnosing, treating, and preventing discomfort by treating spinal misalignments and nervous system issues.
Reza Chiropractic Care Services
Because every person’s body is unique, every person deserves a specialized treatment plan for his pain. Dr. Reza Ghassemi of Reza Chiropractic in St. Petersburg offers patients comprehensive chiropractic care services, including spinal adjustments, deep tissue massages, lifestyle and nutritional counseling, and kinesiotaping. Before laying out a course of treatment, our staff will get to the root of your pain problems and make sure they are properly addressed.
Spinal adjustments, also known as manipulations, involve a trained physician moving the patient into a position where he will have access to the problem area. He will then apply a gentle, controlled force on the affected vertebrae to restore range of motion. The gentle twist or thrust against the joint will reposition the bones back into their proper alignment. In many instances, the manipulation will result in gas being released from the relieved pressure, and an audible crack or pop can be heard.
Patients often report feeling overwhelmingly positive results from receiving spinal manipulations. Some of these results include the following:
- Decreased neck, shoulder, and back pain
- Reduced arthritis and joint pain
- Lowered blood pressure
- Improved posture
- Less frequent headaches
Deep Tissue Massages
Our deep tissue massages go far beyond what a spa treatment can deliver. Chiropractic care massages aim to relieve muscle tension and realign the deep muscle and connective tissues. For many of our St. Petersburg patients, we recommend a combination of musculoskeletal adjustments and massages in order to alleviate the root cause of inflammation and irritation.
Deep tissue massages have been known to enhance immune system function, improve moods, loosen muscles, relieve migraine pain, and reduce swelling and inflammation.
Kinesiotaping is often recommended to athletic patients or patients with sports injuries in order to encourage healthy muscle movement. By applying a lightweight tape to the affected area, muscle movement is activated or inhibited, depending on circumstances. This creates tension so that circulation is improved in surrounding connective tissues and nerves, which reduces inflammation. If you’re a St. Petersburg patient suffering from tendonitis, shin splints, runner’s knee, sprains, or whiplash, this may be an effective chiropractic care method for treating your discomfort.
Lifestyle and Nutritional Counseling
The different foods we put into our bodies and the activities we participate in highly influence our overall health and well-being, which is why nutritional counseling is recommended to patients looking to improve their health and wellness. Our trained and experience staff can assess whether preexisting conditions are being aggravated simply by analyzing workout regimens and daily activities. This allows us to not only treat your symptoms, but also determine what you could be doing differently to avoid constant flair ups.
